The Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 Outclasses it Fiercest Competitors

The Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 versus the Acura MDX

One of the best ways to show the superiority of a vehicle is to put it up against its closest competition. The Acura MDX is one such competitor, and while it is capable in its own right, the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 proves it is the superior midsize luxury midsize SUV in a variety of ways.


Under the hood, the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 comes standard with a 2.0-liter turbo-four engine that gets a performance output of 255 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. What's impressive about the GLE 350's performance output is that it surpasses the Acura MDX's torque rating, despite the fact that the MDX comes with a V6.

In addition, the GLE-Class SUV has a series of engine upgrade options as you move up trim levels. In contrast, the MDX gives buyers and lessees zero options, even with its available performance-focused A-Spec package.


Technology is a major point of emphasis on the design of the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 as buyers and lessees get many state-of-the-art features that Acura MDX drivers either have to pay extra for or don't exist at all. For starters, the touchscreen size falls heavily in favor of the GLE 350 as it measures 12.3 inches and aligns perfectly with the 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster up top. Meanwhile, while offering a similar dual-screen setup, the Acura MDX clocks in with smaller eight and seven-inch screens.

Other features that come standard in the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 that aren't in the base MDX model include:

  • Navigation
  • HD Radio
  • Satellite radio
  • Wireless device charging


For all the ways that a luxury SUV should pamper you, it's just as important for it to protect you with the latest advances in safety technology. The new Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 does just that while managing to include features that Acura MDX buyers and lessees have to pay extra for.

The standard suite of safety features on the GLE 350 include:

  • A high-resolution rearview camera
  • Automatic emergency braking
  • Blind spot monitoring
  • Driver drowsiness monitoring
  • Forward collision warning
  • Front and rear parking sensors
  • Hands-free park assist
  • Pedestrian detection

Of these features, Acura MDX buyers and lessees miss out on blind-spot monitoring, the driver drowsiness monitor, the parking sensors, the park assist technology, and the pedestrian detection.

Simply put, the overall package of the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 bests that of the Acura MDX. Not only is it incredibly satisfying to handle, it pampers you in high-end technology and gives you a second set of eyes with its advanced safety technology.
