The latest addition to Mercedes-Benz’s 450 family is a new version of the GLE-Class SUV (formerly known as the M-Class). Just like the others, Mercedes GLE 450 AMG 4Matic is powered by the firm’s relatively new 3.0-litre V6 biturbo engine and it comes with more sporty features than normal models.

Among the main highlights of new Mercedes GLE 450 AMG one can mention the AMG suspension, the Sports Direct-Steer system, the nine-stage automatic transmission 9G?TRONIC and the permanent all-wheel drive 4MATIC with the rear-biased torque distribution of 40:60. But to look at it one would struggle to see any difference compared to other GLE models.
