It has come to light that Bollywood actor Huma Qureshi has purchased a Mercedes-Benz GLE SUV. The image you see below was shared by the Delhi-born actor on her Instagram account. The Mercedes-Benz GLE costs Rs. 61.90 lakh to Rs. 74.90 and offers a good mix of performance and luxury. It’s available in both petrol and diesel variants. However, the variant details of Huma’s new SUV aren’t clear at the moment.
The GLE-Class was earlier known as the M-Class. The new nomenclature was introduced with a facelift for the high-selling model from the famous German luxury car marque. The facelift came with a revised grille, new head lamps, and new LED taillights. On the inside, the car gets many high-end features, such as electric seat adjustments with memory, COMAND interface and five driving modes.
In India, the Mercedes-Benz GLE is available in three engine variants. The base model is powered by a 2.1-litre four-cylinder diesel engine that outputs 204 bhp and 500 Nm. The top-end variant is powered by a 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine that offers 258 bhp and 620 Nm. The only petrol engine on offer is a 3.0-litre V6 that outputs 333 bhp and 480 Nm. All the motors come mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission.
Huma Qureshi has been pretty quick with making a name for herself in Bollywood. The actor has been screened opposite some really popular stars, like Akshay Kumar (in Jolly LLB 2). Huma’s first car was a Maruti Suzuki Swift hatchback, which was gifted to her by her father during her college days. In 2013, Huma bought a Land Rover Freelander 2, which became the first car the actor bought from her own money. The Freelander2 used to be a hugely capable and popular model from the British SUV maker. In 2015, the Land Rover Freelander2 was replaced with the Discovery Sport. It’s not clear if Huma has purchased the GLE to replace her ageing Freelander 2.
