Mercedes-Benz of Burlington is home to an impressive selection of new Mercedes-Benz cars like the Mercedes-Benz GLE. If you’re not familiar with this midsize luxury SUV, come see it in person at our Burlington, MA, Mercedes-Benz dealership. We’ll be happy to detail how it stands out in its class against competitors such as the Audi Q7.

Performance

The Mercedes-Benz GLE is available in three trim levels, each of which has its own engine assignment. The base trim comes with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that is capable of producing 255 horsepower and 273 lb.-ft. of torque. The Audi Q7 entry-level engine falls a bit behind and produces only 248 horsepower and 273 lb.-ft. of torque. The most powerful engine in the upper Audio Q7 Prestige trim is a 3.0-liter V6 that earns 329 horsepower and 325 lb.-ft. of torque. This engine also lags behind the most powerful counterpart in the Mercedes-Benz GLE, which earns 362 horsepower and 369 lb.-ft. of torque. This engine is also unique in that it comes with a 48-volt EQ Boost electrical system for an additional 21 horsepower when you need it.

Technology

The Mercedes-Benz GLE is rich with tech amenities. The 12.3-inch touchscreen accompanies standard Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™, Bluetooth®, and a navigation system. While the Audi Q7 mirrors many of these features, the Mercedes-Benz GLE offers just a bit more. You’ll get five USB ports instead of just two in the Audi Q7, and the standard 7-inch touchscreen on the Audi SUV is significantly smaller. The Mercedes-Benz GLE can also be enhanced with the MBUX Technology package, which adds on augmented reality driving instructions and a large 12.3-inch driver information display.

Safety

You have access to numerous standard safety features in the Mercedes-Benz GLE, which is now available at our Mercedes-Benz dealership near Woburn. You’ll have an emergency telematics system, blind-spot monitor, passenger-exit alert system, and drowsy driver warning system. The Audi Q7 comes with some of the same driver aids as the Mercedes-Benz GLE, but lacks several features including blind-spot monitoring and rear-cross traffic alert.
