    Ideal balance between traction, driving dynamics and driving safety.

    With 4MATIC all-wheel drive, the differential lock and special off-road drive programs, the all new GLS is equally impressive in both easy and difficult terrain. The torque on demand (single-speed) transfer case with fully variable torque distribution to the front and rear axle boosts traction on grass, gravel and easy off-road terrain for enhanced driving safety. In addition, you can call up an animation of the driving situation on the media display to view the gradient or inclination angle, for example.

It additionally features off-road drive programs for easy and difficult terrain and an extended underguard to provide the underbody with outstanding protection in off-road terrain and to keep dirt and moisture away from the engine compartment.

Head-up Display


The head-up display projects information directly into your field of vision.

The head-up display allows you to keep your eye on all important information at all times in the new GLS. This is made possible by projecting a roughly 24 x 8 cm image into your natural field of vision which appears to hover around two metres above the bonnet. This means your attention remains focussed on the traffic at all times.
