The wait is over! Mercedes-Benz Malaysia (MBM) has unveiled the much-anticipated facelift for the popular GLE SUV. This 2024 update brings a combination of sharper style, a bump in power, and the latest technology features, all for a starting price of RM528,888 on the road (without insurance).

While the overall silhouette remains familiar, the new GLE boasts a more modern look thanks to revisions at the front and rear. The signature grille gets a refresh, while the LED headlights take on a sharper design. The taillights are sleeker as well, and a chrome strip connects them for a more premium feel.

Step inside, and you'll find the familiar luxurious cabin layout with a driver-centric focus. The big news here is the upgraded infotainment system. The GLE now features the latest MBUX system (NTG7) with a 12.3-inch touchscreen display. This system boasts improved processing power and supports wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for seamless smartphone integration.

The 2024 GLE retains the 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six engine with mild-hybrid assist. However, Mercedes has dialed up the power output by 14 hp, bringing it to a total of 381 hp and 500 Nm of torque. This translates to a 0-100 km/h time of just 5.6 seconds, making the GLE a powerful and sporty SUV.

Mercedes-Benz is renowned for its safety features, and the new GLE is no exception. It comes packed with a suite of driver-assistance technologies, including Active Brake Assist, Lane Departure Warning, and Blind Spot Assist. These features help to keep you and your passengers safe on the road.

If you're looking for a luxurious and powerful SUV with the latest technology and safety features, then the new Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 4Matic is definitely worth considering. With its starting price of RM528,888, it competes in the premium SUV segment and offers a compelling package for those seeking a blend of performance, comfort, and sophistication.
