Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class ranks 11 out of 22 Luxury Midsize SUVs. The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLE is a luxury midsize SUV that offers room for five in a lavish, safe cabin. However, in this very competitive category, the GLE doesn't present the most well-rounded package. Some rivals give you a better value.

Pros
Attractive engine lineup
Premium cabin
Large cargo hold in non-Coupe GLE
Outstanding safety scores and features

Cons
Clunky engine stop-start system
Poor visibility and small cargo space in Coupe

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class pared down its powertrains to gas only or a plug-in hybrid, although it still has plenty of stops in between for luxury buyers.
Where the parking lot ends and the drive-thru begins, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class is there to pick up dry cleaning, kids from school, and do it all over again tomorrow.

Pros
Plenty of base features that you'd expect on a luxury car
"Coupe" look for daring, non-conformists (with money)
Wide range of powertrains
Quiet, comfortable ride

Cons
Expensive performance versions
Relatively thirsty compared to others
Pricey advanced safety features
Coupe look can cost dearly

What are you looking for from a luxury SUV? If it's comfort, ample cargo space and many available features, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class could be for you. A wide range of available engines furthers its appeal.For 2017, the Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class has minor revisions to its standard feature content but is otherwise unchanged. A new diesel engine option could debut later in the model year.

Pros
Several engine choices
Quiet, upscale and well-built interior with a roomy backseat
Long list of standard safety and technology features.

Cons
Base V6's acceleration is merely adequate
Uninspiring handling when going around turns
Ride quality with the standard suspension isn't as comfortable as we expect.
