Engadget Review

A refreshed luxury SUV that’s had all the technology thrown at it and it comes out the other side looking and driving great. The new MBUX continues to impress and the E-Active Body Control suspension, while weird at first should get a lot of people out of sandpits, but also let them show off their car’s dance moves.

Pros
  • E-Active Body Control suspension is more impressive when taken seriously
  • MBUX is still the best infotainment system on the market
  • 4Matic handling is great for a car this size
Cons
  • HUD can be overwhelming
  • We’re going to be overloaded with videos of GLEs dancing
  • Route-Based Speed Adaptation is still too cautious around corners

Bloomberg
As every last automaker seems to introduce smaller and/or electrified rigs, the GLE may even be among the last of a dying breed—the big, boxy SUVs that run by internal combustion and get along just fine ... In the meantime, Mercedes’s new GLE remains a gold standard of the old guard.

Popular Mechanics
Luxury cars ought to be out front on technology, but that’s not always how it works. That’s definitely the case with the GLE 450, though. If it were electric they could call it a 2025 model. For now, we’ll settle for 2020.
