What's New in the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE 400?

The erstwhile GLE 350 entry-level model has morphed into the GLE 400 4Matic. The GLE 550e plug-in hybrid has been discontinued. Wood trims become standard in the AMG GLE 63 and 63 S models.

Which GLE 400 is the Best?

The big news is that a fresh generation for the 2020 model year is imminent. Some buyers like to wait for a new model's bugs to be ironed out, however, and now could be the time to negotiate a sweet deal on an outgoing version. If it was us, we'd put the GLE 43 at the top of our list.

2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE 400 vs the competition

2019 Acura MDX -- Although the Acura badge won't measure up to the 3-pointed star in some people's minds, the MDX is a highly capable luxury SUV with reasonable pricing and a reputation for durability.

2019 Audi Q7 -- Impressively luxurious in virtually every respect. One of the best in this class.

2019 BMW X5 -- The GLE's closest rival, with sharper handling and a bolder design, but not the GLE's comfortable, relaxed driving experience. An all-new generation debuts for this model year.

2019 Lexus RX -- Offers much more distinctive styling than the GLE and driving dynamics that might be considered sporty compared with older generations. It also has a long list of technology features and a reputation for excellent long-term reliability.

2019 Volvo XC90 -- Handsome and plush, the XC90 doesn't have any sporty variants, but there is a plug-in hybrid.

Used Mercedes-Benz GL-Class -- For extra space and seating, consider the full-size GL-Class luxury SUV. Prices are more affordable as a used or certified pre-owned (CPO) model.
