Are you comparing the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC vs. GLE? You’re not the only one who’s interested in how these Mercedes-Benz SUVs measure up against the other’s standard! Although you’ll love how you feel behind other model’s steering wheel, only one will be just right for your Norwalk and Weston adventures. Here’s what you should know starting off:

  • The Mercedes-Benz GLE is the larger of the two SUVs, and it also offers available seven passenger seating. However, the more compact GLC might be a better fit for your city drives.
  • You’ll get the same starting engine in both models, but each Mercedes-Benz SUV puts their equipment to work in a unique way. The GLC has the edge in fuel economy, but the GLE specs make it the clear pick for any driver who tows frequently.

Performance Specs: GLC or GLE?

  • GLC vs. GLE Engines: Comparing the GLC vs. GLE, you’ll notice that both models include a standard 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4. With 255 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque, you’ll enjoy satisfying acceleration and handling in either model.
  • GLC vs. GLE Fuel Economy: Efficiency isn’t just about what’s under the hood. The GLC gets up to 22 mpg city and 29 mpg highway, according to EPA estimates. The GLE gets 19 mpg city and 26 mpg highway.
