2022 Porsche Taycan vs. 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLE Class

The 2022 Porsche Taycan and the 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLE Class are two of the most anticipated cars of the decade. The two are competitors in their respective segments, but which car will you want to buy based on its performance, tech, design and other factors? We’ve compared these two vehicles so you can make an informed decision!

Design & Style

  • Exterior Design

The first thing you’ll notice about the Taycan is its unique exterior design. It has some of the most attractive features in its class and a powerful look that makes it stand out from the crowd. Its LED headlights, large air intakes and carbon fiber front splitter give it an aggressive look that many people love, but not everyone can pull off.

The Mercedes-Benz GLE Class looks more like a crossover than a sedan with its tall roofline, rugged-looking wheels and sloping cargo area. Its sleek design doesn’t make it as sporty as other cars in this class like the Alfa Romeo Stelvio or BMW X5, but if you’re looking for something with an upscale vibe then this might be your pick.

  • Interior Design

While both the GLE and Taycan offer excellent interior space, it’s worth noting that the Porsche has a leg up in terms of design. It features more headroom, shoulder room and legroom than its German rival. However, both cars have ample cargo space when you fold down their respective rear seats.

Both vehicles feature high-resolution screens that display important driving information including speedometer, engine oil temperature and electric range (Taycan only). The GLE also comes with an optional 12-inch digital instrument cluster that displays all of this information plus navigation instructions and audio controls.

The Porsche also has better connectivity options than its Mercedes counterpart; it offers up to 15 GB of 4G LTE data per month as well as Amazon Alexa integration for voice control over various functions such as climate control settings or charging preferences.

Technology & Safety

If you’re looking for the most advanced technology and safety features, Porsche Taycan is your best bet. The German automaker has built its reputation on pioneering new technology, and its latest electric car is no different.

The Porsche Taycan offers a ton of enhanced driver assistance systems that will keep you safer than ever before on the road — including lane assist, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert and more.

On the other hand, Mercedes-Benz GLE Class only comes with basic features like adaptive cruise control and automatic braking in entry-level trims (or actually doesn’t have them at all).


The Taycan produces 626 horsepower compared to the 563 horsepower produced by its competitor. In terms of torque output (the force that propels a vehicle or object forward), it can produce up to 738 pound-feet of torque compared to just 541 pound-feet for its competitor.

The Bottom Line

The 2022 Porsche Taycan is a better car than the 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLE Class in most respects. If you’re looking for an SUV, then the GLE Class is still a great choice, but if you’re looking for something more high-performance and luxurious with less electronic nannies, then this might be the one for you.
