When you take a look at the 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLB vs. GLE, you will likely have some questions about the two models. Prior to diving into our GLB vs. GLE comparison, we cover some of the basics below:



  • The Mercedes-Benz GLE has a higher starting price and that’s a result of more standard features than the GLB. It also comes with a stronger base engine.
  • The Mercedes-Benz GLE has more trim levels and engine options available for Providence drivers than the GLB.
  • The compact GLB and the midsize GLE each come equipped with a five passenger seating capacity, but both offer an optional third row.
  • Compared to the GLB, the GLE offers more cargo space and more second-row legroom.

The 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLB is a compact and accessible SUV for small families and even solo drivers or couples, and the optional third row will definitely appeal to many Providence-area families. On the other hand, if you are interested in more power, more features, and more generous dimensions, the GLE is a very compelling alternative.

GLB vs. GLE: Pricing & Trim Levels

Race-ready performance from the Mercedes-Benz AMG® GLB can be purchased for less than the base cost of the Mercedes-Benz GLE. While we agree, that’s certainly a tempting prospect, it’s not necessarily the best option for everyone. Check out a few of your options:

Mercedes-Benz GLB Pricing

  • 2022 GLB 250 SUV – $38,600 MSRP*
  • 2022 GLB 250 4MATIC®® SUV – $40,600 MSRP*

Our Cranston and East Greenwich customers may find investing in the GLE to be a very smart decision. It comes with a standard touchscreen display that’s larger than any touchscreen available in the GLB. The upper-level trims, of the GLE, offer many features that aren’t available in the GLB.

GLB vs. GLE: Engine Options & Performance

  • 2.0L inline-4 turbo – 221 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque
  • AMG®-enhanced 2.0L inline-4 turbo – 302 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque

The Mercedes-Benz GLE, in comparison, has five different powertrain configurations available:

  • 2.0L inline-4 turbo – 255 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque
  • 3.0L inline-6 turbo with mild hybrid drive – 362 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque
