Mercedes' stalwart SUV picks up some new tricks for 2020, including some great tech.
Since the 1990s, the Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class (previously the M-Class) has slowly helped convert luxury sedan buyers into luxury SUV buyers.
It's not hard to see why, either -- people love sitting up high, and wrapping that experience in a traditional Mercedes-Benz shell means no sacrifices in terms of feeling fancy.
The 2020 GLE-Class builds upon everything that's come before with a continued focus on the places that count, and the result is worth your time.
The Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class is part of a very busy field...
If you want more focus on driving dynamics, the BMW X5 and Porsche Cayenne are similarly priced and sized, while technophiles (and third-row fans) will like the space and slick screens in the Audi Q7.
The Volvo XC90 offers its luxury in a more staid-looking wrapper, but I don't think it's as comfortable as the GLE-Class.
Yet, despite standing in the middle of a thick crowd, the Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class continues to impress.
The 2020 GLE350 aims to keep things efficient without sacrificing one iota of the luxury that buyers have come to expect from a three-pointed star on the grille.
For as long as it's been kicking, the GLE feels fresh as a daisy.
