Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class Full-size Luxury SUV

Whether put to everyday use or venturing off the beaten track – the GLS meets all requirements effortlessly and comfortably. The only full-fledged seven-seater in the European premium SUV segment boasts ample spaciousness and combines luxury with impressive levels of comfort, agile dynamics and also best-in-class safety.

The portfolio now ranges from the compact GLA through the new bestselling GLC, the successful GLE family, the GLE Coupé and GLS, right through to the mainstay of all Mercedes-Benz SUVs, the G-Class.
Luxury at the forefront. In all three rows.
Heated power front seats. A second row that reclines. And a power-folding third row with adult-sized comfort. No matter where you take a seat in the GLS, the GLS takes you to a place where leadership is omnipresent: in roominess, in refinement, and in its rewards. Available innovations range from massaging front seats to a vast Panorama roof.
Lighting that’s designed to get noticed.
Expressively elegant headlamps draw more than admiring eyes: their LED Daytime Running Lamps help other drivers take notice of your approach. Available active LED headlamps cast brighter beams, and adapt to curves and oncoming traffic. And the wide taillamps include LED brake and turn signal lamps, and “twin torch” LED running lamps.
Large side doors and innovative EASY-ENTRY 2nd-row seats welcome up to seven adults to three rows of luxury seating, including a spacious third row. The standard power liftgate, power-folding third row and 60/40-split second row accommodate up to 93.8 cubic feet of cargo. In any configuration, the GLS has an extraordinary capacity to satisfy.
Instant response, lasting benefits.
Responsive V6 and V8 biturbo engines make more power torque from less gasoline, with advanced Direct Injection and multispark ignition that self-tune every few milliseconds. Along with as many as nine paddle-shifted speeds, DYNAMIC SELECT lets you choose a driving mode to match your mood, from Comfort to Sport or even one for slick surfaces.
Rewarding handling, reassuring control.
Standard 4MATIC® all-wheel drive instantly sends power to the wheels that can use it best, inspiring confidence in any season. The 4-wheel AIRMATIC® suspension adapts to changing roads and cargo loads, enhacing driving control and passenger comfort. Innovative options include the roll-taming ACTIVE CURVE SYSTEM and a rugged Off-road Package. 
Commanding performance, crafted by hand.
There’s simply no other 7-passenger SUV like it, from its handcrafted 577-hp biturbo V8 to its exquisite Nappa leather. Its AIRMATIC®-based AMG Sport Suspension and ACTIVE CURVE SYSTEM tame corners. AMG Performance 4MATIC® expertly sends its 561 lb-ft of torque to all four 21- or 22-inch AMG® wheels and brings SUV performance to a pinnacle. 
A team of advanced technologies boost safety, reduce stress, and help to smooth every move. Radar-based Active Brake Assist can help you avoid a collision. Innovations help fend off crosswinds and prepare for front, rear and rollover accidents. Available Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC® cruise control can even guide you with Active Steering Assist.   
Reaches far and wide, brings it all home.
The available COMAND® system’s big 8-inch central screen unites entertainment, navigation, driving systems and vehicle settings with clear, colorful animated menus and an intuitive touchpad controller on the console. Choose from two custom-tailored audio systems crafted expressly for the GLS: one by harman/kardon® and one from Bang & Olufsen®.
First-rate enjoyment for 2nd-row passengers.
A pair of sizable and sharp flat screens behind each front head restraint give your 2nd-row passengers a front-row seat for DVD movies, game play and more. Multiple inputs, two remotes and two DVD players let passengers enjoy themselves individually or together, with audio played via two wireless headsets or the GLS sound system.
