With boundless serene majesty the GLS redefines the concept of comfort. Thanks to the numerous standard and optional equipment items available to it, this SUV embodies calm serenity in every situation.

The standard-fit AIRMATIC package including air suspension and ADS PLUS Adaptive Damping system, delivers great ride comfort both on- and off-road. The damping at each wheel adapts to the current driving situation, instantly and infinitely variably from more comfortable to sporty as required.

You can adjust handling your GLS perfectly to suit the situation at hand by turning the standard-fit DYNAMIC SELECT rotary switch. In addition to the four standard programmes, “Comfort”, “Sport”, “Ice” and “Individual”, the optional Offroad Engineering package offers you two more off-road programmes. In addition the Mercedes-AMG GLS 63 4MATIC also features the “Sport Plus” programme – with the chassis lowered by 25 millimetres and a particularly taut suspension setting. The characteristics of engine, transmission, suspension and steering are automatically adjusted in accordance with the drive programme selected. Your GLS thus gives you the best possible ride characteristics for each situation. And this is done with a simple twist of a rotary switch.

But not only the ride characteristics of the GLS are extremely comfortable. Travelling aboard it is pure enjoyment. Up to seven persons can enjoy a modern interpretation of luxury, such as the ionisation of the interior air, which significantly improves the quality of the air inside the vehicle. Enjoy a new lightness of being.

Virtually no other area inspires the Mercedes-Benz engineers to produce such consistently impressive results as the research into new safety technologies. They passed their first key safety milestone as early as the 1950s with the development of the passenger safety cell, invented by Béla Barényi. Today it is just one of many components of the integral safety concept which edges Mercedes-Benz vehicles ever closer to our vision of accident-free driving.

The availability of equipment depends on the engine and the configuration selected. You will find details in the equipment information for each model.
