2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE 400 4MATIC® vs 2019 Acura MDX

Here we look at two SUV models that embody the true spirit of class and luxury. Mercedes-Benz and Acura both come from very different backgrounds, but that doesn’t stop them from continually lobbying for that top spot. See what changes were made from 2018 going into 2019 as we compare the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE 400 4MATIC® vs 2019 Acura MDX.

The GLE received a powertrain redesign for 2019, going from a GLE 350 to a GLE 400 4MATIC®. The changes are expected to impact drivers on a number of levels, first being the increased horsepower and torque. With that, you’ll have more towing capacity than a similarly-sized SUV. Additionally, the 4MATIC® feature that was once optional in the 2018 GLE 350 now comes standard with only a small bump in price. Check out the comparisons in the table below!
