As another exciting interpretation of a four-door coupé, the commanding SUV meets the highest of standards in terms of performance, design and comfort. The powerful heart of the vehicle - the AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine - beats even faster in the new Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 Coupé with the highly sporty S-Model which is rated at 585 hp which will be the only version available in the UK. The perfect prerequisites for a highly dynamic on-road driving experience come courtesy of the suspension, which has been systematically designed for a sporty performance. The high-performance SUV coupé comes with the AMG Ride Control sports suspension with active roll stabilisation ACTIVE CURVE SYSTEM and the Sports Direct-Steer system. The 4MATIC all-wheel drive with rear-biased power distribution and the DYNAMIC SELECT transmission modes promise to deliver what distinguishes every AMG vehicle: driving performance.

Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH: "We see great potential in this vehicle segment, which is new to Mercedes-AMG. The GLE 63 Coupé is the logical progression of our ambitious growth strategy - after all, in 1999 with the first high-performance SUV ML 55 AMG, we established a completely new segment. The new GLE 63 Coupé will inspire SUV fans focused on dynamics while at the same time representing a new interpretation of driving performance."

The new GLE 63 Coupé combines the sportiness of a coupé with the strengths of an SUV. High agility, distinctive engine sound and typical sports car acceleration are united with poise and assurance, tremendous pulling power and perfect traction.

The typical SUV raised seating position and effortlessly unhurried superiority on the road, paired with typical AMG longitudinal and transverse dynamics and direct response to driver commands, result in an intense driving feel. The wide choice of different worlds of experience is based, among other things, on the DYNAMIC SELECT transmission modes, which for the first time permit such a wide spread of driving dynamics.

The five transmission modes of "Slippery", "Individual", "Comfort", "Sport" and "Sport Plus", which the driver is able to select using a rotary control on the centre console, deliver fundamentally different driving dynamics. Be it the response of the engine, the shift strategy of the transmission, ESP thresholds, power assistance for the steering or characteristics of the dampers: the system networks all the control systems, generating different sets of parameters for distinct driving experiences.

In terms of drive system, the AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine develops 585 hp and 760 Newton-metres in the S-Model which is the only version that will be available in the UK. It boasts the higher output and torque courtesy of a higher maximum charge pressure.

The 8-cylinder powerplant, which is assembled according to the "one man, one engine" philosophy, delivers the familiar powerful performance: thus, the GLE 63 Coupé accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 4.2 seconds (S-Model), returns 23.7 mpg (NEDC (combined) and emits CO2: 279 g/km as well as compling with the EU6 standards.
