Big Motoring World reviews the new Mercedes GLE Coupe, which features with both four and six-wheeled versions of the G-Class SUV in the biggest blockbuster of the year so far, Jurassic World. The film is due for release later this summer, and by then the GLE Coupe will already have been released.
The lowest-priced petrol engine is the 362bhp 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 in the 450 AMG, starting at £62,800. It's capable of 31.7mpg combined and emits 209g/km of CO2. The next rung of the ladder is the luxurious Designo Line spec, which is priced just under £10,000 more, but brings niceties such as active park assist with a 360-degree camera, soft-close doors, a panoramic sunroof, quilted leather with cooling and massaging functions and a Harmon-Kardon surround sound system.
The top-of-the-range Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 starts at £96,550 and sports a 5.5-litre twin turbo V8. It develops a whopping 577bhp and 760Nm of torque, which sees the 2.3 tonne SUV reach 62mph from a still start in 4.2 seconds. The top speed is 174mph.
A steeply raked windscreen allows for an elegant design to the front of this model, with unique front doors and a sloping roofline; the sharp bumper designs really add to the distinctive look of the car. There’s also plenty of legroom and boot space, more even than he seven-seat X5. The swoopy new model makes its big screen debut in the film, rivalling the new BMW X6. It’s on sale now, starting from £60,680.
