2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe revealed


Mercedes-Benz recently revealed the new GLE Coupe. It is a supposed combination of both coupe and crossover, designed to the tackle the BMW X6.

Exterior-wise, it shares a few design cues of the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe, such as the roofline and rear tail-lights. The GLE 450 AMG features a bodykit and bigger lightweight rims.

The AMG model also gets a 9-speed automatic, AIRMATIC air suspension, an adaptive damping system and an automatic lowering function which reduces the ride height at higher speeds.

The interior features sport seats, a sports steering wheel and a new infotainment display. The cabin is covered in silver shadow accents, and aluminum or wood trim. The AMG model gets a nappa leather sports steering wheel, stainless steel pedals and carbon-fibre trim with piano black accents.

The models most likely to hit the Gulf are the GLE 400 with the 328 hp twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre V6, and the GLE 450 AMG which gets the same engine, but higher-tuned to 362 hp.

The Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe could hit the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and other GCC countries in the summer on 2015.

  1. Why oh Why did they have to do down the X6 way of design instead of the stunning Evoque way. Urgh!

  2. Looks great. It is all about preference, but i am VERY glad they didnt go down the evoque avenue..

  3. Coupe with 4 doors? And roof looks too low at the back, almost as on evoque.

  4. Ugly interior compare to new x6, the only good part is the rear lights looks like amg gt
