Mercedes-Benz will launch the next-generation GLS in India on June 17, the company's top boss in India, Martin Schwenk, has announced on social media.
The upcoming flagship SUV, unveiled at the 2019 New York International Auto Show, retains the proportions of its predecessor while offering a longer wheelbase, a hi-tech cabin, and updated petrol as well as diesel powertrains.
The latest Mercedes-Benz GLS is over 5-meter in length and features an eye-catching front fascia with a chrome-covered grille, a muscular-looking bonnet with sculpted lines, and angular looking headlamps
On the sides, it is flanked by blacked-out B-pillars, roof rails, alloy wheels, and chrome highlights around the windows.
The new model also gets an increased wheelbase which will allow for more legroom.
Inside, the new Mercedes-Benz GLS offers a luxurious seven-seater cabin with a sunroof, automatic climate control, adjustable heated seats draped in leather, and a multifunctional steering wheel with capacitive touchpads.
It also offers a 12.3-inch digital instrument console, a 12.3-inch MBUX touchscreen infotainment panel for connectivity, and has an auto parking feature.
In India, the next-generation Mercedes-Benz GLS is likely to be priced upwards of Rs. 1 crore for the diesel model while the petrol variants are expected to be even costlier. Once launched, the vehicle will take on the likes of BMW's XL-sized X7 SUV.
