Here’s a word about the interior and MBUX on the new GLE Coupé models from the press release. In theory, the GLE 450 4MATIC Coupé will perform similarly to the standard GLE 450 4MATIC we recently reviewed.


The interior of the new GLE Coupés shares numerous common features with the other models in the new premium-SUV family with a clear emphasis on the sporty aspect. The modern cockpit with two large screens in the format 12.3 inches and the strikingly shaped instrument panel, horizontally divided by a trim element tier, and seamlessly flowing into the door trim, appear familiar

The GLE Coupé offers the latest generation of the MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) infotainment system with intuitive operating structure, brilliant graphics with a high visual quality.
