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.
