New Mercedes-Benz GLE - Sligo and Galway
Robust and powerful with a generous measure of Mercedes-Benz luxury, the GLE puts the comfort into adventurous drives. There’s a hybrid model on offer if you’re keen to save on trips to the fill up the fuel tank and reduce your impact on the environment.
You know the GLE can take on tough terrain just by looking at it. The immense wheels start at 19-inch through to 21-inch alloys, it’s approximate five-metre length and two-metre width means it has a powerful stance. Add to this an assertive nose that’s marked by a flat shape, a copious grille and two outsized air intakes, and you’ve got a confident, athletic car. The coupe body type has the same resilient and assertive looks but with a sloping roofline.
The LED headlights feature cornering lights, dynamic range adjustment and enhanced fog lights for a clear view in all weather conditions and on any road. You get the Mirror Package as standard which includes heating facilities to stop them fogging up when the weather is poor. Privacy glass from B-pillar backwards gives it a smart exterior and conceals your passengers or any belongings from view. Choose to add the panoramic view to make the cabin brighter and your on-road experience more dramatic.
The cabin feels smart thanks to a number of luxurious fittings and a minimalistic design. A tablet screen sits at the top of the dashboard and keeps you informed with the entertainment and driving assistance features. It’s controlled using a single touchpad that you can use when your arm is relaxing on the armrest. A memory package is optional and lets you (the driver) select your ideal seating position to sink into every time. With heating in the front seats (and in the rear on some trims), you’ll quickly warm up on cold winter days. All but the entry-level Sport trims come with ambient lighting that sets the mood for your adventure, whether that’s exhilarating or relaxing.
You can rely on the 690-litre boot (480 in the hybrid) to hold your sports gear and luggage for a weekend away. It’s electronically powered so you can open it at the touch of a button making it much easier to get items in and out if your hands are full. If you’re planning on going a long way with the car full of passengers, why not opt for the Entertainment package, which puts screens in the back of the front seats for watching films and TV programmes.
Built to take on tough terrain, the GLE has a strong performance. It has a 0.5m wading depth and is a four-wheel drive so will perform well with a quick response in poor weather conditions. Two petrol engines are on offer with the V8 being the most powerful, achieving 0-60mph in around four seconds. The V6 isn’t far behind with a 0-60mph time of approximately six seconds. If you prefer diesel, you can opt for one of two units – one of which is a powerful V6. A petrol hybrid is available if you want to reduce your CO 2 emissions. The V6 engine that’s partly powered by an electric motor also has a strong performance, going from 0-60mph in around five seconds.
