Power, practicality, and grace are rolled into one in this luxury SUV from Mercedes-Benz, and there are a few ways it separates itself from the pack, so be sure to read the comparison below if you're considering a vehicle from this class.


The Mercedes-Benz GLE vs. The Porsche Cayenne

  • Despite being the shorter of the two, the Mercedes-Benz GLE has a much larger cargo area behind the second row of seats than the Porsche Cayenne, which also gives it a much greater max cargo capacity than the Cayenne. Plus, the Mercedes-Benz GLE comes standard with roof rails for storing gear outside the cabin while the Cayenne doesn't.
  • The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE earned a 2018 Top Safety Pick award from the IIHS, so you can be more confident in how safe your Allendale passengers are. The Porsche Cayenne did not undergo testing by the IIHS.

The Mercedes-Benz GLE vs. The BMW X5

  • For truly daring drivers around Grandville, both the Mercedes-Benz GLE and the BMW X5 offer special lines with truly thrilling engines. The Mercedes-Benz AMG GLE 63 S comes with a 5.5-liter V8 engine that houses 577 horsepower and 561 pound-feet of torque, which are numbers that the BMW X5 M cannot match.
  • If you find yourself loading up your car with gear on lots of drives, the Mercedes-Benz GLE is the clear choice between the two as it can fit more behind the front row of seats, can tow heavier trailers, and it comes standard with roof rails for bikes, kayaks, or whatever else you want to bring along.
  • The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE is always watching the road ahead for you with its standard Active Brake Assist feature, which is part of why it earned a 2018 Top Safety Pick honor from the IIHS. The BMW X5 doesn't come standard with a similar feature and it earned no award from the IIHS.

The Mercedes-Benz GLE vs. The Audi Q7
