Mercedes GLE Coupe

Designed to finally take the fight to the BMW X6, the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe adds a sporty element to one of Mercedes-Benz’s range-topping cars. In the latest advert for the car, Mercedes-Benz recruited Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton to present the clip.

The majority of the clip features Hamilton talking about his Formula One career as well as what drives him as a racing driver. When he gets behind the wheel of the car, he is understandably full of praise for the new SUV.

Set to rival the BMW X6, the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe’s design is heavily inspired by the Concept Coupe unveiled earlier in 2014. With this in mind, the car features a flowing roofline which stretches back to a steeply raked rear window and a relatively high tailgate.

The entry-level model is the Mercedes-Benz GLE350d 4Matic complete with a 258 hp and 457 lb-ft strong engine. Elsewhere is the GLE400 4Matic with a twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 with 333 hp and 354 lb-ft as well as the GLE450 AMG Coupe with 367 hp and 383 lb-ft on tap. The range-topping Mercedes-AMG GLE63 Coupe then delivers 557 hp from its twin-turbocharged 5.5-litre V8 while the GLE63 S extracts 585 hp and 760 Nm from the same engine.
