GLS SUV

Grand in every dimension. Especially depth of character.

The measures that matter.

The GLS is engineered and equipped to set the bar for 7-passenger luxury SUVs. Its legacy of leadership includes benchmarks like the S-Class sedan and iconic G-Class. And it's eager to lead your family anywhere in bold and brilliant style, from it LED lighting, to wheels from 20 to 22 inches, to a body that's at once muscular and aerodynamic.

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 High Performance headlamps cast brighter beams, and adapt to curves and oncoming traffic. And the wide taillamps include LED brake and turn signal lamps.
