Comfort and Convenience in the 2018 GLE 350

What’s a luxury SUV without the comfort and convenience? You’ll find plenty of it in both of these models, but here’s the difference: Mercedes-Benz has many more years of creating luxury models under their belt, so they’ve been able to incorporate more innovative features not found in vehicles like the Yukon Denali. Take the front power lumbar with massage feature for example. The front two seats adjust eight ways and can be activated to massage the driver and passenger. We get it, long road trips can be a real damper on the body. Soothe those tensions and relax with the feature not available in the Yukon Denali. A power liftgate, power tilt/sliding sunroof, dual zone climate control, and a retractable luggage cover are just a few of the standard comfort and convenience features you’ll find in the contemporary wonder that is the GLE 350.
