Mercedes-Benz GLE unveiled, India launch next year

The all-new Mercedes-Benz GLE 2019 has officially been unveiled in the UK.

Mercedes has also promised four-cylinder diesels and a plug-in hybrid version like the outgoing GLE 500e. This means that the design incorporates organic curves, rounded edges and a squat look.

These images, published by Auto Review in Russian Federation, show that the GLE adopts a much more appealing front fascia that includes a chrome front splitter, sculpted air intakes, blacked-out mesh, and an attractive grille. The front bumpers also seem to have taken on a more aggressive look. The angular headlamps and a prominent grille give the SUV more butch look while slim and sleek tail lamps extending into the tailgate add a modern touch at the rear.

Our coverage of the next-generation Mercedes GLE kicked off way back in June 2016 with the first batch of spy shots and now we can finally talk about the final version of the midsize luxury SUV without any camouflage whatsoever. India launch of the SUV is expected in the second quarter of 2019. The petrol engine can be souped-up via an EQ Boost 48-volt integrated/starter system.

All engine variants, when others come available, will use Merc's nine-speed automatic gearbox.

But does it mean we are on the verge of a coup being launched against Number 10? "Though most are unhappy with Chequers". Tory backbencher Michael Fabricant - who was at the ERG meeting - also played down the threat to Mrs May.

Other engine options in some worldwide markets include an inline six-cylinder petrol engine and a 48V motor, the same unit as seen as in the new CLS, and a 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel. A 48-volt plug-in hybrid version is also set to be in the works, paired with the six-cylinder versions. The first AMG model will be the GLE 53 which will be powered by 3.0-litre twin-turbo motor.

Among the 40-or-so new functions, including various off-road displays and an extended range of apps, the multimedia system gains a new "Interior Assist" predictive function that was created to support operating intentions by recognising hand and arm movements and even noticing whether the driver or front passenger is making them. The brand says it is the "only system in the market where the spring and damping forces can be individually controlled at each wheel". This allows the vehicle to counteract body roll as well as pitching and squat. The 4Matic all-wheel drive system splits the torque at a fixed 50:50 pattern in the future four-cylinder engines, while the new 450 allows for up to 100% of the torque to be sent fore or aft. An optional off-roading package gives the auto a transfer case for the all0-wheel drive system. The GLE's suite of driver assistance systems includes the ability to accelerate, brake and steer itself on the motorway, as well as recognising and adapting to queues or tailbacks. A new system which recognises tailbacks and slows the auto down in time will be available first here.

The all-new Mercedes-Benz GLE might be instantly recognisable, albeit more smoothly sculpted and thoroughly modernised in its overall appearance, and yet the SUV has undergone something of a technological revolution beneath the skin, including further-enhanced MBUX "artificial intelligence" cabin tech and trick new suspension adapted from the S-Class.

For the bigger GLE, the system comes with two large 12.3-inch (31.2) cm screens as standard, arranged one next to the other. A unique feature of MBUX is its AI-enabled learning capacity.
