The heart beat of a new generation
For what's coming up
Ready for any adventure
The GLS. In its element on any terrain.
As large as life.
The sky is the limit
The optional continuously variable AUTOTRONIC automatic transmission recognises your personal driving style and adjusts the rpm accordingly. Using the selector lever you can also manually change the virtual gears – for even sportier driving.
With the sandwich design, in the event of a front impact the engine and transmission are able to slide away along the angled pedal floor below the passenger compartment. This reduces the risk of injury to occupants.
The rear bench seat (which splits 1/3 : 2/3) can be folded forwards as standard. Fold down the rear seats and in next to no time you have a totally flat, extended load area. You can also lower the height of the load compartment floor by 8.5 centimetres – for even more load capacity.
