In Mumbai, the new GLS will be available at Shaman Wheels which has a set up of the modern facility at Kalina with a 7,200 sq. ft. showroom & a 15,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art workshop.

Called the ‘S-Class of SUVs’ — the GLS combines the lavishness of a luxury sedan with the go-anywhere capacity of a major SUV. On the design front, the capacity of a major SUV barring the new face and the refreshed tail section. Redesigns incorporate all-LED headlamps and tail lights, a new grille and different alloy wheels.

The new emphasis continues to be a seven-seater and comes stuffed with all the innovation one will ever require. It will get Mercedes’ COMAND infotainment system that comprises of a large, iPad-like screen positioned on the inside console. It capacities as the one-stop hotspot for sound, navigation, the reverse camera display, and different menus that help set the car up. Other additions include a new three-spoke steering wheel and Nappa Leather upholstery for all seven seats.

We anticipate Mercedes-Benz to launch the GLS in its ‘350d’ avatar. The 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine produces 255PS of power and 620Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a 9-speed automatic gearbox that channels power to all four wheels via Mercedes’ ‘4MATIC’ all-wheel- drive system. Considering the late expansion of the Delhi diesel ban,Mercedes may investigate getting a petrol controlled GLS too. The automaker might consider the GLS400 for India, that features the same engine that one would discover under the hood of the recently launched S400 saloon. We anticipate the prices will be knock up somewhat from the present levels, to around the Rs.80 lakh mark.
