One thing’s for sure – Champaign drivers love their Mercedes-Benz SUVs. We can’t blame them! If you’re thinking about joining the fun and getting one of these stylish SUVs for yourself, you may be wondering which Mercedes-Benz model to choose. You can see all the SUV models Mercedes has to offer at Sullivan•Parkhill Automotive Inc. But in the meantime, we’ve put together a side-by-side comparison of two models, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC vs. GLE, so that you can make an informed choice. Both are excellent choices. So it basically boils down to whether you think the extra luxury features, passenger space, and cargo space is worth the extra cost to you.

Mercedes-Benz GLC vs GLE – Price

The more budget-conscious can save a little over $11,000 by opting for the GLC, depending on which optional features you choose for this Mercedes-Benz SUV. The base model for the GLC has an MSRP of $42,500, whereas the GLE comes in at $54,250. The difference is a little less pronounced with the most premium trims of these models. The AMG GLC 63 (popular among Mattoon drivers) has an MSRP of $73,750 compared to $77,600 for the GLE 580 4Matic.

Mercedes-Benz GLC vs GLE – Room and Space

The GLC has room for five passengers, while the GLE can fit seven with its optional 3rd row seating. The slightly larger GLE comes out ahead when it comes to cargo space, as well, providing 33.3-74.9 cu ft of cargo space, compared to 19.4-56.5 cu ft in the GLC. So if roominess is what you want out of your Mercedes-Benz SUV, then the GLE may be the choice for you.

Mercedes-Benz GLC vs GLE – Luxury Features

If there’s one thing that most people associate with Mercedes-Benz SUVs, it’s luxury. The GLC and GLE have almost the same set of standard luxury features, like heated front seats and remote start via the Mercedes me Mobile App. But the GLE has a larger set of optional luxury features, including the multicontour front seats with massage feature, the panorama roof, heated and cooled front cupholders, the heated steering wheel, soft-close doors, and more.
