Under the hood, the 300 d is powered by a 2.0-litre engine that makes 245PS and 500Nm. The 400 d, on the other hand, gets a 3.0-litre unit that makes 330PS and 700Nm. Both  engines are mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission that sends power to all four wheels via Mercedes’ 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system.

In terms of design, the new GLE looks similar to its elder sibling, the GLS. The front looks upright and houses the huge twin-slat grille flanked by the new sleeker headlamps. At the back, signature design elements like the rear quarter have been carried forward giving the rear windshield a wrap-around effect. The tail lamps are now sleeker but continue to stretch along the rear fender.

The interior has been redesigned completely. It gets Mercedes’ twin-screen setup with a digital instrument cluster and an infotainment screen. Features on offer include up to 9 airbags, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, panoramic sunroof, 360-degree camera, a Burmester sound system, four-zone climate control, air suspension, and parking assist.
