2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 4MATIC vs 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Velar

Big name luxury sometimes comes in a smaller package. That’s certainly the case with the Mercedes-Benz GLE and the Land Rover Range Rover. These small SUVs pack quite a punch, both in terms of power and luxury. Don’t let yourself get smacked around on the road; consider bypassing the mainstream SUVs that block the roads and pick up something extraordinary in one of these two. We’ll lend our support to you as we toss down a match-up between the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 4MATIC vs 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Velar.

The lower MSRP in the GLE 350 4MATIC isn’t necessarily the highlight between the two, but it’s definitely worth mentioning. The few thousand you’ll save by choosing the GLE 350 4MATIC might be better used toward something else, such as extra features, a lot of extra fuel or Christmas presents for the family (it doesn’t hurt to get an early head start!).

Performance in the 2018 GLE 350 4MATIC

There’s nothing wrong with blowing magical luxury pixie dust all over a vehicle, but if that vehicle is an SUV or a bigger model like that, you’re probably expecting a host of performance features. Unfortunately for Range Rover Velar drivers, the luxury hits a superficial level and lets off there. Mercedes-Benz has a whirlwind of luxury in their vehicles from all different aspects, and the GLE 350 4MATIC is no different. With a standard towing capacity of 7,200 lbs, you can rest assured your SUV is ready to do the dirty work if need be. Toting an all-wheel drive system, DYNAMIC SELECT performance mode adapter, AGILITY CONTROL suspension and more, you’d better believe you’ll be reaching a whole new level of driving excellence with the 2018 GLE 350 4MATIC.

When it comes time to search for a new luxury SUV, we hope you’ll keep the GLE 350 4MATIC in the back of your mind. Contact us to learn more or to check out our inventory!
