Big Motoring Worlds Car of the Week: Mercedes-Benz GLE 350
Mercedes-Benz has become a real contender in the premium SUV space over the past couple of years. Capitalising on a strong product foundation, the Mercedes SUV line up includes some truly fantastic machines and one such machine is this, the Mercedes Benz GLE 350 and we’re excited to offer this example for sale at Big Motoring World.
Until recently the premium SUV space was a sparse affair. The likes of Porsche had it all to themselves with the likes of the highly popular Cayenne and Macan. For Porsche, these SUV’s quickly became their best sellers and allowed for greater investment to be made into the sports car side of the business.
This trend at Porsche was quickly set to become the industry norm. A natural shift for consumers to SUVs led to greater investment in the market segment and for Mercedes, seeing the likes of fellow German rival Porsche succeeding in this space meant that they had to get in on the action.
So what about the detail on this car? Well, straight off from a visual perspective it's an imposing machine indeed. Riding high with a tall driving position, the GLE commands attention. Thanks to the AMG specification, the GLE looks fantastic with that large angular grille taking centre stage at the front whilst chrome detailing to the front apron, window surrounds and door handles add further visual appeal. The GLE also benefits from large side sills and AMG style multispoke alloy wheels.
Upon opening the door this theme of quality continues as you’re greeted by swathes of quality black leather upholstery throughout which features contrasting coloured stitching. Alongside this extensive use of leather are silver-coloured trim pieces and gloss piano black accents which provide for a fresh and contemporary feel.
Whilst we know that the GLE wins on the style front, what about the technology and features? In this Mercedes, you’re not going to be disappointed as it comes specified with some fantastic options.
From a mechanical point of view, this GLE comes fitted with a 3.0-Litre diesel engine and an automatic transmission. Covering just 19,244 miles from new, full details on this Mercedes Benz GLE can be found here.
