If you were to melt the entire Mercedes lineup into a single car, you’d get the AMG GLE 53 Coupe.

This 5,200lb beast blends the performance of the AMG GT with the hauling capacity of a non-spicy GLE, and even features a mild hybrid setup to keep MPG above 20. And I’m pleased to report that the Merc that does everything does everything pretty well; it’s sharp in the corners yet supple on road trips, and the stunning interior shouts “Maybach.”

With generous dealer incentives you can find one for well under MSRP, making it a hidden gem in MB’s lineup.
