As standard, the new GLS is equipped with ATTENTION ASSIST. This feature can monitor the steering behaviour of the driver to recognise typical signs of drowsiness and give a visual and acoustic warning of impending microsleep, improving safety, especially on long journeys and at night.
COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS.
Fitted as a standard, COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS gives the driver a visual warning if the distance to the vehicle in front or a stationary obstacle is too short. On detecting the danger of a collision driver braking can be assisted, if the driver fails to react the speed can be reduced autonomously.
PRE-SAFE® occupant protection system.
The optionally available PRE-SAFE® occupant protection system is able to identify critical driving situations in advance and to initiate precautionary measures to protect the car’s occupants if an accident appears imminent. Such measures include reversible belt tensioning or automatic closing of open side windows, for example.
The EXCLUSIVE Interior line.
The select appointments of this line create a trend- setting interior which reinterprets the meaning of luxury to exciting effect. The interior concept features tasteful colour combinations, while large areas of trim, for which a variety of wood finishes can be selected, create further visual highlights. The multi-coloured ambient lighting creates a refined ambience in the vehicle interior.
The designo Exclusive package.
The designo Exclusive package impresses with exquisite materials and high-quality details. The comfort seats at the front in fine designo nappa leather feature a distinctive seat design with exclusive diamond quilting. Together with the dashboard and door centre panels, also in designo nappa leather, they set fine highlights in the vehicle interior. A colour-coordinated designo roof liner and the twin sunblinds in DINAMICA microfibre as well as the designo floor mats edged in designo leather also contribute to the vehicle’s high-class appeal.
The optional AMG Line Exterior gives the GLS even more dynamic and muscular flair, a consequence above all of the distinctive AMG body styling - which comprises off AMG-specific front and rear aprons, wheel arch extensions in the vehicle colour and side running boards. The wheels are AMG 5-twin-spoke or multi-spoke light-alloy painted titanium grey and with a high-sheen finish. Sports brake system with perforated front brake discs and brake calliper trim with “Mercedes-Benz” lettering.
The AMG Line Interior, available separately, comprises sporty highlights coordinated to match the exterior with sleek and well honed interior detailing. Highlights include Sports seats in black pearl nappa leather or black leather. A 3-spoke multifunction sports steering wheel finished in black nappa leather. Brushed stainless-steel sports pedals with rubber studs and an Instrument cluster featuring distinctive dials.
The Night package.
Building on the AMG Line Exterior, the Night package underscores the sporty, expressive character of the vehicle with striking design elements in black. The louvre in the radiator grille and the simulated underguard at the front and rear are finished in high-gloss black. Further highlights are the AMG 5-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels, the black exterior mirrors and the dark-tinted heat-insulating glass from the rear door windows. The roof rails, window weatherstrip and the black beltline trim strip round off the Night package.
Navigation, telephone, audio, video, internet – with the optional control and display system the driver has direct access to these and many other functions. Information is shown in high resolution and in colour on a 20.3 cm (8.4-inch) media display. Controlling the system using the new touchpad with multi-touch sensor system is easy and intuitive.
Surrender before such seating comfort.
The optional multicontour seats with massage function ensure the best possible seating comfort for driver and front passenger. Driver and front passenger can use various air chambers to adjust their seats individually to their personal physique – from seat cushion depth via the side bolsters to the position and curvature of the backrest. A lumbar adjustment gives added support to the spine. The massage function with seven zones and two selectable intensities prevents muscle tension.
Large as ever. Versatile as never before.
With a capacity of up to 2300 l, the load compartment of the GLS is the largest in this segment. The load space behind the second seat row is 680 l. The standard-fit EASY-PACK tailgate, the 60 : 40 split folding rear seats and the headroom of 1.95 m below the open tailgate make the load compartment exceptionally versatile and allow easy loading and unloading.
