The GLS. In its element on any terrain.
As large as life.
The sky is the limit
With its select fittings such as a black radiator grille with chrome trim, black painted exterior mirror and dark tinted glass from the B-pillar backwards, the Night package gives expression to the vehicle's inmistakeable and sportily expressive character in classy high-gloss black. It builds on the elements of the Style, Urban and AMG Sport design and equipment lines and enhances them with additional or other elements.
The elements of the Night package at a glance:
The Exclusive package represents a classic interior at a very high level of quality combined with an entire range of exclusive equipment features which are traditionally associated with luxury-class vehicles. The carefully put together combination of high-quality appointments, such as the seats in leather upholstery with contrast stitching and the 3-spoke leather steering wheel with perforations in the grip area, results in an interior of the highest quality.

The AMG Exclusive package satisfies the wishes of the most demanding customers. The carefully put together combination of high-quality appointments, such as the RED CUT black leather upholstery and the dynamically styled instrument cluster, results in an interior of the highest quality and projects an image of exclusivity and sportiness.

The Dynamic Handling package comprises sports suspension with lowering function of 15 millimeters and a Direct-Steer system with speed-dependent steering support and variable steering ratio. It boosts driving dynamics through sportier and more dynamic handling in bends and improved driving stability at higher speeds.
The sports suspension is fitted with harder front and rear axle springs. The Direct-Steer system ensures precision handling and reduces steering requirements considerably - for example, on tight bends or when reversing into a parking space - through a more direct ratio. On the other hand, straight-line stability at high speeds is particularly good. In this way both vehicle agility and steering comfort are improved. The power assistance is provided electromechanically and increases in line with speed.
The Light and Sight package improves the visibility of the vehicle and increases the high-class appeal of the interior.
The elements of the Light and Sight package at a glance::
The Mirror package includes electrically folding exterior mirrors. The interior mirror and driver’s side exterior mirror also dim automatically. The exterior mirrors are electrically folded in and out again using a button within easy reach of the driver.
An automatic function can be programmed via the multifunction steering wheel so that the exterior mirrors are folded in automatically when the vehicle is locked. The mirrors fold out again when the vehicle is unlocked and the driver’s door is opened. Both the interior mirror and driver’s-side exterior mirror feature sensors which measure the light intensity on the mirror compared to the ambient light. If a significant difference is detected between the two values, the mirrors are automatically dimmed.
The Lane Tracking package assists the driver in arriving safely and stress-free at his destination. It comprises the assistance systems of Lane Keeping Assist and Blind Spot Assist systems. The combination of these systems significantly enhances safety and ride comfort.
Lane Keeping Assist can warn the driver if the vehicle begins to leave its lane unintentionally. A series of three vibrations of the steering wheel, imperceptible to the other vehicle occupants, serves as the warning signal. The system can recognise manoeuvres during which the driver leaves the lane intentionally - when cutting a corner, for example - and will not issue a warning unnecessarily.
The Seat Comfort package improves seat comfort on journeys of all lengths, even longer ones, by providing the seats with more options for ergonomic individualisation and for adjustment to the desired seat position. The package includes height adjustment for the front-passenger seat and seat cushion inclination adjustment for both front seats as well as a specific seat design.
The Stowage Space package provides a variety of organisational aids. It comprises a spectacles compartment in the overhead control unit, a stowage box under the front seats, luggage nets on the driver and passenger seat backrests, in the rear footwells and to the right and left in the luggage compartment as well as under the parcel shelf. The package is rounded off with a practical 12-volt socket in the luggage compartment.
The standard-specification Non-Smoker package replaces the ashtray in the centre console with a 12-volt socket and a convenient stowage compartment.
The Smoker package provides two conveniently positioned ashtrays and a cigarette lighter in the vehicle. The cigarette lighter also serves as a 12V socket. The package takes the place of the front and rear stowage compartment.
The Anti-theft alarm system (ATA) with tow-away protection and interior monitoring can emit a warning in the event of theft and unauthorised entry, as soon as the system is activated via remote control.
