Distinctive features on the new GLE include the muscular lines between the C-pillars and the tail lights. Both elegant and powerful, they are typical of Mercedes-Benz's progressive design. The GLE's alloy wheels are larger than ever before. They're sized from 18 to 22 inches, with a design for every taste.
The GLE's headlamps feature sophisticated LED technology, available as standard across the range. They are works of art with a distinctive design, and illuminate your path with a light colour that mimics daylight, making night time driving easier. The optional MULTIBEAM LED headlamps with ULTRA RANGE Highbeam give an even better view of the road ahead. Thanks to their 84 individually controllable LEDs, they can adjust extremely quickly and precisely to whatever traffic you're faced with.

Digital displays, open-pore woods and distinctive SUV design details show impressive inner quality.
The 'G' in GLE stands for 'Geländewagen' – the German for an off-road vehicle – and you can see this in several details on the new GLE's interior. From the angular air vents and the solid grab handles on the centre console, to the optionally available open-pore wood trim elements, there's no doubt that you're in a car that can tackle the elements.
The two 12.3-inch flat-screen digital displays are a striking centrepiece in the GLE's Widescreen Cockpit. And the deeper you delve, the better it gets, whether you're choosing from one of the four different graphic styles, or letting the car guide you with MBUX Augmented Reality Navigation.
Upholstery and trim.
Give your GLE a distinctive look thanks to optional, exquisite two-tone nappa leather. Then combine your choice with interior trims including brushed aluminium or open-pore wood. The optional ambient lighting, with 64 colours, shows the materials off in the best possible light.
The optional Driving Assistance package Plus reduces the strain on the driver, particularly on long trips but also in urban traffic. And the new GLE – featuring the latest generation of this technology – provides help in even more situations. For example, in traffic jams and when approaching bends, roundabouts and junctions. The new GLE can now even follow the vehicle in front in stop-and-go traffic, maintaining a safe distance before automatically speeding up when the road clears.
With this option, a total of four cameras – one in the radiator grille, one at the rear, and one in each exterior mirror – show a virtual bird's-eye view of the vehicle. An enhanced side view is also possible, making it easier to see kerbs. The 360-degree camera image is shown on the multimedia display and supplemented by guide lines. This all-round view makes it much easier to manoeuvre in and out of parking spaces. Special perspectives and a zoom mode also make it simpler to hitch up and manoeuvre a trailer.
Natural voice control.
"Hey Mercedes." These two words start the intuitive voice control system, which reacts to almost every word. The system can even process indirect speech: the air conditioning will, for example, respond to "I feel cold" and increase the temperature setting. The voice control also has the ability to learn, so that it gets to know your voice and understands you better.
You can customise the entire look and feel of the Widescreen Cockpit. There is a choice of four display styles: Classic, Sport, Progressive and Subtle. Your chosen style is also reflected elsewhere if the car has the optional ambient lighting.
The optional Head-up Display transforms your windscreen into a digital cockpit so you always have a view of the key information. Because it's within your line of sight, you can concentrate on the road and the traffic conditions in front of you. The virtual image generated by the head-up display is projected into the driver's natural field of vision and looks as if it's hovering above the bonnet. In this new design, information is displayed in high-resolution and in colour.
The new GLE is the first SUV to feature the revolutionary MBUX infotainment system. It includes a voice control system and a touchscreen. And it's intelligent, as it learns more about the driver's habits and preferences on every trip.
Thanks to Augmented Reality Video, it's even easier to find your way around. The optional system merges the virtual and real worlds by overlaying graphic navigation and traffic information onto live images of your surroundings. A camera in the windscreen films the area in front of the vehicle and shows either the video or a stationary image on the media display. In addition, practical graphics, such as traffic lights, house numbers, street names or points of interest (POI), are incorporated into the image.
In rush hour, during a long drive at night or on an unfamiliar route – your new GLE makes driving noticeably easier. This is based on a concept that makes every journey in a Mercedes-Benz safer: Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive. Because the time you spend behind the wheel is your time. Time for relaxation. Time to replenish your energy.
With new engines, the GLE's acceleration is more powerful and efficient than ever. The line-up ranges from the four-cylinder diesel to silky smooth and intelligent hybrid six-cylinder engines, while at the top sits the breathtaking flagship V8.
The new four-cylinder and six-cylinder diesel engines are among the most efficient in their respective classes and meet the strictest emissions standards. They have consumption figures that are lower than almost any other luxury SUV.
The new six-cylinder and V8 petrol engines are turbocharged and also use hybrid technology for the very best in efficiency and performance. By using an integrated starter/alternator, an additional electrical compressor and a 48‑volt on-board electrical system, the GLE makes the most of its combustion engine. The integrated EQ Boost electric motor gives a power boost of up to 270 kW (367 hp) and 500 Nm of torque, allows the car to drive without using the combustion engine ('Sailing') and also acts as a generator for the 48-volt on-board electrical system.
In addition, all engines come with the 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission and 4MATIC all-wheel drive.
