Nice! The GLE is a great car. My dad took delivery of his GLE350d last month, and I got to drive it a few weeks ago. Noticed an immediate difference in the way the car handles and sounds compared to the previous model (the ML350 diesel). The engine is absolutely amazing, it's so quiet it's hard to tell if the engine is on, which is amazing for a diesel. And we've already taken it off-road, and it handles beautifully (sorry couldn't resist posting a picture )

I'll post a detailed review of the car in the near future (working on it!).

I guess your car has the offroad package with height adjustable Airmatic suspension, Indian version does not have it.

How I wish they had done this with the previous ML's as well. I've always cribbed about my ML 350 not being a petrol. I might just trade it in now, if the 400 is not mindlessly priced and I get a good deal.

Yes it does. It's not standard, but part of the 'Country' package offered by MB. It was great value ($2500 extra and it includes the on-off road package, Airmatic suspension, underbody protection, adaptive damping suspension system, boot tub and temperature controlled cup holders). The 350d comes with 20" AMG wheels and the 'vision' package as standard. The only other thing what was added on was the AMG exterior package.

The GLE-250d caught my eye, but on a bit of research, seemed mediocre.For this kind of price, i'd pick the Land Rover Discovery Sport, it looks much more butch and has good off road credentials.
This guy seems to agree with me
