Arrive. Start.

Sit back and relax, above it all. Surrounded by outstanding comfort in the impressively appointed GLE cockpit, you can feel at home on every journey.

Highlights include the redesigned upper section of the instrument panel featuring the media display and the 3-spoke multifunction sports steering wheel. Optionally, the dashboard can be covered in ARTICO man-made leather.

Thanks to the large expanse of glass that makes up the panoramic sliding sunroof, the interior of the Mercedes-Benz GLE SUV has a bright and airy feel.

The sky's the limit.

The panoramic sliding sunroof creates a special sense of space and freedom. The large expanse of glass lets daylight in and, at night, provides a view of the stars.

The system consists of a fixed panoramic glass rear section and an electrically operated sliding glass front section for ventilation of the interior as required.

The amber-coloured ambient lighting creates a cosy atmosphere inside the Mercedes-Benz GLE SUV.

Energy source.

Light is essential for our well-being. Ambient lighting makes your GLE a special place that provides what you need at any given time: relaxation, vitality or dynamism.

With its attractive indirect light, the ambient lighting accentuates the contours of the interior design, creating a generous sense of space. Three colour options – white, amber and ice blue – are available to configure your preferred lighting mood. The brightness can be dimmed in five stages.

High sitting position. Low stress level.

From the moment you step inside the GLE, the off-roader's hallmark raised seat position quite literally offers the highest level of comfort.

Power-adjustable seats for the driver and front passenger provide ideal support and excellent comfort on long journeys.

Plenty of space for everyone. And everything you can think of.

With the largest shoulder width in its segment and space for three child seats, the rear of the GLE is hugely comfortable.

To cater for your comfort requirements and the amount of luggage space you need, the seat backrests can be adjusted in ten stages, tilting forwards by 12° and back by 6°. The armrests, which feature a cup holder, and the optional seat heaters make any journey a joy.
