Safety

Both the Range Rover and AMG GLE 63 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. The AMG GLE 63’s child locks have to be individually engaged at each rear door with a manual switch. The driver can’t know the status of the locks without opening the doors and checking them.

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 63 doesn’t offer a cross-path warning system.

Both the Range Rover and the AMG GLE 63 have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front and rear seatbelt pretensioners, height adjustable front shoulder belts, four-wheel antilock brakes, all wheel drive, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, crash mitigating brakes, daytime running lights, rearview cameras, available blind spot warning systems, around view monitors and driver alert monitors.

The Range Rover P400e can drive on battery power alone for up to 31 miles. The AMG GLE 63 must run its internal combustion engine to move.

Regenerative brakes improve the Range Rover’s fuel efficiency by converting inertia back into energy instead of wasting it. The AMG GLE 63 doesn’t offer a regenerative braking system.

The Range Rover’s standard fuel tank has 2.7 gallons more fuel capacity than the AMG GLE 63’s standard fuel tank (27.3 vs. 24.6 gallons).

Transmission

An eight-speed automatic is standard on the Land Rover Range Rover, for better acceleration and lower engine speed on the highway. Only a seven-speed automatic is available for the AMG GLE 63.

Suspension and Handling

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the Range Rover’s wheelbase is .2 inches longer than on the AMG GLE 63 Coupe (115 inches vs. 114.8 inches). The Range Rover LWB’s wheelbase is 8 inches longer than on the AMG GLE 63 Coupe (122.8 feet vs. 114.8 inches).

The Range Rover’s front to rear weight distribution is more even (48.9% to 51.1%) than the AMG GLE 63’s (54.7% to 45.3%). This gives the Range Rover more stable handling and braking.

For greater off-road capability the Range Rover has a 2.5 inches greater minimum ground clearance than the AMG GLE 63 (11.6 vs. 9.1 inches), allowing the Range Rover to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged.

Chassis

The Land Rover Range Rover may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs up to about 250 pounds less than the Mercedes AMG GLE 63.

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 63 doesn’t offer active grille shutters.

Passenger Space

The Range Rover has .2 inches more front headroom, 2.2 inches more front legroom, 2.2 inches more front shoulder room, 1.6 inches more rear headroom, 1.8 inches more rear legroom and 1 inch more rear shoulder room than the AMG GLE 63 Coupe.

Flexibility is maximized at the game, campground or a drive-in theatre in the Range Rover SVAutobiography Long Wheelbase when its optional tailgating rear seats are deployed, allowing people to sit facing out of the tailgate. (Do not use while vehicle is in motion.) The AMG GLE 63 doesn’t offer tailgating seats.

Cargo Capacity

The Range Rover has a much larger cargo volume with its rear seat up than the AMG GLE 63 Coupe with its rear seat up (31.8 vs. 23 cubic feet). The Range Rover has a much larger cargo volume with its rear seat folded than the AMG GLE 63 Coupe with its rear seat folded (68.6 vs. 60.7 cubic feet).

The Range Rover SVAutobiography’s optional sliding cargo floor makes loading and unloading cargo easier and safer. The AMG GLE 63 doesn’t offer a sliding load floor.

Pressing a switch automatically lowers or raises the Range Rover’s rear seats, to make changing between cargo and passengers easier. The AMG GLE 63 doesn’t offer automatic folding seats.

The Range Rover’s rear cargo window opens separately from the rest of the tailgate door to allow quicker loading of small packages. The AMG GLE 63’s rear cargo window doesn’t open.

To make loading groceries and cargo easier when your hands are full, the Range Rover’s tailgate can be opened and closed just by waving your foot, leaving your hands completely free. The AMG GLE 63 doesn’t offer a hands-free gesture to open its liftgate, forcing you to put cargo down if your hands are full.

Towing

The Range Rover’s standard towing capacity is much higher than the AMG GLE 63’s (7716 vs. 7200 pounds).

Ergonomics

The Range Rover offers an optional heads-up display that projects speed and navigation instruction readouts in front of the driver’s line of sight, allowing drivers to view information without diverting their eyes from the road. The AMG GLE 63 doesn’t offer a heads-up display.

To improve rear visibility by keeping the rear window clear, the Range Rover has a standard rear wiper. The AMG GLE 63 Coupe doesn’t offer a rear wiper.

In poor weather, headlights can lose their effectiveness as grime builds up on their lenses. This can reduce visibility without the driver realizing. The Range Rover has standard headlight washers to keep headlight output high. The AMG GLE 63 doesn’t offer headlight washers.

The Range Rover Autobiography/SVAutobiography has standard front air conditioned seats and the Range Rover Autobiography LWB/SVAutobiography also has them in the rear. This keeps the passengers comfortable and takes the sting out of hot seats in summer. The AMG GLE 63 doesn’t offer air-conditioned seats in the rear.
