The GL-Class Off-Roader
The adaptive headlamp system (standard with GL 500, otherwise optional) adapts automatically to the driving situation. Featuring variable-control headlamps with five functions (country mode, two-stage motorway mode, extended fog lamps, active light and cornering light functions), the Intelligent Light System ensures improved vision and consequently enhanced safety.
BlueEFFICIENCY includes a series of efficiency-enhancing ideas, such as intelligent energy management, improved aerodynamics and tyres with low rolling resistance. Vehicles such as the GL 350 CDI 4MATIC BlueEFFICIENCY consume less fuel but do not compromise on performance, safety or comfort.
The GL 350 BlueTEC already meets future Euro6 emission limits. The designation BlueTEC stands for the world’s most advanced diesel technology: a multi-stage exhaust system processes the exhaust gases essentially into water, nitrogen and carbon dioxide, thus completing their full combustion cycle.
The interior of the GL-Class is shown in a new light with optional ambient lighting. A narrow band of light fed by LEDs extends along the four doors and the instrument panel. Its effect is to create a pleasant lighting mood on board, which enhances comfort during night journeys and enhances the sense of space in the vehicle interior.
Individualisation of the GL. Distinctive through its contrasts, the interior creates a harmonious and refined impression. The roof lining, dashboard and footwells are all in black. The light tone of the seat upholstery offers a refreshing contrast. The interior optional extras are entirely in fine leather.
