Risky design highlights the Mercedes-AMG GLE43 Coupe

It's a crossover with coupelike styling. Love it or hate it, you have to admit the designers are putting it all out on the line.

I love two-seater, RWD convertibles and own a 2004 Mazdaspeed Miata for pavement fun and a lifted 2001 Miata for pre-running. I race air-cooled Volkswagens in desert races like the Mint 400 and the Baja 1000. I have won the Rebelle Rally, seven-day navigational challenge, twice and I am the only driver to compete in an EV, the Rivian R1T.

Regardless of its looks, there are plenty of luxury features like available massaging front seats and heated and cooled cup holders.

Mercedes is one of the best when it comes to driver's aids and the GLE43 is no different. An excellent adaptive cruise control system is paired with Steering Pilot to keep the car centered in the lane.

There is also Active Blind Spot Assist, which can apply the brakes if a lateral collision is imminent.

Those rear tires are about a foot wide. It's a little bit of overkill for the amount of horsepower put out, but hey... it looks good.

The GLE43 runs the COMAND infotainment system. It's complicated and difficult to use, but does support Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The 8-inch color display looks a bit like an afterthought and it is not a touchscreen, so get used to using a dial on the center armrest.
