Nieuwe Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe is hier, ook als AMG

Mercedes heeft een vervolg gegeven aan zijn GLE Coupe, de productie-auto die nog het meest in de buurt komt van het Maybach Vision Ultimate Luxury Concept. Onze mening? Het rijdt ongetwijfeld heerlijk.

Als u bij Mercedes-Benz een soepel rijdende, luxueze sedan wilt, dan neemt u een E-Klasse. Of, als het budget het toelaat, een S-Klasse. Wilt u dezelfde eigenschappen, maar dan een paar centimeter hoger boven de grond, met een mindere wegligging? Dan neemt u een GLE Coupe. Elke keer dat we de eerste generatie tegenkomen, met zijn plompe voorkomen en kolderieke kont, trekken we uit een pure reflex een gezicht alsof iemand ons net in een dozijn limoenen heeft laten bijten. Maar je kunt niet alles goed doen als fabrikant. 

Inmiddels heeft Das Haus de tweede generatie GLE Coupe gepresenteerd. Is het beter? Absoluut. Is het mooi? Dat is subjectief. De designers hebben ervoor gekozen opnieuw een nagenoeg loodrechte kont te tekenen, met een enorm kofferdeksel. Dit wordt nog eens extra geaccentueerd door de kenmerkende taps toelopende achterlichten, die we kennen van moderne designs als de CLS en de A-Klasse. De vorige generatie (C292) had nog van die enorme blobs, die leken alsof de tekenaar zijn inktpot had omgestoten,en er maar het beste van had gemaakt. De achterkant oogt cleaner, en is beduidend minder rond dan voorheen. Ook werd het achterruitje platter gelegd.

De achterste passagiers krijgen bovendien een betere instap dankzij langere achterportieren. De vorige exemplaren bogen onderaan mee tot voor de wielkasten, in de nieuwe GLE eindigen ze boven het achterwiel. De voorzijde kenmerkt zich door beduidend meer grille. Deze loopt nog niet door tot de koplampen, maar er zich weinig plaatwerk tussen. Verder is de voorzijde opnieuw massief als een bulldozer. Ideaal om de minder bedeelden van uw linkerbaan te jagen. Met een breedte van 2.010 mm wensen de eigenaren overigens veel succes in de parkeergarage, of op de linkerbaan in een van de vele Baustellen

Bij een imposante auto horen ook imposante motoren. De GLE Coupe komt er bij zijn lancering alleen met zes-in-lijn-motoren. Klanten kunnen kiezen uit twee varianten van de OM 656-turbodiesel:

  • De GLE Coupé 350 d 4MATIC levert 200 kW (272 hp) en 600 Nm
  • De GLE Coupé 400 d 4MATIC doet 243 kW (330 hp) en 700 Nm

Voor benzinesnuivers is er de:

  • GLE 53 4MATIC+ Coupé, met 435 pk en 520 Nm

Alle modellen hebben een 9-traps automaat en vierwielaandrijving. Ook krijgt de GLE Coupe vanaf 2020 de beschikking over muziekstreaming van Amazon. Beats by Bezos, zogezegd. Het gevaarte staat komende maand op de IAA in Frankfurt.
