Default Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 Coupe to be launched on September 23

Mercedes is gearing up to launch the AMG GLE 53 Coupe in India on September 23, 2020. Bookings for the high-performance SUV will commence from September 8 (11.00 am onwards).

As the name suggests, the GLE 53 Coupe is based on the GLE. It features a coupe-like roofline that gives it a more sporty appearance. Besides this, the wheelbase has been shortened by 60 mm compared to the regular GLE.

On the outside, it gets the sporty AMG treatment with a different grille and larger vents at the front as well as a diffuser with quad exhausts at the back. The SUV rides on 20-inch alloy wheels. On the inside, it gets a 3-spoke AMG steering wheel with aluminium shift paddles and carbon fibre trim on the door pads and dashboard. It has a touchscreen with the MBUX infotainment system.

The AMG GLE 53 Coupe is powered by a 3.0-litre, 6-cylinder petrol engine that produces 429 BHP @ 6,100 rpm and 520 Nm @ 1,800-5,800 rpm. The engine features a 48-volt mild-hybrid system that delivers an additional boost of 22 BHP and 250 Nm.

There will be only One fully Loaded variant, some expected features are -

AMG Nappa leather interiors
Head-up Display
Ventilated/ Heated front Seats
21 Inch Alloys
AMG performance Exhaust, selectable.

Plus the usual stuff available on GLE like wide-screen cockpit, ambient lighting, etc.

Expected around 1,2 Cr, will be a better loaded option over an X6 in my opinion. People who are missing Leather and some other premium features on an X5 or GLE can consider this. Being a CBU, cost will be on the higher side though.

Sir after looking at the official price, my belief is further reinforced that you are a spy for sure. How come you can predict the exact price and options, I'm flabbergasted and it's not the first time.

Being a 53 AMG and with all that extra power on tap plus the EQ boost trickery this is ONLY 2/10 of a second quicker to the ton than the X5/X6 40i; both which are a good 30-40L cheaper than the GLE 53.

I know there's a lot lot more to a car than just 0-100 times but it baffles me how a 53 AMG is only marginally faster than a 40i BMW. (Not a M performance mind you, just a regular B58 40i)
