The 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe is a hit-or-miss kind of crossov… err.. coup… err… whatever the hell you want to call it. Some may find it the perfect vehicle for their lifestyle of hauling oddly shaped cargo, while others may consider it a model that answers not a single need. Regardless of how you may feel about it, folks must enjoy these models as they keep on coming, and they are even arriving with special packages, like the GLE Coupe’s Night Package.

Despite its odd proportions and funky looks, the GLE Coupe is entering a strange time in the world of luxury crossovers. In this world, vehicles are becoming increasingly niche-oriented, resulting in models like the BMW X4, the Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class, the BMW X6, the Range Rover Evoque, and the upcoming Audi Q Junior.

The Night Package does little to change the polarizing looks of the GLE Coupe. Instead, it adds just a touch of specialness by way of high-gloss-black mirror caps and grille louvers. This package is available with any of the GLE Coupe’s 11 exterior colors.

There is no mention of Mercedes limiting this package to any particular model within the GLE Coupe lineup, but I have a feeling that the AMG model will not have it available. This means that this package can have powertrains ranging from a 3.0-liter diesel V-6 with 258 horsepower to a 3.0-liter gasoline-fueled V-6 with 333 horsepower.

Pricing for the Night Package is unknown, but I wouldn’t expect more than a few hundred dollars.

Why it Matters

The luxury crossover segment has become quite cutthroat, as BMW, Mercedes, Audi, and Jaguar are all challenging each other to a game of who can fill the narrowest of niches the fastest. The Night Package gives the GLE Coupe just a little more ammo in the four-door crossover coupe segment.
