Mercedes-Benz GLE63 AMG Coupe set to take on the BMW X6M


Last week we brought you news on the all-new Mercedes-Benz GLE, the replacement for the successful M-Class model. There is another GLE badged Mercedes however this one is a coupe. Mercedes-Benz has targeted the BMW X6 with the GLE Coupe. We have details here.

The new GLE63 Coupé combines the sportiness of a coupé with the strengths of an SUV. High agility, distinctive engine sound and typical sports car acceleration are united with poise and assurance, tremendous pulling power and perfect traction.

The wide choice of different worlds of experience is based, among other things, on the DYNAMIC SELECT transmission modes, which for the first time permit such a wide spread of driving dynamics.

As another exciting interpretation of a four-door coupé, the commanding SUV meets the highest of standards in terms of performance, design and comfort. The powerful heart of the vehicle - the AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine - beats even faster in the new Mercedes-AMG GLE63 Coupé. In addition to the variant generating 410kW, there is also a highly sporty S‑Model to choose from which is rated at 430kW.

The GLE63 Coupé displays visual dominance with its "A-wing". This design feature in the form of the stylised "A", a hallmark of AMG, is three-dimensional and also serves as an air guide for the three air openings. Flared wheel arches in black make for a systematic continuation of the visual dominance along the sides.

The perfect prerequisites for a highly dynamic on-road driving experience comes courtesy of the suspension, which has been systematically designed to deliver sporty performance. The high-performance SUV coupé comes with the AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension with active roll stabilisation ACTIVE CURVE SYSTEM and the Sports Direct-Steer system. The 4Matic all-wheel drive with rear-biased power distribution and the DYNAMIC SELECT transmission modes promise to deliver what distinguishes every AMG vehicle: driving performance.

We are not sure as to when the GLE-Coupe will arrive in South Africa but we are hoping that it will be soon. Keep an eye on our Twitter and Facebook pages for more details.
