The Mercedes-Benz GLE Class is the daddy of their SUV range, rubbing shoulders with the likes of the Volvo XC90 and the Audi Q7. It is an imposing looking car and has serious road presence. It has an equally impressive and inviting interior that feels extremely refined with lots of nice soft-touch materials and high-quality leather. The touchscreen infotainment system is easy to navigate and standard equipment is as comprehensive as you would expect from a vehicle of this class. All models apart from the entry level come with seven electrically controlled folding seats as standard and there is ample room inside for driver and passengers alike. There is a decent sized boot that comes with nets, tie-down hooks and underfloor storage. There is a range of petrol and diesel engines (including a mild-hybrid petrol) that all offer a fine blend of performance, grunt and refinement. All models apart from the 350d come with air suspension which makes for an enjoyable drive.
