We love a good unveiling here at Best Mercedes Deals.

So when the new Mercedes-Benz GLS – the facelifted version of the GL-Class SUV – was given the big reveal ahead of its 2016 release, our appetites were most certainly whetted.

Sitting above the GLE (the old ML) in the now fully revamped range, the Mercedes GLS is exactly what an SUV should be – big, bold and beautiful.

Changes to the exterior are subtle but add a touch of extra class.

  • Revised chrome grill featuring oversized three-pointed star.
  • Refreshed bumpers.
  • New light clusters.
  • Newly styled wheels.

There’s been a few changes to the interior as well.

  • Free-standing touchpad style infotainment and navigation system.
  • Tweaked air vents.
  • Three-spoke multifunction steering wheel.
  • New upholstery options.

 For the moment, Mercedes is still only offering the two engine options in the UK GLS range. The GLS 350d  V6 diesel gets 254bhp and 620Nm of torque, and is now hooked up to a nine-speed auto.

The top engine is the Mercedes-AMG GLS 63 delivering 577bhp – 28bhp more than its predecessor – with 760Nm of torque. Official economy and emissions claims won’t be available until early 2016.  

Buyers can also specify the GLS comes with an upgraded Dynamic Select system that offers up to six driving programs including Comfort, Slippery, Sport, Individual, Off-road and, in models equipped with the off-road package, Off-road Plus. What more could you want from an SUV?
