Mercedes-Benz GLS (2019): At A Glance
Longer and wider than its predecessor and dubbed 'the S-Class of SUVs', the Mercedes-Benz GLS is one of the biggest SUVs on the market.
Like the BMW X7, the GLS is a seven-seater as standard, but buyers can opt for two seperate seats in the middle row rather than a three-person bench. The cabin is similar to the smaller GLE, with a pair of 12.3-inch screens giving access to the MBUX infotainment system - one in the centre of the dash, and the other a digital instrument display.
A variety of V6 and V8 engines are offered worldwide, but the engine line-up may be limited to six-cylinder diesels in Europe. The GLS 400d is combined with a nine-speed automatic gearbox, and offers 330PS and 700Nm of torque. Official fuel consumption is 37.2mpg and CO2 emissions are 201g/km.
Prices are yet to be announced - but expect it to be priced closely to the BMW X7, which starts at around £72,000. UK deliveries are expected from autumn.
