This is the all-new Mercedes-AMG GLE53 Coupe 4MATIC+ Premium Plus. A colossal and full-figured performance car that makes for a head-turning statement on the road. This new coupe version is more attractive than its bulgy forerunner.
The new Mercedes-AMG Coupe gains impressive standard gears that include the AMG bodystyling. Also part of its upgrades are the MULTIBEAM LED headlamps, the massive 22-inch AMG alloy wheels, and AMG styling items.
The roofline of the GLE53 cuts a more streamlined profile and leads you toward its stylish rear design. This popular spot of coupe vehicles highlights the powered tailgate that can be accessed by just tilting the Mercedes-Benz badge. The twin-tailpipe and chrome-plated switchable performance exhaust system below also adds to the theatre.
With a 3.0-litre straight-six engine, the Mercedes-AMG GLE53 Coupe 4MATIC+ Premium Plus carries the future of performance petrol engines. 435 horsepower and 530 Nm of torque are channelled to all four wheels through the AMG SPEEDSHIFT TCT 9G automatic gearbox.
Its smooth and intuitive performance results in 5.3 seconds acceleration from zero to 100 km/h and with a top speed of 250 km/h. It’s a pretty fast SUV but can still speed up with the integrated EQ Boost. As a result, the Mercedes-AMG GLE53 Coupe 4MATIC+ Premium Plus gains an additional 22 horsepower and 250 Nm of torque.
Once you look past this new GLE53’s uncompromising exterior, its tech-heavy interior is also something to behold. The extravagant housing of the ARTICO leather-covered dashboard houses a 12.3-inch widescreen cockpit display and an AMG instrument cluster with a large multi-function display.
The quality of its interior is wide-ranging with the 64 colours ambient lightings, Burmester surround sound system, and THERMOTRONIC automatic climate control system. When it comes to connectivity and convenience, the 4-spoke AMG Performance steering wheel is a favourite pick for the driver and the climatized and heated front seats for the front passenger.
The touch-control buttons on the steering wheel and the touchpad on the centre console provide a more flexible way for the driver to access the car settings. Driving this GLE53 Coupe is never a bore with the new MBUX multimedia system, complete with the Smartphone integration that connects your device via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a wireless charging pad.
The Mercedes-AMG GLE53 Coupe 4MATIC+ Premium Plus is also equipped with a ton of safety packages such as the Driving Assistance package, ATTENTION ASSIST, Blind Spot Assist, and Four-Wheel Electronic Traction System (4ETS).
A pure muscle all-terrain beast for both on and off-road journeys, the new Mercedes-AMG GLE53 Coupe 4MATIC+ Premium Plus shares many values with a sports car while also highly convincing with its quality comfort and cutting-edge tech features. To that end, I bet no one would criticize you for driving a weird-looking car anymore.
