From innovative autonomous driving features to secure safety systems, the 2020 GLE SUV is already leaving auto experts impressed.

From the use of ultra high-strength steel in its body shell, to a suspension where each shock absorber has its own electric motor, to a voice-controlled infotainment system that springs into action at the mere mention of a name, this all-new generation of GLE-Class is fascinating.”
