The Mercedes GLE Coupe is a luxury SUV Coupe that revels in its role as an opinion divider. Jonathan Crouch reports on the second generation model.
The Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe is the three-pointed star's take on BMW's X6, a large luxury crossover that rides on SUV underpinnings but which features a coupe-like sloping roof. Whether you like this genre of car or not, it's hard not to be impressed by Mercedes' execution of the theme. It's a sportier, more stylish coupe-styled version of the GLE-Class five-door model and gains an added dash of maturity in this second generation form.
If something works, then you should first copy it, then improve upon it. Take the rather curious, contradictory idea of a luxury SUV Coupe. BMW introduced it with their X6 model in 2007 and sold so many that Mercedes couldn't help noticing the need for something similar, hence the introduction of the first generation GLE Coupe in 2014, then followed by the announcement of this second generation version five years later. If you'd like a sportscar but need a large SUV and want something that's fashion-conscious and stylish, this Mercedes aims to satisfy. It's certainly an arresting thing to look at, as extrovert, powerful and in-your-face as a car of this kind needs to be. Yet there is perhaps a dash of maturity here too that the rival BMW X6 maybe doesn't quite have. Enough to also perfectly position this GLE Coupe against upper-spec versions of other sportier contenders in the luxury SUV segment like Jaguar's F-PACE and Maserati's Levante.
There are two main GLE engine options to begin with and most buyers are likely to choose the base diesel derivative, a 400d 4MATIC variant that features a six cylinder diesel engine, which produces 330hp. If petrol power is of more interest, there's an alternative Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 4MATIC+ Coupe model with a stonking 435hp. This unit's enhanced by the Mercedes EQ Boost mild hybrid system, which uses a 48-volt onboard network with a belt-driven starter/alternator - the system adds 22hp to the car's overall output. This AMG '53' version can sprint from 0 to 62mph in just 5.3 seconds and has a top speed of 155mph. In all variants, power is transmitted via 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission. The broad ratio spread of gears allows for a clearly perceptible reduction in engine speed. Ride comfort and agility improvements are promised by the optional 48V E-ACTIVE BODY CONTROL suspension, which is combined with the optional AIRMATIC air suspension. This is the only system in the market where the spring and damping forces can be individually controlled at each wheel. This means that it not only counteracts body roll, but also pitching and squat.
This second generation GLE Coupe is significantly bigger than its predecessor, 39mm longer and 7mm wider. The wheelbase is 20mm longer too, but remains 60mm shorter than that of the ordinary GLE so as to preserve this sportier variant's coupe-like appearance. Something further emphasised by the flatter-angled windscreen, rear-sloping roof line and large, flush wheels available at sizes ranging between 19 and 21-inches. Broad, muscular C-pillars deliver what Mercedes calls a 'ready-to-pounce' look. Inside, much of the fascia architecture is familiar from the ordinary GLE, but the coupe feel is emphasised by a high centre console, sports seats and a grippy sports steering wheel with nappa leather trim. Other than that, the first thing you'll probably notice at the front is that the designers have incorporated a couple of 12.3-inch TFT screens, one in the instrument binnacle and one in the centre of the dash that works with the new 'MBUX' voice-activated multimedia system. There are more interior stowage spaces this time round and better all-round vision. The rear seat is more spacious that the swept-back lines would suggest. And there's a bigger 655-litre boot, extendable to 1,790-litres once you fold the 40:20:40-split rear bench.
The GLE 400d version comes only in a single very well equipped 'AMG Line Premium Plus' guise priced at around £72,500. The Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 version also enjoys 'Premium Plus' trim and costs around £80,000. As you'd expect, GLE Coupe pricing is comparable to that of the third generation BMW X6 but Mercedes hopes to gain an advantage when it comes to technology. Both GLE Coupe models get the company's latest 'MBUX' multimedia system with 'Hey Mercedes' voice activation. Plus there a 12.3-inch widescreen virtual instrument binnacle display and a further 12.3-inch touchscreen centre-dash infotainment monitor. Other standard kit runs to blind spot assist, AMG alloy wheels, illuminated grab handles, illuminated running boards, LED headlights with active high beam assist and privacy glass. Inside, there are supportive heated sports seats and a mirror package including automatic dimming for the driver's exterior mirror and the rear-view mirror, plus logo projection onto the ground when you open the door at night. You also get a parking package including active parking assist, automatic two-zone climate control and traffic sign assist. Many customers will want to pay extra for AIRMATIC air suspension; or more for the 'E-ACTIVE BODY CONTROL' suspension package that combines with the air spring set-up and individually controls spring and damping forces at each wheel. A long list of camera-driven safety features are now included, including 'Active Steering Assist' and 'Active Distance Assist', plus an 'Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC' feature that gives a degree of autonomous driving.
From the main 400d diesel variant, you can expect a combined cycle showing of 38.7mpg on the WLTP combined cycle and a CO2 reading of just 193g/km [NEDC]. The GLE 53 delivers up to 30.4 combined mpg and emits 212g/km of CO2. What else? Well, we'll tell you that the comprehensive three year warranty is built upon by Mercedes' Mobilo scheme which delivers breakdown cover for up to thirty years, as long as you continue to have your car serviced at a Mercedes main dealer. And it's worth knowing that your maintenance outlay can be kept a little in check by going for the optional Service Care package that takes care of routine maintenance, spreading the cost of regular servicing, guaranteeing the price of parts and labour for up to four services and covering the cost of all recommended service items such as brake fluid, spark plugs, air filters, fuel filters and screen wash. There's also an ASSYST dashboard service indicator that monitors engine use and tells you exactly when a garage visit is due. It's also worth mentioning that the 'Mercedes me' remote online services package that comes as part of the infotainment system includes remote self-diagnostic capability, enabling your GLE to monitor wear and tear items and alert your local dealer to let you know if something needs seeing to.
This is the kind of car that evokes howls of self-righteous indignation from the motoring press. They'll criticise its weight, its looks and its politically incorrect attitude. Before, of course, going on to fawn over some enormous luxury limousine or thirsty, dirty supercar. It's all very hypocritical. If you don't like this car, then fair enough. But don't moralise about it. True, if you're a business buyer, your CEO might still raise an amused eyebrow, but if you're the kind of very individual customer who'll want one of these, then you probably won't mind that for you'll be someone who shares the confidence that's apparent in every aspect of this model's make-up. In years to come, when considering this market segment, we might well forget who got there first and who tagged along. Who knows, we might even forget about SUV-coupes. In the here and now though, here's one of the very finest.
By Jonathan Crouch
The Mercedes GLE, launched in 2015, is a large luxury SUV that had a more dynamic look and feel than its M-Class predecessor. Beautifully made and quietly capable, it kept its brand at the forefront of this segment. If you only need five seats from a car of this kind and want a prestigiously badged great all-rounder, it's a strong contender.
5dr SUV (2.1 diesel, 3.0 V6 diesel, 3.0 V6 petrol, 3.0 V6 petrol hybrid, 5.5 V8 petrol)
The old M-Class this GLE is based upon was for nearly two decades the world's most popular luxury 4x4, with over 1.5 million examples sold as it paved a path that other plush SUVs like BMW's X5 and Porsche's Cayenne would quickly follow. Rivals like these offered buyers a more dynamic interpretation of what a vehicle of this kind could be, but Mercedes fought back with the lighter, more agile third generation M-class design launched in 2012, the car that formed the basis for this GLE model. The change of name brought this car into line with other products in the Mercedes SUV range. In its era, it sat at the heart of the large section of this segment, just above the more compact Audi Q5 or BMW X3-sized Mercedes GLC model. And just below the Range Rover-sized Mercedes GLS. Only five seats were offered. Back in 2015, the brand bridled at accusations that this was merely a lightly facelifted version of that old MK3 model M-Class - and with some justification. After all, as well as smarter looks, this GLE got a completely fresh 9-speed auto gearbox and a clever 'DYNAMIC SELECT' handling control system. Under the bonnet, all the engines were significantly more efficient and there was the option of clever Plug-in petrol/electric hybrid technology for the first time, plus much improved safety provision and impressive levels of media connectivity. There was even an additional and complete separate sporty 'GLE Coupe' bodystyle. Here though, we're going to be concentrating on the standard GLE body shape which sold until early 2019, when it was replaced by a new generation model.
This GLE is certainly a more purposeful-looking thing than its M-Class predecessor - and needed to be. If you're not going to provide seven-seat practicality in a luxury SUV of this sort, then you need it to have dynamic looks and a menacing overtaking presence instead, something that in truth, previous M-Class models never really had. Fortunately though for Mercedes, this GLE looked a lot sharper.. First impressions are of a sportier, more dynamic car, both when first you see it from the front and when you take a seat behind the wheel. In place of the dull, conventional family-orientated layout of the old M-Class, you're sat more purposefully in front of a sportier three-spoke leather-stitched wheel. Through it, you glimpse a pair of more deeply-cowled dials separated by the colour multi-information display that Mercedes uses on most of its other models. No, you don't get the exquisite attention to detail you'd get in an S-Class, but specified correctly, it can feel very high end indeed. In the rear, you'll find a cabin with ample head and legroom that'll certainly feel luxurious enough for a couple of adults, even if they're six-footers. Out back, one of the advantages this car holds over its BMW X5 arch-rival from this era is that it offers you 40-litres more boot space, the 690-litre total proving to be class-leading from this period.

The GLE's air suspension system can suffer expensive problems. If you're looking at a car with the system fitted, it pays to make sure it rides smoothly, with no untoward harshness over bumps, and that you can feel the ride comfort change when you're on the move when you switch between Comfort and Sport modes. Also be wary of any suspension-related warning messages on the dashboard, such as 'Please wait, car is rising', which might come up when you start the car. These could point to leaks, which will take a bit of time to sort and could lead to a costly burnt-out compressor. Otherwise, you'll want to check that all the electrics function, the sat-nav does its job properly and there are no concerning warning lights on the dashboard. Few cars will have been used off road, but check the underside just in case. And look out for the usual scratched alloy wheels and signs of back seat child abuse. Obviously insist on a fully stamped-up service history.
(approx based on a 2015 G350d - Ex Vat) An air filter is around £30-£40. An oil filter costs in the £7 to £8 bracket. Front brake pads sit in the £63 bracket for a set, while rear brake pads cost around £25-£69 for a set. Front brake discs are around £213. Rear brake discs can cost around £134. A thermostat is around £55. A timing chain kit is in the £120-£180 bracket. A wiper blade is in the £10-£19 bracket.
On the road, you'll find that Mercedes usefully embellished the package offered by the old third generation M-Class SUV this GLE is based upon. So mainstream models get a sophisticated nine-speed automatic gearbox. And across the range, there's a new 'DYNAMIC SELECT' vehicle dynamics system so you can set the car up to suit the way you want to drive. As with the previous M-Class model, there's a permanent '4MATIC' 4WD system and most GLE variants got supple AIRMATIC suspension. This can be tweaked through the 'Sport', 'Comfort' and 'Slippery' settings of the 'DYNAMIC SELECT' package, a set-up that at the same time will alter steering feel, throttle response and gearshift timings. You'll get more from these various modes if you get a car whose original owner paid the extra for the 'ACTIVE CURVE' roll stabilisation system that improves the ride and reduces body roll. Under the bonnet, the mainstream diesel engines were carried over from that old M-Class model. There's a four cylinder 2.1-litre 204bhp unit in a base GLE 250d variant frugal enough to return 49.5mpg on the combined cycle and 155g/km of CO2. Alternatively, the GLE 350d derivative offers 258bhp from its 3.0-litre diesel V6. There's a 3.0-litre petrol V6 on offer too. It develops 367bhp in the GLE 450 AMG, or alternatively, you can get it mated to an electric motor in a clever GLE 500e plug-in hybrid variant that puts out a combined 442bhp system output. At the top of the range, there's a Mercedes-AMG 63S high performance V8 petrol model with 585bhp. That's not a car you'd want to take off road but a mainstream diesel GLE variant should actually be quite happy on the mud, especially if you get a car whose original owner specified the optional 'Off-Road package' that provides a low range gearbox, a centre differential lock, an extra Off-road +' mode and various extra ride height settings.
And overall? Well it's true that there are sportier, more dynamic models of this kind you could buy. But we're struggling to think of many that offer a better all-round package from this era. Find a car that was specified for off road use and it'll deliver mud-plugging prowess expert enough to suit any right-minded user. Yet with AIRMATIC suspension fitted, it can ride like a Rolls Royce. Quick, capable, practical and luxurious, this is at last the car Mercedes always should have had in this segment.
