Mercedes-Benz kicks off the teaser campaign for its SUV, the GLE with a series of sketches that reveal important information on the interior of the future car, set for launch in 2019.
The dashboard has been redesigned from scratch and will now integrate the company’s digital displays as standard, with a diagonal bigger than that of the A-Class display, with 12.3 inches, instead of 10.25, to fit the size of the SUV.
The car will switch from the company’s older infotainment system, the COMAND Online, to the all-new super intelligent MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience), that made its debut with the A-Class hatch.
The future GLE will also get a new steering wheel, with no less than 18 controls and touchpads for commanding the functions of the automobile by simple swiping motions. Mercedes chose a bigger touchpad in the center console and new central air vents. The center console also features massive handles, a hint that the vehicle is off-road ready.
The stretched wheelbase will also provide extra legroom for the rear occupants. There will also be ambient lighting “like never before” on board the SUV, Mercedes promises.
The Mercedes-Benz GLE with its high-end interior is set to be presented in the months to come, soon followed by its coupe sibling.
