Equipped with even more standard features like MBUX with Voice Control, dual- 12.3-inch instrument cluster, Mercedes-Benz Navigation, LED headlamps, and hands-free access, Mercedes-Benz priced this new rendition of a classic SUV quite competitively, with the 2020 GLE 350 starting at an MSRP of $53,700.
Poised to set new standards in the luxury SUV market, the New GLE is built around a revolutionary SUV suspension system called the E-Active Body Control (termed as the world’s ‘most intelligent’ SUV suspension system by Mercedes-Benz). The driver assistance systems also show improvement with the Active Stop-and-Go Assist which enables the GLE to recognize traffic jams earlier and offer support to the driver throughout.
The interior expands offering a third-row seat for a more spacious and comfortable drive, while the exteriors updated aerodynamic design sets a precedence for aerodynamics in the SUV segment.
Some new optional features available when ordering your new GLE include:
- enlarged panoramic sliding sunroof (50% larger viewing area)
- 4-Zone Climate Control and Inductive Wireless Charging
- 9G-Tronic 9 Speed Automatic Transmission
