Mercedes-BenzPH launches new SUV family

Each of these vehicles are optimally armed for all challenges on and off surfaced roads – from the GLA through the elegant SUVs in the guise of the GLC, GLE and the sporty GLE Coupé to the legendary G-Class. Five SUVs with five distinctive personalities with a unifying goal conquering every terrain imaginable.

From now on, all new off-road vehicles will also carry the “G” gene in their name – from the GLA to the new GLE Coupé and the G-Class. Experience impressive off-road versatility combined with remarkable sedan handling with any of these SUVs from Mercedes-Benz.


The G-Class is a true design icon thanks to its unmistakable exterior. For over 35 years now, the typical profile has been raising the pulse of off-road fans all around the world. With its redesigned bumper and extended fenders, the latest model variant shows itself to be more dynamic than ever before.


From the distinctive front with its central star to the broad stance of the tail end, the Mercedes-Benz GLA makes it clear what the S in SUV stands for. Sportiness – from every perspective, in every situation. The raised level and flat roof line give the vehicle a muscular yet aerodynamic design. In the GLA, coupe-style lines are blended with progressive SUV features to form a unique appearance. The design is rounded off by typical SUV elements such as the raised roof rails, an optical underride guard and robust, and black grain details.


With its flexibility and agility, the GLC is the ideal companion in the city. Thanks to its tenacity, it also masters difficult terrain superbly. It’s a true all-rounder. A perfect mix of sensuous lines, harmonious proportions, and clearly drawn feature lines, the GLC combines both a modern and a timeless appearance. Also, thanks to a wide range of optional design and equipment lines and packages, exciting individual features.


For every type of ground, there’s an appropriately matched drive program: the new Mercedes-Benz GLE lets you change the vehicle setup with ease thanks to the DYNAMIC SELECT controller. Selecting a drive program tailors the characteristics of the engine, transmission and steering to those of the suspension. You have a choice of “Comfort”, “Sport”, and “Slippery”. And for those who also want to use their GLE off the beaten track, the optionally available Offroad Engineering package additionally proposes the “Offroad”, and “Offroad+” drive programs. In the “Individual” program, all characteristics of the vehicle can be adjusted individually to suit your taste, and then permanently saved.

GLE Coupé

With the new GLE Coupé, Mercedes-Benz is combining the cultivated sportiness of a Coupé with the impressive poise of an SUV for the first time. The characteristic profile and wide track width serve to create breathtaking dynamics, while the athletic shoulders and powerfully modeled surfaces lend the vehicle an extremely individual presence. With its low body and flat roof the new GLE Coupé has an unmistakable shape – a shape that catches the eye and remains in the mind.

These vehicles will be distributed by Auto Nation Group through their dealer networks that include Mercedes-Benz Greenhills, Mercedes-Benz Bonifacio Global City, Mercedes-Benz Alabang and Mercedes-Benz Cebu.
