Mercedes-Benz GLS Grand Edition Takes Luxury One Step Further

Mercedes-Benz has made the GLS even more luxurious with the launch of the new Grand Edition.

The GLS Grand Edition is essentially just a trim package available for the GLS 350d, GLS 400 and GLS 500 and consists of modifications both in the cabin and across the exterior of the huge SUV.

Inside, the Grand Edition incorporates designo nappa leather with diamond quilting and Budapest-design piping on the seats. The dashboard is also bathed in nappa leather and there are espresso brown velour floor mats and new ambient lighting. To receive these exclusive touches, owners will have to fork out 5,900 euros ($6,911).

From the outside, the GLS Grand Edition is distinguished from lesser variants with the 20-inch, 10-spoke alloy wheels with black and silver painted elements. Additionally, there are exclusive badges on the front quarter panels. The exterior package costs 2,300 euros ($2,693).

      This interior architecture is old, but I think it still looks classy, even if some of the carry-over switchgear isn’t too nice.

    Sure this is the sucker move, the new GLS will be released as a 2019. I’ll keep my 550 for one more year; thanks.

      I think it’s to test the market for a Maybach variant of the 2019 GLS.

    Mercedes:
    The brown colour is to dark it does not suit your cars. Works only in the sun!
