2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE Class Preview

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class sets a high bar for technology.
The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class looks back to the future. For the first time in 15 years, Mercedes’ mid-size crossover SUV has seating for up to seven passengers—and it can drive itself in certain traffic situations.

The 2020 GLE debuts Mercedes’ new traffic-assistance system that recognizes traffic jams and can keep the vehicle in its lane and away from other cars with limited driver intervention at lower speeds. This evolution of adaptive cruise control with stop and go uses myriad sensors and cameras to watch other vehicles, even when they’re being unpredictable.

The GLE can come to a complete stop for up to a minute before restarting itself to keep up with the flow of traffic. A full suite of active safety tech such as automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, active lane control, and blind-spot monitors are also included on every 2020 GLE.

When it goes on sale in the spring of 2019, the 2020 Mercedes GLE will be available in two flavors: GLE350, with a 2.0-liter turbo-4 rated at 255 horsepower, and GLE450 with a turbocharged inline-6 paired to a 48-volt mild-hybrid system good for 362 horsepower.

A new all-wheel-drive system that can transfer up to 100 percent power to one axle will be optional on the GLE350 and standard on the GLE450. A 9-speed automatic puts power to either the rear or all four wheels.

The GLE450 uses the 48-volt mild-hybrid system that Mercedes debuted in its 2019 CLS, but with an additional twist beyond its 21-horsepower electric boost for high-speed passing. In the GLE, the system also powers a hydropneumatic suspension that reads the road ahead can adjust each corner of the vehicle proactively. Mercedes says that the hydropneumatic suspension can “rock” the vehicle to extract it from deep sand.

GLE350s come standard with a coil-sprung suspension and an air suspension is on the options list.

Both versions of the GLE share a clean, elegant look with a wide grille flanked by standard LED headlights up front. From the side, the crossover SUV’s C-pillar is raked, a throwback to the 1998 ML320 that vaulted Mercedes into the luxury off-roader market. Unpainted fender flares integrated into the GLE’s fenders are also something of a heritage item; the original ML offered unpainted flares as a popular option. The GLE will ride on 19-inch wheels as standard, with 21-inchers as an optional extra.

Inside, the new GLE couldn’t be more different than its predecessors, however. Two 12.3-inch displays under a single pane of glass sit in front of the driver and above the center stack. The screen behind the steering wheel serves as a digital instrument cluster, while the other is a touchscreen for infotainment. Mercedes’ latest MBUX infotainment software makes its mainstream debut in the GLE-Class. It’s already offered in the brand’s Sprinter vans and G-Class off-roader. A hand-gesture control system will be on the options list.

The 2019 Benz GLE hits the market in early 2019 first as the GLE350 and GLE450 with the automaker’s 4Matic all-wheel drive. The rear-wheel-drive GLE350 will follow in the summer of 2019.

Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) Review

A mid-range phone with triple rear cameras is a rare thing, especially at under £300 but the Galaxy A7 isn't an instant winner. Find out why in our full review.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018)? The Galaxy A7 is a decent choice for a mid-range phone if you're looking to spend less than £300. Highlights include an excellent screen, nice design and cameras you'd wouldn't expect to find.

Huawei Mate 20 X Review

The Huawei Mate 20 X is an obscenely large smartphone but it has many of the features of the Mate 20 Pro for less. Here’s our full review of the huge premium slab
Should I Buy The Huawei Mate 20 X?
With a bigger screen, bigger battery and smaller notch than the Mate 20 Pro, the Huawei Mate 20 X also has the same camera set up and adds a headphone jack. If you want the most screen possible, it might be for you. 
You lose the curved display, wireless charging, full water resistance and secure Face ID but for many that won’t matter if a huge display, outstanding camera and great performance are top of your list. If you want a normal size phone, get the Mate 20 Pro.

Samsung Galaxy S9 vs Samsung Galaxy S10e

Samsung's Galaxy S range has been updated and here we compare the S10e - the new 'lite' model - to last years' Galaxy S9 to help you decide which phone is best for you.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy S10e Or Samsung Galaxy S9?
The S10e could be the sleeper hit of this year. It doesn’t have the embedded fingerprint sensor of the S10 and S10 Plus or their triple cameras, but it comes with the same processors, new screen design, ultra-wide camera, and all in a compact and comfortable format with a smaller price-tag.
That being said, the S9 is still an excellent device, and its new, lower price makes it a definite bargain.
