Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 Takes on Lexus RX350

With the growing popularity of the luxury SUV, Denver-area drivers have a wide selection of capable vehicles to choose from. However, when it comes to the all-important balance between performance, style, features and functionality, the choice becomes easier. No other luxury SUV can match the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 for its combination of quality, capability and safety features – although many will claim to.

With its powerful 3.5-liter V6, confident off-road handling, and unmatched Mercedes-Benz quality, the GLE 350, which replaced the ML 350, is the obvious winner among mid-sized luxury SUVs. But how does the popular GLE 350 stack up against one of its worthy competitors? When going head-to-head against the Lexus RX350, it quickly becomes clear why the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 maintains its position at the top of this hard-fought category – it simply outclasses the competition.

GLE 350 Technology and Safety Features vs. Lexus RX350

From the standard power liftgate, heated front seats and dual-zone automatic climate control, to the available heated and cooled cup-holders, the RX350 just can’t compete. There?s also Mercedes-Benz’ COMAND® system and available Bang & Olufsen premium audio system that’s not available anywhere else.

The Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 continues the tradition of achieving the NHTSA and IIHS safety rating agencies top safety scores.
