German luxury giant Mercedes-Benz launched its all-new SUV Coupé—the AMG GLE 53 4MATIC+ Coupé, a first in the AMG 53 series’ in India, today.
It’s been 53 years since AMG has been making vehicles born on the racetrack. In its 53rd year, we are bringing the all-new Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 4MATIC+ Coupé to India. The racing DNA, when combined with its intuitive technology, makes it stand ahead of the rest.
The much-awaited SUV combines sporty elegance and powerful performance with good off-road capabilities clubbed with innovative technologies. It comes with AMG six-cylinder in-line engine with twin scroll turbocharging. The F1 inspired 48 V EQ-Boost achieves 435 HP and an additional temporary 22 HP and 250 NM of electric output (0 to 100 km/h in 5.3 seconds).
The AMG is equipped with seven drive programmes—slippery, comfort, sport, sport+, individual, trail and sand. Its Mercedes Me Connect option offers multiple convenient features like remote engine start, remote lock/unlock, car locator, speed monitor, emergency e-Call, which are accessible from a smartphone or a tablet.
In terms of design, there’s AMG-specific radiator grille in the front along with redesigned bumper with large air intakes, integrated rear spoiler and diffuser with quad tailpipes in black chrome. The double ring in the front apron accentuates its overall sharp design.
The rear of the car, with a trim strip in silver chrome, along with two round twin tailpipes, looks striking.
The all-new GLE is available in India in 300d, 400d, 450 and AMG GLE 53 Coupé variants and is priced at Rs1.20 crore (ex-showroom).
Santosh Iyer, Vice-President, Sales & Marketing, Mercedes-Benz India, said, “The AMG portfolio is one of the fastest growing segments for us and the addition of the ’53 series’ will further popularise the segment. The AMG GLE 53 4MATIC+ Coupé offers more power and enhanced driving experience for the customers, and it is the successor of the outgoing AMG GLE 43 in India. This new performance SUV Coupé will also diversify our successful GLE portfolio by catering to those AMG customers aspiring for a practical and stylish performance SUV Coupé from the all-new GLE range.”
