Everyone loves a luxury SUV and a number of celebrities are in for newer rides this season. The latest to join this bandwagon is the couple Farhan Akhtar and Shibani Dandekar.

The GLE SUV is offered in three variants - 300d 4MATIC, 450 4MATIC and 400d 4MATIC. The GLE 300d uses the 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel that develops 242 bhp and 500 Nm of peak torque. There’s the 3.0-litre diesel engine on the GLE 400d tuned for 326 bhp and 700 Nm of peak torque. Meanwhile, the 450 comes with a 3.0-litre turbo petrol with 355 bhp and 500 Nm of peak torque. All three engines are paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission that sends power to all four wheels.

At present, Mercedes-Benz India only has the GLE 300d in stock and it’s likely that Akhtar and Dandekar opted for this version of the SUV. Other features on the model include a 360-degree parking camera, tyre pressure monitoring system, blindspot detection, active brake assist, and more.

Big SUVs are something that Farhan always has had in his garage. The actor also owns a Mercedes-Benz GLS, while he also owned a Jeep Grand Cherokee, gifted to him by the American manufacturer. A Porsche Cayman though remains the crown jewel in his garage.
