2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE SUV vs Coupe 

While both models feature the same name, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE SUV and Coupe have more than their fair share of differences. Whether you’re looking for everyday utility or a powerful and thrilling drive, there’s a GLE model that suits you here at Loeber Motors. 

Starting with the styling of the two 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE models, the differences are obvious even at a glance. While the SUV features a – you guessed it – standard SUV design, the Coupe design takes on a crossover appearance that is more compact. Drivers looking for more space for passengers will likely turn towards the higher ceilings of the GLE SUV rather than the angled rear of the GLE Coupe.  

Though its name might make you think “two-door”, the GLE Coupe actually features a four-door design that offers easy access to its second-row seating. Whether you’re looking for a vehicle for everyday commutes or a ride for your small family, you can’t go wrong with either of these impressive models.
