HEAD DOWN TO AUTOHAUS SHOWROOM TO VIEW THE LATEST MERCEDES-BENZ GLE 450 MATIC FROM 28 TO 30 JULY. REFRESHMENTS PROVIDED AS WELL.
The Mercedes-Benz GLE continues to set new standards as a premium SUV. It continues this tradition with the model update: its exterior design is unmistakable, the interior is luxuriously elegant and the technology makes driving a real experience. Supported by a sophisticated safety concept, the driving pleasure is at a high level. At the same time, the interior is as variable as you want it to be – and can be customised as desired. Summarised in one word, the GLE is essentially one thing above all: superior.
The changes in the model update mainly concern the design of the exterior and interior, the telematics, drive systems and equipment logic. In the exterior, the front and rear design has been updated for an even more striking, modern appearance In addition to technical updates, the interior also features new design features for the cockpit. The highlights include, for example: the diamond grille with integrated Mercedes star and Mercedes-Benz pattern in chrome, the AMG-specific front and rear apron with AMG side sills in body colour, AMG-specific air outlets, front and rear wing flares and visually impressive AMG light-alloy wheels.
The Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 4MATIC updatemodel’s improved power and torque of the engine combines superior driving performance with the pleasant smoothness of a 6-cylinder in-line petrol engine.. The integrated second-generation starter-generator (ISG2) has an electrical output of up to 17 kW and supplies energy for the 48 V onboard network.
With the Chrome package you can show that elegance is important to you. This enhancement with selected design features lends the standard interior specific additional highlights: numerous surrounds are finished in stylish silver chrome. This lends a higher-quality ambience to your interior.
Experience greater performance and exclusivity with the legendary Burmester sound. The high-performance speakers deliver first-class surround sound. 13 high-performance speakers and a system output of 590 watts create an imposing soundstage. Sophisticated vehicle noise compensation (VNC) adjusts music and sound dynamically to your driving conditions. With the fader and balance function, you can distribute the sound more to the front, rear or equally to all seats – or focus the listening experience in a seat row of your choice with the Sound Focus function.
Brushed aluminium trim with light longitudinal grain. The trim lends your interior an individual look. It blends in harmoniously while also creating exciting contrasts. As such, it reinforces and underscores the interior design. At the same time, the trim is a continually discernible sign of the quality of a meticulously finished premium product.
The GLE remains at the forefront of premium SUVs. To this end, it is constantly being optimised and is full of innovations – the MBUX multimedia system of the NTG7 generation. The Widescreen Cockpit enables information to be truly experienced. Display cluster comprising fully digital colour displays in a flatscreen look, each with a screen diagonal of 12.3 inches and a resolution of 1920 x 720 pixels. The desired content can be positioned individually and the host of functions controlled intuitively thanks to touch technology.
The multifunction steering wheel in nappa leather combines fine materials with innovative ease of operation via the Touch Control panels. You operate the key vehicle functions without having to take your hands off the steering wheel.
For the Transparent Bonnet camera view, your vehicle assembles the images from the front camera and the two exterior mirror cameras. A virtual lane is added to this view, based on your steering angle. You can see the result on the central display. This way, you have an exact view of the route and can react in time if necessary. Visualisation pays off not only in the case of obstacles such as scree or boulders, but also in challenging terrain: you can thus better assess crests, slopes and hollows if they are not visible through the windscreen due to an angle that is too steep.
Furthermore, it is one of the most impressive representatives of the “Sensual Clarity” design idiom.
The Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 4Matic
The SUV Trendsetter brought to you by Mercedes-Benz Autohaus. The new Mercedes-Benz GLE is not exceptionally dynamic and more comfortable on the road, it’s almost more competent off the beaten track than ever before. Well, I hope there will be a test drive version for the latest GLE because the specs and the features are one of the best in the Mercedes-Benz line.
The Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 4Matic as the first petrol model is powered by an in-line six-cylinder engine systematically electrified with 48 volt technology. Its performance data 367 horsepower and 500Nm of torque with a further 250 Nm of torque and the best thing is that they have another 22 horsepower available via EQ Boost over short periods.
This is also a 7-seater, ideal for family with kids who can seat at the back. The seats are automated as well for the convenient of passengers instead of using the latch manually to move the seats back and forth.
The exterior design has a powerful presence, even during my first viewing of the new GLE at Mercedes-Benz Autohaus. Let’s just say the design has awaken the desire of many Mercedes fans. The GLE 450’s proportions with a long wheelbase, short overhangs and large, flush-fitted wheels. The front section is designed with upright radiator grille in an octagonal SUV interpretation, the prominent, chrome-plated underguard.
You may even find the latest GLE sleeker and sportier as it cuts an athletic figure from the rear.
As for the interior design, it’s luxuriously elegant and powerfully aggressive. The driver and the passenger will enjoy the robust, progressive features of an SUV. The central element in the dashboard’s design is a sporty, stylish cockpit unit embedded in a striking dashboard support.
It was nice to see two prominent grab handles in between the drive and front seat passenger to indicate that this has a off-road feature. You will definitely enjoy the ergonomics of the latest GLE 450 and you will also appreciate the flowing leather surface that create a modern, luxurious impression.
