Mercedes-Benz has decided to release its new GLE coupe vehicle, despite the fact that it has been a terrible period for the sports coupe brand. The coupe inspired SUV has taken a slump in popularity in recent years, but it’s the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe that is tipped to bring it back. The GLE from Mercedes-Benz offers much more than a regular SUV does and is something to look out for this year.
People are reluctant to call it a coupe as it is more an SUV than a coupe. It has four doors and a sleek fast break profile with the addition of the engine specs which could be measured with a sports vehicle. It also includes two rows of seating which can fit up to five people at once.
All in all, the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe brings a dynamic new perspective in style which will shift the coupe tradition of Mercedes-Benz vehicle and launch it for the future.
2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe Exterior
What Mercedes-Benz decided to do for the look of the GLE model is to make take the basis off of the BMW X6 model.

The new look of the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe includes standard full LED lights system with AMG styling enhancements. The AMG add-ons are particularly noticed in the front but the back has also been revised as well. the new grille is also noticeable which has been revised and redesigned and is much bigger than before, giving the car a sportier look upfront.
The vehicle is strapped with the new 21-inch wheel which are made of a much lighter alloy. The front tires come in standard 275/45R/21, while the back ones come with supercar-wide 315/40R/21. But there is also an option of choosing a bigger set of wheels as well, with the 22-inch ones.
2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe Interior
The interior of the car hasn’t been drastically changed and has been made to keep a sports style look inside. We can compare it with the ML-Class vehicle with whom it bears a lot of resemblance. But all in all, the aim was to keep the inside of the car similar as the outside, keeping it a sports-like attitude inside as well for the outside.
The most noticeable thing are the wood and aluminum highlights of the inside, there is also a carbon fiber option available as well. The dashboard includes some technological upgrades like a 8-inch information display matted on the center console. The peculiar thing is that it is not only integrated inside on the dashboard, but sort of floats above it which is an interesting new look, giving it a modern feeling of the interior of the car.
The 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe has also 58 cubic feet of maximum cargo room, which is more than needed for most people. It also has enough room inside for the passengers to feel comfy and relaxed while driving.
