The Mercedes-Benz GLE SUV has been raising the bar in the mid-size SUV segment for generations. Stylish, capable, and well-equipped, the 2018 GLE SUV is something to be proud of. See how it stacks up against another popular luxury SUV in the following 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE vs 2018 Acura MDX comparison.
Although the Mercedes-Benz GLE is more expensive than the Acura MDX, this indicates that the GLE has many more standard features and amenities to make the driving experience more enjoyable. The GLE also offers the power of choice under the hood, including a hybrid option, while the MDX only offers one powertrain option. The MDX is slightly more efficient than the GLE, but not enough to be a deal breaker. Finally, both SUVs offer plenty of cargo space to store the essentials but the GLE boasts a much higher towing capacity, so you can carry along more for the ride.
