Mercedes GLE 450 AMG Coupe; The Sportier Choice. 

The Mercedes GLE 450 AMG was the first of three AMGs revealed at the Detroit Motor Show a few months ago.

GLE is the new name for the ML-Class, where G and L denote a Mercedes SUV and the E indicates that this vehicle is based on the E-Class executive saloon.

The GLE 450 AMG looks impressive with a unique AMG body kit that includes a specific front and rear apron, a rear spoiler lip painted to the vehicle colour, plus gloss black body trim. Despite its similarity to an SUV, the familiar sound of this powerful car leads its occupants to believe that they are in sports, rather than off-road model.  

The GLE 450 is fitted with the AMG-fettled 362bhp 3.0-litre bi-turbo V6  engine and a new 9G-TRONIC nine-speed automatic transmission, which is paired up to a 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive system. Mercedes claims that the 450 AMG can manage 0-162 mph in 5.7 seconds.

The interior of the GLE 450 AMG impresses, with AMG sports seats, AMG sports steering wheel, aluminum décor and sports pedals. AMG carbon-fiber trim and piano lacquer enhance the appearance as an additional option.   

The stunning GLE 450 AMG will be on sale in the UK in 2016 with an expected price tag of around £62,800.
