The first pictures of the Mercedes GLE Coupe have leaked the web, ahead of its debut at the North American International Auto Show.

Previewed by the Concept SUV Coupe, the production model has a prominent front fascia with a single bar grille that is flanked by S-Class inspired headlights. Bigger changes occur aft of the A-pillar as the GLE Coupe adopts a dynamic roofline and a distinctive rear end that is bound to provoke love-or-hate it reactions.

The interior largely carries over from the M-Class but it adopts a new steering wheel, additional wood trim and a freestanding COMAND infotainment system.

Engine options remain unconfirmed but there will reportedly be a number of variants including:

  • A GLE 350d with 258 PS (190 kW) and 620 Nm (457 lb-ft) of torque
  • A GLE 400 4MATIC with 333 PS (245 kW) and 480 Nm (354 lb-ft) of torque
  • A GLE 450 AMG Sport with 367 PS (270 kW) and 520 Nm (383 lb-ft) of torque

The GLE 63 AMG Coupe will arrive next summer and it is slated to feature a twin-turbo 5.5-liter V8 engine with at least 525 PS (386 kW) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque.
