Are you sick of driving a boring conventional SUV? Sure, conventional SUVs may deliver reasonable performance and utility, but that’s only a piece of the puzzle. Luxury SUVs will open up a whole new avenue of driving that you probably didn’t even know existed. Mercedes-Benz continues to be one of the top names in the industry, offering better performance than most while incorporating sophisticated technology and outstanding comfort and convenience inside. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE 400 4MATIC®* is a stellar choice if you want a healthy mix of size and performance without too much bulk. It compares favorably against other luxury SUVs such as the 2019 Maserati Levante, which is priced quite a bit above the GLE 400 4MATIC®*. Does that higher price tag equate to more features inside? Not quite. Take a look at the table below for some head-to-head comparisons!
2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE 400 4MATIC®*
2019 Maserati Levante
|329 hp/354 lb-ft||Horsepower/Torque||345 hp/369 lb-ft|
|9-speed automatic||Transmission||8-speed automatic|
|80.3 cubic ft||Max Cargo Volume||57.4 cubic ft|
Perhaps the first figure that jumped out at you was the MSRP comparison between these two. The Levante comes in over $20,000 more expensive than the GLE 400 4MATIC®* without much more than a little extra horsepower and torque to show for it. The fact of the matter is that the GLE 400 4MATIC®* wins in most other categories, with more cargo space, an extra transmission speed, and a greater towing capacity (the GLE 400 4MATIC®* can tow up to 7200 lbs). Both models come standard with all-wheel drive.
Inside the 2019 GLE 400 4MATIC®* you’ll find state-of-the-art technology with features like DYNAMIC SELECT® driving mode adjustment, ECO Start/Stop, and industry-firsts like ATTENTION ASSIST® and PRESAFE®. Luxury continues in the comfort zone with available heated and ventilated seating, power driver seat with memory and available massage feature, and 3-zone automatic climate control. Numerous audio and entertainment features are also available and can be accessed on the infotainment screen in the center console.
