New appointments, fresh body sections and an enhanced interior - the Mercedes-Benz GL is even more desirable. The first-class model among the luxury off-roaders boasts up to 5 percent lower fuel consumption figures and further enhanced environmental compatibility in the new model year: the entire model family now meets the EU5 emissions standard.

Updated bumpers, a redesigned chrome underguard at the front and rear, revised chrome tailpipes and the new radiator grille plus the fog lamps/daytime driving lights linked with chrome inserts make the expressive appearance of the GL-Class even more compelling. The 18 to 21-inch light-alloy wheels are also new.

The interior of the GL-Class will accommodate up to seven passengers with more than ample space and comes with leather/ARTICO man-made leather seats with contrasting stitching as part of the new model year. The standard specification of the flagship GL 500 includes nappa leather appointments. All the models feature new instrumentation, a multifunction steering wheel in nappa leather and crash-responsive NECK-PRO luxury head restraints for the driver and front passenger. An additional touch of style can be added to the interior courtesy of the optional two-tone leather appointments and indirect ambient lighting. Standard equipment on the premium off-roader also includes the innovative PRE-SAFE® safety concept. State-of-the-art assistance systems such as the Intelligent Light System (ILS) are also available as an option.
