Auto123 reviews the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLE 350.
It was known as the ML. And you may remember that under that name, it made a big impression when it hit the market in 1997 as Mercedes-Benz's first mass-market SUV (not counting the stand-apart G Class, of course).
Perhaps because it was such a pioneer, it was a success from the start. However, the ML also left its mark for another reason: its poor build quality and reliability. Mercedes-Benz, however, ignored the criticism and stuck with its offspring. Since the, the generations that have succeeded one another have seen the model grow in quality and stature.
During its previous redesign, introduced for 2012, the ML entered the big leagues. In 2015, it adopted the new nomenclature still in effect at Mercedes-Benz and became the GLE. Last year, it was redesigned to start the decade in style.
