Meet the new Mercedes-Benz GLE CoupeThe 2015 Mercedes Benz GLE Coupe is a direct rival to the BMW X6.
The aim of the GLE Coupe is to combine sleek, coupe-like styling with typical SUV ability: something Mercedes has certainly achieved. Externally, the GLE is stunning and will turn heads no matter where it goes. There is no questioning that it is a big, practical car, however the styling means it looks much smaller and more stylish.
As is the case with every Mercedes, the interior of the GLE Coupe is of the highest quality. There is plenty of space in the cabin despite the stylish sloping roofline and it is finished with high-quality leather and all the latest technology. The space continues into the boot where there is plenty of room for lots of luggage and bulky items.
On the road, the GLE Coupe is a Mercedes through and through. Thanks to its standard air suspension it glides along the motorway effortlessly and even at speed it is a very agile car thanks to excellent front end grip and controlled body roll.
Making the GLE even more likeable is how reasonable the running costs are. You can get 39.2mpg whilst CO2 emissions of 187g/km mean it is very environmentally friendly for an SUV.
