The Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe is perfect for escaping dinosaurs... and probably other stuff too

The Mercedes-Benz GLE is a stylish, executive SUV with plenty of standard equipment.

IF I HAD the money I’d buy…

A car to help me escape the dinosaurs, save the world and get the girl/guy of my dreams. A car with outstanding off-road capabilities that can cope with the Jurassic terrain of the lush jungle of Isla Nublar. I’d buy a Mercedes-Benz GLE.

Why a Mercedes-Benz GLE?

The Mercedes-Benz GLE is a luxurious way to escape any attack by a monstrous Indominus Rex dino and thanks to its sleek coupe shape, you will be well protected from any pterosaurs attacks as they won’t be able to get a good grip.

With its thermatic automatic climate control you and your occupants will be kept super cool even under the most stressful of dino encounters.

If you do find yourself in a situation where an angry escaped ferocious hybrid dino is in pursuit, you can rest assured that the Mercedes-Benz GLE is the safest place you can be thanks to its Pre-Safe system of passive and active features that help to identify critical handling situations in advance and initiate preventive measures for occupant protection in the event of an impending accident.

But sure, look, Chris Pratt will be along shortly to guide you to safety, although you could just turn on the sat-nav and make your way to the resort yourself.
