Sai Tamhankar posted a video of her taking the delivery of her new SUV on Instagram. The actress wrote, “Do not let anyone ever tell you what you can or cannot do. Dream it, Achieve it, Live it! As we embark on a new year, let’s set newer goals and achieve them together. पाडव्याच्या खूप खूप शुभेच्छा.”

The video actually shows the whole delivery process. The actress is seen walking to the Mercedes-Benz dealership with her friends and family. After completing all the paperwork, the car is unveiled. The actress is handed over the keys to her new car along with a bunch of hampers.

Sai Tamhankar sits inside the car and checks everything. She is so excited that she even kisses the steering wheel of the SUV. Religious rituals are also carried out as usual, and finally, after all the formalities are done, she drives the car out. The excitement of buying a new SUV is very evident on Sai’s face.

The car seen here in the video is the Mercedes-Benz GLE facelift, which was launched in the market in November last year. The price for a brand-new GLE starts at Rs 96.40 lakh, ex-showroom, and goes up to Rs 1.15 crore, ex-showroom. The GLE has received an update this year, and most of it is cosmetic.

The exterior has been tweaked slightly to make it look much more premium than before. The front grille, bumper, LED DRLs, headlamps, and tail lamps have all been revised. Apart from the exterior, the SUV comes with revised interiors too. The SUV comes with an updated cabin that draws inspiration from the Maybach GLS luxury SUV.

The SUV comes with features like a multi-functional steering wheel with capacitive touch control panels, an updated infotainment screen with the latest MBUX system, reclining seats with a sliding function, electrically operable sun blinds, fast-charging USB-C ports, and four-zone climate control, Burmester surround sound system, 360-degree view cameras, active parking assist, and a gesture-controlled, powered tailgate, blind spot assistance system, and 9 airbags.

The Mercedes-Benz GLE is available with both petrol and diesel engine options. The entry-level 300d variant is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged diesel engine that generates 265 Bhp and 550 Nm of peak torque.

The GLE 450 uses a 3.0-liter petrol engine that generates 375 Bhp and 500 Nm of peak torque. The top-end diesel variant 450d uses a 3.0-liter turbocharged engine that generates 362 Bhp and 750 Nm of peak torque.

All three engine options get a 48V mild hybrid system that offers an additional boost of 20 Ps and 200 Nm of peak torque. The SUV comes mated to an automatic transmission as standard. The power is sent to all four wheels using Mercedes’s 4MATIC technology. We are not sure which variant Sai Tamhankar has actually opted for.

Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut also bought a brand-new Maybach GLS600 SUV. Popular screenwriter from Bollywood Haarsh Limbachiyaa also bought a brand-new GLS SUV.
