Safety & Technology - 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLE dealer
When it comes to safety, the Range Rover Sport has a few more standard features than the GLE. For instance, it has auto-leveling headlamps and a blind spot monitor as standard. These are optional on the GLE, but the GLE offers some features that the Range Rover Sport does not offer at all. For instance, you have the option of a lane departure warning, land-keeping assist, and cross traffic alert on the GLE. The Range Rover Sport does not even offer them.
We think the GLE offers a little more when it comes to comfort and amenities in a luxury-class vehicle, but the best way to decide for yourself is to stop by Mercedes-Benz at Long of Chattanooga for a test drive.*Article for general informational purposes, for complete details please contact the dealership.
