LONDON: Combining a coupe with an SUV, the fans come up with a Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe. The GLE 450 AMG 4Matic Coupe will have a 362-horsepower biturbo V-6 engine, coupled with a nine-speed automatic transmission.
Despite the similarity to an SUV with its raised seating position and expansive all-round view, the occupants are led to believe that they are in sports rather than off-road mode.
Mercedes writes in introducing the GLE Couee. “The sound is reminiscent of powerful sports cars, while the spontaneous and direct response to all commands is guaranteed to get drivers pulse racing.”
The GLE gets the contouring roofline of coupe, yet all the practicality. It should be powerful, too. “The GLE 450 AMG Coupe is our first sports model, and further highly emotional and performance-oriented models will follow in the near future. The new product line from Mercedes-AMG has allowed us to make true sports car technology and the fascination of Motorsports more accessible,” says Tobias Moers, Mercedes’ chairman of the Board of management.
