Mercedes-Benz GLE 350de Coupe 2019 review

Autocar Wednesday, 4 December 2019 ()
New diesel-electric hybrid drivetrain adds new dimension to second-generation GLE Coupe, with a class-leading electric range and tax busting CO2 qualities Mercedes-Benz, by its own admission, was late in joining the SUV Coupe ranks, preferring to sit back and take a wait-and-see approach as its more progressive premium brand rivals led the way into what has now become an indispensable part of any large scale luxury car maker’s line-up these days.But after tasting initial sales success at the more profitable end of its line-up with the first-generation GLE Coupe, it has wasted little time in launching this new second-generation model, which boasts both more resolved exterior styling and greater interior luxury than its predecessor launched in 2015.The new GLE Coupe is aimed directly as the likes of the Audi Q8, BMW X6 and Porsche Cayenne Coupe. Unlike the model it replaces, though, it is not merely a re-bodied version of the GLE SUV.To help provide it with a more individual appearance than previously, Mercedes-Benz has rung the changes, giving it a 62mm shorter wheelbase than its more upright US-produced sibling at 2935mm among other measures. Compared to the old GLE Coupe, though, it has grown; length is up by 39mm at 4939mm, width has increased by 7mm to 2010mm while its height is a scant 1mm lower than before at 1730mm.As with the bullish exterior, the interior has been thoroughly redesigned in line with moves made with the GLE SUV. Key elements include a pair of 12.3-in digital displays for the instruments and infotainment functions. As in other recent new Mercedes-Benz models, they are housed within single panel atop a new multi-layered dashboard and are controlled by the German car maker’s new MBUX operating system with touch screen, conversation speech and gesture control functions complimenting a small touchpad controllers within the horizontal spokes of a new multi-function steering wheel and a larger touchpad within the centre console.
