2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE350 puts on a fresh face

Mercedes' stalwart SUV picks up some new tricks for 2020, including some great tech.

Cars are Andrew's jam, as is strawberry. After spending years as a regular ol' car fanatic, he started working his way through the echelons of the automotive industry, starting out as social-media director of a small European-focused garage outside of Chicago. From there, he moved to the editorial side, penning several written features in Total 911 Magazine before becoming a full-time auto writer, first for a local Chicago outlet and then for CNET Cars.

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.
