Ditto here. You might want to consider a BMW X5d if you want to stick with a Diesel engine. I would highly recommend a Q7 TDI but those aren't for sale right now because of a little issue.GLE 4 cyl. diesel is very noisy compared to the Touareg TDI. Lackluster performance. Interior is nice but to many options drive the price up. I test drove one and wasen't impressed.
It's a European 7-seater, which are a size down from North American 7-seater - it's to do with size of people.Oddly enough, for those who need a 3rd row, it's still a tad too small...
If I didn't need a 3rd row, I'd never leave the the ideal wheel base of a Touareg.
Might explain the popularity of the GL, in these parts, in comparison to the Q7...It's a European 7-seater, which are a size down from North American 7-seater - it's to do with size of people.
Europeans get a 7-seat version of Hyundai Santa Fe Sport and Opel/ Vauxhall Antara (aks Cheverolet Captiva Sport).
