Following yesterday’s unveiling of the new Mercedes GL at the New York International Auto Show, Mercedes released the first promo video of the car. So check it out in motion, bearing in mind that the new GL-Class is one of the best-equipped, most practical, and, if you go for the diesel, most economical 7-seat SUVs you can buy later this year.The new styling changes are also good, making the car easier on the eyes.
Innovations such as the standard-specification Crosswind Assist, the STEER CONTROL steering assistance system, the load recognition and the COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST (CPA) increase active safety. Other new features to become optionally available are assistance systems such as Active Lane Keeping Assist and Blind Spot Assist, together with a parking package incorporating an automatic function for entering and exiting parking spaces, plus a 360° camera. With excellent driving dynamics and high levels of ride comfort – both on the road and on difficult terrain – the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class pampers its occupants with the first-class comfort of a luxury saloon. Seven passengers can enjoy an excellent amount of space. Numerous BlueEFFICIENCY measures significantly increase the energy efficiency: the GL 350 BlueTEC 4 MATIC diesel model, for instance, returns 38 mpg on the combined cycle
