the design

The Mercedes GLS offers a very harmonious and modern design, through simple, distinctive and elegant lines, in addition to a large wide front grille and large LED headlights that show the size of this huge SUV.

In addition, it comes with attractive, large, sporty standard 21-inch wheels, with an option for giant 23-inch wheels proportional to the significantly larger fenders.

Cabin and Technologies

As for the interior, it suggests the spirit of luxury and luxury that we find in the iconic Mercedes S-Class sedan, as the GLS is synonymous with the sedan class, and you will notice this starting with the infotainment system that includes two double 12.3-inch screens for digital gauges and infotainment screen, with air-conditioning outlets.
