The off-road Mercedes-Benz GLE of the new generation will be equipped with an active hydro-spring suspension from the flagship S-Class. An advanced decentralized servo system will allow you to monitor each wheel individually and precisely adjust the stiffness of the shock absorbers depending on the traffic situation. This is reported by MotorTrend.

The system called E-Active Body Control is a more advanced version of the Magic Body Control suspension known on the S-Class. It consists of accumulators mounted on each rack, and powerful servo drives, which constantly regulate the degree of compression and rebound. Thanks to this realization, Mercedes-Benz was able to completely abandon the anti-roll bars.

Another feature of the new GLE will be the Curve Control system, originally developed for the SL-Class. In the turns, it counteracts the rolls, tilting the body not outward, but inside the bend.

In addition to the E-Active Body Control, the new generation Mercedes-Benz GLE will be equipped with a basic passive suspension with steel springs and pneumatic legs with adaptive shock absorbers.

In July, Mercedes-Benz showed the GLE interior of the next generation. The car was shown to journalists at the main design studio of the brand in Sindelfingen. The SUV will receive two 12.3-inch displays under a single glass, a three-spoke steering wheel in the style of the new S-Class with touch panels, a new multimedia touchpad and an MBUX interface.
