Photospies have seen a prototype of the new Mercedes-Benz GLEJuly 8, 2018
The next series of “spy” photos shows us a partial view of the instrument panel from the passenger side. The company Mercedes intends to introduce an updated GLE, which will receive an in-house index of W167 in the coming months. The crossover will be built on a new platform. GLE Coupe will be shown later.
Apparently, the official presentation of the new version of the German crossover Mercedes-Benz GLE should take place very soon. Most recently, the automaker’s press service published the interior of the new GLE with the help of sketches. We got the spy photos, which depicts the cabin of the test prototype of the crossover. These pictures were taken from the driver’s side, therefore, because of the steering wheel, you can not consider a new infotainment system.
Fortunately, in addition to the photos, we were provided with a video, in which the German crossover salon is shown in more detail. I must say, foreign journalists are very lucky, because they were able to make such successful shots and take a great view for video shooting.
As expected, the MBUX complex appeared in the salon of the new Mercedes-Benz GLE – a new multimedia system was created, which consists of 2 screens. One of them performs the role of the instrument panel, and the other displays an image from the infotainment system. The first car of the automaker, which received the MBUX system was the new generation 5-door hatchback A-Class. The car was shown a few months ago – it is reported that with time, MBUX will receive absolutely all models of the brand. As can be seen from the published materials, the medium-sized crossover of the luxury class received a huge 12.3-inch display.
The updated GLE steering wheel is also partially shown on this video. It is noteworthy that we did not manage to consider those elements of the novelty salon that were present in the official sketch – in total we did not count 18 new “chips”. We want to separately note the square ventilation holes located under the large display.
Not long ago, we wrote that the Mercedes EQC shot on tests at the Nurburgring looks like a Tesla killer.
