The Mercedes Benz GLE is known to make the best of every ground, because of its powerful structure and functionality. This SUV is almost as good as the ML-Class with a few new changes, completley new name and a changed personality. After a long wait, this SUV became the brand new eye candy as soon as it hit the Indian Streets. It competes with Mercedes E Class, BMW X3.
The Mercedes Benz GLE comes with both Diesel and Petrol Engine options. The V6 3.0L Diesel Engine offers a power of 258 bhp and torque of 619 Nm, while the 2.0L 4 Cylinder Diesel Engine offers a power of 203 bhp and torque of 500 Nm. The 5.5L Twin Turbo V8 Engine offers a power of 525 bhp and torque of 700 Nm. This is mated to a 7 speed AMD SPEEDSHIFT Transmission. The 5 DYNAMIC SELECT modes allow adjustment of parameters such as characteristics of engine, transmission, steering and suspension. The 4MATIC Permanent All-Wheel Drive System, Suspension with Steel Springs and other such features make the performance of the Mercedes Benz GLE, so dynamic.
This SUV is a design marvel in itself. Even though the structure of the ML-Class is maintained, a brand new personality is given to the Mercedes Benz GLE. The sturdy SUV body is accommodating and big enough to intimidate and at the same time offer a sense of belonging. New bumpers have been fitted on the front and rear giving the shape a slightly new boost of design. The aluminum roof rails add height to the already big body, while the LED Intelligent Light System and the Mirror package help guide the way. The aerodynamically optimized light-alloy wheels further lift up the body giving it a larger than life feel. The body is available in various colour options, making it all the more versatile based on personal preferences.
The Space Arrangement and the seating in the Mercedes Benz GLE is designed to offer optimum comfort. Features like memory package for the front passenger and driver, touchpad and the smart phone integration make the journey luxurious. The THERMATIC 2-zone automatic climate control, the THERMATIC 3-zone automatic climate control and the Command Online feature further help to add the additional comfort. Keyless-GO starting function and the Audio 20 CD including pre-installation are other features that help in commuting hassle-free. Safety is looked into with the help of features like Active Safety, Restraint System, Safe Driving & Parking and Driving Assistance.
