A 362-hp 3.0-liter V6 biturbo engine features numerous AMG enhancements for instant response with responsible fuel economy. Increased turbo boost puts its 384 lb-ft of torque on tap at just 1,800 rpm, for a 0-60 time of just 5.6 seconds. Rapid-multispark ignition and high-pressure Direct Injection act with millisecond speed and molecular precision. Beneath its red engine cover, a lightweight diecast-alloy block, variable valve timing and reduced friction further raise efficiency and performance.
With a greater range of ratios and shorter steps between gears, the 9-speed automatic changes gears more quickly but nearly imperceptibly. Along with a more seamless delivery of power, the lighter, more versatile transmission enhances quiet riding comfort and fuel-efficiency. The electronic selector and shift paddles let you control all gear changes with your hands on the steering wheel. And drivers can select a variety of modes as part of the vehicle's AMG DYNAMIC SELECT system.
The advanced electromechanical power steering features a quick 17.4:1 ratio, for quicker, more direct response on winding roads, in sharp turns, and in tight city maneuvers. In addition to its agile feedback, it offers easier steering at low speeds, as well as more precise on-center feel and straight-line stability.
The full-time 4MATIC® all-wheel drive features an AMG-specific transfer case with a permanent 40:60 front/rear torque split, for improved handling dynamics. In any season, on any road, 4MATIC adds to your confidence and control. It also incorporates our 4-wheel Electronic Traction System (4-ETS®), which monitors for the first sign of wheel slip and responds to ensure torque is sent to the wheels with the best grip, even if that's only one wheel.
The GLE Coupe accommodates up to 60.7 cu ft of cargo with its 60/40-split rear seats folded. Flip-forward seat cushions assure a truly flat, fully carpeted cargo floor. Floor-mounted tie-downs, a side parcel net, and a 12-volt power outlet add to your convenience.
The Remote Start feature lets you start your car's engine from the Mercedes me app on your smartphone. One tap of the Remote Start icon lets you pre-condition the cabin by giving the climate control up to a 10-minute head-start on your arrival. It's part of the mbrace Connect package, and five years of its benefits come standard.
The side mirrors can be folded in at the touch of a button, adding convenience when parked in tight quarters. You can also program the mirrors to fold automatically when you remote-lock the vehicle, then unfold upon unlocking.
All new Mercedes-Benz vehicles are protected by our New Vehicle Limited Warranty, covering defects in material or workmanship for 48-months or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first.

Radar-based technology alerts you if you're approaching a vehicle ahead, or even some stationary objects, at a speed and distance that suggest a collision is likely. As soon as the driver starts to brake, the system can automatically provide an appropriate level of braking to help prevent a collision or reduce its severity. If you fail to respond, the system can also initiate braking automatically from speeds up to 65 mph, and can activate the features of PRE-SAFE®
Bright white LED Daytime Running Lamps help get the GLC noticed, for added safety and in modern style. Each of the horizontal rear lamp clusters includes distinctive fiber-optic LED taillamps that elegantly accentuate the GLC's departing view with an elegant arc of light.
This driver-assistance feature helps you to see directly behind your vehicle when backing up. Shift into Reverse, and a rear-mounted camera displays a live 180-degree view of what's behind the vehicle on the screen atop the dashboard. Active on-screen guidelines indicate the car's projected path as you turn the steering wheel.
Arguably our most important passive safety feature, all four outboard 3-point seat belts are equipped with Emergency Tensioning Devices (ETDs) and belt force limiters. If a collision exceeds a preset threshold, ETDs instantly remove slack from the seat belts. Belt force limiters allow a slight amount of give in the seat belts, to reduce the peak seat-belt forces on the occupant.
