Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class Seats

Mercedes-AMG says much of this five-seat SUV's extra 39mm of body length (compared to its predecessor) has gone into the rear passenger space, and this seems true when it comes to legroom. You definitely notice the decline of the C-Pillar, though, making an otherwise large space feel slightly claustrophobic, particularly with the 53's dark headlining and heavily tinted rear windows.

This all hints at the advanced tech which lies beneath, but the real wood and leather trims also elevate the cabin to something you might expect at the tall asking price.
