2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE review | CarAdvice

FULL STORY: www.caradvice.com.au/780691/2020-mercedes-benz-gle-review-australia/?MERCEDESBENZ&YT_DESC
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.

    This is the new low for Car Advice channel and this reviewer should be fired straight away. No passion no emotion, no personal thought on the car being reviewed, no drive no feel, nothing but spec reading. What a crap sorry Mercedes your money not well spent on this ads.

    Thanks for the INFOMERCIAL, but when will we get a test drive review?

    The most disappointing review I’ve seen from this channel so far. Covered everything like a car catalogue would but didn’t talk about how the car drives on Australian roads. “First Oz Drive” as a title is wrong and misleading.

    I think you missed including the review part of the video. All I got was a summary of the spec sheet.

    It isn't stingy on Mercedes Benz part, by changing more for some things. This car is only $100,000 in Australia because of the luxury car tax, and the weakness of the Australian dollar in comparison, to the Euro. Mercedes Benz would only get around $45 euros for this car

    Can this even be called a car review? All features, packages, technologies. How does it drive?

    As always ‘Car Advice’ great review. Not a car that I would buy and certainly stingy on so many things being optional in such a premium model.

    Wireless phone charging pad on the v167 GLE isn't useful - most phones don't seem to fit, and if you're going to use Carplay/Android Auto anyway (with the sole USB port supporting this next to the charging pad), it seems very pointless. XS Max owners need not bother as well.
