2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class Coupe video
2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe First Drive
NOTE: This video is about the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class Coupe, but since the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class Coupe is part of the same generation, our earlier analysis still applies.
Our experts like the GLE-Class Coupe models:
- Surround View System
- Displays a top-down, 360-degree view of the GLE Coupe in the central display screen, making it much easier to park.
- Active Brake Assist
- Scans the area ahead and warns you about potential front collisions. Can automatically apply the brakes as well.
- Detects imminent collisions or rollovers and tightens the front seat belts, adjusts the front passenger seat, and closes all windows.
Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class Coupe vs. the competition
2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class Coupe
2019 BMW X6
Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class Coupe vs. BMW X6
The BMW X6 laid the foundation for the sporty, coupe-like subset of SUVs back in 2008. The current second-generation X6 has evolved in the years since, delivering strong performance combined with a high level of comfort. Like the last-generation X6 and the GLE Coupe, the sloping roofline cuts into rear passenger and cargo space. The X6 is a little more expensive than the GLE 43, but it has quite a bit more power in return.
Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class Coupe vs. Audi Q8
The Audi Q8 is the latest challenger to the GLE Coupe, representing a sportier alternative to the more sensible and conventional Q7. The Q8 doesn't have as much power as the GLE 43 but should return a similar performance. Unlike the GLE Coupe and other fastback SUVs, the Q8 doesn't make as many sacrifices to rear-seat space and cargo capacity. On the downside, Audi's new infotainment system can be somewhat distracting.
Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class Coupe vs. Porsche Cayenne
The venerable Porsche Cayenne has been fully redesigned for 2019, maintaining its performance and quality. As with almost any Porsche, it costs a bit more than competitors (especially if you dive into the options list) but gives you a good wallop of performance in return. The Cayenne's roofline isn't nearly as dramatic as the coupe-like SUV's, gaining an advantage for rear passenger and cargo space.
