Brabus introduced the upgraded crossovers Mercedes GLE and GLSMarch 5, 2020
Brabus presents a series of updates for the luxury crossovers GLE-Class and GLS-Class, which include changes in appearance, as well as modernization of the technical part of cars.
The mid-size Mercedes GLE crossover boasts an updated front bumper with modified air intakes and updated LED lights that light up when the owner approaches the car or someone pulls the door handle of the crossover. Behind Brabus offers a new spoiler – it is mounted on the roof and has a more aggressive shape. The company also equips the car with rims up to 23 inches in diameter.
The guys from Brabus also decided to make some changes to the power plant of the mid-size crossover, although so far they are only available for diesel versions of the GLE-class (pictured above), over time, modified versions of gasoline engines will also be presented. The PowerXtra D30 for the diesel GLE 300d boosts power to 302 horsepower (690 Nm) compared to the standard 255 hp. (620 Nm). PowerXtra D40 for GLE 400d will be able to offer 365 hp (750 Nm).
In addition, the crossover receives other suspension settings, so that ground clearance is reduced by 25 millimeters.
All upgrades from the Brabus studio created for the full-size GLS-class (pictured below) are similar to the changes for the GLE-Class, including the availability of the PowerXtra D40 diesel engine enhancement kit and suspension settings. The larger crossover also received a revised front bumper with additional LED lighting. The new roof spoiler has a different design than the one available for the mid-size GLE, and it looks more like a small edge at the top edge of the hatchback. The company offers 24-inch wheels.
