Mercedes-Benz Managing Director and CEO Roland Folger at the launch of the Mercedes-Benz GLS


German luxury carmaker Mercedes-Benz has launched an upgraded version of its seven-seater sports utility vehicle GLS 350d in India priced at Rs 80.40 lakh (ex-showroom Pune).


"India has growing penchant for SUVs and at 100 per cent growth achieved in 2015, it was the highest growing segment for us," Mercedes-Benz Managing Director and CEO Roland Folger said.


The model would be assembled at the company's Chakan based manufacturing facility, he added. Folger said the GLS has contributed to the success of the company's SUV portfolio in a significant way.  "India has also emerged as one of the top ten markets for the GLS globally," he added. This is the company's fourth model launch in the country out of the 12 planned for this year. 


Under the hood of the new GLS 350d is a powerful 3.0-litre, V6 diesel engine.The exterior of the GLS with the new radiator grille has the brand's three pointed star transition smoothly into the two horizontal louvres and thereby emphasizing the value appeal and the lines of the entire front. This detail is a hallmark trait of all SUV models from Mercedes-Benz. The modern headlamp layout borrows from the GLE and GLE Coupe. The bonnet features two power domes and highlights the powerful appearance of the GLS.


Inside the cabin, GLS 350d has a new heated 3-spoke multifunction nappa leather steering wheel with steering wheel gearshift paddles, 12 function keys and an airbag cover in nappa leather, instruments with modified details as well as a redesigned instrument panel with semi-integrated colour Media Display. The latter offers an even better experience of the vehicle functions thanks to photo-realistic displays of images and graphics. A unique and first ever feature that enhances the environment inside the GLS is the Apple CarPlay.
