      GLE facelift

      This is the first major update for the GLE SUV since its launch in this avatar in India in early 2020. It can be had in the GLE 300d diesel, GLE450 4MATIC petrol and the GLE450d 4MATIC diesel. Further, it can be had in two trim levels- The standard line and the fancier AMG line across seven colour options.

      Inside, highlights include dual digital displays, multi-zone climate control, leather upholstery, a full LED light package, power front seats, power windows and mirrors and a Burmeister sound system. The AMG line gets all of these features but with AMG badging in the steering, seats, dashboard and faux carbon fibre inserts.

      At the entry level, you have the GLE300d diesel that is powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder that produces 265bhp/550Nm. The GLE450 petrol is powered by a 3.0-litre petrol engine that produces 375bhp/500Nm and is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission and has also been fitted with Mercedes’ 4 MATIC AWD system. You get driving modes as a part of the engine package.
