We’d been hotly anticipating the Mercedes GLE Coupé quite some time and for a number of reasons at Mercedes-Benz Hertfordshire. Not least because its unique blend of SUV characteristics with coupé dynamism and performance presents its very own contradictory nature but in doing so dispels many a myth about what can be achieved in automotive design.
It goes without saying that the sensational boundaries of this vehicle know no limits. Our teams first experienced the GLE coupé on the road in every situation, trim level and engine variant during the Mercedes-Benz World Training 2015 event held in and around Lisbon, Portugal. The vehicle never seizes to surprise in every aspect of its own potential, fulfilling the promise set out in its blueprint.
The spacious rear seat variations, comfort options, quality and engine variants exceed its market rivals. Likewise, the available as well as standard options on each model line coming to the UK offer far superior comfort features than the comparatively priced competitors. That’s not to say the looks and driving performance isn’t enough to propel this premium luxury SUV to front of its class.
It’s not just the luxury and comfort which takes this leader a step ahead, the GLE Coupé offers so much more in the experience of driving than many others. For its size the Mercedes GLE Coupé shows how a car can challenge a contradiction in terms to produce exceptional driving dynamics, practicality and style in a uniquely satisfying way. Take to the road in a GLE Coupé and you immediately enjoy its presence on the road, the comfort which it provides but also how it melts seamlessly into every curve in the road, firing you into the next with a grace and speed of something far sportier in DNA.
