2019 Mercedes GLE

53 New 2019 Mercedes GLE New Review

Get the midlevel SE trim. The SE features a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t bother about a stiff ride, although SE is still relatively comfortable on the road. The SE can be a great bargain considering all the safety and tech equipment you get for the money. Finally, the SE is available with a wide selection of options, to help you pick and choose which ones are right for the budget.

Crossover SUVs may be most of the rage, but there is still something to be said for the tried-and-true midsize sedan. Exhibit A: the 2019 Mercedes GLE. Coming off a redesign just last year, the 2019 Mercedes GLE is just a spacious, fuel-efficient sedan with lots of standard safety equipment and a lot of options to choose from.

Inside, the 2019 Mercedes GLE provides a simple yet feature-packed cabin, particularly if you choose among the upper trim levels. There are plenty of options to pick from along the way.

The 2019 Mercedes GLE is really as competent as they come. It’s well-priced generally, and modern feature content makes it supremely simple to drive.

Standard on every 2019 Mercedes GLE Safety Sense, which is really a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.

On the next rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and a vehicle alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.

You are able to consider the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with a number of additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a bigger 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.

Most of the features found on the upper trim levels could be included with the low trim levels as options. Other notable options incorporate a sunroof, a JBL sound system coupled with an integral navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.

As sedans go, the 2019 Mercedes GLE stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the trunk seat is easy to fold down to suit longer items. There are enough cabin storage options to create most people happy. Loading a vehicle seat is straightforward, too.
 

Small-item storage

7.0

Cabin storage is good however, not stellar. The forward center console bin is perfect for concealing items but includes a hard, slippery floor, so they really slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is really a decent size, and there are modest door pockets in leading and rear that are good for small water bottles only.
 

Cargo space

5.0

The 2019 Mercedes GLE includes a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles ensure it is simple to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
 

Child safety seat accommodation

9.0

It’s very easy to mount a vehicle seat, with obvious and easy to get at lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s room enough so the front seat will not need to be scooted all the way forward.
