Pros
Absurd acceleration
Long range
Lots of cargo space
Large, crisp touch screen

Cons
Inconsistent build quality
Second row has less legroom than rivals
No Apple CarPlay or Android Auto

The 2018 Tesla Model X is the only all-electric SUV you can buy this year. It’s swift, pleasant to travel in, and relatively practical, save for its somewhat silly doors.

Pros
Only all-electric crossover you can buy
Amazing performance
That 17-inch touchscreen
Comfortable, quiet ride

Cons
Overinflated Model S looks
Gimmicky rear doors
Easily hits six figures
Not as spacious as you’d think

By:

Tesla updates its vehicles on an ongoing basis rather than at discrete model-year intervals. As such, there's no clear-cut "new for 2018" information. Features and trim levels are tweaked sporadically. Notable recent changes compared to 2017 Model Xs include new fold-flat second-row seating and streamlining of the Model X's optionsavailability. The 90D trim level has also been discontinued.

PROS
Instant, giddying acceleration
Good range for an electric vehicle
Three-row seating is available
Very quiet

CONS
Vast windshield lets far too much sun and heat into the cabin
Finicky upward-swinging rear doors impede functionality

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

By:

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.
