Mercedes GLE Coupe SUV - Interior & comfort
Stunning interior with lots of features
One advantage of the GLE Coupe's more comfort-orientated handling is a plush ride. UK versions sadly don't get Mercedes' clever E-Active Body Control, but even the standard air suspension makes it one of the most comfortable cars in its class. There's a small amount of wind turbulence from the door mirrors at high speeds, but otherwise refinement is excellent.

In the front seats, the GLE Coupe's interior is virtually identical to the standard model, which is no bad thing. A pair of high-resolution 12.3-inch displays replace the instrument binnacle, with the right-hand screen providing infotainment and navigation. It's powered by Merc's latest MBUX system, which is very slick, but not quite as easy to use as BMW's iDrive. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is supported and we're fans of the augmented reality sat nav that uses a windscreen-mounted camera to take footage of the road ahead and overlay arrows onto it.
Opt for the GLE 400d and it comes in just one trim: AMG Line Premium Plus, which is opulent and features 22-inch alloy wheels, multibeam LED headlights, a panoramic sunroof and a Burmester stereo.
Parktronic, part of the parking package that helps assist with steering and maneuvering when parallel parking, is standard across the GLE’s all four trim levels.
