Mercedes-Benz PH Puts the 'G' in GLE

Mercedes-Benz PH Puts the 'G' in GLE
Auto Nation Group (ANG), the importer and distributor of Mercedes-Benz in the country, has launched the new Mercedes-Benz GLE. Priced at PHP5.690 million, the fourth-generation model of the premium SUV comes with an all digital cockpit. It is also the third vehicle model for Mercedes-Benz that has been fitted with the voice-activated MBUX infotainment system. "The GLE exhibits iconic Mercedes-Benz design while remaining true to its character as an off-roader," said Gorden Wagener, Chief Design Officer at Daimler AG. "With its design idiom, it perfectly embodies our design philosophy of sensual purity, thus representing modern luxury. The interior derives its fascination from the contrast between the luxurious and elegant design and the digital high-tech of our MBUX system." The GLE also has an active suspension system E-Active Body Control as a world first, while the driving assistance systems take another step forward with Active Stop-and-Go Assist. "In 1997, Mercedes-Benz founded the premium SUV segment with the launch of the M-Class. Since then, more than two million customers have decided in favor of the off-roader. With a new control concept, innovative driving assistants, a new engine range and significantly more space, the new GLE is set to continue this success story," said Ola Källenius, member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG responsible for Group Research and Mercedes-Benz Cars Development. The GLE has a redesigned body sitting on 21-inch light alloy wheels. Further, it has a Multibeam LED with Ultra-Range beams ensures driving visibility while the rear lights are also divided into two sections, complemented by a chrome-plated underguard. Space-wise, the new GLE also has a considerably longer wheelbase than its predecessor, creating significantly more space, especially for passengers in the rear. It offers more space in the rear's legroom and headroom and comes with third-row seats--a first in the Mercedes-Benz SUV line-up. Rear seats can be electronically adjusted and folded to accommodate longer items and luggage. For easier storage of luggage, the GLE sports a power liftgate which can be opened with a kicking motion underneath the liftgate. For its safety, the GLE has Blind Spot Assist, Active Brake Assist, and is equipped with an advance 360-degree camera to provide support to the driver. Under the hood, the new GLE is powered by an in-line-four Turbo Diesel engine with 9G Tronic nine-speed automatic transmission, producing an output and torque of 245 hp and 500Nm, respectively. A first in Mercedes-Benz in the Philippines, the new GLE is equipped with EQ Boost, a mild hybrid feature wherein energy recovered from braking and systematic engine shut-offs delivers a boost of energy when needed or when eliminating turbo lag.
