The Mercedes GLE Coupé is undeniably well-equipped and looks impressively flash inside, however, there are better picks for the money. An Audi Q8 is comfier and has a better built interior, a Porsche Cayenne Coupé is more fun to drive and a BMW X6 is a better all-rounder. The plug-in hybrid 350de does make a lot of sense to company car users, though.
The trimSee full equipment
There’s only one, exceedingly well-equipped, trim level for ‘normal’ GLE Coupés. With electrically adjustable, heated and cooled front seats with memory, a massive 12.3in infotainment system including sat-nav, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, giant 22in alloy wheels, air suspension, keyless entry, adaptive LED headlights, a panoramic glass roof, ambient LED lighting, a powerful Burmester stereo and a surround view camera, it does make the GLE pricier than its closest rival, the BMW X6, though.
The engineSee full engine specs
This uses a 194bhp 2.0-litre, four-cylinder diesel engine in concert with an electric motor. The latter serves to make the 350de feel quite muscular when pulling away. It also provides a claimed electric-only range of up to 66 miles (and battery power is more than enough to keep up with urban traffic), as well as low CO2 emissions.
