The Mercedes-Benz GL SUV has received the S-Class treatment for its newest iteration, bringing a new level of luxury to the Mercedes-Benz GLS.

As a press release from the German marque today shares, the GLS is the “only full-fledged seven-seater in the European premium SUV segment,” and its revised design brings the model into Mercedes-Benz’s “new design idiom.”

A sportier, more aggressive fascia comes from the addition of chrome details on the roof rails, underguard, shoulder line trim strips and side skirt trim, while the rear is brought up to date through the addition a new bumper and tail lights. A new paint color has been introduced specifically for the GLS, further expanding customization options; owners can choose between standard and metallic finishes, with designo diamond white and designo hyacinth red as special edition colors, the latter exclusively available for the GLS.

The seven seats inside the GLS are all treated to updated luxury, with increased elbow, head and leg room and the ability to enjoy state-of-the-art infotainment systems. Ambient lighting comes in three color shades, the steering wheel can be either wood or leather and the air is improved in quality by an ionization system.

There are a few engine options available for those interested in the GLS, ranging from the 258 hp of the GLS 350 d 4MATIC’s diesel V6, to the 585 hp from the Mercedes-AMG GLS 63 4MATIC. Pricing for this model in the United States has yet to be announced, but the European prices are listed below, as are the equivalent amount in American dollars, according to the conversion rate at the time of publication:
