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.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review: Hands-on

We had time with Oppo’s new RX17 Pro. It may be blue and purple but how different is it to the similar OnePlus 6T and is it worth your time?
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
Oppo has made a solid mid-range phone in the RX17 Pro. Build quality is premium, fast charging is industry-best fast and the display is of high quality.But the price is high at 599€ considering the OnePlus 6T with a better processor starts at £499/€529. And while functioning as it’s supposed to, ColorOS is still unrefined for the western market with far too many changes to Android to recommend over competitors.

LG G5 Review In-Depth

Can LG take on the Galaxy S7 with a metal design, dual-cameras and an accessory slot? Here's our first LG G5 review, focusing on LG G5 design and build, LG G5 specs, LG G5 cameras and LG G5 software and apps.
Alongside the Galaxy S7, the LG G5 is one of the biggest phones (not literally) to launch in 2016 – and we're not just talking in the Android world. It's one of the heavyweights and LG will be looking to set the market alight with the G5's alternative and innovative modular design.

Apple iPhone XR Review

If you aren't sure you are ready to leave the Home button behind and embrace Face ID, think again. We'll tell you why the iPhone XR is worth the sacrifice - especially because it's just as good (if not better than) the iPhone XS. Find out more in out full review.
Should I Buy The Apple iPhone XR?
The iPhone XR brings Face ID to the masses. We’re sure people will continue to rebel against the lack of Home button, but eventually we expect them to come round and embrace the larger screen, Portrait mode (front and back), animoji and memoji.We have no doubt that this will be a popular iPhone and it deserves to be. The only question is why would anyone buy an iPhone XS when the iPhone XR is just as powerful and has a bigger screen.

BlackBerry KEYone Review

BlackBerry soliders on with a curious Android device that gets nearly everything right. It’s not for everyone though, in fact, it’s not really for anyone. But if you want a physical keyboard you will absolutely love it.
Should I Buy The BlackBerry KEYone?
But then, the KEYone is the best BlackBerry phone for years. It has (finally) successfully melded classic BlackBerry design with the necessary mix of Android and nostalgia. Importantly, the latter is only faint this time – this is a device for 2017, not 2007.If you love your iPhone or Samsung, you’ll hate the KEYone and won’t even consider buying it. But if you’ve made it to the end of this review, chances are you’re weighing up a buy. If you think you’ll love the BlackBerry KEYone, then I’m pretty certain you won’t be disappointed. You’re part of a minority, but finally BlackBerry has a phone for you that doesn’t force you to compromise.

Google Pixel Review
