On the EPA test cycle the Range Rover Td6 gets better fuel mileage than the GLE 450 (22 city/28 hwy vs. 19 city/24 hwy).

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

Regardless of its engine, regenerative brakes improve the Range Rover’s fuel efficiency by converting inertia back into energy instead of wasting it. Mercedes only offers a regenerative brake system on the GLE 450.

The Range Rover’s standard fuel tank has 5.1 gallons more fuel capacity than the GLE (27.6 vs. 22.5 gallons).

For better stopping power the Range Rover’s front brake rotors are larger than those on the GLE:

Rear Rotors

The Range Rover’s standard front and rear disc brakes are vented to help dissipate heat for shorter stops with less fading. The rear discs standard on the GLE 350 are solid, not vented.

The Range Rover’s optional tires provide better handling because they have a lower 40 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the GLE’s optional 45 series front tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Range Rover offers optional 22-inch wheels. The GLE’s largest wheels are only 21-inches.

The Range Rover V8 has active sway bars, which help keep it flat and controlled during cornering, but disconnect at lower speeds to smooth the ride and offer greater off-road suspension articulation. This helps keep the tires glued to the road on-road and off. The GLE doesn’t offer an active sway bar system.

The front and rear suspension of the Range Rover uses air springs for a smoother, controlled ride than the GLE, which uses coil springs. Air springs maintain proper ride height and ride more smoothly.

The Range Rover’s front to rear weight distribution is more even (48.9% to 51.1%) than the GLE’s (53.5% to 46.5%). This gives the Range Rover more stable handling and braking.

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 GLE doesn’t offer active grille shutters.

As tested by Car and Driver while cruising at 70 MPH, the interior of the Range Rover SVAutobiography is quieter than the GLE 450 (62 vs. 63 dB).

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 GLE doesn’t offer tailgating seats.
