Discover the New GLE Coupé from Mercedes-Benz

Since its inception over a century ago, Mercedes Benz has been a driving force in automotive excellence. Every year, the brand finds new ways to improve and refine on past successes. Thus, it is with great pleasure that we announce the arrival of every new model as well as new permutations of familiar classics. We take the time to get to know everything about new models so that we can better assist our customers in making the right decision to suit their needs. However, when it comes to the new GLE Coupe, we’re finding it hard to contain our excitement. We just can’t wait to share all the incredible features that make this vehicle so special.

So, join us as we discover the new GLE Coupe from Mercedes Benz…

In a nutshell

The GLE Coupe aims to provide drivers with the best of both worlds, boasting the elegant and sporty aspect of a coupe combined with the robust capability of a large premium-SUV. As well as an emphasis on performance and aesthetics, the GLE provides a luxurious driving experience, leveraging cutting edge technologies for improved comfort and driver safety.

The Coupe was unveiled for the first time at The Frankfurt Motor Show earlier this month and will be arriving in our dealership in spring 2020. Let us explain why we’re so excited about that...

On the outside

The exterior design of the GLE Coupe places a strong emphasis on sportiness and elegance. Indeed, the vehicle’s slogan is “more luxury, more coupe”.  As such, the whole design concept plays to the inherent strengths of a coupe. For example, sleeker design and improved aerodynamics are able to reduce wind resistance by 9% when compared to previous models despite the exact same front surface. Headlamps feature full-LED technology as standard.

Optional AIRMATIC air suspension and E-ACTIVE BODY CONTROL active suspension running on 48 V allow for greater control over vehicle dynamics making for a responsive and comfortable driving experience, even when taking the coupe off-road. Oh, that’s right! This sleek and sporty coupe has surprising off-road capability with adjustable ground clearance of up to 55mm at the touch of a button.

On the inside

You can expect sporty contemporary luxury when you step into the new GLE coupe as well as more comfortable space than previous models. You’ll also get to enjoy the brand-new infotainment system which is powered by the latest generation of the MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) which is characterised by its intuitive operating structure and beautiful graphics with stunning visual quality.

Under the bonnet

The new GLE coupe is powered by an electrified 3.0-litre engine with twin turbocharging which is handled by a turbocharger and an electric auxiliary compressor. 

The 6-cylinder in-line engine generates 320 kW (435 hp) delivering a whopping maximum torque of 520 Nm. Its EQ Boost starter-alternator also contributes an additional 16 kW (22 hp) and 250 Nm of torque for a short period, providing great performance at slow speeds while also feeds the 48-volt onboard electrical system.

Indeed, the EQ Boost starter-alternator is not just an add-on but a key component of the 48 V system. It’s not just an alternator, it’s also responsible for certain hybrid functions making for even greater fuel efficiency. Combined fuel consumption 9.3 l/100 km, combined and CO2 emissions are just 212 g/km.
