Performance and MPG

An important distinction between the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE and the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC is their introductory powertrains. If you want more oomph behind the wheel, the Mercedes-Benz GLE SUV has a 3.5L V6 engine paired with a seven-speed automatic transmission that generates 302 hp and returns an EPA-estimated 23 mpg highway. Meanwhile, if you want a greater focus on fuel economy and a traditional engine, the Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV achieves 28 mpg highway and puts out 241 hp with its 2.0L inline-four engine mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission. Despite the difference in engine size, both models produce 273 lb-ft of torque.


One major difference between the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE and the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC is size. The Mercedes-Benz GLE promises 38.2 cubic feet for cargo when all seats are occupied, and 80.3 cubic feet when you fold the second row flat. The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC, on the other hand, has a small stature, and therefore boasts 19.4 cubic feet as the standard for storage and a maximum of 56.5 cubic feet. So if you prefer having more flexibility in terms of space, the Mercedes-Benz GLE just might be for you, while the smaller Mercedes-Benz GLC may prove more nimble on the road and still provide plenty of room.
