An elegant appearance is one of many things to like about this Mercedes-Benz vehicle. With large wheel sizes, gracefully molded surfaces, and wide-beam LED lights, the car blends form with function easily.

Not only do these details help improve handling and speed for the 4-cylinder engine, but they are also favorable for better gas mileage. Other performance enhancements include fully variable all-wheel-drive, adaptive cruise control, stop-and-go assist, and an all-new E-Active Body Control suspension paired exclusively with the GLE 450’s 48-volt hybrid system. We’ll be happy to walk you through each of these features and describe what they do, and why they matter to the performance of the Mercedes-Benz GLE.
