The top-tier SUV models from Mercedes-Benz, namely the Mercedes Benz GLS and Mercedes Maybach GLS 600 4MATIC, have received a makeover that includes various design, technology, and equipment updates. One notable change is the revamped radiator grille featuring silver shadow galvanized louvres.

The front bumper now sports integrated air inlets for a more striking look, while the rear lights have been redesigned with three horizontal blocks. Additionally, a new 20-inch wheel option has been introduced.

Inside, the 7-seater GLS has been enhanced with interior tweaks including the availability of the trim element MANUFAKTUR, previously exclusive to the Mercedes Maybach GLS 600 4MATIC.

The updated MBUX infotainment system introduces a fresh display design that can be customized in various styles (classic, sporty, discreet) and offers three modes (Navigation, Assistance, Service).

Distinctive features of the Maybach model include vertical chrome bars, 'Maybach' lettering on the grille, and ambient lighting with a Mercedes Maybach pattern projection.

According to Mark Raine, co-CEO of Mercedes-Benz South Africa, the latest GLS and GLS Maybach embody the epitome of luxury in the SUV market, blending the iconic G-Class DNA with opulent comfort for both drivers and passengers.
