2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE vs 2021 Genesis GV80

Serving Milwaukee, WI

The Genesis GV80 is an all-new model for 2021, and its sharp styling is turning heads. As a midsize luxury crossover SUV, it competes directly with the Mercedes-Benz GLE. The GLE has a decades-long history of impressing drivers in Milwaukee and beyond. Are you trying to decide which of these exciting possibilities is a better option for you?


A review of the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE to the 2021 Genesis GV80 begins on the exterior. The GLE’s style is the perfect blend of masterful sophistication and strong athleticism. Across the exterior, you will find flowing lines and desired features. These include running boards, heated side mirrors with integrated turning signals, dual exhaust tips embedded in the rear skid plate, a hands-free liftgate, and more. The Genesis GV80’s exterior also shows off long lines, and these side lines roll over the front fenders. The diamond-style mesh on the grille draws attention to its large size. The LED headlights are comprised of separated rectangles of lights.


The spacious interior of the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE is dressed up by ribbon-style accent lighting, wood and metal trim, and a two-tone color scheme for the leather seats. Uniquely, the center console has a distinctive personality with triangular hand grips on both sides. Some of the GLE’s features include a heated steering wheel with mounted functions, smart device integration, a navigation system, voice recognition, an interior assistant, the MBUX system, and more. In the GV80 from Genesis, you will find quilted stitching on the leather seats, a hidden area underneath the center console, a sound system, a rotary knob for the gear selector, a push-button starter, and other gear.


The GLE and the GV80 are both offered with your choice of powertrains across multiple trims. The base engine for the GLE is a 255-horsepower, 2.0-liter turbo engine. The top-of-the-line GLE engine is a 483-horsepower, V8, bi-turbo 4.0-liter engine. The GV80 is offered with your choice of a 2.5-liter turbo or a 3.5-liter twin-turbo engine.
