I am planning to buy a Range Rover Sport SE 3.0 diesel or a Mercedes- Benz GLE 400d. I want to know what their pros and cons are, and which one is better in terms of performance, driving, comfort, service and resale value.
The Range Rover Sport diesel is the more desirable of the two. It is bigger, has a good balance between ride and handling and is much better off-road. The interiors too are quite classy and rich. The GLE 400d has the nicer engine and is smoother and stronger than the Range Rover’s diesel. Also, the GLE is easier to get in and out of and is not as high as the Range Rover. In the end, it’s a question of head versus heart. The GLE is a better investment as Mercs have better resale and a better sales and service network, too, but the Range Rover with its fabulous road presence is the one that appeals to the heart.
