    Dynamic exterior design in the style of Sensual Purity




    The modern luxury, elegance and sportiness of a coupé and the robustness of an SUV: that is the design message of the new GLE Coupé. Its elongated proportions with short overhangs and large flush-mounted wheels and its dynamic greenhouse with the long side-window line exude high value and exclusivity.



    Significantly lower aerodynamic drag



    Lots of detail work lowers the drag coefficient by nine percent compared with the predecessor to as low as Cd = 0.32 in the corresponding configuration. Sources of wind noises were also eliminated specifically.



    The vehicle offering the most active driving experience among the large SUVs of Mercedes-Benz




    Compared with the GLE, the wheelbase is 60 millimetres shorter and the steering ratio is more direct. The three suspension versions (steel suspension, AIRMATIC air suspension and the active suspension E-ACTIVE BODY CONTROL on a 48-volt basis) have in part a coupé-specific set-up.


    Comfortable spaciousness in the elegant coupé


    Crucial centimetres of more space for the passengers than in the predecessor and the largest boot in the vehicle category with a cargo capacity of up to 1790 litres and a loading length of almost two metres make the GLE Coupé spacious and versatile.



    Modern luxury on board


    The ambience is characterised by the latest generation of the MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) infotainment system with intuitive operating structure and brilliant graphics with high picture quality, fine materials and high-quality workmanship. ENERGIZING comfort control enables the interconnected use of several comfort systems in individual wellness programmes.



    In-line diesel engines of the latest generation



    The powerful diesel engines of the latest engine generation are refined, strong and smooth plus efficient and low in emissions to boot.



    Plug-in hybrid of the third generation drives locally emission-free for up to 100 km


    With 100 kW of electric power, the new GLE Coupé turns into a close-range electric car and drives especially dynamic, energy-efficient and comfortable over long distances.



    Fully variable transfer case with torque-on-demand as standard


    Driving fun on winding roads, grip on slippery surfaces and a high level of safety reserves in all driving situations thanks to constantly variable torque distribution between front and rear axle.



    Latest generation of driving assistance systems and expanded PRE-SAFE® functions


    Cooperative assistants with a host of Intelligent Drive functions ease the burden on the driver in many driving tasks, PRE-SAFE® increases the protection in an ever growing number of situations in which an accident is impending or imminent. This makes driving in the new GLE Coupé a particularly relaxed and safe experience.
