As we all know the GLS, formely known as GL, is considered to be the S-class of SUV’s since its inception from 2006. It has been succeeded through the two successive generations, internally named as X164( the first generation) and the X166(the second generation). And now! it’s the turn for the third incarnation.
We already made several rendering and spyshots updates related to the upcoming generation of GLS. However, every enthusiasts are in a higher level of curiosity to see the car in its pure form. And for the sake of its novelty, we got the car revealed in flesh ahead of its official launch in NYIAS 2019. Thanks to the members of GermanCarFourm for their wonderful contribution in this.
The new generation GLS inherit many design elements from its younger sibling, the new GLE, however it keeps the 7 seater large SUV trademark in its own way. By looking at the dimensions of the car, it would definitely considered to be the largest SUV in the Mercedes lineup. For sake of this, the interior room is improved remarkably.
The exterior design of new GLS is really striking, the large front grille with 3 point star integration, the newly designed LED headlamps, the muscular bonnet domes were absolutely make a macho appearance at the front fascia. upon the rear, the newly schemed tail lamp makes a distinctive stance at the rear compared to the previous model.
on the interior, the GLS has lot of things to counter with its rivals. The increase in the overall dimensions made the car more roomy. The new infotainment screens looks similar to the 12.3 inch touch screens as seen in the GLE, however we need some sort of citations for the interior packages that Mercedes about to provide in this car. The air vents, interior equipment control buttons are designed according to the new terminology as we seen in the GLE. The second row seats now offer a factory fit infotainment screen and an adjustable seat patterns as we seen in the S-class. It is said that, the car may avail either in a 7 seater or a 6 seater layout according to the customer demand.
Furthermore, Mercedes has already confirmed the possibilities for the Maybach iteration of GLS. so, we have to expect an ultra luxury interior treatment with much powered motors to the GLS very soon.
India is considered to be a potential market for the GLS, so we soon expect this car to be available here after its world launch at the NYIAS 2019. Stay updated with us for the further updated on this iconic SUV.
