The Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S 4MATIC+ Coupé

New Mercedes coupé combines elegance with performance

DUBAI, February 20, 2020

An elegant and electrified coupé with superb agility and driving dynamics, a high-traction all-wheel drive vehicle offering exceptional everyday comfort: the new Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S 4MATIC+ Coupé combines numerous vehicle personalities in one model.
 
At the heart of the Performance SUV Coupé is the AMG 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine, which has been electrified with an EQ Boost starter-alternator and a 48-volt on-board electrical system to deliver an immediate response at start-up. 
 
The model delivers an impressive output of 450 kW (612 hp). Agility is guaranteed through an AMG RIDE CONTROL+ air-sprung suspension with AMG ACTIVE RIDE CONTROL roll stabilisation, a fully variable AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive and an AMG SPEEDSHIFT TCT 9G 9-speed automatic transmission.
 
An AMG through and through, the Coupé is equipped with an AMG-specific radiator grille and features all the advantages of a Mercedes SUV including: a comprehensive range of safety features and superior traction on damp, sandy or snowy driving surfaces.
 
"Our new GLE 63 S Coupé rounds off our attractive portfolio in this segment. It meets the highest expectations in terms of design and exclusivity as well as excellent driving dynamics and agility. Thus, our latest SUC is an outstanding example of Performance Luxury made by AMG. In addition to that, even our GLE Coupé disposes of a 48-volt on-board electrical system connected with the EQ Boost starter-alternator which makes us drive the electrification of our model series in a consistent way”, says Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.
 
 
The design idiom of the exterior is the embodiment of hallmark AMG Driving Performance. As a typical feature of the Performance models, the front apron in a dynamic jet-wing design is painted in the vehicle colour and has black air intakes. Imposing power domes in the bonnet and the front splitter in silver chrome emphasise the sharper coupé design all round.
 
The side skirts, exterior mirror housings and flared wheel arches are painted in the vehicle colour, and seamlessly blend into the muscular overall look. The model is shod with 22-inch light alloy wheels with AMG lettering as standard.
 
The newly designed rear apron with AMG-specific details such as a striking diffuser in black and a trim strip in silver chrome visually accentuate the vehicle's width. The special AMG exhaust system with two rectangular high-gloss chrome-plated twin tailpipe trim elements completes the sportily dominant look – the tailpipe trim elements are visually differentiated by a characteristic fluted effect. 
 
Further individualisation options are available in the AMG Night Package. This includes heat-insulating, dark-tinted windows and also the front splitter, front and rear apron trim, inserts in the side skirts, mirror caps and window frames in dignified black. In addition, the twin tailpipe trim elements are finished in elegant high-gloss black.
 
 
The typical look and feel of the brand is continued in the high-quality interior of the GLE 63 S Coupé, which is characterised by a resolutely sporty ambience with a dynamic and exclusive flair. The AMG seats are upholstered in nappa leather, provide optimum lateral support and have an AMG-specific seat pattern layout with an "AMG" badge in the front backrests. Other leather variants are optionally available. The variant is further identified by its grey seat belts and contrasting topstitching in the seats in silver grey. Individually adjustable ambient lighting comes as standard.
 
The 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine in the new GLE 63 S Coupé (450 kW/612 hp) is fitted with an integrated EQ Boost starter-alternator that gives the car a combined fuel consumption of 11.5 l/100 km and combined CO2 emissions of 263-262 g/km). 
 
It combines the starter motor and alternator in a single, powerful electric motor compactly integrated between the engine and the transmission and also utilises twin turbocharging, where the two exhaust-gas turbochargers are arranged to make optimum use of the exhaust gas flow and improve response even further.
 
The seven DYNAMIC SELECT drive programmes Comfort, Sport, Sport+, Individual, RACE, Trail and Sand allow a very varied driving experience with a widespread between maximum comfort and agile sportiness.
 
"Comfort": comfortable and fuel-efficient driving, e.g. thanks to early upshifts. Suspension and steering are set up for an emphasis on comfort.
 
"Sport": sporty characteristics thanks to more agile response to accelerator pedal commands, shorter shift times, earlier and more precise downshifts owing to double-declutching. More dynamic suspension setup.
 
"Sport+": extremely sporty characteristics thanks to an even more agile throttle response, double-declutching on downshifts and targeted torque interventions on upshifts with cylinder deactivation for optimised shift times. Increased idle speed for faster pulling away. An even more dynamic setup for suspension, steering and powertrain.
 
"Individual": individual adjustment of the drive system, transmission, AMG DYNAMICS, suspension and exhaust system. In addition, the gliding function is available in the "Reduced" and "Moderate" drive settings.
 
"RACE": the "RACE" drive programme is designed for highly dynamic driving on closed race circuits. In this programme, all of the parameters are configured for maximum performance.
 
"Trail": safe driving at maximum performance on soft, muddy or slippery ground by adjusting the throttle response, force distribution and the suspension. The suspension is raised to a higher level. From 70 km/h the suspension is automatically lowered again.
 
"Sand": the adjustments to the suspension and the 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive are made for sporty driving on loose, sandy surfaces. The suspension is raised to a higher level. From 70 km/h the suspension is automatically lowered again.
 
The drive programmes are linked to the AMG DYNAMICS agility control, which means that the handling characteristics can be even more closely matched with different requirements and driving conditions. Behind the umbrella term AMG DYNAMICS are the agility functions "Basic", "Advanced", "Pro" and "Master", whose functions are automatically selected by the respective drive programme. The further "Traction" and "Slide" levels come into effect in the Off-Road "Trail" and "Sand" drive programmes when the ESP is deactivated. -- Tradearabia News Service
