Mercedes-Benz GLS - the S-Class of SUVs


Like the GL before it, the new GLS is also setting standards in the world of the SUV as it confirms its position as the "S-Class among SUVs". The only full-fledged seven-seater in the European premium SUV segment boasts ample spaciousness and combines luxury with impressive levels of comfort, agile dynamics and also best-in-class safety. Whether put to everyday use or venturing off the beaten track - the GLS meets all requirements effortlessly and comfortably. Compared with its predecessor, the new generation features improved efficiency, extended DYNAMIC SELECT transmission modes, the latest evolutionary stage of the air suspension system AIRMATIC with enhanced damping system ADS, the nine-speed 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission, state-of-the-art assistance systems and the latest telematics generation with internet access.
More power, more dynamics and more equipment are also offered by the new Mercedes-AMG GLS 63 4MATIC. With a peak output of 430 kW, discrete suspension and the revised AMG SPEEDSHIFT PLUS 7G-TRONIC transmission, it represents the pinnacle of the GLS model series. Features which come as standard include the AMG DYNAMIC SELECT transmission modes which provide optimum flexibility and the rear-biased AMG Performance all-wheel drive. The GLS 63 4MATIC also shows strength of character with its updated design featuring the AMG brand look and high-quality interior.
A new dynamic exterior and a revised luxurious interior clearly underscore the impressive character of the GLS. With the model update, the designers have adapted the full-size luxury SUV to the current Mercedes-Benz design idiom. On the exterior, the focus has been placed on a redesign of the front end, while the rear has been modernised primarily in the area of the bumper and tail lights. Eye-catching highlights in the interior include the newly designed instrument panel with semi-integrated Media Display, the new 3-spoke multifunction steering wheel, the modified centre console with touchpad and also the new appointment colours and trim elements.
Once again the dimensions of the GLS bear witness to its full-size format, and form the best possible basis for providing its seven passengers with a generous amount of space:
5130 mm
1934 mm
1850 mm
3075 mm
New exterior design and equipment lines
The new GLS reflects harmony and modern luxury to impressive effect. Chrome-look details such as the roof rails, underbody protection, beltline trim strips, luggage compartment handle and side sill trim create attractive highlights.
Those after a sporty look can select the AMG Line Exterior, comprising specific front and rear bumpers, running boards, wheel arch flares painted in the vehicle colour and 53.3 cm (21-inch) AMG light-alloy wheels. Even more exclusivity is created with the Night Package which is available in conjunction with this design and equipment line.
