Very classy and spacious vehicle. It’s what one would expect from Mercedes-Benz. First time owning the brand, and I’m very happy with the GLE 350. A very spacious vehicle with nice luxury features and a smooth ride.

Most reliable suv I ever owned

It is stylish, fun to drive and has the power needed to go! I am enjoying the drive tremendously. It has certainly given the feel of safety on the road I needed.

When I first test drove this car I had already driven everything else in the marketplace..... this is the best vehicle in its class and there is no greater value out there.... I’m looking forward to getting the larger model 450 class....
