5 reasons to buy the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE450

1. Upscale experience

If you're looking for a well-appointed luxury SUV, consider the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE 450. The interior is extremely quiet, providing a serene retreat from the outside world. You won't mind spending extended time in the heated and power-adjustable front seats, with an available massage feature to soothe your senses. From the simulated leather seats and ambient lighting to the padded dashboard and plush carpeting, the GLE 450 offers an indulgent driving experience.

2. Roomy cabin

Want a midsize luxury SUV that gives you plenty of room to stretch out and get comfortable? You'll love the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE 450. You and your co-pilot will get a generous 40.5 inches of headroom and 40.3 inches of legroom, and second-row passengers will enjoy 39.6 inches of headroom and 40.9 inches of legroom. There's also room for car seats in the second row, and the LATCH anchors are easy to access. If you want to take even more people along for the ride, look for a model with available third-row seats to increase seating capacity from five to seven.

3. Plenty of cargo space

Not only is this midsize luxury SUV great for people-hauling, it's also ideal for transporting all their gear. There are plenty of cubbies, compartments, and cup holders for the items you want to keep close at hand. For larger cargo, there's 33.3 cu-ft of storage space behind the second-row seats, which expands to a whopping 74.9 cu-ft when the rear seats are folded. And if you want to tow some toys, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 with the standard turbocharged 3.0L six-cylinder engine can tow an estimated 7,700 lbs, when properly equipped.

4. Available E-Active suspension

Want a luxury SUV that can lean into turns like a motorcycle? Shop for a 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 with the available E-Active Body Control package. You'll love the handling stability, as the self-leveling suspension makes the SUV feel sure-footed at any speed. If you're looking for acceleration, the 2020 GLE 450 with standard all-wheel drive and the 362-hp turbocharged 3.0L six-cylinder engine can go from 0 to 60 mph in 5.5 seconds (according to the manufacturer, when new)—pretty quick for an SUV.

5. Advanced tech features

If you're shopping for a luxury SUV, you're likely also looking for cutting-edge tech. The 2020 GLE 450 delivers with a robust and user-friendly Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) infotainment system. The MBUX natural voice assistant (“Hey, Mercedes") allows you to operate many cabin features or locate destinations just by talking. You'll also get a 12.3-inch touchscreen; a navigation system; five USB-C ports; HD Radio; and Bluetooth®, Apple CarPlay®, and Android Auto capability. Look for a model with the available Burmester® surround sound system for an immersive audio experience.
