Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 than in the Land Rover Discovery, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Land Rover Discovery.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Land Rover Discovery as you will with the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Land Rover Discovery will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Land Rover Discovery is much higher than that for the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450.

Dimensions
Since the Land Rover Discovery is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Land Rover Discovery takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450.

Handling
The Land Rover Discovery has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
With the Land Rover Discovery, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450. The Land Rover Discovery has a little less horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450.

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the Land Rover Discovery doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Land Rover Discovery and the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450.

Warranty
The Land Rover Discovery comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450.
