While SUVs are popular because of their space and size, the design can leave much to be desired. The Coupe body style freshens things up and gives it a much sportier, sleeker look. Because of this, many customers decide that, despite the slight advantage the SUV has in terms of cargo space and technologies, the Coupe is still a more attractive option. However, if you are looking to squeeze every cubic foot of cargo space out of your vehicle, you may want to pick the 2021 Mercedes-AMG® GLE SUV.
