Considering that the latest reports about this full-size SUV are full of spy shots of the next generation, it seems pretty clear that the 2019 Mercedes GLS will be the last year model to represent the current generation. Therefore, we don’t expect to see too many changes. This SUV is still full of strong points and definitely has lots of things to show. Well-built interior, handsome styling, and powerful engines are some of the things that most customers find deciding when they have to choose between this and rival model. All in all, the 2019 Mercedes GLS will continue in the same way, and the biggest possible changes are those in terms of colors and few more standard features.
2019 Mercedes GLS Design
Without any doubt, the 2019 Mercedes GLS will continue to be one of the strongest competitors in the class. It is a well-balanced SUV which, besides the company’s famous high level of quality, offers great driving characteristics, amazing handling for the size and overall driving experience. Of course, there is a very attractive styling, which definitely looks up to date, so we could presume that the upcoming redesign definitely won’t bring radical changes in this aspect.
How big is the Mercedes GLS?
When it comes to 2019 Mercedes GLS dimensions, this is a huge SUV. It features around 202 inches in length, 76 in width, and almost 73 inches in height. A wheelbase goes around 121 inches and these are dimensions that definitely guarantee lots of space on the inside, as well as plenty of cargo space.
2019 Mercedes GLS Interior
The 2019 Mercedes GLS interior will be strong in so many ways. First of all, count on plenty of space. Generous leg and headroom guarantee a high level of comfort for all passengers. The cargo area is also pretty impressive. Of course, it can’t compete with long-wheelbase versions of models like Lincoln Navigator and Cadillac Escalade, but the volume is still pretty amazing. There are around 16 cubic feet of space. Once you fold down second and third rows, you can count on impressive 96 cubic feet of space, which is enough to put pretty much everything.
However, the most impressive thing about the 2019 Mercedes GLS’s cabin will be its quality. Attractive layout in a combination with top-quality materials definitely provides that upscale feel, even if we consider the competition. Of course, there is an impressive list of standard features as well. Even in the most basic version, you can count on a sunroof, as well as on things like 8-inch display, USB, Bluetooth etc. Of course, you can upgrade the list with things like smartphone integration, Wi-Fi hotspot, COMAND infotainment system etc.
