Advantages in the 2020 GLE

By now, you’ve probably already heard about the new Mercedes-Benz User Experience System. This system allows drivers to voice commands with their natural voice language and the system will respond accordingly. The important part of this system that separates it from other voice recognition systems is that you don’t need to enunciate everything clearly. The system picks up on your words easily so you can talk just like you would in a normal conversation. The BMW X5 doesn’t have this technology currently.

Another highlight of the 2020 GLE is the cargo space. With up to 80 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded down, it has more room than the X5, which has a maximum cargo capacity of just 72.3 cubic feet with the 2nd row seats folded down. By choosing the GLE, you’ll have an additional 3rd row seating available, which is ideal for larger families. Split-folding 2nd and 3rd row seats also allow for multiple seating and cargo configurations, depending on what you need the space for.

See for yourself why the 2020 GLE is the preferred choice for drivers everywhere. Stop by our dealership at Mercedes-Benz of Gilbert today to check it out or schedule a test drive on our website today!
