Performance, plug-in, or pedestrian: there’s a 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE for almost every luxury-SUV buyer. The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE skips the off-road pretense and luxury opulence for a family-first mission. With the GLE, Mercedes has crafted an American-built answer to the likes of the Acura MDX and the Ford Explorer. The GLE is one of Benz’ best-sellers, and a quick survey of its size, its powertrains, its safety record, and its lavish features demonstrate why that continues to be true, two decades after it was launched as the M-Class. Whether it’s a base GLE 350, a plug-in hybrid GLE 550e, or a powerful AMG GLE43 or GLE63, the mid-size Mercedes SUV offers abundant choice, for $53,000 and up. First, it offers a choice between a conventional wagon body and a sloped-roof Coupe—their words, not ours. In either case, the GLE’s chunky grille, massive M-B star (lit if you like by LEDs) and its pronounced fenders place it visually in the crossover-SUV realm. Coupes have a more sleek roof that elongates the body but cut into usable space; we prefer the wagon, we’re not wastrels. In either body, a lavishly trimmed cabin still has an unfortunately fragile-looking digital display atop the dash, and doesn’t quite have the waterfall of beauty found inside a GLC SUV or any of Benz’ bigger sedans. Performance runs from bright to wicked. The base GLE 350 sports a 302-horsepower V-6 and a 7-speed automatic with more than adequate responsiveness. A plug-in hybrid teams a V-6 with motors and batteries for much quicker acceleration and 5.3-second 0-60 mph times. The AMGs hit 60 mph in less than five seconds; in GLE63 S trim, there’s 577 hp on tap through a 7-speed automatic and all-wheel drive. Non-AMG editions have friendly handling and a soothing ride that relaxes even more with available air springs; the AMG editions tighten their road-motion screws and deliver unflappable handling that’s close to the sterling manners of a Cayenne Turbo. Five adults can fit in the GLE-Class, but four will be much happier. The seats in AMG models improve on base trucks, thanks to stiffer bolsters. Mercedes puts leather and a power passenger seat on the options list, a somewhat breathtaking move considering the base price of the GLE. The rear seats recline for road-trip comfort, and cargo space is very good, though it suffers in Coupes for one obvious reason: that roof. Safety scores aren’t complete but are already great. The GLE’s better with a bundle of safety options that include surround-view cameras and blind-spot monitors. Likewise, its base equipment is fairly complete, but aside from the optional leather and power passenger seat, you’ll also have to pay a stiff tariff for a package that bundles Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Despite their flaws, those infotainment interfaces are much easier to use than Mercedes’ COMAND system, with its non-touchscreen and its multitude of equally unimpressive input paths (voice, handwriting, roller-controller). Handsome in wagon or fastback bodies, the 2018 Mercedes GLE wears an urbane SUV look. The basic M-Class silhouette is still there, but the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE has fresher details that still knit together into a refined, somewhat car-like look. We give it a point above average both for its exterior and its interior, with some credit for the more daring low-roof model—Coupe, in Mercedes-think.
The full DRIVE & SOUND with the 2018 KIA Stinger GT powered by a 3.3 T-GDI V6 TwinTurbo delivering 370 hp and 510 Nm of torque (total weight: 1910 kg) Power goes through all four wheels and an very smooth and quick shifting 8-speed automatic. Overall I think the Singer GT is one of the surprises of the year so far as it is a lot better than I expected it to be. It's a significant step upwards from everything you know from KIA before, theres quality, refinement and lots of power. The best thing about it...people are turning theirs heads after this car, don't even realizing its a KIA, well done!

The premium SUV that invented its class 20 years ago still leads the way in every arena of driving, and from every angle of its design. From its iconic Star to its sleek LED taillamps, the GLE keeps the future looking brighter.
Distinctive LED Daytime Running Lamps catch the eye as their glowing arc sweeps into the sculpted profile. Standard active LED headlamps shine far ahead, and adapt to curves and traffic ahead. LED taillamps show off a "twin torch" design.
