Safety

Both the Range Rover and AMG GLE 43 Coupe have child safety locks to prevent children from opening the rear doors. The Range Rover has power child safety locks, allowing the driver to activate and deactivate them from the driver's seat and to know when they're engaged.

To help make backing safer, the Range Rover’s optional cross-path warning system uses wide-angle radar in the rear bumper to alert the driver to vehicles approaching from the side, helping the driver avoid collisions. The AMG GLE 43 Coupe doesn’t offer a cross-path warning system.

Chassis

The front grille of the Range Rover Diesel uses electronically controlled shutters to close off airflow and reduce drag when less engine cooling is needed. This helps improve highway fuel economy. The AMG GLE 43 Coupe doesn’t offer active grille shutters.

Cargo Capacity

The Range Rover has a much larger cargo area with its rear seat up than the AMG GLE 43 Coupe with its rear seat up (24.5 vs. 23 cubic feet). The Range Rover has a much larger cargo area with its rear seat folded than the AMG GLE 43 Coupe with its rear seat folded (62.6 vs. 60.7 cubic feet).

To improve rear visibility by keeping the rear window clear, the Range Rover has a standard rear wiper. The AMG GLE 43 Coupe doesn’t offer a rear wiper.

The Range Rover HSE/Supercharged/Autobiography has standard front air conditioned seats and offers them optionally in the rear. This keeps the passengers comfortable and takes the sting out of hot seats in Summer. The AMG GLE 43 Coupe doesn’t offer air-conditioned seats in the rear.
