“Kuwait is the last stop in the re­gional road­show, which has been well re­ceived across the GCC. The new GLS lounge con­cept re­ally invites vis­i­tors to come and im­merse them­selves in the emo­tional ex­pe­ri­ences of a GLS 500, as well as its phys­i­cal and tech­ni­cal side,” said Michael Ruehle, Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer, A.R. Al­bisher and Z. Alka­zemi Com­pany. “This is a ve­hi­cle which em­bod­ies el­e­gance, qual­ity and ex­clu­siv­ity and can switch ef­fort­lessly from ev­ery­day driv­ing to of­froad ex­plo­rations, mak­ing it the per­fect choice for fam­i­lies and ad­ven­ture seek­ers alike - so we en­cour­age peo­ple to come and visit the Lounge to en­joy the full ex­pe­ri­ence for the short time it is on of­fer.”

Be­ing the full-fledged seven-seater in the Mercedes-Benz SUV range, the GLS boasts am­ple spa­cious­ness and com­bines lux­ury with im­pres­sive lev­els of com­fort, ag­ile dy­nam­ics and also best-in-class safety. A new, dy­namic ex­te­rior and re­vised, lux­u­ri­ous in­te­rior clearly un­der­score the im­pres­sive char­ac­ter of the GLS, with de­sign­ers adapt­ing 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 tail­lights. 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.

The pow­er­ful GLS 500 4MATIC with V8 biturbo en­gine fea­tur­ing di­rect in­jec­tion now gen­er­ates 455 hp, some 20 hp more than the pre­ced­ing model, and at a max­i­mum torque of 700 Nm com­bines out­stand­ing per­for­mance with the high level of mo­tor­ing com­fort of th­ese en­gines.

The Mercedes-Benz GLS 500 dis­play will be lo­cated in Dome Three of The Av­enues Mall on Thurs­day 27th and Fri­day 28th Oc­to­ber 2016.
