Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 than in the Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe is much slimmer than the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot.
