The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class comes with all wheel drive, and rear wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 9-speed shiftable automatic.The GLE has been fully redesigned for 2020.Part of the second GLE generation introduced for 2020.

Excellent outward visibility

Cons
Options quickly drive the price up
Midgrade Airmatic suspension feels too floaty

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class ranked #2 in Luxury Midsize SUVs. Currently the Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class has a score of 8.4 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 9 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
State-of-the-art infotainment and safety technology
Cabin is opulent, serene, and spacious
Vibrant powertrains
Comfortable, balanced handling

Cons
Infotainment system can be distracting to use

By: 
usnews.com

Pros
Tremendously powerful six-cylinder engine
Grip and handling are excellent
Sleeker styling than the related X3 M

Cons
Excessively stiff ride
Rear headroom is a bit tight
Sloping roofline compromises cargo space and visibility

By: 
edmunds.com

Like the regular X4, the high-performance X4 M receives some subtle styling upgrades for 2022. Larger grille openings, narrower headlamps, and reworked front and rear bumpers distinguish the refreshed X4 M from last year's model. The infotainment display has grown from 10.3 to 12.3 inches. More meaningful to us driving enthusiasts is a rework of the SUV's engine to produce more torque; horsepower remains the same across both X4 M models.

Pros
Rip-snorting engine,
bonkers acceleration,
handling agile enough to trick you into thinking it's a sports car.

Cons
Hard-edged ride,
lacks the practicality of the mechanically-similar X3 M,
coupe-like styling may not be for everyone.
