2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE SUV vs 2016 Range Rover Sport

The Mercedes-Benz GLE350 and Range Rover Sport are set to be two titans in the world of luxury SUVs for the 2016 sales year. Stacked with improvements, both vehicles are sure to draw plenty of praise from drivers. .

One of the most intriguing features of the 2016 GLE350 is its 7G Tronic 7-speed transmission. This unique 7-speed transmission offers some of the most precise shifting available right now, and even adapts its shifting patterns in order to accommodate the driver's tendencies. The 2016 Range Rover Sport's 8-speed automatic transmission is also impressive, but doesn't offer the same level of ingenuity and forward-thinking features as the 7G Tronic 7-speed.

In terms of active safety, the 2016 GLE350 offers several features not included with the 2016 Range Rover Sport. Some of these are Collision Prevention Assist Plus, Attention Assist, Night Security Illumination and Mercedes-Benz mbrace Many of the unique standard features on the 2016 Range Rover Sport are related to towing, such as Hill Descent Control, Emergency Brake Assist, Trailer Stability Control and Electrical towing preparation. For having an MSRP price significantly lower than that of the 2016 Range Rover Sport, the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE350 steals the show with standard features.
