"Our GLE Coupé combines typical coupé attributes such as sportiness, dynamism and agility with the self-assured presence, versatility and ruggedness of an SUV".
Ola Källenius, Member of the Daimler Board of Management responsible for Marketing & Sales Mercedes‑B enz Cars
"For Mercedes-Benz, the GLE Coupé is the trailblazer for a versatile vehicle class. It will enable us to win new customers for our brand".
Gorden Wagener, Head of Design at Daimler AG
"The GLE Coupé faithfully follows our iconic Mercedes-Benz coupé design idiom - enhanced by styling features from the SUV sector. With its extreme proportions it embodies sensual clarity and represents modern luxury plus superior sportiness".
Dr Andreas Zygan, Head of SUV Development
"We decoded the styling specifications of our colleagues in Design using the appropriate automotive technology, and made them a reality. Every component influencing the vehicle dynamics was scrutinised, and designed to differentiate the vehicle clearly as a coupé. Our work particularly centred on the suspension, steering and powertrain, and on networking them".
