A comfortable, sporty, winter-optimised or completely individual suspension setting of the engine, transmission, suspension and steering can be called up using the Controller of the DY NAMIC SELECT in the centre console. The “Comfort” mode facilitates balanced and efficient driving. “Sport” is characterised by sportier tuning for the suspension, which has been lowered by an additional 15 mm, sportily taut damper tuning (in conjunction with AIRMATIC package in each case), a more direct steering feel and modified shift points. The Mercedes-AMG models include the “Sport Plus” mode as standard – for extremely sporty shifting and damping characteristics, and also special tuning of the active light function and main beam. The “Slippery” transmission mode provides optimised handling onwet roads. And “Individual” enables you to vary the various parameters completely as you wish.
Navigation, telephone, audio, video, internet – with the optional COMAND Online control and display system the driver is able to keep these and many other functions in view and under control. The data are shown in high resolution on the centrally positioned, particularly fine glass display with a 20.3 cm screen diagonal. The touchpad facilitates intuitive operation using finger gestures, and the user can enter letters, special characters and numbers in their own handwriting.
A team of advanced technologies enhance safety, reduce driving stress, and help to smooth every move. COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS can brake to avoid a collision autonomously. PRE-SAFE® PLUS helps prepare you for front, rear and rollover accidents. And optional DISTRONIC PLUS® pairs adaptive cruise control with innovative steering assist.
Beyond the standard rearview camera, the available Parking Assist Package is like having a virtual valet onboard your GLE. It can help you size up open parking spots, back you in automatically, and pull out when it's time to go. And its Surround View System composes four cameras into one overhead view of your GLE and its immediate environs.
