A sportier choice: the new Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupé.
Mercedes-Benz is combining two classes of vehicle – each with its own distinct style – to make a new model, the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupé. The sporty nature of a coupé dominates, imbued with the striking characteristics of a robust SUV. In addition to convincing on-road vehicle dynamics, the GLE Coupé looks impressive as well. With its flowing side contour, elongated and low greenhouse, striking radiator grille with central chrome louvre and rear end design, the GLE Coupé cites styling features typical of particularly sporty Mercedes-Benz models.
Sportiness, dynamism and agility.
The top-of-the-range model Mercedes-AMG GLE 43 4MATIC Coupé, the first representative of a new Mercedes-AMG product line – the AMG sports models – is particularly attractive. In addition to the generous amount of standard equipment, the DYNAMIC SELECT dynamic handling control system, the Sports Direct-Steer system and the driver assistance systems typical of the brand, the GLE Coupé always comes with the 9G-TRONIC nine-speed automatic transmission and 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive.
“Our GLE Coupé combines typical coupé attributes, such as sportiness, dynamism and agility, with the confident presence, versatility and robustness of an SUV”, says Prof. Dr Thomas Weber, Board Member responsible for Group Research and Mercedes-Benz Cars Development.
Stability pact: AIRMATIC with ADS Plus.
In addition to the ground-breaking powertrain configuration, the newly designed AIRMATIC air suspension – available for the first time with the continuously variable damping system ADS Plus – guarantees extremely stable driving. The damping system changes its area of emphasis depending on the preselected DYNAMIC SELECT mode.
SPORT+ focuses on the greatest possible lateral dynamics with the best possible ride comfort. Conversely, COMFORT mode enables maximum ride comfort with the best possible dynamics.
Even greater agility.
4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive always goes hand in hand with safe, harmonious and sporty handling. The GLE 350 d Coupé and GLE 400 Coupé models feature even torque distribution of 50:50 between the front and rear axles. In the particularly sporty Mercedes-AMG GLE 43 4MATIC Coupé, this configuration is modified in preference of even greater agility and more pronounced dynamics around the car’s vertical axis, increasing the thirst for cornering. The drive is split in a ratio of 40:60 here.
GLE 350 d Coupé:
Fuel consumption combined: 7.2-6.9 l/100km;
combined CO₂ emissions: 189-180 g/km.
GLE 400 Coupé:
Fuel consumption combined: 9.0-8.7 l/100km;
combined CO₂ emissions: 211-199 g/km.
Mercedes-AMG GLE 43 4MATIC Coupé:
Fuel consumption combined: 9.4-8.9 l/100km;
combined CO₂ emissions: 219-209 g/km.*
The DYNAMIC SELECT transmission modes SPORT and SPORT+ deliver superior longitudinal agility and lateral dynamics – specifically as a result of the perfect interplay between the modified driving dynamics control systems ASR, ESP® with Curve Dynamic Assist, the electronic traction system 4ETS and the brake control system ADAPTIVE BRAKE.
Sounds from sporty and dominant to poised and reticent.
The new AMG sports models display impressive product substance and honour the promise of sports performance with a higher output class, standard all-wheel drive and also sophisticated chassis solutions. The DYNAMIC SELECT variable dynamic control system assigns fundamentally different characteristics to the five transmission modes of INDIVIDUAL, COMFORT, SLIPPERY, SPORT and SPORT+, which the driver is able to select using a rotary control on the centre console. The engine produces the whole range of sounds from sporty and dominant to poised and reticent.
