Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the new GLS, its most luxurious SUV that takes inspiration from the company’s flagship sedan, the S-Class. The company has made changes to the exterior as well as the interior with a view to inject a healthy dose of style and sophistication.
The front bumper and grille get a completely new design and Mercedes-Benz has replaced the tail lamps and bumpers with new units. Generous amounts of chrome are added to the roof rails, under guard, side trim that increase the luxurious appeal. There’s also the AMG line exterior that will get you specific front and rear aprons, side-running boards and 21-inch AMG light alloy wheels.
The interiors get the classic S-Class treatment, says Mercedes-Benz. All seven seats are draped in opulent leather that augment the spacious seating in the GLS. The central row of seats is flexible and features a ‘cargo’ position that liberates anything between 680 litres to 2,300 litres of cargo space. The three spoke multi function steering wheel is covered in Nappa leather and also gets an airbag cover.
Just like the S-Class, the GLS gets ambient lighting in three different colours. In addition, the GLS also gets the optional LED Intelligent Light System. The new GLS gets the latest COMAND infotainment system that includes an eight-inch colour media display. Mercedes-Benz also offers different colour-schemes for the interiors. The driver’s side cabin features AMG sports seats in Nappa leather, stainless steel pedals and instrument dials with a chequered flag look.
