The 2015 Detroit Auto Show will certainly be a busy place for all the true car enthusiasts. It will also be the place where the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class Coupe will have its debut. The new model will come with amazing features, which will cover all the aspects of a fantastic vehicle. The Mercedes models are always impressive, but we must admit that the GLE-Class Coupe is something special. In our minds it represents the best of the traits the German car manufacturer has to offer. The design is flawless, the level of comfort and luxury outstanding and the powertrain will amaze even the pickiest and most obnoxious buyer ever. Add to that the quality that comes with a Mercedes-Benz badge – and by this we don’t mean the quality you see in the A-, B- and C-Class, but the real thing, which comes with higher levels and naturally, more expensive models – and you got yourself an exceptional vehicle. The 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class Coupe will come in several different variants and the first units of some of them will be released by the summer 2015, while the more advanced ones will be available shortly after.
