At Mercedes-Benz Retail Group we appreciate and understand the importance of quality. This approach sees the new 2016 GLS muscle past its rivals with unparalleled luxury, versatility and performance. The GLS offers the choice of a relaxed or sporty driving experience, but should you leave the tarmac behind, the GLS has impressive off-road capabilities.
Whether you’re in the city, on the motorway, taking the road less travelled or better yet, the road never travelled, the GLS is supremely agile and assured. The advanced 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission delivers a smooth, quick gear change delivering optimum efficiency and responsiveness. This means that you have the power you need in an instant, well-suited for those compromising situations both on and off road.
Meanwhile, the DYNAMIC SELECT system offers a choice of driving modes to suit your preferences and the conditions you find yourself in. The GLS also comes as standard with AIRMATIC air suspension and Adaptive Damping, ensuring the car glides around corners and the ride is as comfortable as possible.
Venture into tough terrain and the new GLS rises to the challenge. The 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive works in tandem with the DYNAMIC SELECT Slippery and Off-road modes to handle the most difficult conditions. The 100% differential lock maximises traction while a low-range gearbox aids controlled descents, or when slow, careful maneuvering is required.
Uneven, rough terrain is no match for the GLS either, with an impenetrable engine under guard, reinforced paneling along the length of the vehicle and the ability to adjust the ride height, you can navigate just about any terrain effectively.
The exterior of the GLS is dramatic, its proportions emphasise the car’s formidable performance, with striking design elements such as a reworked twin-louvre grille, 21-inch AMG alloy wheels and privacy glass, adding to the modern look of the GLS. Inside, fine quality materials and finishes create an atmosphere of effortless style. The GLS has space in abundance, comfortably seating seven adults with an impressive boot capacity of up to 2,300 litres. Perfect for family vacations, work trips or a weekend with your friends.
COMAND Online includes a Media Interface, intuitive touchpad controller and a large 8-inch tablet-style screen, housing a CD/DVD player, DAB radio, on-board internet access and navigation with 3D map display; perfect to keep you informed and your passengers entertained throughout the journey. For music lovers, the new Apple CarPlay™ and a stunning Harman Kardon® Logic 7® surround system will provide you with the perfect soundtrack for your drive. The GLS truly offers you everything you need and more.
Of course, some things have to be experienced to be truly appreciated, which is why we’d like to invite you for a test drive at your local dealership.
