Mercedes-Benz GLC vs. Mercedes-Benz GLE
2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC
2017 Mercedes-Benz GLE
Performance That Inspires
For luxury SUV shoppers looking for a practical daily driver that can still excite, we present you with the Mercedes-Benz GLC and GLE models. It’s worth noting that even the base GLC 300 4MATIC® is capable of producing a muscular 241 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque with its turbocharged 2.0L inline-4 engine; and, unbelievably, the excitement only goes up from there.
Those looking to really mix things up will have a field day with the range of powertrain options available with the Mercedes-Benz GLE, spanning from a biturbo V6 on the GLC 400 4MATIC® all the way up the awe-inspiring biturbo V8 on the Mercedes-AMG® GLE 63 S 4MATIC® that delivers a heart-pounding 577 hp and 561 lb-ft of torque.
Interior That Impresses
You choose an SUV for its utility, and you choose a Mercedes-Benz for its second-to-none luxury. When you choose the GLC, you’ll enjoy premium cabin flourishes such as stylish metallic finishes, an assortment of colour and trim options, and forward-thinking conveniences like the 40/20/40 split-folding rear seat for cabin versatility, 8-way power adjustable and heated front seats, and even a standard 7-inch high-resolution colour touchpad that integrates your music, hands-free calling, and more within its display.
Inside the GLE, you’ll relish not only the heated power front seats but also heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, and premium touches like a cabin-air purification system and, on the V8 and hybrid models, soft-close doors, not to mention a wide assortment of infotech options.
Safety You Can Count On
Those on the hunt for a trustworthy family car that puts the safety of its occupants first will delight in both Mercedes-Benz models, thanks to their array of standard and available safety features. Both the GLC and GLE can be outfitted with the advanced PRE-SAFE® PLUS system which prepares the cabin for a potential rear-end collision by making adjustments to the restraints and brakes. ATTENTION ASSIST monitors up to 70 driving factors, providing Mercedes-Benz drivers with an alert if signs of drowsiness or fatigue are detected. Plus, for steering support, there’s Parking Assist and the DISTRONIC system with Steering Pilot; while the former can maneuver you into a parking space hands-free, the latter two features work together to adjust your speed, even in stop-and-go situations, and help maintain your position in the center of your lane.
