Mercedes SUVs Discover the Mercedes SUV range and compare new, used, and leasing deals
SUVs are the most in-demand type of car at the moment, and they have been for a while, while Mercedes is one of the most prominent car makers in the world, so it’s hardly surprising the company offers an enormous range of SUVs. Here, we’ll detail each and every one of them; so whether you’re in the market for a small GLA or a large, super-luxurious GLS, if you’re interested in Mercedes’ SUV range, you’ve come to the right place.

Mercedes SUV models: current range
With more than a dozen models on the market, including petrol, diesel, plug-in hybrid and pure electric offerings, few companies have the breadth of SUV offerings that Mercedes does.
Moving up through Mercedes’ electric ‘EQ’ range we find the EQB, an electric SUV with seven seats - a useful and rare feature in this part of the market. Spacious, comfortable and refined, the EQB can’t go quite as far as the EQA, with a range of up to 253 miles.
As you might have guessed by now, the EQC is another electric Mercedes SUV, and it’s the next step up from the EQA and EQB. That means a more luxurious interior, a more comfortable and refined driving experience, and a somewhat higher price, too.
Mercedes EQE SUV
The Mercedes EQE SUV (not to be confused with the EQE saloon) is a full-size premium electric SUV, with a range of up to 334 miles and a seriously sumptuous interior, complete with Mercedes’ vast ‘Hyperscreen’ infotainment system, which stretches across the width of the dashboard, on higher-end models.
The GLA is Mercedes’ smallest, most affordable SUV, priced from around £37,000, and competing with rivals like the Audi Q3 and BMW X1. The GLA has a fantastic infotainment screen and lovely cabin, and it prioritises comfort and refinement over fun handling, which many buyers will like.
The Mercedes GLB is the petrol and diesel (plus plug-in hybrid) equivalent to the EQB, so you get a seven-seat SUV in a cool, boxy silhouette, plus a refined and comfortable driving experience.
Mercedes AMG GLB
AMG is Mercedes’ in-house performance arm, so the AMG GLB is just as practical as the standard car, offering seating for seven, but under the bonnet is a potent 306hp 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine driving all four wheels, and propelling the car from 0-60mph in around five seconds.
The GLC is the next step up on Mercedes’ SUV ladder, bringing with it more space, more comfort, and requiring a little more money to get one on your driveway. A rival to the Audi Q5 and BMW X3, the GLC is a handsome thing, and the impressive plug-in hybrid options allow you to opt for petrol or diesel power (they’re badged GLC 300 e and GLC 300 de respectively) together with a battery range of up to 80 miles.
Mercedes GLC Coupe
Take one GLC, taper its roofline and bootlid profile and, hey presto, you’ve got the GLC Coupe. Offered with the same engine range as the standard GLC, the Coupe is little less practical in the rear seats where the roof eats into headroom, but the car’s sleek silhouette holds appeal nonetheless.
The GLE isn’t the largest SUV Mercedes offers, but as a rival to cars like the BMW X5 and Audi Q7 it’s classed as a full-size premium SUV. Its characteristics are largely comparable to the smaller GLC, so you get a plush, sumptuous interior, one of the more refined driving experiences going, and a roomy cabin with seating for seven, plus the option of petrol, diesel or plug-in power.
Mercedes GLE Coupe
As with the GLC Coupe, the GLE Coupe takes the standard SUV and smooths off the rear end for a low-slung look. The downside is you lose the third row of seats with the Coupe, but if you’re happy with that its sleek styling holds appeal. The only other thing worth highlighting is that the GLE Coupe isn’t available with the entry-level engines the standard GLE can be had with, so starts at around £93,000, roughly £15,000 more than where the non-Coupe GLE begins.
Mercedes AMG GLE 53
If you’re after a GLE but want a little more excitement, the AMG GLE 53 version could be just the ticket thanks to its 3.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine, plus an electric motor to help acceleration. The result is a 0-62mph time of just five seconds, although be prepared to pop into petrol stations relatively regularly, as 27mpg is the official economy figure.
Mercedes AMG GLE 63 S
If the GLE 53 isn’t thrilling enough for you and you can dig deep enough, the £144,000 AMG GLE 63 S goes about as quickly as you’d like a 2.4-tonne SUV. An official economy figure of 22mpg is probably best not thought about too much, and do note that while the GLE 53 can be had with seven seats, the 63 S is a five-seater only.
Sitting at the top of Mercedes’ SUV size-wise is the big GLS. With spacious seating for seven, a vast boot and more leather and wood than you can shake a suede stick at, the GLS recently received a subtle update, bringing tweaked styling inside and out. Four engines - two petrol and two diesel - are available. There’s even a performance-oriented AMG version, should you be more keen on speed than fuel economy.
The G-Class is unlike any other Mercedes SUV; in fact, it’s unlike most SUVs on the road, being a properly competent off-roader, and a car that evolved from a military vehicle. It’s a properly luxurious car inside, and the G63 high-performance AMG version is hilariously loud and quick.
