2023 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class Coupe Consumer Reviews
Perfect sporty SUV
Previously had a GLE 450 and GLC 63. The 450 was a good smooth ride and fine handling but a bit slow. The GLC 63 was a racer but had some issues with it....loose panels in back rattled and had to be re-set/taped and the ride was rather bumpy but of course it was fast. Took a test drive of the GLE53 and was quite impressed. Yeah it's a mid-size SUV but handled like a dream and had that smooth MB ride and plenty of power. The interior is spectacular. Got a red one with night package, 22" black wheels for an even smoother ride, red calipers and a red/black interior. It's not only a great rich ride but turns heads. Had a guy driving a BMW X5 ask me if he could take pics and gave me a thumbs up. Pricey like most MBs but worth the indulgence.
Overstuffed , flawed tech, clunky transmission
Seductive GLE 53 AMG Coupe interior lures the buyers. The driving experience is not at all rewarding. AMG? NOT. The transmission lags and actually clunks into a gear at slow speed in stop and go . That drives me crazy. It feels very large and truck like compared to competitors in this class like Porsche or BMW which shift, steer and ride better. The tech is so complicated and redundant that it’s maddening. The vice is the fourth and only easy way to do things while driving. Three trackpads!! None that lock so touch one and you are done. The ride is jarring in the city. You have to climb up to get in. The Burmeister is not great for rock and pales compared to my Porsche Bose. No AMG performance at all. It has a stunning interior but so lovely to dump it after 8 months due to COVID scarcity.
This is my third MB (previously owned ML 350, GLE 450), and the best so far. I was initially debating between Cayenne S and this vehicle. After testing both models, in my opinion, this is much better choice overall. Very sporty look, an amazing interior and a very powerful engine. My kids love it.
Great Crossover Semi Hybrid AMG GLE 53 Sport Coupe
Excellent Vehicle with 3.0L straight 6 cylinder AMG Engine! Love the huge moon roof. Chrome Alloys and Red Seatbelts!
I was looking for my first SUV after driving an MB CLS 550. I tried the comparable BMW and Porche Cayenne but went for the GLE 53 AMG Coupe, smooth ride great suspension, silky smooth V6. Just the right amount of sportiness and practicality, made my transition from the CLS much easier.
