Mercedes has begun to tease the next generation GLE by releasing some sketches, which give us a preview of what sort of design cues will be found in the 2019 model. The standard 10.25 inch displays that are found in the A-Class, will not be slightly bigger coming in at 12.3 inches. The new SUC will also swap out the COMAND infotainment system for the new MBUX that's debuted in the A-Class. The new GLE will also feature a redesigned steering wheel, that's said to have as many as 18 controls as well as two small touchpads.
Don't really get a sense of all those new features from these sketches, but that good to hear that they are making significant revisions to the cabin. 18 buttons/switches and touch pads on the steering wheel does seem a little excessive.
