The Mercedes GLE is an SUV with impressive levels of equipment and lots of space on board. The refinement levels are also high on the GLE with some very stylish design ideas too.
There's a good range of engines for the Mercedes GLE, among them the 250d should return 48 mpg and deliver a 0 to 62 mph time of 8.6 seconds. There's also the more powerful 350d which delivers a 62 mph time of seven seconds with a slight drop in fuel economy of 43 mpg and emissions of 179g/km. Potential drivers may also be interested in a petrol-hybrid model that utilises a 3.0 litre V6 petrol engine with an electric motor and this should, Mercedes say, return around 76 mpg. For those who want an SUV with high performance, the Mercedes GLE 43 AMG will reach 62 mph in 5.7 seconds thanks to its 362 bhp engine though the better performing 63 S AMG will do that sprint in just over four seconds.
The Mercedes GLE is not only a stylish and good-looking SUV it's also, unlike some of its rivals, designed to be taken off-road where it is an impressive performer. There's also plenty of space on board for five adults, plus their luggage, and while it offers a comfortable ride the option of the air suspension system is worth considering since it delivers a more cosseted ride. The GLE has a dynamic drive system so the driver can alter the vehicle’s characteristics such as firming up the suspension and sharpening the throttle response.
There's also a lots of equipment on-board including reversing camera, LED headlights and leather upholstery while the AMG models come with sports seats and body kit and the adjustable air suspension system. Opt for a top of the range Mercedes GLE then drivers will get to enjoy upgraded leather upholstery with massaging front seats, an upmarket stereo and a panoramic sunroof.
Along with its high levels of refinement, the Mercedes GLE is a well-built and solid vehicle designed to deliver on just about every level and the impressive engines deliver excellent levels of performance.
