Mercedes was among the first automakers to introduce a luxury SUV, and the Mercedes-Benz GLE is the direct descendant of that original M-Class model. Available in standard and four door coupe body styles, the Mercedes GLE offers spacious accommodations for up to five people and, on occasion, two more with the available third-row seat. Interiors blend striking design elements with top-quality materials and the latest technology. Engines range from a turbocharged four-cylinder to a V8, and they use mild-hybrid electrification to boost efficiency and performance. Most buyers won't expect outright athleticism from a midsize luxury SUV, but the comfortable and easy-to-drive Mercedes-Benz GLE is quite quick when properly equipped.
