People like to wear less in the summer months and who is Mercedes-Benz to deprive their new 2019 GLE-Class crossover of the same opportunity. With substantially less camouflage than before, two different prototypes were spied undergoing real world testing, one of which is probably the entry-level model while the other could have AMG Line exterior upgrades.

Both have the same elegant curves, 21-inch alloy wheels, candy red paint and upright cabin, but small differences hints towards two different trims. One test mule has two horizontal slats striking through the Mercedes-Benz logo, leading CarScoops to believe that it’s the entry-level model. What could be the AMG variant with a license plate ending in “618”, seems sportier with a beefier looking bumper, just one horizontal line and additional running boards.



As a bonus, the spy photographers managed to take a few pictures of the new GLE-Class’ interior. From what we can see, it’s very similar to what you’d find in the newer Mercedes-Benz cars. There’s the large dual screen instrument and infotainment system, a line of rectangular air vents, and a steering wheel that looks exactly like the one in their new G-Class.

Unfortunately, there were no telltale signs of what engines the prototypes were testing with. Could be an in-line six-cylinder engine from the new CLS 450 or twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 for all we know.

Odd to see Mercedes going with rectangular air vents when they're known for the circular ones. You'd think the designers would stick with the high tech theme when there's such a large dual screen system on the dash. Doesn't match with the old school rectangles.
