The SUV was spotted sporting 19-inch optional alloy wheels.

  • It will take on the likes of the BMW X5, Volvo XC90, Land Rover Discovery and the Audi Q7.

  • When launched, it could be priced between Rs 70 lakh and 1.05 crore (ex-showroom).

  • Mercedes-Benz launched the current GLE in India in September 2018 and now has already started testing the next-generation of the SUV in the country. It was first unveiled at the 2018 Paris Motor Show. 

    The SUV was seen carrying testing equipment called the Real Driving Emission (RDE) analyser which is used to test emission levels. The German carmaker is expected to upgrade its engines to meet the BS6 norms.

    Since it is based on a new platform, its wheelbase has increased by 80mm and now measures 2,995mm. Also, the GLE will get the option of a third row for the first time. There are a total of five variants on offer globally (three diesel and two petrol): GLE 300 d, GLE 350 d, GLE 400 d, GLE 350 and GLE 450.

    Internationally, Mercedes-Benz offers a total of four engine options. The 300 d variant gets a 2.0-litre turbocharged unit producing 245PS of power and 500Nm of torque while the 3.0-litre unit on the 400 d variant is good for 330PS and 700Nm. Also, the petrol engines on offer include a 2.0-litre engine with 255PS for the GLE 350 and a 3.0-litre turbo V6 making 367PS in the GLE 450. All engines come mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission.

    In terms of features, the GLE is expected to get the two 12.3-inch touchscreens which debuted in the new A-class as standard. It will also get a large touchpad on the centre console along with multi-functional touch panels on the steering wheel. 

    It is expected to be priced between Rs 70 lakh and Rs 1.05 crore (ex-showroom India) and will go up against the likes of the BMW X5, the Land Rover Discovery, Audi Q7 and Volvo XC90.
