Reassuring Safety Systems for the Road

The 7-person interior of the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS is protected by a host of standard and optional safety systems – some of which are new for MY17. Replacing COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS® is Active Brake Assist, which provides maximum stopping power to help you avoid a collision. Also new for MY17 is optional Distance Pilot DISTRONIC® – a radar-based cruise control system that stops and accelerates your vehicle semi-autonomously. The standard rearview camera lets you reverse and parallel park in confidence, while optional MAGIC VISION CONTROL® uses heated blades to keep the windshield crystal-clear.

Shooting for the AMG® GLS 63 gets you a wealth of standard driver assist systems, including the following:

  • Active LED headlamps with Adaptive Highbeam Assist
  • Active Blind Spot Assist
  • Active Lane Keeping Assist
  • Active Brake Assist with Cross-Traffic Function
  • Parking Assist with Parking Pilot

Spacious, Luxuriously Crafted Cabin

Housing three rows of seating, the GLS sets the bar for both space and luxuriousness. Standard Eucalyptus wood trim accents the dash and four doors, while optional Exclusive Nappa leather upholstery ties in high-contrast double top-stitching for a truly opulent interior. The higher-tier trims tack on multi-contoured, heated, and ventilated front seats, as well as a panorama roof for fresh air and a view. The new Remote Start feature for thembrace® app lets you power on the engine and multi-zone climate control system from your smartphone. Meanwhile, the power liftgate can be opened and closed via a switch on the driver-side door panel, proving easy access to the GLS SUV’s 94-cubic-foot cargo area.

High-End Infotainment for a Stress-Free Drive

Smart and ultra-modern, the cabin of the Mercedes-Benz GLS offers everything you need for a comfortable journey.

In-cabin functions, such as Bluetooth®*, audio system, and optional navigation, can be controlled via the Nappa leather-wrapped steering wheel or optional voice control system. Available for each GLS trim, a harman/kardon® Logic 7®** sound system dishes out 830 watts of sound via 13 speakers.

  • COMAND® hard-drive navigation
  • Smartphone Integration with Apple CarPlay®
  • Multi-color ambient lighting
  • SiriusXM Radio with a 6-month All Access trial
