The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class ranked #12 in Luxury Midsize SUVs. Currently the Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class has a score of 8.3 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 46 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

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

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

The 2020 GLB-Class is the smallest Mercedes that can be equipped with three rows of seats.

Pros
Chunky styling
Lots of tech
Right-sized

Cons
Third row looks tight
Too many Mercedes SUVs?
Bound to be expensive

By:

Slotting into the narrow space between the GLA-Class and the GLC-Class is the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB-Class compact crossover, but this mini-ute pulls its boxier styling from the vaunted GLE- and G-Class SUVs. We saw the concept in April at the Shanghai auto show and Mercedes-Benz unveiled the production model, in all its mini-ute glory, at an event in June; we expect the GLB to be on sale by the end of 2019.Behind the GLB's big, grille-mounted three-pointed star is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine capable of 221 horsepower. The engine is paired with an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and either front- or all-wheel drive. Mercedes-Benz estimates a zero-to-60-mph time of 6.9 seconds.

Pros
Spacious for both passengers and cargo
Strong overall performance
Exceptional ride and seat comfort

Options can quickly run the cost up
