Mercedes-Benz Malaysia has been on a roll lately with having almost all of their models spec’d out with AMG goodies. Now, Mercedes has expanded its local footprint with the introduction of the new locally-assembled GLE 450 4MATIC AMG Line. Going head on into the 7-seater market, the GLE 450 4MATIC AMG Line combines the luxury and performance that is synonymous with the Mercedes-Benz brand.
Luxury and Performance with 7 Seats
“We are proud to introduce the all-new Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 4MATIC AMG Line as a locally-assembled variant in Malaysia. It portrays the iconic design of the brand while remaining true to its character as a full-sized 7-seater SUV. From its luxurious appeal to best-in-class driver assists, the SUV is at the forefront of innovation. The interior derives its fascination from the contrast between its design and the superior technological features, such as the MBUX NTG 6 infotainment system, touch-screen media display and Burmester Surround Sound System,” said Michael Jopp, Vice President, Sales & Marketing, at Mercedes-Benz Malaysia.
The GLE 450 4MATIC AMG Line is powered by a 3.0-litre turbocharged six-cylinder engine producing a respectable 367hp at 5,500rpm and 500Nm of torque at 4,500rpm. Mated to the engine is a 9G-TRONIC nine-speed automatic transmission with the extended DYNAMIC SELECT transmission modes. The GLE 450 4MATIC AMG Line is capable of doing a 0-100km/h sprint in just 5.7s and a top speed of 250km/h, if you’re interested in those numbers on a 7-seater SUV.
The GLE 450 4MATIC AMG Line features the iconic diamond radiator grille with chrome pins, sporty aprons all-round with large air inlets, MULTIBEAM LED headlamps and 21-inch AMG multi-spoke light-alloy wheels. The SUV is built with the latest developments in the air suspension system AIRMATIC with enhanced damping system ADS that is able to adjust automatically to the driving conditions, speed and load.
The GLE 450 4MATIC AMG Line is also equipped with state-of-the-art driver assistance systems and best-in-class safety and driving assistance systems including Active Distance DISTRONIC, Blind Spot Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist and a 360-degree camera for all-round visibility.
The GLE 450 4MATIC AMG Line features the new Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) NTG 6 with two 12.3 widescreen displays that includes a digital touch screen media display. Other highlights includes the Burmester Surround Sound System and the well-known favourites like the 64-colour ambient lighting with open-pore oak wood trim elements.
While the GLE 450 4MATIC AMG Line is priced at RM 475,501.23, it will only retain the price tag until the end of the tax-free incentive period. The full-sized seven-seater SUV will then be priced at RM499,888.00 after the additional 10% sales tax. Mercedes-Benz Malaysia also currently offers their “Step Up Agility Financing Plan” for a limited time only.
