Mercedes-Benz has released a series of sketches that serve as a preview to the interior of the next-generation W167 GLE. The SUV will reportedly makes its global debut later in September during the Paris Motor Show.

Based on the sketches, the new GLE will feature a dual-display setup, confirming what we’ve previously seen in a development mule. However, unlike recent Mercedes-Benz models introduced like the W177 A-Class and W463 G-Class, the screens are better integrated into the dashboard and make do without a cover to create a “floating look.”

Those screens will handle instruments and infotainment functions that are powered by the brand’s MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) system as seen on the A-Class. Elsewhere, the German automaker also stated that there will be square air-con vents and two prominent grab handles on the high centre console – both cues also seen in spyshots.

According to Autocar UK, the new GLE’s steering wheel will largely mimic those on current cars with an assortment of buttons and touchpads. The centre console-mounted controls for the infotainment system will likely be similar to what you’ll find in the W177, while a direct shift stalk on the steering column clears up extra space in the middle.

As for the exterior, the new GLE will adopt a sleeker look with sharper headlamps and A-Class-esque taillights. Spyshots also reveal a body that is less boxy than the current W166, although the new SUV still retains the wraparound rear window. The SUV will be underpinned by the brand’s MHA (Modular High Architecture) platform.
