Mercedes-Benz GLE SUV, Versatility From RM486,888.00
The Mercedes-Benz GLE is a full-sized luxury SUV, which can be best described by precision, power and prestige. It offers no compromises – combining unrivalled luxury, functionality, style and performance in one strikingly designed package, presenting customers with the exclusive privilege of owning an SUV of the highest quality of luxury and refinement. The GLE offers drivers the space to lead an active lifestyle and an incomparable driving experience and road-handling abilities, with the luxury and comfort of a Mercedes-Benz.
With the AMG Line exterior, the GLE has an even more dynamic and athletic appearance, with 21-inch 5-twin-spoke AMG alloy wheels on the GLE 400 4MATIC and 20-inch 5-Spoke Alloy Wheels in the GLE 250 d 4MATIC.
The GLE provides the largest load compartment in the segment. With a generously-sized cabin and even larger luggage space, the GLE is the perfect luxury vehicle for a getaway with your family or friends. Three golf bags can be easily fitted in the boot.
Outstanding safety and a high level of driving dynamics both on the road and in terrain are among the other strengths of the premium SUV. Furthermore, the GLE impresses with ground-breaking assistance systems, the nine-speed 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission on the GLE 250 d and the innovative DYNAMIC SELECT dynamic handling control system, which offers extensive drive programmes already in basic specification. In addition, the AIRMATIC air suspension with ADS variable damping system guarantees extremely stable driving. The damping system changes its priorities depending on the preselected DYNAMIC SELECT mode. The current handling conditions are detected via a steering angle sensor, four rotation sensors, the driving speed from the ESP® signal and the brake pedal switch. The control unit uses these signals for continuous adjustment of the current damping force for each individual wheel. It sets a new benchmark for the luxury SUV category, achieving unprecedented levels of performance, style, ride comfort, safety and functionality.
The Driving Assistance Package Plus includes DISTRONIC PLUS with Steering Assist and Stop&Go Pilot, PRE-SAFE® Brake with pedestrian protection, BAS PLUS with Cross-Traffic Assist, Active Blind Spot Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist and PRE-SAFE® PLUS are available in the GLE 400 4MATIC. The Parking package with 360° camera and Active Parking Assist with PARKTRONIC, available in both models guarantees an excellent overview and problem-free manoeuvring into and out of parking spaces. Night-time vision is improved by the LED Intelligent Light System.
Rear Seat Entertainment System with DVD player provides passengers in the rear with their very own programme of entertainment. Two 20.3 cm displays and Kleer wireless headphones ensure brilliant picture and sound quality. In conjunction with COMAND Online, passengers can access the entertainment source of their choice, independently of the other passengers.
Customers will be able to choose from two dynamic and highly capable powertrains with excellent power and efficiency – a petrol-powered GLE 400 4MATIC and a diesel-powered GLE 250 d 4MATIC.
