Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For 2021, All-new interior design with new dash, steering wheel and infotainment screen.Minor changes to exterior design.Lineup now consists of Long Range and Plaid trims.

Pros
Instant and powerful acceleration
Electric range is impressive
Three-row seating is available
Access to Tesla's extensive Supercharger network

Cons
Finicky upward-swinging rear doors impede functionality
Vast windshield lets too much sun and heat into the cabin
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto aren't offered

If you can look past the gimmickry of the falcon doors, the 2021 Tesla Model X can render the big gas-guzzling family SUV obsolete.

Pros
Shockingly good performance
Smooth, controlled ride
Quick, clear 17.0-inch touchscreen
A design like no other

Cons
Gimmicky falcon-wing doors
Disappointing interior space
High prices
Awkward-looking profile

The Model X has received a styling refresh both inside and out for 2021. Cleaner lines give the SUV a more modern appearance on the outside while the cabin benefits from a redesigned infotainment display and a new F1-style square steering wheel. The lineup now consists of the Long Range and the performance-oriented Plaid models.

Pros
Impressive all-electric driving range,
fast-charging capability,
giggle-inducing acceleration.

Cons
Interior lacks luxury panache,
top-hinged Falcon Wing doors are fussy,
mediocre fit-and-finish.

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:

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
