The GLE, Mercedes-Benz five-seat SUV, replaced the former ML. The revamped GLE is a refined vehicle with an impressively quiet cabin and meticulous fit and finish, which combine to provide a luxurious atmosphere. Handling is responsive but let down by vague steering and an unimpressive showing at its cornering limits. The ride is supple if a bit firm. The standard V6 serves up smooth and powerful acceleration and yields 18 mpg, not bad for a vehicle of its size and weight. Some controls have improved with the current generation but others remain complicated. Towing capacity is generous. Other available engines include turbocharged AMG variants.
The GLE's interior is treated to the usual Mercedes attention to detail, including standard aluminum trim, available black piano lacquer or various grains of wood. All of the seats are very spacious and supportive. The infotainment system can be cumbersome to use. The electronic shifter can also be fussy and unintuitive to use, and the car lacks some desired safeguards to prevent it from rolling away when parked, should the driver accidentally not select Park.
