Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Mercedes GLE estate?

Our preferred used luxury SUV is the Audi Q7 because it manages to offer all the comforts of the GLE, but with better long-distance cruising refinement and superior handling dynamics.

A Land Rover Discovery might be an unwieldy beast in comparison on the road, but it'll make mince-meat of the Mercedes off the beaten path. What's more, the 3rd row is far better for adults, although the boot is tiny with the rearmost seats in place.

Overview

Some rivals are more practical and better to drive, but the Mercedes GLE has a dazzling interior, is a comfortable cruiser, and comes with plenty of equipment.

  • Lots of standard equipment
  • Excellent second row leg room
  • Strong performance
  • Boot is smaller than some rivals
  • Cramped third row
  • Numb steering
