Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupé Now From RM630,888.00
The GLE Coupé is the Sports Utility Coupé from Mercedes-Benz. Its striking and exciting design with an aggressive appearance combines the athletic characteristics of a SUV with the sporty nature of a coupé resulting in a vehicle that is intense, beautiful and full of passion.
Intense, beautiful, and full of passion, the GLE Coupe comes with a priceless and commanding presence. The GLE Coupé not only skilfully embodies the firmly embedded principles of Mercedes-Benz design, but also focuses on the essential features of two entirely different automobile genres.
On the one hand, the youngest member of the GLE family bears the decisive, essential stylistic feature of all modern Mercedes-Benz coupés: it combines sheer sportiness with a high-level aesthetic and sensual demand for modern luxury. At the same time, however, elements of the classic SUV are recognisable. With muscular wings, large wheel arches, tyres of up to 22 inches, and also the high belt line and the generous ground clearance, this model takes the perception of a large, four-door coupé to the next level.
The extreme proportions with superior aesthetics of the new GLE Coupé have emerged from this stylistic gene pool. This is particularly due to the extremely exciting relationship between the low greenhouse and striking body; the silhouette signals dynamism and agility. The upright sports grille with single louvre, framed by three-dimensionally designed LED Intelligent headlamps, is the major feature of the front end with its short, stylish overhang.
The balancing act between being extremely sporty yet comfortable has been mastered especially well in the GLE 450 AMG. As the first AMG sports model, GLE Coupé enables an attractive entry to the world of the sports car and performance brand. The performance-enhanced V6 biturbo engine with an output of 270 kW (367 hp) and 520 Nm from 1400 rpm delivers performance akin to a sports car. The DYNAMIC SELECT transmission mode Sport+ is always available in the top-of-the-range model.
Its sporty AMG exterior design including exhaust system with AMG tailpipe trim elements with centrepiece and 22-inch 5 Twin-spoke AMG Alloy Wheels is sure to give you the adrenaline rush every time you get behind the wheels.
