Comfort, safety, elegance, efficiency – the new Mercedes-Benz GL-Class is a clear leader in all key SUV disciplines. Active safety is enhanced by innovations like the standard crosswind stabilization, STEER CONTROL, self-leveling and COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST (CPA). Also new are assistance systems like Active Lane Keeping Assist and Active Blind Spot Assist, or a parking package with automatic parking function and a 360° camera. With excellent performance and ride characteristics both on-road and in rugged terrain, the GL-Class cradles its occupants with the first-class comfort of a luxurious sedan. There is ample space for up to seven passengers. With that Mercedes-Benz continues the success story of the GL: its predecessor is number one in its class in the U.S.
Extensive BlueEFFICIENCY measures deliver significant efficiency improvements. The GL 350 BlueTEC 4MATIC consumes 7.4 liters of diesel fuel per one hundred kilometers, marking a 20 percent reduction compared with the previous model and undercutting future European emissions legislation laid out in the EU 6 standard. Fuel consumption for the GL 500 4MATIC BlueEFFICIENCY with an output of 300 kW (408 hp) is down by 18 percent.
