Mercedes-Benz has introduced the new generation GLS, which is the German luxury auto major’s flagship and largest SUV model. The Mercedes-Benz GLS has been endowed with a new design language, which makes it at par with the new generation Merc SUVs. The new GLS flaunts a sleeker and smoother flowing styling replacing its sharp features and creases. Nevertheless, it still retains the upright and aggressive SUV stance of its predecessor.
The new-gen Mercedes GLS is not only sleek, but aerodynamic as well. As per the company, the styling and aerodynamic enhancements have decreased the drag coefficient of the new GLS to 0.32Cd and will help in wind noise reduction at high speeds.
The all new GLS is based on Mercedes' Modular High Architecture platform similar to its smaller sibling GLE. The usage of this new platform has also made the SUV larger in dimensions. The SUV is now 5,207 mm long, 1,956 mm wide and comes with a longer wheelbase measuring 3,135 mm.
