How Else Do They Compare?

The 2017 GLE comes equipped with the driver in mind. After a stressful day at work, who wouldn’t want a nice massage? With the GLE, you don’t have to wait until you get home. An available Front Power Lumbar with Massage allows you to adjust the seat eight different ways to contour to your shape and then hit you with a massage where you need it most. Heated seats are always appreciated in the winter. While both of these SUVs offer them, only the GLE includes it as a standard feature. Front Power Memory Seats, Vehicle Location System, Power Sunroof/Moonroof and a first-aid kit are just a few of the other standard features in the less-expensive GLE that cost extra or simply aren’t available in the Cayenne.
