Newest model proves the more, the merrier

Those looking for a large and luxurious SUV, look no more.

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS SUV is hitting the market with a common theme: More bells and whistles really can make a good vehicle, great. The automaker calls it the “S-Class of SUVs,” and for good reason. The newest offering possesses more space, more comfort and more luxury.

The exterior features larger dimensions — 205.2 inches in length and 77 inches in width — than its predecessors. A longer wheelbase inside the vehicle offers a more spacious cabin, especially when it extends into the second row. Speaking of seats, three fully electronic and adjustable seat rows increase space and comfort for any passenger. You can even hide the seats in the third row to add more trunk space, or fold down the second-row seats for more overall room.

Other standard feature highlights include a 12.3-inch multimedia display, navigation, a Burmester sound system, 64-color ambient lighting, inductive wireless charging, satellite radio, a 115-volt outlet, nine USB ports and an LED-intelligent system for both headlights and taillights, among other things.

In terms of what is new, in addition to the aforementioned features, includes a pair of new engines. First, the Mercedes-Benz GLS 580 utilizes a 4.0-liter, V8 bi-turbo engine with EQ boost and a 48-volt onboard electrical system. The GLS 450 utilizes a 3.0-liter, inline-6 turbo engine with EQ boost and a 48-volt onboard electrical system.

Other new features are as follows: E-Active Body Control, 4MATIC all-wheel drive, the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) with voice control, power domes on the hood, and an enlarged panorama roof with 50% larger viewing area. The vehicle even has a Carwash function that “prepares” the vehicle for much-needed washes.

Comfort and style exemplifies the newest GLS SUV offering

In case you thought all the newest features of the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS SUV — which is available at Holmes European Motors — have been listed, think again.

Other features that will indulge passengers of all ages include: an executive rear seat package that allows passengers to work the MBUX for their own comfort and entertainment, with their own tablet; an easy-entry function that allows for passengers in the third row to exit the vehicle easier; heated seats and separate chargers for the third row seats; and a five-zone automatic climate control that is available on the GLS 580 model.

“The GLS combines modern luxury with the character of an off-roader,” said Gorden Wagener, chief design officer at Daimler AG. “Powerful highlights of the off-road design idiom combined with an elegance reminiscent of a classic luxury sedan. The interior is a synthesis of modern, luxurious aesthetics, hallmark SUV practicality and digital high-tech. In our view, the new GLS, therefore, offers the best of all these worlds.”

Mercedes-Benz has come a long way since 1997 when the company first started making SUVs in the United States. The full-size GL was introduced in 2006, and this newest model is sure to turn more heads.
