Redesigned 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe Is Coming For BMW X6

What appears to be an entry-level spec all-new Mercedes GLE Coupe was spotted recently undergoing winter testing while under camouflage.

Unlike previous prototypes, this one doesn’t feature any AMG exterior styling, and is equipped with a regular-looking set of five dual-spoke alloy wheels. We can already tell that without AMG front and rear spoilers, the 2020 GLE Coupe appears a little less imposing, although we should reserve judgement for when the wraps come off.

Style over substance

It’s been clear for years that Coupe-like four door vehicles aren’t going anywhere. Their popularity has only gone up, as some people seem to appreciate a stylish exterior at least as much as they do overall practicality. If things were different, then there would be no need for anybody to purchase a GLE Coupe over the regular GLE.

Alas, things being as they are, the 2020 GLE Coupe is well on its way to being revealed to the public sometime this year, joining the Audi Q8 in a soon to be completely revamped segment, along with BMW’s upcoming third-generation X6.

As for what it will actually look like, all signs point to this being more than just a sloped roof version of the latest GLE. It features a massive grille, large sweptback headlights, a more angular shoulder line and a fastback-like rear end design.

Inside, expect to find the same steering wheel, dashboard design and 12.3-inch displays as you would in the regular GLE, plus the latter’s engine range, at least to some extent, based on market availability.

The GLE Coupe will also be available in 53 and 63/63 S form, with 435 PS (429 HP) for the former and some 571 PS (536 HP) / 612 PS (603 HP) for the latter.
