The new GLE comes in a mild hybrid variant with 48-volt technology and the Integrated Starter Generator of the 2nd generation.

Its 3.0-litre 6-cylinder turbo engine features increased power of 14hp to 381hp and 500Nm of torque, mated to a 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission, and the 4MATIC all-wheel drive system.

The 0-100 kph sprint is done in 5.6 seconds, compared with 5.7 seconds previously.

The AMG Line exterior also includes the diamond grille with Mercedes-Benz pattern in chrome, the AMG front apron with chrome trim element, AMG side sill panels and wheel arch cladding in the vehicle colour, as well as the AMG rear apron with diffuser-look insert.

With the MULTIBEAM LED, four light points complement the distinctive daytime running light signet.

There's a latest-generation steering wheel in nappa leather featuring capacitive sensor surfaces on the horizontal spokes.

With these touch elements on the right and left, the driver can operate the driver and central displays from the steering wheel.

The interior has chromed centre and side air vents. Previously they were edged in black, but now the slats are galvanised in real metal, as in the Mercedes-Maybach GLS.

Two USB ports delivering 100W of power are in the rear armrest.
