Mercedes-Benz GLE launched in India, priced from Rs. 58.9 lakhs
Mercedes has just launched its latest vehicle in India, the GLE-Class. Playing successor to the M-Class in our country, the GLE is offered in two different variants – 250d which is priced at Rs. 58.9 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi) and 350d which is priced at Rs. 69.9 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi). Being brought into the country via the CKD route, the luxury SUV has a lot going in its favour to become yet another successful product from the German luxury car manufacturer.
The exteriors mainly remains same as its predecessor. However, the front end is completely new, taking inspiration from the all-new S-Class luxury saloon. The headlamp cluster looks very premium with the LED setup, matching well with the twin-slat chrome grille up front. Side profile remains the same as the outgoing model. It is highlighted by aluminium grab rails and a new alloy wheel design. The rear end has been tweaked to make the SUV look fresh. The taillight cluster looks neat and is complemented by LEDs like the front lights. The bumper design is new as well featuring rectangular exhausts that have been placed at separate ends.
The interior is a very good place to be in. The SUV has a neat uncluttered dashboard design with a massive 7-inch infotainment system placed at the centre. The feature rich cabin is very premium and comes with a truck load of features including a 360-degree camera, parking assist, voice controllable infotainment unit, brake assist, hill start assist and much more. The GLE comes with a range of customisation options and the customer can personalise the interiors as per his/her desire.
Powering the new Mercedes-Benz GLE SUV are two diesel engines. The 250d is driven by a 2.1-litre, four-cylinder engine that outputs 204 PS of power and 500 Nm of torque. The 350d variant on the other hand derives power from a bigger 3.0-litre V6 turbocharged engine that generates 258 PS of power and 620 Nm of torque. The car features the world’s first 9-speed automatic gearbox, with power being sent to all four wheels through the 4MATIC all-wheel drive system.
