Mercedes’ GLE is updated with some new and improved styling and better technology. A few engine tweaks have also given the SUV better efficiency.
The new Mercedes-Benz GLE has been put through a subtle cosmetic redesign process, taking inspiration from the ML's bodywork and infusing it with more elegance and modern accents. From the restyled grille and headlights to the modified tail pipes, there's plenty of rejuvenating features to make the GLE look fresh and contemporary. The redesigned interior matches the exterior, with sleek controls, modern instruments, an infotainment display and upmarket trims. The comfortable seats provide plenty of support, with heated seats in the front and optional upgrades available, including leather upholstery and massage functions. The result is a practical and stylish SUV that looks at home both in the city and off-road.
All of the engines available with the GLE models are worth taking into consideration, though for very different reasons. The the two diesel options are more economical yet still provide enough muscle, whilst the 500e hybrid using a 3.0-litre V6 petrol with an electric motor is not surprisingly the most fuel-efficient, returning around 75mpg. At higher speeds on the motorway the new nine-speed automatic gearbox combines with the great body stability and the flexible engines to provide good performance, a smooth ride, and great fuel economy. The steering is responsive and precise, making the GLE a joy to drive through bends and corners. Mercedes-Benz cars are always equipped with a vast number of features as standard, and the new GLE is no exception. Depending on the chosen trim, drivers can expect 19in alloys, parking sensors, 8in display, climate control and heated front seats on the entry-level model, with 20in alloy wheels, air suspension, or panoramic sunroof available with a high-spec version.
The in-built safety features are impressive, from the multiple airbags and traction control to the Isofix child-seat mounting points, and the full LED headlights, which are ideal for driving at night. More competitive than its rivals, this large SUV offers good fuel economy, depending on the chosen engine.
Perfect for Families A large car that looks stylish from any angle, the new Mercedes-Benz GLA would make a great family vehicle. The safety features are extensive, the engines are varied and competitive in terms of fuel economy, whilst the cabin is spacious and comfortable, perfect for longer journeys
