Auto experts managed to photograph the new Mercedes-Benz GLE before the presentation

Already in October at the Paris Motor Show will be presented a new generation of the crossover Mercedes GLE, which will receive significant changes and a recognizable design.

Automotive experts attended a design seminar in one of the offices of the German concern Daimler. Within the framework of this seminar they were given the opportunity to get acquainted with the next generation of the crossover Merdedes-Benz GLE. Nevertheless, the company refused to unveil for the time being, so the car was shown in camouflaged form and in a dark room, which did not allow in any way to consider the model in more detail. And at the entrance to the office they asked to leave all electronics, including telephones, laptops and cameras.

Despite the fact that the design of the car is not disclosed, other details still managed to find out. As it was seen from previously published sketches, a new multimedia system from MBUX will appear in the salon, which is a whole complex of solutions. The most noticeable solution in this system is the use of two high-quality displays as a dashboard and multimedia. And both displays are united in a single element. In addition, the novelty will receive a new steering wheel with touch buttons and a redesigned front panel design.

The company also confirmed that the new generation of GLE will be based on another platform – the MHA (Modular High Architecture), first used on new versions of the E-Class. The new platform will greatly facilitate the crossover and increase the rigidity of the body. This same chassis will use the GLE Coupe, as well as the successors of GLC and GLS.

Also, the new platform will make it possible to expand the engine line due to new units and electrified systems. Moreover, diesel modifications will not leave the market despite the bad reputation of cars on heavy fuel. In addition to gasoline and diesel engines, Mercedes will also offer hybrid versions. Of course, the “charged” modification from the special division Mercedes-AMG will not be forgotten either.
