2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE rendered

- This is the fourth-generation of the ML SUV which was renamed GLE in 2015

- To be based on the new MRA platform and will be lighter

- Will be powered by the straight-six cylinder set of engines

One of the most popular Mercedes SUVs, the GLE-Class, has been due for a change since the introduction of the current generation car back in 2011. Although it started out as the M-Class, the 2015 nomenclature system has reincarnated it as the GLE. The new fourth-gen GLE is set to arrive in global markets in 2019 and its India-debut should be soon after.

The new design of the GLE makes it a little rounded, akin to its smaller sibling, the Mercedes-Benz GLC. The curving lines make it look sportier. Slated to be built on the new MRA platform, the GLE will certainly shed quite a bit of weight in spite of the expected increase in dimensions. It will continue to be a five-seater and sit below the flagship GLS SUV. The horizontally slatted grille matches the Mercedes signature, and thankfully, the LED signature looks unique.

Since it is the E-Class equivalent of SUVs, it will get the twin-screen dashboard and the layout that is in tune with that of the sedan. Panoramic sunroof, foldable rear seats, power seats in the front and three-zone climate control will all be standard fitment on the GLE. Under the hood, the old-school V6s will be replaced by the new generation straight-six set of engines with the modern 48V mild-hybrid platform.

The high performance AMG version of the GLE will certainly be offered, including the GLE53 and the GLE63 AMG. These will get the vertically slatted Panamericana grilles and sportier styling and, of course, the large 20-inch alloys. The GLE is expected to be sold in the global markets by the end of 2018 as a MY 2019 car and it should arrive in India soon after i.e. in the first quarter of 2019.
