2017 Mercedes-Benz GLE vs 2017 Land Rover Discovery

As crossover sales are skyrocketing in the U.S., luxury brands are taking advantage and improving their crossover models to make them the best of the best. To highlight one of our most popular crossovers, we did a quick and simple comparison of the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLE vs the 2017 Land Rover Discovery.

The most noticeable difference between the GLE and the Discovery is the price tag—the GLE starts out around $2,000 more, and for good reason. The GLE offers buyers more choice with three engine options, as opposed to the Discovery's two. The GLE also delivers better performance with more horsepower and torque than the Discovery. The Discovery does out-do the GLE in its cargo and towing capacities, but the GLE still offers plenty of room and hauling power to serve as the all-around perfect family crossover.
