    Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 Coupe 4Matic+ Launched At Rs 1.2 Crore; Rivals Audi Q8, BMW X6 & More

    After launching the new GLE in January 2020, Mercedes has now launched the AMG GLE 53 Coupe 4Matic+ in India. It is available in a single variant priced at Rs 1.2 crore (ex-showroom India). The GLE 53 Coupe essentially replaces the first-gen GLE 43 Coupe that was on sale in India. It is the first Mercedes in India to wear a ‘53’ badge. Mercedes uses the ‘53’ moniker for the AMG cars which are powered by a combination of an inline 6-cylinder petrol engine and a 48V mild hybrid system.

    Under the hood, the GLE 53 Coupe 4Matic+ is powered by a 3.0-litre twin-turbo petrol engine making 435PS of power and 520Nm of torque. This engine is coupled to a 48V mild-hybrid system that provides an additional boost of 22PS and 250Nm under heavy acceleration. Power from this system is sent to all four wheels of the SUV via a 9-speed automatic transmission and Mercedes’ 4Matic 4WD system.

    Talking about the design, like one would expect, the GLE Coupe looks identical to the standard GLE till the B-pillar. Post that, the Coupe gets a sloping roofline and jutted-out rear end with an integrated spoiler. Since it is an AMG model, the GLE 53 gets some exclusive elements like the AMG front grille, 21-inch alloys and aggressive front and rear bumpers. 

    Similarly, on the inside, the layout remains identical to the standard GLE with a twin-screen setup with MBUX for infotainment and instrument cluster. It also gets some AMG-specific elements like an AMG flat-bottom steering and AMG front seats. 

    On the features front, the GLE Coupe is quite similar equipped as the GLE. It gets 9 airbags, a Burmester sound system, powered front seats, four-zone climate control, panoramic sunroof, 360-degree camera, parking assist and air suspensions with Mercedes’ magic active ride control. 

    Mercedes also offers non-AMG and AMG 63 variants of the GLE in the global markets but they are not expected to make way to our shores. That said, the GLE 53 Coupe 4Matic+ takes on the likes of the Audi Q8, BMW X6 and the Porsche Cayenne Coupe in the Indian market.
