Towards the end of this year, the all-new 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe is set to join its conventional (and more practical) brother, the recently introduced GLE. These are the latest spy pics and info from Automedia.
The new 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe will come to the market in December, some four years after the launch of the current generation. For the first time, the GLE Coupe has to fight not only the BMW X6, but also the Audi Q8. BMW will also replace its X6 this December, while Porsche will reveal a coupe version of the Cayenne as early as this Summer.
As the latest spy pics published by Automedia reveal, just as before, the roofline runs sharply towards the rear and is lower than that of the regular GLE. Of course, we cannot clearly discern all the design cues since the car is still covered with stickers, but expect a set of thin rear light units that accompany the more flared arches and the rounded hatch.
As far as the engine line-up is concerned, we expect the new 6 inline 3.0-liter turbodiesel with 272 (GLE 350 d) and 330 HP (GLE 400 d), while the base model will be powered by the four-cylinder and 245 hp 2.0-liter diesel (GLE 300 d). Later this year, petrol fans will get the new petrol 6 inline 3.0-liter with 367 HP which debuted in the new GLE 450 4Matic in the US. Standard equipment will include the current Mercedes nine gears automatic gearbox and 4Matic all wheel drive. The top-of-the-line 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe will be the Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 Coupe which will use the well-known 4.0 liter biturbo V8 engine, with more than 600 hp on tap.
