New Mercedes GLE Coupe: pics, prices and Jurassic World debut

Mercedes‘ swoopy new BMW X6 rival is nearing showrooms very soon, with customers able to order it now priced from £60,680. The GLE Coupe also stars in this year’s biggest blockbuster so far, Jurassic World, alongside both four and six-wheeled versions of the Mercedes G-Class SUV.

The more stylish new GLE Coupe will sit alongside the standard ML-replacing GLE, which debuts later in September. That £60,680 asking price gets you in a GLE 350d in base AMG-Line spec. Power comes from a 3.0-litre six-cylinder diesel engine generating 255bhp and 620Nm of torque and 39.2mpg on the combined cycle. Standard kit includes adaptive air suspension, AMG body styling, 21-inch alloys, LED headlamps, an electric tailgate, heated leather seats, Merc’s seven-inch COMAND infotainment system and keyless go.
