A lot of us must have wondered which Mercedes was showcased in the 2015 Jurassic World. Well, here it is. None other than the Mercedes Benz GLE Coupe. This mean machine is being launched in India on 12th January 2016 and will hit the roads soon after.
In the global market’s Mercedes offers the GLE AMG Coupe in two trims – the GLE 450 AMG and the more powerful, AMG GLE63 S Coupe. It is the former that is set to be launched in India next month that too via the CBU route.
The Mercedes GLE 450 Coupe is an aggressive looking mean machine. With its AMG body styling and its alluring interiors, which is more than enough to tell you that it is built to offer the best of both an SUV and a Sedan. At the front you have the massive grill with a large Three-Pointed Star at the centre along with a neat pair of headlamps with projector units and DRLs.
The muscular bumper houses the huge air dam along with large air inlet on both sides and a silver skid plate below. The large squarish wheel arches houses a set of 21-inch AMG twin 5-spoke alloys and an option two more 22-inch multi-spoke wheels. Inside the GLE AMG Coupe comes with a luxuriously crafted cabin, which is draped in premium quality materials and Nappa leather multi-functional steering wheel.
The Mercedes-Benz GLE AMG 450 Coupe comes with AMG-enhanced 3.0-litre bi-turbo V-6 engine that offers instant response and decent fuel economy. The engine produces a maximum power of 362bhp and a peak torque of 520 Nm. The engine comes mated to a 9-speed automatic gearbox that offers greater range of ratios and shorter steps between gears.
