Interior

The interior layout, fit and finish

Unlike in the regular Mercedes GLE, full electric front seat and steering wheel adjustment is standard on all GLE Coupes, as is a memory function. That means it’s easy to get comfortable behind the wheel, especially with standard heated and cooled front seats (and even heated and cooled front cupholders).

The GLE Coupe also gets a 12.3in digital instrument cluster as standard. It has crystal clear graphics and can display a vast array of driving information. It’s a little trickier to customise than Audi’s Virtual Cockpit system, though, and you might find the touch-sensitive controls on the steering wheel a bit fiddly to use. 

Most of the GLE Coupe’s interior materials look and feel suitably expensive, and there’s plenty of soft-touch plastic on the dashboard. If you give the dashboard a bit of a poke and a prod, though – particularly around the climate-control panel – it doesn't exude quite the same impression of solidity as you’ll find in its Audi and BMW rivals. Still, it’s certainly not flimsy, and the difference isn’t something that would bother you on a daily basis.
