Mercedes has launched the completely redesigned new 2021 GLE Coupe, which 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, giving a strong showing agasint rivals like the BMW X6 and the Audi Q8.
The entry level model in the 2021 GLE Coupe range is the GLE 400d 4MATIC. This 3.0 Litre V6 diesel is by no means understated: it packs an impressive 330 horsepower and can accelerate to 60mph in only 5.7 seconds. Next in the series is the GLE 53, the first of 2 hot models breathed on by in house tuning firm AMG which is even faster than the diesel and can reach 60mph in around 5.3 seconds with a 48 V mild hybrid system to boost low down torque while the turbo spools up, Or, should you require even higher performance and greater acceleration, the Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S model offers sport-car dynamics, with its 4 Litre twin turbo V8 petrol engine, and impressive SUV dimensions.
Unlike the standard GLE SUV, the Coupe versions are only available in top AMG Line Premium spec, and almost no optional extras to add, so the standard car is effectively fully loaded
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 £100k plus 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 2021 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 400d is the most affordable model in the range, with an on-the-road recommended price of around £70,000 for a model with such high performance, huge specification and distinctive appearance, the price is comparably reasonable and will add to the Coupe’s appeal, with rivals like the BMW X6 and Audi Q8.
