Western publications have published photos from tests of a partially camouflaged prototype of the updated Mercedes GLE Coupe. Among other things, you can see the new design of the front bumper.
The current Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe made its official debut in August 2019 and we are a little surprised to see that it is already being prepared for a facelift. Foreign journalists in Germany captured a slightly disguised prototype of a coupe-crossover being tested on the streets of Stuttgart, and at first glance it seems that the visual changes will not be dramatic.
The front panel of the test car with German license plates is masked, and it looks like the bumper design is new.
The lower bumper has new air intakes on both sides, and the headlights can also hide a new interior design. The shape of the clusters does not appear new, but the LED daytime running lights showing through the camouflage are likely to be changed.
The only thing camouflaged in the back are the taillights. While there is no guarantee, this likely means the LED units will be redesigned to better match the front panel changes. We do not rule out other changes in the rear, although it seems that the new product from Mercedes is in the early stages of development.
The current GLE coupe has been on the market for about two years and we believe it will take at least another 12 months for an updated version to arrive. With that in mind, we can’t be 100 percent sure this prototype showcases all the visual changes that are on the maps for a large luxury coupe crossover.
