Mercedes-Benz USA has announced the release of the 2017 Mercedes-AMG GLE43 SUV. In addition to being the ninth model of the new AMG 43 range, the GLE43 will, by the early part of the 2017, replace the GLE400 as the performance-oriented version.
While this newest offering is indeed a family vehicle that is both practical and luxurious, it is equipped with the latest in driver assistance and safety technologies, as expected from the brand. The inside offers enough space for five adults to sit in comfort with the cargo space at the back of the rear seats offering 38.2 cubic feet. With the seats lowered, the space increases to 80.3 cubic feet.
Occupants are likely to enjoy being inside the GLE43 given that the front seats have been heated and a power sunroof is available, both fitted as standard. Additionally, the ventilated seats come with three cooling and heating levels. There is even a heated steering wheel being offered.
As mentioned earlier, the GL43 is fitted with a host of the latest safety technologies, active and passive. Automatic braking is, of course, a standard. It will also have the safety systems known as PRE-SAFE and ATTENTION ASSIST. The former system in particular determines if a collision is likely to happen and activates the needed measures just before the actual impact in order to protect everyone inside.
These include the sunroof being closed, raising the side windows, and even tightening the seat belts in the front. There will be the Premium 3 Package to be offered with the Driver Assistance Package having the BAS PLUS with Cross Traffic Assist, DISTRONIC PLUS with Steering Assist, PRE-SAFE Brake, PRE-SAFE PLUS, Active Lane Keeping Assist, and Active Blind Spot Protection.
