Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class SUV officially revealed!
After unveiling the GLE-Class SUV coupe and the GLE63 S Coupe Mercedes-Benz has officially revealed the all new GLE-Class SUV, in both, its regular and AMG avatars. The German car maker claims that across the available engine range, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are reduced by around 17% in comparison to the outgoing model (M-Class). All diesel models will be equipped with the nine-speed 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission as standard.
The immediately tangible change, is the new front fascia that features a similar design and styling pattern as the new GLE-Coupe, C-Class and S-Class. This can be mainly attributed to the new headlamps. The front grille features two thick slats, the front bumper has been tweaked and gets revised air vents, and a silver skid plate. At the back, the SUV features restyled tail lamps and more sporty tail-pipes. The GLE is more of an evolutionary upgrade and it largely serves the purpose of switching over to the new model nomenclature.
On the inside, the GLE gets a revised multi-function steering wheel, the audio 20 CD infotainment system with a 7-inch display and silver lined AC vents with a gloss black surround. The centre console houses the COMAND controller with the touchpad fitted above and the SUV is available with interior colours such as ginger beige, espresso brown, saddle brown or porcelain, which are combined with black interior elements.
The GLE will be offered with a total of 5 engine options, featuring four, six or eight cylinders. Given below are their details:

Re: Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class SUV officially revealed!
I am hating the tablet on the dash! I was ok with the one on the A & B Class, but now this is just too tacky!
That aside, it seems just like a regular ML. I am in love with the criss-cross pattern seats - wish Mercedes India gives that option when the car is launched (and not on the launch edition / stock clearance edition). It just makes the interiors look so much more appealing and upmarket than the current artificial leather used.
