Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class 2021

Our most recent review of the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class resulted in a score of 7.9 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Journalist Tom White had this to say at the time: The GLE Coupe isn't going to click with a traditional enthusiast but will appeal to a new age of mainstream performance buyers. It's a total tech showcase and you can feel all of those 48-volt benefits from behind the wheel.

Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class 2021 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.

Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class 2021 Interior

The Mercedes-AMG GLE 53's cabin is almost as confronting as its exterior. Up front you're met with an assault of chrome, a ventilation overload and a totally dominant expanse of screens. 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.

Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class 2021 Speed

Despite a close to 2.5-tonne kerb weight, Mercedes-AMG says the twin-turbo petrol in-line six-cylinder engine's 320kW and 520Nm is enough to catapult the GLE 53 from 0-100km/h in just 5.7sec.
