Mercedes-Benz will be launching the new GLE-Class in India before the festive season and the deliveries will commence in August.

The bookings for the GLE-Class have already commenced at all the dealers as we confirmed with a couple of dealers who are already taking orders. Mercedes-Benz’s ML-Class is one of the best-selling SUVs in its segment and there has been a lot of waiting, while the competition is giving discounts.GLE-Class

The ML-Class will get a facelift soon and it will be renamed as the GLE-Class, as per the new Mercedes-Benz nomenclature. The GLE-Class will retain the same 250 and 350 CDI engines. There isn’t a major difference in the styling of the GLE-Class and the ML-Class, be outside or the inside.

The headlamp styling is in line with the new-generation Mercedes-Benz products. Then there are the alloy wheels too. The GLE-Class will get some upgrades on the inside too with a new COMAND system with a larger screen and mostly even a new instrument cluster. The pricing of the GLE-Class will be INR 50-63 lakhs (on-road).

This is at par with the competition like the Audi Q5 and the BMW X3, with the X3 being the recently upgraded one.
