“We are proud to introduce the all-new Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 AMG Line. It portrays the iconic Mercedes-Benz design while remaining true to its character as an off-roader. The interior derives its fascination from the contrast between the luxurious and elegant design and the digital high-tech of our MBUX system. It a product of ‘all kinds of strength’,” said Dr Claus Weidner, President and Chief Executive Officer Mercedes-Benz Malaysia.
The GLE 450 AMG Line will carry an updated MBUX – Mercedes-Benz User Experience, an improvement from the A-Class in which this state-of-the-art system debuts include two large 12.3-inch/31.2 cm screens which are arranged side-by-side for an impressive wide-screen look. It also features the Night Package with AMG body styling, diamond radiator grille with chrome pins, 22-inch AMG 5-spoke twin alloys, MULTIBEAM LED and Acoustic Comfort Package.
A turbocharged six-cylinder that generates a thunderous 367 hp, the GLE 450 AMG Line is powered by 3.0 litre engine. The perfection continues with the extended DYNAMIC SELECT transmission modes, the latest stage of development of the air suspension system AIRMATIC with enhanced damping system ADS, the 9-speed 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission, state-of-the-art assistance systems and the latest telematics generation with internet access.
MBM also introduced the GLC 300 Coupé AMG Line to strengthen their position as the leader in the premium SUV segment in Malaysia. It will be powered by a 2.0 litre turbocharged engine producing 245 hp and 370 Nm and further separating it from its predecessor, the GLC 250 Coupé.
Dr Claus Weidner, Chief Executive Officer and President, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia said: “We are delighted to now bring the production of the GLC 300 Coupé, locally-assembled in our plant in Pekan. The GLC 300 Coupé reflects our iconic Mercedes-Benz coupé design while symbolising the contrasts that become one. With its design idiom of sensual purity, it perfectly embodies the perfect balance of muscle and aesthetics, dynamics and functionality. It is an SUV and a coupé, two outstanding traits of two automotive worlds.”
