PRICE A roughly $2000 jump across the range has the GLS starting at $116,900 for the 350d and topping out at $217,900 for the AMG GLS63. TECHNOLOGY Apple CarPlay and a new more extensive range of driving modes. There’s also an optional “Off-Road Engineering” pack that can engage low-range transmission and centre diff and lift air suspension. PERFORMANCE A run to triple figures takes just 5.3 seconds. Fuel consumption is a claimed 11.3 litres every 100km, but it drinks more in real world conditions. DRIVING Adaptive damping does an impressive job of keeping the 2.5-tonne SUV level irrespective of pace. Ninespeed auto is near seamless once warmed up but can clunk on downshifts when cold. DESIGN Badging is the biggest real change but there are tweaks to the lights and bumpers front and rear. Interior updates include new infotainment screen, revised dash and steering wheel.
