Mercedes-Benz SUVs like the 2021 GLC and the 2021 GLE will add remarkable power and luxury to your everyday drives in Long Island, but which model is the perfect match for your lifestyle and budget? Below, Rallye Motors takes an in-depth look at technology features, dimensions, and more to help you compare the Mercedes-Benz GLC vs. GLE.

2021 GLC vs. GLE: Performance Specs

Both the GLC and GLE come equipped with a base 2.0L turbo inline-4 engine and 9-speed automatic transmission, but each offers a distinct driving experience. While some Plainview drivers will appreciate the GLE’s higher towing capacity, you may prefer greater fuel efficiency on your Syosset commutes with the GLC. Compare specs for the base GLC vs. GLE here:

  • 2.0L turbo inline-4 engine
  • 9-speed automatic transmission
  • 255 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque

2021 GLC vs. GLE: Cargo Space & Dimensions
