2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE vs. 2019 Porsche Macan

It can be challenging to top the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE in the luxury SUV segment. The latest model has been fully redesigned and it is undoubtedly better, more refined, and stronger than its predecessor. Other cars in its class pale in comparison to the previous model years. It is expected that the 2020 version remains formidable and still difficult to beat.

Porsche is not the best when it comes to luxury crossovers. The 2019 Porsche Macan is its most agile entry to this segment and it is a great choice. It comes with a lot of optional goodies and the Turbo trim is one of the quickest on its class.

Design & Style

The rugged appeal of the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE is balanced by the sophisticated design elements. The massive three-point star badge looks fascinating as it is dominant on the sinuous rille. The obvious display of luxury does not stop on its exterior. The buyer gets to decide the level of sophistication with the choice of trim surfaces. The cabin may be swathed with any of the three finishes: glossy, matte, or aluminum.

Describing the Macan is simple. It is a scaled-down Cayenne but in a sportier package. The rear has some characteristics that differentiate it from the Cayenne. The Porsche lettering flows into the taillights and it has the 3D LED strip to highlight the brand’s signature style. The Macan also have unique lower side blades that can be in black, silver, or the same with the body color.

Technology & Safety

The MBUX make for an innovative infotainment system on the GLE. It is a functional system that is well-applauded for its simple yet groundbreaking features.

The Macan also received an upgraded infotainment system for this model year. Apple CarPlay is surprisingly not offered as a standard tech for the current model.


The GLE has a 255 hp engine that delivers 273 lb-ft of torque. It is more than adequate for daily driving. What is nice about the GLE is that it has off-roading capabilities thanks to its traction control system. This is a handy feature if you are fond of taking the GLE to the beach.

The base model of the Macan can give up to 248 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. The steering response is better than most of its rivals. It is also reliable at providing highway stabilization.

The Bottom Line

The 2019 Porsche Macan is a car worthy of appreciation for its road performance.  Other than its powerful engine, everything else is basic and does not measure up to luxury standards. The Macan look ancient against the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE mainly because of the innovative upgrades that Porsche failed to have.
