2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 vs Land Rover Range Rover Velar

A class-leader since its initial introduction more than 20 years ago, the Mercedes-Benz GLE SUV still leads the way in all areas of driving—from comfort to performance to safety, the 2018 GLE keeps the future looking brighter. To highlight the 2018 GLE and see how it stacks up against competition, we created a simple 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 vs Land Rover Range Rover Velar comparison.

The GLE 350 and Velar are well-priced for their segment, but the GLE’s higher starting price is an indication that it offers better value with more standard features to enjoy. The GLE boasts a 3.5L V6 while the Velar sports a 2.0L I-4, giving the Velar an efficiency advantage during city and highway driving. The GLE makes up for its lack of power with 50 more horses under the hood than the Velar. The GLE also offers much more cargo space for adventure gear, as well as a higher towing capacity.
