Mercedes-Benz Malaysia launches a premium SUV range

Three words to describe the Mercedes-Benz SUVs: sporty, luxurious and reinvented—inside and out. It’s “a new breed of SUVs for the premium and active lifestyle market” as aptly put by Mark Raine, Vice President, Sales & Marketing Passenger Cars, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia. The range consists of the Mercedes-Benz GLC, GLE and GLE Coupé, all of which possesses an aggressive design with equally powerful features and an uncompromised comfort.


Let’s start with the Mercedes-Benz GLC. It’s the premium mid-sized SUV that is perhaps the most perfect for everyday driving around the city yet durable enough for any outdoor activities (and big enough to transport your equipment for it). Sporty settings have been included in the GLC such as the sports-tuned suspension but it’s really the 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive and 9G-TRONIC that enhance its agility and dynamics.

Consideration has been given for the active lifestyle driver as Mercedes-Benz included an added convenience for loading and unloading with the HANDS FREE ACCESS function that allows the user to open the tailgate with just a swiping movement of the foot under the bumper. A final must-mention of the car’s features would be the high-end Burmester surround sound system that comes in 13 speakers—imagine how three-dimensional it would feel.


Next up is the Mercedes-Benz GLE, a full-sized luxury SUV which can best be described as a character with precision, power and prestige. Raine calls it “the flagship of the SUV range”. It has the largest load compartment in the whole segment, making it the ideal getaway vehicle with family or friends. To give you a clearer idea of the space inside, it can basically fit three golf bags in the boot.

Furthermore, the car simply impresses with its ground-breaking assistance systems: a nine-speed 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission, an AIRMATIC air suspension with ADS variable damping system that guarantees extremely stable driving, Active Parking Assist with PARKTRONIC, and more.


Last, but not least, the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupé is “the beast among the SUVs”. This particular vehicle represents high adrenaline, making it the most suitable partner for adventure-seeking drivers. The AMG sports model for the GLE Coupé is especially fitted with a performance-enhanced V6 biturbo engine with an output of 270kW (367 hp) and 520 Nm from 1400 rpm. The 22-inch 5 Twin-spoke AMG Allow Wheels is sure to provide you with an exhilarating rush.
