A seven-seater luxury car with ample space and minimalistic design, the Mercedes-Benz GLS SUV 2020 is now bigger and better in both its size and features. It now has a new front grille which is more striking and is surrounded by multibeam LED headlamps which are made up of 112 LEDs (per lamp).

Another most-talked about feature of this latest Mercedes-Benz GLS SUV 2020 is its surround cameras which makes it easier to view areas one cannot locate in front of the car, thereby giving it a ‘looking through the bonnet’ feel. Across the expanse of the car, there are 11 USB ports and 2 wireless charging options, which is why the brand calls GLS the ‘Powerbank on Wheels’.
This luxury vehicle comes with BS6 compliant diesel and petrol options in the engine. Some of Its safety measures include park assist, active brake assist, 9 airbags, and downhill speed regulation (DSR).
