2021 Mercedes-Benz GLE vs 2021 Genesis GV80

Serving McKinney, TX

Luxury and performance strike perfect harmony in the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLE. With more than two decades of proven history, the GLE is a midsize luxury crossover SUV that McKinney-area drivers can buy with confidence. The Genesis GV80 was introduced in the midsize luxury crossover class this year. This all-new model may divide your interest and can seemingly make your SUV selection more challenging. How closely do these leading luxury models compare in critical areas?


The GLE from Mercedes-Benz has a fresh look that results from a recent facelift, and it is striking from front to rear. A pair of gorgeous creases angle confidently down the grille to a rounded nose. The single-bar grille has a stardust background, and the beautiful headlights are highlighted with two angled LED bars. The sides are perfectly sculpted and show off definition over the wheels. Running boards and raised roof rails complete the look. The 2021 Genesis GV80, on the other hand, has horizontal bars that run through the headlights, taillights, and side accents. These bars and the large, pentagon-shaped grille define the GV80’s look.


The beauty of the GLE’s style carries on inside its cabin. The three-row interior is accented by premium leather and wood material and a 64-color ambient light system. The innovative center console holds the touch control pad, and the push-button gear selectors and angled hand grips outline this console on both sides. The extensive MBUX system’s screen is flawlessly connected to the instrumentation panel’s screen for a high-tech look. The 2021 Genesis GV80’s interior integrates the linear theme that is found across its exterior. The console and infotainment system’s screen are extra-wide, and they are bisected by a horizontal accent piece that runs across the dashboard.


Both of these luxury crossovers have a turbo I-4, 2.0-liter gas engine as standard equipment. The 2021 Genesis GV80 is also available with a 375-horsepower, V6 twin-turbo engine. The GLE has three other engines at the base level and additional options in the AMG® line. The most powerful engine at the GLE’s base level is a 4.0-liter V8 bi-turbo that generates 483 horsepower.
