What’s New?

Apart from being the newly named and updated version of the Mercedes Benz M-Class SUV, the Mercedes Benz GLE-Class features some notable changes which make it stand out from the crowd. The 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class has been contrived with some revised styling, latest command interface and additional equipment set-up. The GLE-Class has been provided a mid-cycle refresh which includes new trims, a reviewed instrument-panel design, and some latest exterior details, including a front-end design which corresponds perfectly with the direction of other fresh models from the brand.

Exterior Features

Nipped and tucked both rear and front, the improved styling and latest wheel choices assist to distance the brand new GLE-Class from the earlier M-Class. Changes are highly evident forward of a windshield, thanks to a fresh hood, new bumper, new lighting, and a new grille. Around back, brand new LED taillights flank subtle updates to the bumper and tailgate. The standard features for the GLE 300d includes 18 inch alloy wheels, LED daytime lights and taillights, adaptive suspension dampers, power folding, and auto dimming mirrors.
