GLS SUV

All kinds of strength.

The pinnacle of space and comfort is only to be found in the new GLS.

INNOVATION:

Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive.

In the rush hour, during a long drive at night or on an unfamiliar route, your GLS noticeably takes the strain out of driving, particularly in stressful situations. It’s all down to a concept that makes every journey in a Mercedes-Benz a safer and exceptional experience: Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive. Because the time you spend behind the wheel is your time. Time for relaxation. Time to replenish your energy. So that, first and foremost, you reach your destination safely, but are also relaxed when you get there.

EQUIPMENT HIGHLIGHTS – DRIVING ASSISTANCE SYSTEMS

The Driving Assistance package Plus offers maximum comfort and safety on the road to autonomous driving. To supplement the Driving Assistance package you receive Active Stop-and-Go Assist, which ideally takes the strain off you on motorways. A further benefit of this package is PRE-SAFE® Impulse Side, which can provide additional protection in side collisions caused by other vehicles.

 The innovative PRE-SAFE® Sound system generates a sound signal through the loudspeakers that can trigger a protective reflex: your auditory system briefly disconnects, thereby protecting itself from the loud noise of a crash.

Optimum parking service on board. Active Parking Assist with 360-degree camera makes it easier for you to find a parking space and to manoeuvre into and out of parking spaces. Here the choice is yours: park with ease yourself thanks to all-round visibility – or make things even easier still by getting the car to park for you.
