2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE review | CarAdvice

The new Mercedes-Benz GLE is clearly a step up from its predecessor. We have slotted a direct comparison test against the BMW X5 into our calendar, which we're counting down to...
Granted, the bigger optional wheels hurt ride quality, the GLE400d’s six-pot engine is a big step up in cost over the fine 300d, and features such as ventilated seats, a wireless phone charger, and a tyre pressure monitor should really come standard on a $100k-plus vehicle. Moreover, that third seating row is priced at a level that makes it hard to recommend.
However the imposing design outside, gorgeous and high-tech cabin, big back seats, impressive powertrains and quietude all make it an enticing prospect. Given luxury SUV buyers often want the newest thing out there, it’ll lure many people to the Pointed Star brand, not to mention giving existing GLE owners something fresh to hop into.
CarAdvice's Mike Costello has a look at the new GLE at the car's Australian launch.
