Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class ranked #12 in Luxury Midsize SUVs. Currently the Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class has a score of 8.3 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 46 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Lots of powerful engine choices
Posh interior
Above-average cargo space (in non-coupe models)
Lengthy features list

Cons
Less athletic than many competitors
Coupe has limited cargo space and visibility
Finicky engine stop-start system

Performance, plug-in, or pedestrian: there’s a 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE for almost every luxury-SUV buyer.

Pros
Wide palette of body styles, powertrains, trims
GLE Coupe, for the well-to-do contrarian
Powertrain choice abounds
Composed, quiet ride

Cons
AMG = $$$
Not so fuel-efficient
Addled infotainment interface
Odd feature availability
Coupe body costs money, space

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The AMG GLE 43 is slightly more powerful, increasing engine output from 362 horsepower to 385 hp. Otherwise, the Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class is unchanged for 2018.

PROS
Multiple available powertrains make each model distinct
Interior is quiet, upscale and roomy
Abundant list of standard safety, tech and luxury features
AMG variants are seriously quick

CONS
Not many places to store small personal items
Punishing ride on AMG models, with little benefit to handling
Ride quality with the standard suspension isn't as comfy as we expect
Base V6's acceleration is merely adequate

By: 
edmunds.com

The heart of the new Cayenne E-Hybrid plug-in is its powertrain, which follows a now familiar recipe: Take the root model’s engine and transmission—in this case a turbo 3.0-liter V-6 from the Cayenne tuned to 335 horsepower—then add a big battery and an electric motor.

Pros
A hybrid that tows 7716 pounds,
smooth transitions from electric to gas and back.

Cons
So nice that Porsche might become a company known more for hybrids than sports cars.

By: 
caranddriver.com

The 2019 Porsche Cayenne twists performance DNA with a strand of off-road talent, and bridges the gap between “Porsche” and “SUV” perfectly.

Pros
Yes, performance; yes, SUV
Smart interior ditches pounds of buttons
All the custom touches
Five adults fit, no problem

Cons
Tech wizardry aside, still a big SUV
Ride, steering can be too stiff
Oh wow, check out the prices
