The Mercedes GLE lineup provides comfortable seating for five and also offers generous carrying capacity, with 38.2 cu-ft of cargo space behind the rear seats and 80.3 cu-ft with the rear seatbacks lowered. A standard power liftgate makes loading and unloading cargo easy.


Available deeply contoured sport front seats, brushed-aluminum pedals with rubber studs, and a sport steering wheel clearly convey the serious driving attitude of the GLE.

Driver & Passenger Safety

Other examples of trailblazing GLE innovations include: Lane Keeping Assist, which alerts the driver by simulating rumble strip vibration in the steering wheel if the car drifts from its lane without the turn signals on. It operates at speeds above 37 mph via a system that recognizes lane markings by using a small camera in the windshield and a computer that analyzes the video images.

Blind Spot Assist monitors both blind spots behind and to the sides of the vehicle. Whenever a turn signal is activated with a vehicle in the blind spot, the driver gets visual and audible warnings. Available as a separate option, Active Lane Keeping Assist and Active Blind Spot Assist incorporate an intervention feature, in which ESP braking automatically helps correct the vehicle's course if the driver doesn't heed the initial warning.

Adaptive Highbeam Assist uses a small video camera to sense both headlights and taillights, then softly and automatically transitions between high and low beam operation to avoid blinding other drivers. With this system, the range of the headlights can be varied infinitely from their current 220 feet to up to 1,000 feet.
