Mercedes-Benz GLC vs. GLE — Dimensions

The main difference Montgomery drivers will notice in GLC vs. GLE is the difference in size. The GLE is the larger Mercedes-Benz SUV. It has an exceptional amount of cargo space if you opt for the seating for five, but there’s enough space that you can add a third row of seats and increase it to seating for seven:

  • Passenger Capacity: 5
  • Front Headroom: 37.8 inches
  • Rear Headroom: 38.5 inches
  • Front Legroom: 40.8 inches
  • Rear Legroom: 37.3 inches
  • Maximum Cargo Capacity: 56.5 cubic feet

  • Maximum Cargo Capacity: Nearly 80 cubic feet

Mercedes-Benz GLC vs. GLE — Engines

One way GLC vs GLE doesn’t differ is in their engines. They have the same engine, but because of the difference in size the GLC gets better fuel mileage in Sharonville:

Both Offer

  • 2.0L turbo inline-4
  • 255-hp
  • 273 lb-ft of torque


  • GLC fuel economy: GLC has an EPA-estimated 22 mpg city/29 mpg highway
  • GLE fuel economy: GLE has an EPA-estimated 19 mpg city/26 mpg highway

Overall, the GLC is a better option for drivers who don’t require quite as much space, who aren’t towing as much, although the GLC still offers space and towing capacity that’s well above adequate.

Mercedes-Benz GLC vs. GLE — Towing

Engines also make a difference in the towing capacity of the GLE, which has a towing capacity over double that of the GLC:

  • GLC Towing: GLC can tow up to 3,500 pounds with the available trailer hitch.
  • GLE Towing: GLE can tow up to 7,700 pounds with the available trailer hitch.
