Mercedes-Benz is com­bin­ing two classes of ve­hi­cles — each with its own dis­tinct style

— to make a new model, the GLE Coupe通过两种完美融合的设计风格,马赛地打造了一款全新车型——GLE运动SUV。

You may have first seen this car in the movie Juras­sic World and been im­pressed with how it bat­tled the di­nosaurs. But did you know that it looks bet­ter in real life? The sporty na­ture of a coupe dom­i­nates the new GLE Coupe, im­bued with the strik­ing char­ac­ter­is­tics of a ro­bust SUV. In ad­di­tion to con­vinc­ing on-road ve­hi­cle dy­nam­ics, with its flow­ing side con­tour, elon­gated and low green­house de­sign, strik­ing ra­di­a­tor grille with cen­tral chrome lou­vre and rear-end de­sign, the GLE Coupe cites styling fea­tures typ­i­cal of sporty Mercedes-Benz mod­els.

The GLE coupe is the new ad­di­tion to the suc­cess­ful port­fo­lio of Mercedes-Benz coupes. Along­side the clas­sic, two-door C-, E- and S-Class mod­els and the four-door CLS and CLA-Class coupes, the new coupe dis­plays a highly in­di­vid­ual in­ter­pre­ta­tion of the phys­iog­nomy and light-footed ap­proach typ­i­cal of this fam­ily of ve­hi­cles.

The GLE Coupe has a wide range of out­put, from 258hp to 367hp. In ad­di­tion to the gen­er­ous amount of stan­dard equip­ment, the Dy­namic Se­lect dy­namic han­dling con­trol sys­tem, the Sports Di­rect-Steer sys­tem and the driver as­sis­tance sys­tems typ­i­cal of the brand, the GLE Coupe also comes with the 9G-Tronic nine-speed au­to­matic trans­mis­sion and 4MATIC per­ma­nent all-wheel drive.

The GLE coupe feels like a true sports coupe right from the word go. De­spite the sim­i­lar­ity to an SUV with its raised seat­ing po­si­tion and an all-round view, oc­cu­pants are led to be­lieve that they are in sports rather than off-road mode. The sound is rem­i­nis­cent of pow­er­ful sports cars and guar­an­teed to get your pulse rac­ing.

On the other hand, it can also cre­ate a su­pe­rior feel­ing of calm. Th­ese two dif­fer­ent worlds can nor­mally only be ex­pe­ri­enced in two sep­a­rate ve­hi­cles — an ag­ile, thor­ough­bred sports coupe and an easy-go­ing com­fort­able SUV. But the new GLE Coupe is dif­fer­ent; Dy­namic Se­lect en­ables a wide spread in the driv­ing dy­namic and com­bines th­ese di­a­met­ri­cal worlds of ex­pe­ri­ence in a sin­gle ve­hi­cle.

The bal­anc­ing act has been mas­tered es­pe­cially well in the GLE 450 AMG. As the first AMG sports model, the V6 top-of-the-range GLE Coupe is an at­trac­tive en­try to the world of the sports car plus per­for­mance brand.
