Solution For Transporting 2 Bikes On A 2021 Mercedes AMG GLE 53 Coupe


Is Thule Outway best option for 2021 Mercedes AMG GLE 53 coupe if no trailer hitch?


Expert Reply:

Trunk-mounted bike racks are typically the next best option under hitch-mounted bike racks. The Thule OutWay Platform Trunk Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - Adjustable Trays # TH65JV has been used on similar vehicles and may work for your 2021 Mercedes GLE 53 coupe, however, it has not been confirmed to fit your vehicle so I do not recommend using it at this point in time.

There are not any trailer hitch receivers for your vehicle at this time so you cannot go with a hitch bike rack. Your last option is to install a roof rack which can accommodate a roof-mounted bike rack. For a roof rack I would go with the
Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars - Aluminum - Black - 53" Long - Qty 2 # TH711420 along with Feet # TH460R and Fit Kit # THKIT3152. This is a low-profile, aerodynamic system that provides a factory look since it sits flush with the roof.

Then you could install two bike racks such as the Swagman Race Ready Roof Bike Rack - Wheel Mount # S64705. I attached a couple demonstration videos for you to check out.
