2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 4MATIC® vs 2018 Porsche Cayenne
Often lost in the world of luxury brands are the fully-capable SUVs they make. Sure, sports cars and classy, elegant sedans seem to make up the majority of this segment, but if you don’t think luxury SUVs also have a little extra icing on the cake, you’d be wrong. Truth be told, these bigger vehicles almost have even more potential as their designers lick their chops at the thought of everything they can fit inside. Besides having a spacious interior with state-of-the art designs and other worldly technology, these SUVs can pack a punch in the performance aisle as well. There’s so much to see with luxury SUVs; why would you limit yourself to the stereotypical sedan if you know you want something bigger anyway? Check out two popular options here as we compare the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 4MATIC® vs 2018 Porsche Cayenne.

When it comes to name familiarity, both of these brands are pretty high on the list. While Porsche has some definite high-quality vehicles in its arsenal, it’s hard to argue that the higher price tage is justified. Is it really worth paying more for the Porsche title just so you can say you drive a Porsche? If that’s you then go ahead and go for it, but when it comes to overall driving performance and interior luxury, we see a definite difference between these two. That difference puts the 2018 GLE 350 4MATIC® ahead in a number of ways while keeping more cash in your pocket. Sounds like a win-win, right?
