The new Mercedes-Benz GLS

The S-Class of SUVs The new GLS is Mercedes-Benz’s largest and most luxurious SUV that offers more of everything: more space, more comfort, more luxury.

The confident presence of its exterior stems from its impressive dimensions, which are even larger than those of its predecessor while the interior impresses with luxurious appeal and enhanced comfort.

One of the benefits in having a 60 mm increase in wheelbase is interior spaciousness, especially in the second row. The three fully electrically adjustable seat rows offer all passengers a generous amount of space and seating comfort.

The seats in the third row can be lowered into the floor electrically to increase the boot space (up to 2400 litres), while the seats in the second row fold flat. The new GLS is the embodiment of the premium SUV segment and once again reaffirms its positioning as the “S-Class of SUVs”.
The E-ACTIVE BODY CONTROL active suspension on 48-volt basis offers outstanding suspension comfort, agile handling and a high degree of off-road capability. Like the GLE, the GLS features the latest generation of Mercedes-Benz driving assistance systems giving cooperative support to the driver. The new 4MATIC ensures great agility on the road and strong performance off the beaten track. The new GLS has impressive aerodynamics in its segment, with a Cd figure of 0.32. It has a new carwash function, which makes it possible to prepare the car to enter a carwash at a single touch of a button.

As the S-Class of SUVs, the new GLS indulges its passengers, especially those in the rear.

The key comfort features at a glance:

 MBUX Rear-Seat Entertainment System: Two 11.6-inch touchscreens for movies, music and internet enjoyment

 Rear Comfort Package Plus: Separate tablet for controlling all MBUX comfort and entertainment functions from the rear. The tablet is integrated into a luxury centre armrest. Further components of the package: expanded centre console between the front seats and luxury head restraints with adjustable side bolsters

 Electrically adjustable seats throughout as standard, as is the EASY-ENTRY function, which makes it easy to get into and out of the third seat row

 Simple folding of all rear seats at the touch of a button

 Three-seat bench in the second row

 Two fully fledged seats in the third row (for people up to 1.94 m tall)

 Heated seats and separate USB charging ports also for the third row

 Five-zone automatic climate control available.

At present, Mercedes-Benz offers seven models in the SUV segment (GLA, GLC, GLC Coupé, GLE, GLE Coupé, GLS, G-Class). The SUVs are a major structural pillar in the Mercedes-Benz product portfolio, and greatly contribute to the growth of the brand.
