New 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE SUV

25th Sep 2018


Introduced to the public at the Paris Motor Show, the all-new Mercedes-Benz GLE offers enhanced comfort, increased interior space and features the latest in impressive state-of-the-art technology.

The new GLE will feature an improved level of standard equipment including MBUX, 12.3-inch Widescreen Cockpit, Illuminated Running Boards, Blind Spot Assist, AIRMATIC package (N/A on 300 d 4MATIC) and NAPPA Leather. You can expect all new and improved engines and the new telematics generation MBUX, as well as now being available with 7 seats (optional for 300 d 4MATIC only, standard on all other engines).

Additional equipment is available too, including the Premium and Premium Plus equipment line, All new Tech and Tech Plus Package, All New Off-Road and Towing Package and the Driver Assistance Package.


Exterior Design

Externally, the all-new Mercedes-Benz GLE is easily recognisable as an all-new model of the brand's mid-sized SUV. Prevailing and assured, the design features striking elements such as an octagonal radiator grille, showcasing the iconic three-pointed star ensures you make no mistake in identifying this as a Mercedes-Benz. 

Mid-sized within the Mercedes-Benz range, the GLE is not lacking in size and features an extended wheelbase over its predecessor, having been extended by an additional 80mm.

Thanks to the extended wheelbase, interior space has of course been enhanced with headroom receiving a further 33mm and boot space gaining an extra 125-litres - now taking the total to an impressive 825-litres. There is also the option to specify seven-seats within the Mercedes-Benz GLE too.

Practicality is just the start of the all-new Mercedes-Benz GLE interior though, as the GLE features an incredible state-of-the-art interior including the phenomenal dual 12.3-inch screens which make up the dials and infotainment controls. It now means the GLE falls in line with the set-up as seen in other Mercedes-Benz vehicles such as the all-new A-Class and of course the Mercedes-Benz S-Class - a car known for setting standards in brand-new cutting-edge vehicle technology.

Technology and Refinement

Artificial intelligence is hugely impressive in the current array of brand-new Mercedes-Benz models, and the Mercedes-Benz GLE is no exception.

This all-new GLE will learn the owner's traits and present them via the infotainment system, with examples such as recommending a person you normally call at a certain time, or suggesting to switch radio stations if this is something the driver tends to do on certain times or days.

Comfort has been raised to a whole new level too, thanks to E-ACTIVE BODY CONTROL; a state-of-the-art hydro-pneumatic suspension system that is the only system currently on the market to be able to individually control spring and damping forces - creating an ultra-comfortable ride.

Engine, Performance and Economy

Upon launch, the GLE will be offered with two engines in the form of GLE 300 d - which is a 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel offering, along with a GLE 4MATIC in-line six-cylinder petrol too. Mercedes-Benz will also offer a diesel plug-in hybrid in the future as well, complementing the car's possibilities.  

For such a large SUV, the all-new Mercedes-Benz GLE also features the best-in-class aerodynamics which will come in handy boosting the car's economy and performance - traits that a lot trickier to overcome in a car of this stature and presence.

Safety and Convenience

New advanced driver assistance and safety systems feature in the all-new Mercedes-Benz GLE.

Active Tailback Assist identifies traffic tailbacks up ahead and uses clever autonomous braking to safely slow the GLE to a safe speed, and then actively reduces driver workload in the monotony of stop/start traffic making every journey a pleasure, rather than a chore.

The all-new Mercedes-Benz GLE OTR from £55,685, is set for release in 2019. Register your interest with Stratstone Mercedes-Benz today.
