The SUV was launched by Roland Folger, Managing Director & CEO, Mercedes-Benz India in New Delhi.


“Mercedes-Benz has a formidable SUV portfolio ranging from the GLA to the AMG G 63 in India. This gives us a strong competitive advantage, resulting in our SUV segment to grow the fastest in the entire portfolio, by 70 percent in the Jan-Sep 2015 period. The addition of the versatile GLE comes at the right time and will add to our brand’s winning SUV portfolio. To add to customer excitement, we are offering the GLE in the 250 d and 350 d variants from launch, both of which will be manufactured in our Pune facility. The start of local production of both the variants of the GLE simultaneously, is a key decision that will enable us to address the demand of the SUV in foreseeable future,” said Folger.


The GLE’s 6-cylinder engine boasts of a powerful performance. The 6-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine of the GLE 350 d with a displacement of 2987 cc produces 258 PS of power and a maximum torque of 620 Nm.

It is the world's first 9-speed automatic transmission in the luxury segment that can be used in conjunction with longitudinally mounted engines.


Key exterior design elements comprise an upright radiator trim with centrally positioned Mercedes star and two sculpted louvres. There is an accentuated front bumper with diamond grille and typical SUV chrome-look underguard, bonnet with powerdomes and LED daytime running lamps integrated in all new full LED headlamps The strikingly sculpted front wings reinforce the sense of width of the vehicle and add even more dynamism to the SUV. The rear design is accentuated by an exhaust system with tailpipe trim elements, two-piece tail lights with all lighting functions in LED, including brake lights and reversing lights in LED.


The GLE’s interior boasts of modern luxury with meticulous attention to detail that enhances the overall feeling of luxury.
