Brunei’s sole distributor of Mercedes-Benz Jati Transport recently unveiled the latest 7-seater SUV – the GLE 450 4Matic – which will be entering Brunei market pretty soon.

The new model is introduced as Mercedes-Benz’s first petrol car powered by an in-line six cylinder engine systematically electrified with 48-volt technology.

A number of tests made by its manufacturer, Daimler AG, revealed its capacity to produce 367 Horsepower (hp) and 500 Nm torque, with further 16hp and 250Nm powers possibly added for a short period of time with the EQ Boost system available in the new model.

It is really not difficult to understand the intention behind the new 7-seater GLE. Its design, packed with its size and several jagged features made it obvious that the manufacturer is actually attempting to merge the concepts of luxury cruisers and off-road monsters into one.

Besides giving comfort, the new GLE’s features including the long wheelbase and the large flush-fitted wheels are also good indicators that it can cut a good figure on any kind of terrains.

In terms of spaciousness, besides adding the third row, the second row seats are now adjustable with just a click away from the designated side-buttons.

This feature can be considered Daimler’s move to stray away from the conventional latch system, where passengers would have to sneak their hands down the narrow corner-side of their seats to adjust their spaces.

Additionally, the new car is also equipped with an infotainment system that is large enough to be seen by passengers from all corners of the car – making it one of the ideal family rides for Bruneians.

The new Mercedes-Benz GLE will be launched in two lines, AMG Line and Standard Line. It is also available for viewing at the Mercedes-Benz Autohaus in Beribi.
