Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupé OverviewThe all-new second generation W167 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupé (based on the fourth generation Mercedes-Benz GLE) is Mercedes-Benz’s second attempt at challenging the ‘founding father’ of the niche coupé SUV segment, the BMW X6. Essentially a Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupé on stilts, the new model is now larger than ever and continues to flaunt its highly desirable coupé silhouette with a dramatically slopping roofline and a fastback rear profile. The front has also been thoroughly revised, establishing itself as the more upmarket and more luxury option over the smaller Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupé.
Launched alongside the flagship Mercedes-Benz GLS SUV, the latest niche from Stuttgart is made available in the sole GLE 450 4Matic AMG Line trim in Malaysia. A stand-alone mid-range Mercedes-AMG variant, the GLE 53 4Matic+ Coupé is also available with an uprated M256 3.0 litre turbocharged straight-six engine from the GLE 450 Coupé, augmented by a 48-volt mild hybrid EQ Boost system. The car is locally assembled in Malaysia with a price tag of RM 475,501 (OTR without insurance and 0 % sales tax).
