Mercedes-Benz GLE Facelift Exterior Details

The updated GLE SUV has undergone only minor modifications, keeping its pre-facelift silhouette and design language. The Mercedes-Benz GLE facelift includes new LED headlights and a single-slat grille up front. For a new look, the bumper has also undergone a slight update. Regarding the silhouette, the 2023 GLE comes standard with 20-inch alloy wheels, though 22-inch wheels are an option. The back bumper also appears more modern, and the taillamps are now updated. 

Similar to the previous model, the Mercedes GLE is only available in India in long-wheelbase (LWB) form, which offers more interior space.

Mercedes-Benz GLE Facelift Interior Details

Mercedes has also minimized the interior modifications for the GLE makeover. The dashboard layout is almost exactly the same as it was prior to the facelift. Yet it now has a redesigned steering wheel with touch-haptic controls and upgraded merged infotainment displays (12.3-inch each) that use Mercedes' most recent MBUX operating system.

The GLE facelift also comes equipped with a 590W 13-speaker Burmester sound system (standard), an air purifier, wireless Android auto and Apple CarPlay, 4-zone climate control, an electric tailgate, and electrically flexible front and rear seating with memory settings (front seats). 100W fast charging is now supported by the rear USB-C charge ports. The heated seats, head-up display, and AIRMATIC suspension are additional benefits for the top version.

Nine airbags, traction control, park assist, a 360-degree camera, and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) like autonomous emergency braking and blind spot monitoring ensure the safety of the occupants.
