We’ve Put the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE to the Test!

If you’re shopping for a new SUV, you may have considered the 2018 BMW X5, 2017 Infiniti QX70, or another similar vehicle. Both of these luxury five-seaters offer notable power, fuel economy, and interior comfort. However, we at Fletcher Jones Motorcars of Fremont believe the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE SUV is more than a match, particularly in the towing and safety departments. To show San Jose and Newark drivers what the new GLE can do, we’ve pitted it against the BMW X5 and Infiniti QX70. Take a look at the comprehensive chart below to decide for yourself which SUV is most compatible with your family’s needs!
