2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe Review

The new Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe is a Mercedes-Benz that defies description. It’s a departure from anything that the German manufacturer has ever offered in its illustrious history. The new GLE Coupe combines the sportiness and handling of a coupe with the convenience and spaciousness of an SUV, all wrapped up in one head turning package. Although its based on the Mercedes-Benz M Class, the GLE Coupe is a much larger, brawnier vehicle. It’s 3 inches longer, almost 4 inches longer and its an inch lower to the ground. The sound, the power, and the overall vibe to this entry are pure sport coupe. Bu this GLE brings more to the table than just a coupe with its versatility and bravado. It wouldn’t be exaggerating to say that the GLE Coupe is an SUV with the heart and soul of a street racer. It combines a new 9-speed automatic transmission with 4-matic AWD to offer a variety of driving styles that range from lively and agile to cool and calm. Because of the greater range of ratios and quicker shift points, you’ll hardly notice the shift points in this 9-speed transmission.

Underneath the elite red engine cover is the 3.0L bi-turbo V6 that powerful turbo boost supported by a dynamic exhaust system. With 362-hp and 384-lb of torque standing by, this beefy coupe accelerates from standing still to 60 mph in just 5.5 seconds. The LED headlamps adjust depending on the various driving and weather conditions. The GLE 450 boasts the widest seat in its class. As you fold the 60/40 split rear seats flat to get 60 cubic feet of carpeted space, you get one of the largest cargo areas of any coupe in the world. The spacious and refined cabin pampers everyone inside with its hand-finished wood and hand-fitted upholstery. The polished wood, the soft well-tailored surfaces and the elaborate metallic embellishments exude class and elegance. The GLE provides 4 different driving modes such as comfort, sport, sport + and individual, a customizable setting.
