2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE 400 4MATIC® vs 2019 Mazda CX-9 Signature

Mercedes-Benz has set the bar high for luxury vehicles, which is why it’s such a challenge for more conventional automakers to compete with them as they try to climb the ranks. Mazda has added a new trim level to their SUV lineup (Signature) that is designed to provide quality features like those found in a Mercedes-Benz. How did they do? See here as we compare the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE 400 4MATIC® vs 2019 Mazda CX-9 Signature.

The base trim level for the GLE surpasses the CX-9’s top trim level in performance, as it gets more power under the hood thanks to the 3.0L V6 biturbo engine. Mercedes-Benz upgraded the performance, which is why the 2018 GLE 350 is now the 2019 GLE 400 4MATIC®, and yes, it now comes standard with the 4MATIC® all-wheel drive feature. It also has a smooth 9G-TRONIC® nine-speed automatic transmission.
