A bespoke AMG body kit, with its muscular styling, provides the GLE 63 S with genuine road presence. A rising window line and raised ride height supply the vehicle with its determined-looking posture. The car rides on lightweight, eye-catching alloy wheels that are created to impress and designed to deliver optimal efficiency. Just one button-press opens the vehicle’s tailgate, providing the owner with easy access to the boot.
Open any of the car’s four doors to discover a lavish, Nappa leather-upholstered interior. Each seat offers plenty of support and comfort, and front-row travellers further benefit from electrically adjustable positions that feature memory functionality. Low-slung seating ensures that there’s enough headroom, as well as legroom, even in the back row, and there’s space in the rear compartment for three adults too. A panoramic electric sunroof ensures that plenty of natural light is allowed into the cabin. Thanks to 60/40 split-folding rear seats, a generously proportioned 650-litre boot space can be further expanded whenever extra luggage capacity is needed.
The car is fitted with a 5.5-litre 577bhp petrol engine that, via seven-speed automatic transmission, delivers its power to all four wheels. This V8 unit produces 760Nm of torque, 60% of which is supplied to the car’s rear wheels. The GLE 63 S sprints from 0-60mph in just four seconds and enables a top speed of 155mph. Choose the drive mode that best suits the prevailing motoring conditions – or your own preferences, from Comfort, Sport, Slippery and Individual. The latter allows you to manage gearshift changes via wheel-mounted paddles.
Keyless-Go provides the driver with unfettered access to the vehicle, and starts the engine up in no time at all. Whenever you vacate the car, it securely locks the doors too. The GLE 63 S is supplied with a COMAND infotainment system, complete with eight-speaker Harmon Kardon sound system that includes DAB radio and AUX, SD, USB and Bluetooth® connectivity. Navigation features include 3D mapping, Live Traffic information and much more, all delivered via an eight-inch colour display.
The German marque’s GLE range is based upon the outgoing M-Class range, which was awarded a five-star crash-test rating by Euro NCAP. The car comes with an array of safety features. Included is Active Curve System, which, among other things, provides enhanced levels of comfort when driving at higher speeds, or travelling off-road. A slew of passive safety features include a full suite of airbags and ISOFIX-child seat attachment points, ensuring that travellers of all ages are kept as secure as possible.
