Team OVERDRIVE recently drove the new second generation India bound Mercedes-Benz GLS SUV in the USA. The SUV is expected to be launched in India by the second quarter of 2020. The updates in the second generation include a new platform, new engines and better off-road capabilities.

The new platform has increased the length by 77mm and the width by 22mm, also, the newer platform offers an increased wheelbase by 60mm. The SUV has a drag co-efficiency of 0.32.

To aid the driver, the GLS features a Wash mode that folds the ORVMs, rolls up the windows and sunroof, turns off the rain-sensor, switches the climate control to air circulation mode and turns on the 360-degree camera to assist while driving through a car wash.

The cabin features two 12.3-inch screens in the front row - one for the all-digital instrument cluster and the other for the infotainment screen that will feature MBUX (Mercedes Benz User Experience). The second row gets two 11.6-inch screens. The second row can be had with an option of two captain seats as well.

The petrol variant will be offered with an in-line six 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged petrol engine that's good enough for 367PS and 500Nm of torque. The petrol engines are mated with a 48-volt mild hybrid system. The diesel will see a 3.0-litre in-line six on offer as well and will have a power output of 330PS and 700Nm. The engines will be mated to a nine-speed gearbox.

The second generation GLS will rival the BMW X7 that is scheduled to be launched in India next month.
