The GLE-Class is a completely new nameplate this year—and while the sleek new GLE Coupe is an entirely new form for Mercedes-Benz, the model line itself isn’t all-new. The luxury automaker is in the midst of a comprehensive nomenclature change, and the former M-Class (or ML) is now called the GLE
With the introduction of the GLE Coupe, the GLE-Class is now more closely aligned with the X5 and X6. The GLE-Class has a revised instrument-panel design, new trims, and some new exterior details, including a front-end design that corresponds closely with the direction of other new models from the brand. Features and options have also been revamped, and a new plug-in hybrid model joins the lineup, along with finessed, high-performance Mercedes-Benz GLE (and GLE Coupe) 63 AMG and GLE63 S AMG models.
In the scope of this mid-size SUV’s trajectory, the GLE is a minor mid-cycle evolution of the existing look of the M-Class that’s been around since the 2012 model year.
In the current generation, Mercedes-Benz brought a far more refined look and feel to this rugged utility vehicle, including a wider, more road-oriented stance and somewhat more car-like look.
On the outside, the changes to the GLE-Class are most noticeable from the front, where the GLE gets more emphatic front-end styling. The new front-end appearance has a more drawn-back air dam, chunkier grille, and sculpted fenders, and it carries into all the new GLE models, not just the GLE Coupe.
The GLE-Class lineup offers some of what's familiar, as well as a step or two in a sportier and a greener direction. Meanwhile—at least for now—the new 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe is offered only in some of the highest-performance versions of the lineup.
