Mercedes has unveiled the next-gen GLS, which is now bigger, more luxurious, has two new engines, and packs in an assortment of nifty features. Available in two trims, GLS 450 and GLS 580, these are among the largest vehicles in Mercedes SUV portfolio. All-new Mercedes-Benz GLS can easily accommodate up to 8 people, all while offering the best in comfort and luxury.
This time around, Mercedes has chosen to do away with the sharp lines on GLS, so as to give it a clean profile. This has also helped improve the SUV’s aerodynamics, which now has a drag coefficient of 0.32Cd. Edges too have been smoothed for a more rounded off appearance. Interiors are bathed in luxury, featuring leather-wrapped elements with classic white stitching and chrome accents.
Most prominent feature though is dual 12.3-inch screens that occupy almost 2/3rd of the dashboard. This may not look as grand as Tesla’s cascading touchscreen, but it’s certainly safer, as the driver does not have to take their eyes off the road. The screen directly in front of the driver functions as the instrument panel while the adjacent screen works as the touchscreen infotainment system.
All-new GLS has Mercedes’ proprietary MBUX system that supports touch and voice commands. It works well in most parts, but getting the system to interpret voice commands can be tricky sometimes. The other issue is with the third-row seating that does not have manual fold option. It folds automatically at the press of a button, but takes its own sweet time, which can be a bit annoying.
