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.

Ready to take a closer look? Compare the Mercedes-Benz GLC vs. GLE in-depth, then get behind the wheel at Mercedes-Benz of Fairfield.

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.
  • GLC vs. GLE Towing: You can tow heavy loads with either Mercedes-Benz SUV, as long as you equip an optional towing hitch! However, the GLC can only tow up to 3,500 pounds. With a 7,700-pound maximum towing capacity, the GLE has a clear edge.

Interior Features & Cargo Space: GLC or GLE?

As we noted above, one of the biggest differences between the GLC and the GLE has to do with each model’s interior dimensions. Although both are designed to seat five as standard, only the larger GLE can accommodate the available third row. Here’s how their dimensions compare without options:
