There aren’t many cars that can claim to be able to withstand a dinosaur attack. But the new Mercedes GLE Coupe is more than just a comfortable family car: it is a muscular, imposing vehicle, which made its first UK appearance in the new Jurassic World movie. The Mercedes GLE Coupe combines the stylish, curved roofline of a sports Coupe with the powerful, spacious proportions of an SUV. The result is a car that offers not only a comfortable, elevated driving position, but also feels outstandingly dynamic and responsive to drive. The GLE Coupe comes with a choice of two different petrol engines and an efficient V6 diesel engine, all combined with Mercedes’ intelligent four-wheel drive 4-MATIC system, and includes an impressive selection of luxury features and interior design.
The entry level model in the 2018 GLE Coupe range is the GLE 350d 4MATIC. This 3.0 Litre V6 diesel is by no means understated: it packs an impressive 620Nm of torque and can accelerate to 60mph in only 7.0 seconds. Next in the series is the GLE 450 AMG 4MATIC, which is even faster than the diesel and can reach 60mph in around 5.7 seconds. Or, should you require even higher performance and greater acceleration, the Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S model offers sport-car dynamics, with its 5.5 Litre 8-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine, and impressive SUV dimensions.
Both the GLE 350d and 450 AMG versions are available in either AMG Line spec, or the more expensive and up-market designo line spec. While there are plenty of superb features to enjoy in the AMG Line spec, including 21 inch alloys and elegant Nappa leather upholstery, discerning drivers will appreciate the fact that the designo line version offers additional trim options, along with a panoramic electric sunroof, and Active Parking Assist for greater convenience when parking.
The 6-cylinder 350d and 450 AMG models both include the latest 9G-TRONIC PLUS automatic transmission, which features fully calibrated gear ratios for maximum efficiency, and delivers either rapid, sporty gear changes or smooth, subtle shifts, depending on the mode chosen on the car’s Dynamic Select system.
The top-of-the-range Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S comes with a higher specification, reflecting the premium design from the leading high performance experts at AMG. The substantial £96,000 price-tag includes an array of stunning features, such as eye-catching 22 inch black alloy wheels, AMG performance steering wheel and exclusive AMG instrument cluster. Beneath the bonnet, the 63 S model is further enhanced by AMG sports suspension and the innovative Active Curve System, for a more enjoyable driving experience.
All models in the 2018 GLE Coupe range come with a reassuring number of safety features as standard. The cockpit includes airbags on all sides, rear Isofix points, and fully adjustable head restraints, while every model is also fitted with automatic braking, driver fatigue detection system and traffic sign recognition, among many other advanced features. In terms of price, the GLE 350d 4MATIC is the most affordable model in the range, with an on-the-road recommended price of around £60,700 in AMG Line spec, and just under £70,000 in designo Line trim. For a model with such high performance, and distinctive appearance, the price is comparably reasonable and will add to the Coupe’s appeal.
