The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLS takes the “sport” component of “sport utility vehicle” more seriously than most. Its biturbo engines and 4MATIC® all-wheel drive system ensure you don’t have to sacrifice driving fun even with a large family-friendly vehicle.
The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLS lives up to everything you have heard about Mercedes luxury, from the exquisite interior material quality to the beautiful exterior design. The SUV grabs your attention with its sleek profile, holds it with glistening chrome and satin silver details, and even after it has passed from sight the expressive headlamps and bold power-dome hood continue to linger in your mind. Inside is a rich amalgamation of leather, aluminum and an astonishing variety of wood trims, including Burl Walnut, Natural Grain Brown Ash, Eucalyptus, Anthracite Poplar and Black Piano Lacquer.
Technology is a given in any Mercedes-Benz vehicle, but the 2018 GLS puts an extra emphasis on the kind your family will love. The centerpiece is the Rear Seat Entertainment system, which comes with wireless headsets and remotes as well as a DVD player, ensuring your kids will never again ask how long it will be before you get to your destination. A built-in Wi-Fi system also comes standard, providing high-speed internet connectivity even while on the go. More importantly, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLS is chock full of advanced technologies designed to keep your family safe, such as Active Lane Keeping Assist, which prevents unwanted drifts into other lanes, and Active Brake Assist, which can detect an impeding frontal collision and automatically apply the brakes to help avoid it.
The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLS draws power from response V6 and V8 biturbo engines that use advanced Direct Injection and multispark ignition technologies to deliver maximum performance. 4MATIC® all-wheel drive is standard, providing improved traction while cornering and accelerating — particularly in low-grip conditions — and the nine-speed automatic transmission, also standard, ensures the SUV’s considerable power is delivered as smoothly and quickly as possible. Add to this AIRMATIC® suspension, shift paddles and the DYNAMIC SELECT® functionality, which lets you choose between several driving modes, and the GLS quickly makes you forget you’re at the wheel of an SUV and not a high-performance sports coupe.
The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLS was clearly created for active families that need a lot of space and technology, and parents that value safety and the handling dynamics you’d normally expect of a much smaller vehicle.
