The GLE LWB is not a stretched version of the GLE, but instead a marketing term compared to the outgoing car:
Mercedes @ Auto Expo 2020-01.jpg

Front gets twin-slat grille and a large full-width airdam below:
Mercedes @ Auto Expo 2020-02.jpg

Black cladding on the wheel arches and below door sills:
Mercedes @ Auto Expo 2020-03.jpg

No, thats not a low rider, but gets independently adjustable air suspension on each wheel called as the E-Active Body control:

Apart from the cars, the Mercedes stall also had these user experience units:

One can play around the AMG performance steering wheel system, navigate menus, etc.:

This controller offers direct access to the AMG drive programs displayed on the integrated LCD screen:

Definitely one of the best showcasing efforts . And it sure helps that all of their new cars are absolutely kick ass. Love the colours & attention-to-detail, to even include a corner for their used car department! I don't think I've ever seen a pre-owned car at the Auto Expo.

They had a large number of their own employees and product specialist from their Dealership as well. Had answers to most of the questions and were aware of the products. MB India is doing all the right things in my opinion.

Apart from the cars, I loved that red insert on the steering wheel of the Mercedes-AMG C43 4Matic Coupe. A very simple but powerful indicator. I have always wished for a little more advanced indicator that alerts us when at times we turn the steering wheel 360 degrees and forget about it and come back and start the car assuming the wheels are straight.
