Mercedes-Benz GLE Preview
Mercedes-Benz replaced the ML Class with the new GLE In Europe and has now brought the car to India. The car is being targeted as the E-Class of SUVs with premium luxurious interiors. Available in two diesel engine variants the GLE will try very hard to take on the Volvo XC90, soon-to-be launched Audi Q7 and the BMW X5.
Introduced in Indian market under a new nameplate, GLE SUV is essentially a facelift version of the M-Class, launched in India in diesel variants initially. A single petrol variant, was however introduced later, in wake of rising demand for petrol driven models. The GLE SUV range is available in three variants- 250 d 4MATIC, 350 d 4MATIC and 400 4MATIC, and there is a coupe version on offer as well-GLE 450 AMG Coupe. Under the hood, GLE gets a choice between two diesel and one petrol engine. The diesel engines are paired to a 9G-Tronic gearbox and the single petrol unit gets 7G-Tronic Plus transmission system. The entire range feature Mercedes’ 4MATIC all-wheel drive system that transmits power to all four wheels.
Mercedes Benz GLE Exterior
Apart from a new name, GLE doesn’t get much of a change, save for the subtle cosmetic upgrades on the outside including reworked bumpers, headlamp, tail lights and outside rear view mirrors. Besides these changes, GLE is essentially a M-Class, sold under a new name. The full-size premium SUV has a commanding stance with an aggressive front profile that features double-slats on the backdrop of mesh grille, large headlamps and a wide hood with sharp character lines. On the side, GLE gets a prominent shoulder line with multiple supporting lines, a separate rear window, flared arches and fat tyres. Rear styling is done tastefully as well, the pointed spoiler atop, wrap-around rear lights, dual exhaust pipes and large bumper together make for a voguish rear. The coupe version is not just styled differently but also has a distinctive silhouette with the typical coupe roofline and a couple of other differences.
Mercedes Benz GLE Interior
Inside, the GLE is a lot better than the previous model. Thankfully, the dashboard does not look cluttered as before, although it still features a bunch of equipment like the large touch-screen on the top of it, an integrated infotainment system, large temperature dials and air con vents etc. Space is lavish and there are multiple storage points, even the luggage space is ample and use of premium leather makes the cabin more upmarket. The coupe version is largely same as its SUV sibling, but it does not offer as much space at rear courtesy the swooping coupe roofline.

While the 450 petrol is the obvious performer, the 400d is my pick for all its grunt and power. Its also the right blend of sophisticated and smooth with brawny and brave.
