2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe: An SUV with Serious Style
October 28 2015,
The idea of an SUV in coupe guise isn’t entirely new, however, Mercedes-Benz has elevated the body style to a whole new level of sophistication and attraction with its GLE Coupe.
An SUV that Will Own the Road
Somehow Mercedes managed to combine sleek, sensual lines with masculine and muscular features on the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe. There’s no denying the GLE’s aggressive stance, but there’s also a sophisticated air about it, as it carries the huge Mercedes Tristar on the wide front grille with just the right amount of chrome accenting. Step up to the AMG version and the body becomes even more aggressive and features styling cues (that are also practical) like the twin power-dome hood that features intakes for air flow, as well as wider fender arches. Overall, the look of the GLE Coupe is one that has some serious stance and presence on the road.
Inside you’ll find a tailored cabin that can be as bespoke as the owner desires. From leather to metal to wood, the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe features high-end luxurious materials, brought together in a sophisticated upscale design that’s a pure joy to sit in. Available ambient lighting ensures the dash and interior are properly illuminated at all times, and leather seating keeps all passengers comfortable regardless of seat choice.
An optional Bang & Olufsen BeoSound system is available, but it isn’t just a treat for the ears. The design elements that go along with the B&O system are truly stunning. With artistic tweeter designs that are gorgeous to behold, you might just opt for the system on design alone. It is truly stunning, both to listen to and look at.
While the design of the 2016 MB GLE Coupe is the first thing one notices, really it’s what’s underneath the beautifully sculpted hood that matters the most. Three engines are available, as there are the same number of models to choose from. Each model offers a unique experience that’s just as thrilling as the next.
Tons of Power Under the Hood
The 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE 350d 4MATIC Coupe features a turbocharged diesel V6 that produces 249 horsepower and a glorious 457 lb-ft of torque. Said engine is paired with a 9-speed transmission. The 2016 GLE 450 AMG 4MATIC Coupe is equipped with a 3.0L bi-turbo V6 that pumps out 362 horsepower and 384 lb-ft of torque, and also features Merc’s new 9-speed transmission. And at the top of the ladder sits the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE 63 S 4MATIC Coupe that boasts a handcrafted 5.5L AMG bi-turbo V8 that produces 577 horsepower and 561 lb-ft of torque, and is paired with a fabulous 7-speed AMG SPEEDSHIFT PLUS transmission that’ll see this sizable SUV go from 0-100km/h in just 4.2 seconds.
The 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe truly is a stunning vehicle in both engineering and design terms. Stylish and, one might even say, fashionable, the GLE is also practical with Merc’s AWD 4MATIC system and a host of engines and features to choose from as well.
