Which Mercedes-Benz SUV models have the most to offer in 2021 and 2022? It all depends on what you’re looking for in your next new vehicle.

The Mercedes-Benz GLC and the Mercedes-Benz GLB have both earned a spot among the top Mercedes-Benz SUVs, and it’s not hard to see why. With the exception of the GLA, these two models are the most accessible SUVs in the lineup. Calculate your monthly payments to find out how much each model would cost!

The GLB offers better fuel economy, more standard cargo space, and a higher available seating capacity, but the GLC offers more standard power, faster acceleration, and a more compelling suite of engine upgrades. In accordance with its higher price, it also offers more standard features.

Maximum Towing Capacity

There’s a significant price jump between the GLC and the GLE, but it’s worth it to choose the larger model if you need third-row seating or you’d like to be able to tow a lot of heavy cargo.

The GLE offers more standard features than the GLC, but that’s not all. It also offers more rear legroom (40.9 inches vs. 37.3 inches) and more available cargo space (74.9 cubic feet vs. 56.5 cubic feet). All in all, this decision should be based entirely on your needs!

Since both the GLB and the GLE are offered with optional third-row seating, it makes sense to compare them head-to-head! Here, it’s easy to see that the GLE offers more standard power, more available power, and more cargo space. Aside from the GLS, the GLE is also the only tow-ready Mercedes-Benz SUV with a third row!

However, if you don’t need to tow heavy cargo and you don’t see yourself needing more than 300 hp, the GLB could still be a better choice.
