24 Nov 2020 | Local News : Singapore

The Mercedes-Benz GLE450 4MATIC Coupe and the Mercedes-AMG GLE53 4MATIC+ Coupe have been launched in Singapore. Both cars are a further example of the Mercedes-Benz strategy to address all the requirements of customers in the premium-SUV segment.

The Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe sports a striking design and aggressive appearance. It combines the athletic characteristics of an SUV with the sporty nature of a coupe resulting in a vehicle that is intense, beautiful and full of passion. The GLE Coupe comes with a priceless and commanding presence.

The GLE53 4MATIC+ has the distinctive Panamericana grill that is used on all AMG models
It not only skilfully embodies the principles of Mercedes-Benz design but also focuses on the essential features of two entirely different automobile genes.

The new GLE Coupe is 4,939mm long and 2,010mm wide, with the proportions emphasising the dynamics of the GLE Coupe.

The front view combines characteristics of the Mercedes-Benz SUV family with clear coupe attributes. The diamond grille with its single horizontal louvre creates association with the other Mercedes-Benz Coupes, while the openings in the louvre and the high-gloss chrome-plated underguard in the front apron showcase the SUV character.

With the AMG Line, the grille widens towards the bottom in an A shape, and the pins in the diamond grille are finished in chrome. The headlamps feature full-LED technology as standard. The windscreen is more raked than on the GLE SUV and gives it a more dynamic look, making a a better fit with the dropping roof line.

The classic colour combination of red and black is an interior colour that is exclusive to the GLE Coupe
The flank, with its smooth design that emphasises surfaces, effectively highlights the large flush-mounted wheels, which come in sizes of 20 to 22 inches. The black cladding of the wheel wells and the illuminated running board between them underscore the SUV character.

The dynamism of the coupe line is especially evident in the rear-end design. A broad muscle in the vehicle flank beneath the C-pillar that starts in the rear door and envelops the tail lamps gives the GLE Coupe its powerful, ready-to-pounce appearance.

Together with the elongated tail lamps, the width of the GLE Coupe is rather emphasised. These taillights are specific to the coupe, but fit the Mercedes SUV characteristic with their hallmark rounded blocks in a slim outline.

The flush transition from the tailgate to the bumper, the number plate in the bumper above the high-gloss chrome-plated underguard and the integrated tailpipe trim elements complete the synthesis of coupe and SUV.

While both cars have turbocharged 3.0-litre engines, the GLE450 has 362bhp, while the GLE53 has 429bhp, paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission
The interior of the new GLE Coupe shares numerous features with the other models in the new premium-SUV family and clearly emphasises the sporty aspect. A familiar sight is the modern cockpit with two large 12.3-inch screens.

Although the wheelbase is 60mm shorter than on the GLE SUV, it is 20mm longer than in the previous coupe, and this extra space benefits the seating and legroom of the passengers. The entrance opening has even been enlarged by 35mm. The capacity of the stowage spaces in the interior has grown to a total of 655-litres.

The GLE Coupe offers the latest generation of the MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) infotainment system with a host of functions for connectivity, entertainment and operating comfort. They include the intuitive voice control and the learning capability of MBUX as well as a large range of apps that can be integrated into or controlled with MBUX.

The information in the instrument cluster and on the media display is easily legible on the large, high-resolution screens. An emotive presentation with brilliant graphics underlines the comprehensibility of the intuitive control structure, with the learning MBUX also able to be voice-controlled.

The GLE Coupe comes with Mercedes me connect, the latest connectivity that helps owners to stay connected with their vehicles via an app
The GLE Coupe is now equipped with Mercedes me connect, the newest generation of connectivity that helps Mercedes-Benz owners to stay connected and in sync with their vehicles.

The connected car service was conceptualised to make the lives of Mercedes-Benz owners easier and more at ease, whether it is unlocking their car, starting the engine remotely, getting customer support or simply checking their fuel level by remote means.

As standard, the new GLE Coupe comes with a further advanced air suspension system AIRMATIC and has a sportier set-up than in the GLE SUV. Its adaptive adjustable damping uses highly complex sensor systems and algorithms to adapt the damping characteristics to the road condition and driving situation in real time.

In addition, the air suspension keeps the vehicle at the same level irrespective of the load and can also adjust the ground clearance - automatically or at the touch of a button depending on the driving speed and the situation.

The AIRMATIC system uses adaptive adjustable damping to adapt the damping characteristics to current road conditions and driving situations
A further improvement is offered by the optional E-ACTIVE BODY CONTROL suspension, which is combined with the AIRMATIC air suspension system. This is the only system on the market that can control spring and damping forces individually at each wheel. This means that it not only counteracts body roll, but also pitch and squat movements.

The hydraulics generate dynamic forces that overlay the air suspension forces and actively support and dampen the vehicle body, e.g. during longitudinal and lateral acceleration or when driving on uneven roads. even better support in all situations.

The new GLE Coupe has the latest generation of Mercedes-Benz driving assistance systems giving cooperative support to drivers. This results in an especially high level of active safety. As standard, the new GLE Coupe boasts Active Brake Assist, which can help prevent rear-end collisions and collisions with crossing pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles.

The new GLE Coupe is available in two variants, the GLE450 4MATIC Coupe and the Mercedes-AMG GLE53 4MATIC+ Coupe. Both are equipped with EQ Boost, providing an additional 21bhp and 250Nm of torque when needed.

The GLE Coupe comes with the latest generation MBUX system, with two 12.3-inch screens for the instrument cluster and infotainment display
The Mercedes-Benz GLE450 Coupe is powered by the 3.0-litre turbocharged six-cylinder in-line engine with a 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission. It produces 362bhp and 500Nm of torque, accelerating from zero to 100km/h in 5.7 seconds.

In the Mercedes-AMG GLE53 Coupe, the turbocharged 6-cylinder in-line engine generates 429bhp and 520Nm of torque, accelerating from zero to 100 km/h in 5.3 seconds. It guarantees hallmark AMG driving experience in combination with the AMG SPEEDSHIFT TCT 9G 9-speed automatic transmission and AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive.
