Introduction

What Car? says...

The Mercedes GLE Coupe is one of an increasing number of luxury SUVs that sacrifice a bit of functionality for a sleeker form. Rather than a squared-off tail that prioritises rear head room and boot space, it has a roofline tapering towards the rear of the car, giving it a more delicate silhouette.

It’s quite a transformation over the standard GLE SUV, with Mercedes lopping 77mm off the regular car’s roof height and 60mm from the wheelbase – the latter change also intended to make the Coupe feel a bit more agile in the bends. Unsurprisingly, there’s no seven-seat option and boot capacity in the GLE Coupe is less than you get with the sensible sibling it was based on.
