2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE vs. 2020 Acura MDX

Promising no less than cutting-edge technology, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE balances performance with all its other great features. It has an opulent and spacious cabin too, plus it has upgraded its already reliable infotainment system.

The 2020 Acura MDX, on the other hand, does not carry major changes. Nonetheless, it is still praised for its composed handling even on tough roads. This car seats up to seven people in its cabin.

Design & Style

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE is a four-door luxury midsize SUV that can accommodate up to five people comfortably in its lavishly designed cabin. There is an option to expand the ride so that there is a third row to seat two more passengers. What makes it even more worthy of its top position is the fact that even with the addition of an extra row, the ride is comfortable all throughout. The luxurious interior boasts of a solid hardware, embodied in no less than excellent craftsmanship.

The 2020 Acura MDX, on the other hand, can seat up to six people. The driver also gets comfort from its 12-way power-adjustable front seats. The back seat has lesser legroom, thus making taller passengers no choice but fit themselves within that small area.

Technology & Safety

The GLE, like the GLC, is equipped with the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) infotainment system. This one has a 12.3-inch touch screen that guarantees sleek and responsive functions. It has voice controls, and gesture controls which can be used with a simple wave of a hand. Standard safety features for this ride include a rearview camera, active brake assist blind spot monitoring, active brake assist, and driver attention monitoring. It also has a standard active parking assist which has parking sensors used to automatically steer the SUV when moving through parallel parking spaces.

The 2020 Acura MDX, meanwhile, is fitted with an eight-inch upper screen as well as a 7-inch lower touch screen to support its infotainment setup. Standard features include support for both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. It has six USB ports, Bluetooth® interface, an eight-speaker stereo, and Siri Eyes Free. Automatic high beams, rearview camera, lane departure warning, and the AcuraWatch suite featuring adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, and lane keep assist, are among its standard driver aids.


The GLE has a base trim that is turbocharged by a four-cylinder engine to generate up to 255 horsepower. It has a six-cylinder engine variation that can reach up to 362 horsepower. The twin-turbo V8, on the other hand, packs up to 483 horsepower. There is a 3.5-liter, V6 engine under the hood of the 2020 Acura MDX which only yields up to 290 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

Beaming with pride for perfecting a luxury midsize SUV, Mercedes-Benz knows that the GLE has a potential to dominate the hearts of car buyers all around the world. It is attractive, with all the best technologies you can ever rely on.
