2016 model year changes

The Mercedes-Benz M-Class gets a major update and a name change for this year. From 2016 on, it will go by its new name, the GLE. Beyond a change in nomenclature, the GLE gets a new front fascia that echoes the rest of the Mercedes-Benz lineup, giving the GLE more brand continuity. New taillights in the back also improve the styling, leaving the GLE with clean, contemporary looks. The biggest change however, is a brand new coupe version. With low slung styling and powerful performance oriented engine options, the GLE Coupe should be a good match for anyone looking for a sporty, yet practical ride that has no problems conquering the elements.
