The new GLS distinguishes itself from its predecessor with sporty, visible tailpipe trim elements, a new range of wheels and a variety of exterior packages, including an AMG Line and Night Package. Chrome accents and trim emphasise its elegance and optional running boards give it a rugged character. Form follows function with stylish daytime running lights and tail lamps.

The interior’s design concentrates on detail, resulting in understated luxury and class-leading comfort. New colour concepts, a new-look dash and an impressive high-quality media display are just a few of the refinements introduced in the new model.
