2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE vs. 2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport

Among hybrid SUVs, not too many vehicles can match the level of prominence of the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE. It has successfully proven that there is no need to compromise anything when it comes to providing luxury, advanced technology, and noteworthy road performance. It is among the top-rated luxury SUVs because it always delivers what the consumers expects, and from a luxury-buyer’s perspective, there is plenty of expectations involved in this segment.

As one of the brand’s well-loved models, the 2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport is hoping to maintain its popularity by having a thorough update for this model year. There are a lot of changes that it can pass as a full redesign.

Design & Style

It is a fact that the GLC is a two-box crossover that is able to balance both sophistication and a rugged profile. The aerodynamic details gave it more room to accommodate more functions. The iconic star badge complements the broad shoulders. What makes it stunning is that the design cues are cohesive inside and out. The gorgeous exterior is an obvious cue of an attractive and opulent cabin.

The Discovery Sport may be handsome with its new LED lights, badges, and fascia but it is forgettable. You can even mistake it for the Range Rover and the Discovery models. It lacks a lot of character to make a nice and memorable impression.

Technology & Safety

The new MBUX infotainment system on the GLE sets the standards for in-car technology. It is intuitive and robust. The surround-sound audio system never disappoints. It also has an Interior Assistant that can respond with both speech and gestures. It is fitted with advanced technology that can spot traffic jam so it can slow down gracefully and avoid unnecessary collisions.

The Discovery Sport has standard infotainment features that look lacking when compared against the GLE. Most of the advanced features and active driver aids will quickly make the price tag climb up.


The turbocharged 255 hp engine on the GLE provides a sufficient thrust for a strong and consistent acceleration. The steering effort is precise and the GLE stays flat and stable even through corners. It is a highly-capable vehicle that inspires confidence.

The base engine of the Discovery Sport is a turbocharged 2.0-liter, four-cylinder that is good enough for up to 246 hp. The transmission is usually smooth but it gets confused when pushed harder.

The Bottom Line

The potent powertrain on the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE makes it even better that it already is just by mere looking at its stunning profile. The 2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport looks very shabby compared to the GLE’s confident and stylish exterior. The Discovery Sport also failed to make a good impression with its very basic-looking infotainment features.
