Impressive engine capabilities aren’t all the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLE comes with in terms of performance. It also comes with optional 4MATIC® all-wheel drive (AWD). Some models split the torque power 50/50 between front and rear wheels to avoid wheelspin. Other models can vary this distribution to send power to the wheels that need it the most.

Taking a seat behind the wheel of your 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLE provides access to premium amenities that’ll have you feel like you’re traveling first class each time you get behind the wheel.

Feel the softness of the MB-Tex or Nappa leather upholstery—offered in Black, Espresso Brown, Macchiato Beige, and more. Then, select the trim option that matches your needs best.

Bring light to your cabin on even cloudy days and stormy nights with the standard 64-color LED ambient lighting. Choose from one of the pre-set colors or adjust the brightness to match your mood.

Premium Comfort

Sit back and feel your muscles relax on even the longest commutes with the standard heated seat function. Need a little help working some knots out of your back? The 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLE is offered with optional multicontour front seats with massage features.

There are eight different massage programs you can choose to help you feel completely relaxed.

The 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLE also comes with the available Air Balance cabin-air purification system and Air Balance cabin fragrance system.

The cabin-air purification system uses an ionizer to help remove impurities from the air, leaving you with a fresh-air feeling all the time. Going one step further, the cabin fragrance system emits a subtle fragrance into the air at different times. This way, your cabin always smells as fresh as possible.
