Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

No one will feel cramped in the front of a Mercedes GLE Coupe – it’s a fairly wide car so there’s no chance you’ll be clashing elbows with the person sitting next to you.

In addition, there are lots of useful cubbyholes dotted about the place, along with good-sized door pockets. Rear leg room is generous, although head room isn’t the GLE Coupe’s strong point, not helped by a standard panoramic glass roof. That means a six-footer will find their head very close to the roof lining while anyone much over that might have to slouch to fit in.

On paper, the Coupe has a larger boot than its GLE SUV sibling, and there’s certainly lots of room for shopping, suitcases or anything else you can throw into it.

However, that gently sloping roofline means that taller items might not fit very easily, or at all. It's best to take a tape measure when you’re looking for some new furniture. That’s particularly true of the 350de plug-in because its big battery pack means the boot floor is higher, commandeering a substantial amount of storage space.

To help cram even more stuff in, all GLE Coupes get handy 40/20/40 split-folding rear seats – perfect for that skiing holiday with a couple of your friends.
