So, let’s think about what encapsulates the GLE? This vehicle offers a perfect happy medium between ploughing across an Arab desert and careering around Silverstone like in sporty Audi Q7, neither of which it will do, but that's absolutely okay! The middle ground between these two far-flung extremes is where the second-gen GLE feels so much more at home than its previous incarnations did. Quite frankly, we struggle to bring to mind many vehicles that offer a better overall combination. This model is actually part of a new range of Mercedes vehicles. Previously known as the brand's ML-Class, this new model has combined many of the successful elements of that vehicle to create one with excellent all-round quality and a number of exciting features. In the form of the GLE, Mercedes gives us a fast, proficient, real-world and well-appointed vehicle that it should always have had in this sector. This MK2 model boasts a longer wheelbase, which gives the car a more spacious feel, short overhangs and sizeable precisely-fitted wheels, which makes for a far more purposeful look. One of LeaseLoco's deals gives you an incredibly dapper, refined car with a distinctive exterior and a choice of some of the most well-balanced and effective engines.
There a couple of very sound engine options on a GLE contract hire deal with us but we reckon it might be the 250d that proves most popular. It's a nicely balanced engine and one that requires neither compromise on performance nor economy. The result? An affordable option in this range. At the top of the range, you’ve got the GLE 350. The 3.0-litre turbo V6 350d gives you an astoundingly fast 254bhp and you get 0-62mph in 7.1 seconds. Fuel economy sits at 46.3mpg and CO2 emissions at 162g/km. So, if you want your GLE to boast levels of power Mercedes usually holds back for some of their most impressive models, then this one's for you. Let's not forget about the trims either:
