Edmunds Editor-in-Chief Alistair Weaver takes a close look at the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE at the Paris auto show. Though the outside of the GLE looks very typically Mercedes, things get more interesting inside, with an elegant ambiance and the MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) infotainment system, which replaces the COMAND system. Watch to find out more about the GLE.

Q: What kind of engine and transmission does the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE have?
A: Under the hood, the GLE gets two new engines, both paired to the same nine-speed automatic transmission. For the base GLE 350 and GLE 350 4Matic (all-wheel-drive) models, there's a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that puts out 255 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. The GLE 450 4Matic steps up to a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six (362 hp, 369 lb-ft) that's paired with a 48-volt mild hybrid system called EQ Boost. This system can augment the output by up to 21 additional horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque.

Q: How many rows does the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE have?
A: Previously the GLE had only two rows, but there's an optional third row on the 2020 GLE, made possible by a wheelbase that's grown by 3.1 inches. The bigger dimensions overall, including a 5-inch-plus bump in the GLE's length, mean passengers will enjoy more space all around in either the two-row or the three-row configuration.
