Full specifications


Despite its coupe-esque profile, the GLE Coupe is still an SUV with a spacious cabin that has enough room for five adults. The rear is slightly compromised by the sloping roof, but that's only really an issue for passengers over six-foot.

The high-quality interior has a solid feel to it and is dominated by a high-mounted eight-inch colour screen that's controlled via a hefty metal-rimmed dial on the centre console. The infotainment system isn't the most modern-looking but it's fairly intuitive and the navigation is quick to route.

One some of the rather dated stereo buttons and and air conditioning controls let the GLE Coupe down and are at odds with the rest of the modern interior. However, the driving position is excellent with lots of adjustment in the steering column and seat, so you'll get comfortable whatever your size.

The 650-litre boot is only around 40 litres less than a standard GLE and the rear seats fold down to create a big load area. That said the standard boot is deep enough for everyday use, although the sheer height of the GLE Coupe means it can be hard to lift heavy things - like pushchairs - up into it.

Navigation, leather seats with electronic controls, dual zone climate control and a powered tailgate are all standard, along with rear privacy glass and ambient lighting. The GLE Coupe also gets plenty of safety kit, which includes crosswind assist to help maintain the car's balance in high winds.
