The Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupé delivers SUV practicality, and boasts sporty good looks. An imposing presence on the road, the GLE certainly makes a statement – but there’s much more to this car than its undoubted handsomeness.
The GLE Coupé’s rising window line and swooping roofline provides it with an arresting silhouette, and it rides on lightweight, eye-catching 20-inch alloy wheels too. The body is stylishly muscular and possesses four doors, facilitating easy access for passengers to each compartment – particularly since the doors open wide. The car is tall too, so there’s no need to crouch when affixing child seats, for example.
The vehicle’s head-turning exterior leads one to expect the same high quality inside, and the GLE Coupé certainly doesn’t disappoint. A well-built cabin has a distinctly premium look and feel to it. Front-row travellers get to sit in supportive, multi-adjustable sports seats, and each of the car’s five positions delivers superb comfort, even during the longest of journeys. There’s plenty of legroom for all concerned too, and the driver additionally benefits from a rake-and-reach-adjustable steering wheel, so finding his or her ideal position is simple. There are plenty of stowage compartments provided throughout the cabin; perfect for keeping tabs on drinks and sundry possessions. The GLE boasts a 650-litre boot space too, which expands to 1,720 litres with 60/40 split-folding rear seats flipped.
Entry-level AMG trims are powered by a 3.0-litre 258bhp diesel engine, which manages up to 39.2mpg. This six-cylinder unit also delivers a peak torque of 620Nm, 0-60mph in less than seven seconds and a top speed of 140mph. What’s more, it offers a maximum towing capacity of 2,900kg, making it rather useful when it comes to pulling a caravan or boat.
Keyless entry provides the car’s owner with easy access to the interior. All GLE iterations come with the German marque’s COMAND infotainment system, which delivers, among other things, satellite navigation (with 3D mapping) and internet access. Audio entertainment comes courtesy of an eight-speaker sound system, which includes DAB digital radio, delivering an array of stations in pin-sharp sound quality.
The GLE boasts an array of driving aids and passive safety features, including Electronic Stability Programme, Cruise Control and ISOFIX child seat attachments. The combination of reversing camera, Active Parking Assist and Mercedes-Benz’s Parktronic system ensures that parking the car need never be an issue.
