Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe is unchanged for 2019

Pros
Premium-feeling and well-trimmed interior
Many standard safety and technology features
Surprisingly comfortable ride quality, given its performance abilities
Even the pavement-pounding AMG GLE 63 S is easy to drive around town

Cons
Roofline compromises backseat headroom
Cargo space is similar to that of a compact SUV
Only two trim levels available
Heavy, with minimal off-road capability

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE finishes in the middle of our luxury midsize SUV rankings. It's comfortable and posh, but the GLE doesn’t rank higher because it isn't as athletic or engaging to drive as many class rivals.

Pros
Powerful engines in AMG trims
Lots of features
Elegant interior

Cons
Rivals are more athletic and fuel-efficient
Coupe models have limited cargo space
Unsettled ride over bigger road bumps

By:

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class can be outfitted to please nearly every luxury-SUV buyer.

Pros
Large variety of body styles and options
Well-done coupe styling
Wealth of powertrain choices
Composed, quiet ride

Cons
Pricey, especially AMG models
Only hybrid models are somewhat efficient
COMAND needs an OVERHAUL
Most popular options locked in expensive package
Coupe loses much-needed utility and costs more

With its rugged body-on-frame construction, heavy duty hardware and new-age technology that enable it to crawl over obstacles, the Prado is not for pretenders.
To be fair, the Prado is far from rudimentary. It feels solid on the road at highway speeds and around town, although you quickly learn to take roundabouts a little more gingerly because of the tendency for big, tall and heavy 4WDs like this to lean in corners.
The new engine is a worthwhile freshen-up for the Prado but doesn't suddenly transform the vehicle.

Likes
New diesel engine is more refined
Long range due to better economy and 150L tanks
Genuine off-road ability

Dislikes
Towing capacity unchanged at 2500kg
The price is high, especially on top end models
Interior design starting to look a little dated

Cast an eye over the SUV market and you’ll see very few truly off-road capable vehicles. One of them is the Toyota LandCruiser Prado, and here we’ve got the most capable Prado of all, the top-shelf Kakadu.The LandCruiser Prado Kakadu is a very good off-the-shelf off-roader, with its blend of both tradi-tional and modern off-road equipment. With decent all-terrain or mud-terrain tyres (which nearly all standard SUVs would need) we reckon the Kakadu could go just about anywhere.

Likes
Rear axle articulation
KDSS system
Crawl control

Dislikes
Lack of power and torque
Over-bonnet vision
No height-adjustable front suspension
