Enjoy Substantial Comfort


Naturally, an SUV as confident as the new 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 looks the part too. Standing proudly on polished wheels, it takes on an intimidating stance that pairs well with its athletic posture and defined curves. Emblazoned with the brand's famed three-pointed star on the front, it even leaves a lasting impression. Better still is its richly crafted interior. Appointed with premium upholstery and finished with wood and metallic accents, the cabin is seemingly overflowing with luxury. Unlike its rival, the new BMW X5, it even comes with standard heated front seats so you and your companion can stay warm through colder winter and spring months. As for convenience? There is a ton of that onboard as well. In fact, this specific model boasts a maximum cargo volume of 80.3 cubic feet which is far greater than the BMW's 66.0 cubic feet of space to compete. Clearly, the new Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 offers amenities galore! Other contenders can hardly compete!
