Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the GL-Class model that can seat up to seven people which is really a great deal when it comes to space. Outside India, the GL-Class comes in four models which are GL63 AMG, GL450, GL350 and GL550. Each of these models comes with a different type of engine so customers can choose what appeals to them most. Both the GL350 and GL450 come with different engines yet they are identical in certain ways. The both have a self-levelling air suspension, LED active lamps, 19-inch wheels, automatic wipers, mechanical headlights, MB-Tex first-class vinyl upholstery, a sunroof, a power lift gate, a rear-view camera, back privacy glass, cruise control, power back quarter windows, heated power front seats which includes a four-direction lumbar adjustment, dual-zone programmed climate control, a power-folding third-row seat, an adjustable steering wheel and a load cover. Automated features include the command system plus Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio.

The car also comes with an HD radio, a six-CD/DVD changer, USB port, and an AUX audio jack. All these fantastic features are also available on the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class 550, which has 21-inch wheels plus adaptive interval dampers. The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class 63 AMG comes in 21-inch wheels and sporty-themed air suspension, upgraded brakes and wheels with automatic flexible stabilizer bars also called as the Active Curve System which is optional on other models. The GL-Class AMG model is more specific when it comes to styling as it has elements that are more detailed, high-tech and posh such as the neat, sports-class steering wheel. The GL450 and 550 are both compatible with an on-road and off-road package which includes anterior under body protection, adaptive interval dampers plus a six-mode land selector. There are other features that customer can avail on all Mercedes GL-Class models.

Safety Features

The stability control feature senses the vehicle’s condition by checking if the car’s handling limits are exceeded especially when the car runs at top speeds.

Front-impact airbags have been put in place for the driver and passenger’s safety during a frontal car smash. Side impact airbags are put on both the front and back seats to protect the chest or upper body safe during a side impact smash. The overhead airbags were designed to protect the passenger’s heads from serious injury during a side crash or a rollover.

For the lower body, knee airbags have been put in place to protect the lower extremities of the passengers in the occurrence of an accident. Aside from the airbags, pyrotechnic pre-tensioner seatbelts have been put on all standard front seats as well as on the outboard seats on the middle row and on the individual third-row seats. The seatbelts are fitted single-stage belt force limiters to electrically reverse the force in case of a high impact crash. Additional head protection is provided by the anti-whiplash head restraints to support the passenger’s heads to reduce the likelihood of a whiplash injury in case of an extreme accident.
