New 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE Spotted Out And About

The Mercedes-Benz GLE will soon be redesigned, probably as an answer to BMW’s launching of the newest X5. The prototype for the new-generation of Mercedes’ mid-size luxury SUV has been spotted testing and we’re here to pick it apart for new information and details.

The current-generation GLE was never a redesigned model. It was introduced back in 2016 as a model for that year, but it was really just an update of the M-Class, which was launched in 2012. This redesigned model should focus on giving the GLE a new look. It will arrive for the 2019 model year, and should be on sale starting later this year or early next year.

How did we know this test vehicle was a GLE? The size and proportions would tell you that externally. But there was also a shot of the earlier test vehicles that showed the “W167” inscription on the rear. The current-generation GLE is internally referred to as a W166, so that makes sense, right?

The prototype has very light camouflage and disguise, and it’s easy to make out a number of details such as the massive grille and the more angular headlight shape. There’s also a more rugged look for the SUV’s body, thanks to the wide wheel arches that lead to the narrow cabin. Overall, the shape is more similar to the iconic G-Class with its strong lines and aggressive styling.

Inside, the layout is quite similar to the E-Class with the dashboard featuring a host of technology such as the dual-screen design and smartphone-like screen that is the main controller for the infotainment system. Speaking of infotainment system, that would be the new MBUX system that’s in the latest A-Class.

The MHA platform will be used for the new GLE. This is related to Mercedes’ MRA platform that’s in the German automaker’s sedans and coupes. Remember that it had its debut in the GLC? There’s also going to be a redesigned GLS in the future.

3 Things You Must Know About The Porsche Cayenne Coupe

It’s finally official. Porsche boss Oliver Blume confirmed that the Cayenne Coupe is more than just rumors. There’s actually one that would hit the road sometime in 2019. That’s only a year from now, so we might be seeing this reveal sooner than later.

Unique Design

The coupe will be based on the regular Cayenne and will have similarities with the SUV version. However, there’s going to be some fresh designs on this coupe, too, such as a new front bumper design and the B-pillars on the back. These two major changes will set the coupe apart from its SUV sibling. The rear end will have sleeker taillights, altered rear side windows, and a liftback-styled tailgate. The taillights, in particular, might remind you of the second-generation Panamera.

Powerful Engine

The Porsche, of course, wants you to have as much power as this little number could hold. The Cayenne Coupe will get two engine options—a 2.9-liter, twin-turbocharged V-6 unit that produces 440 horsepower, and a 4.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V-8 engine that churns out 550 horses. There are no plans for a diesel option as well as a hybrid engine for now, so don’t hold your breath on that. But hey, we never can tell, right? Enjoy the two engine options for now, but let’s see if we can at least see a hybrid option in the future.

Best Of Both Worlds

On paper, there is no reason why we should choose the Cayenne Coupe over its SUV sibling. Even the engines are a tad bit slower than the ones in the SUV seeing as the coupe got only the Cayenne S’ and the Cayenne Turbo’s engines. But if you’re one of those who like the driving dynamics of the sedan and the height of the SUV, then this coupe is for you.

The Cayenne Coupe combines the Cayenne’s front, Panamera’s rear, and coupe styling. It’s quite an attention-seeking little number, and we’re sure plenty will be interested, particularly those who are also looking at the BMW X6, the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe, and the Audi Q8.
