2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 vs 2018 Lexus GX 460

Ever since its initial release more than 20 years ago, the Mercedes-Benz GLE SUV has continued to raise the bar in its segment. A leader in luxury, performance, and capability, the 2018 GLE offers the latest in innovative technology, smart safety, and premium comforts. To highlight the refreshed GLE SUV, we created a 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 vs 2018 Lexus GX 460 model comparison.

Both SUV’s are competitively priced, but the slightly higher starting price of the GLE indicates that the GLE offers more standard features. The GLE has a power advantage over the GX, despite the fact that it utilizes a smaller engine. Furthermore, thanks to its smaller engine, the GLE achieves five more MPG on the highway than the GX—offering the perfect balance of power and efficiency. Add the GLE’s superiority in cargo space and towing capacity and it’s clear why the GLE SUV is a flagship model.
