Comparison Review

Comfort
The GMC Yukon offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350, with comparable head- and legroom. The GMC Yukon will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350.

Convenience
