The reason that the GL-Class was renamed as the GLS is because Mercedes-Benz wanted to have an SUV equivalent to its popular S-Class sedan segment. As you may know, the S-Class is one of the best sedans on the road, which is exactly what the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS will strive to be in the SUV category. It does this with a stunning design that incorporates many styling aspects from the S-Class, which makes it a head turner no matter which road it is heading down.

Every 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS will come standard with the popular 4MATIC all-wheel drive system, as well as the AIRMATIC suspension, which adapts the vehicle's suspension settings to the ever changing road conditions. A DYNAMIC SELECT system also comes equipped to the 9G-TRONIC transmission, which allows the driver to select the driving mode that fits them best. Other features that drivers will enjoy include the adaptive cruise control, the COMAND system with an 8-inch central screen, navigation, and a rear-seat entertainment system.
