The MDX is designed to get noticed with impressive definition throughout the body and metallic accent pieces on the nose and sides. Its functional features include fog lamps, up to 20-inch wheels, a sunroof, heated side-view mirrors with integrated turn signals, and other equipment. The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE, on the other hand, has a comparable profile with a flat nose. The grille has a traditional Mercedes-Benz look with rounded corners. The sides are defined by a deep, horizontal scoop placed over a crisp accent line.
