Luxury car maker Mercedes India Today launched its flagship petrol SUV GLS 400 4MATIC in India at the starting price of Rs 82.90 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The car replaces the GL500 that had not been very successful in the Indian market add only few buyers trusted on this offering. It had nothing to do with the quality of performance of the car rather it is the in practicality that came into play to refuse GL500 to get its share in the market. GLS 400 will be available only in one variant and is powered by 3.0-litre, v6 petrol engine capable of putting out 335 PS and 480 Nm of Max Power and max torque respectively. There is no light up in the low end torque and this is very big plus especially whenever you are driving in the congested City road traffic. Mercedes has made sure that there will be enough of the power across the band to provide enough drivability in all gears. The GLS offers its occupants class leading luxury experience that no other full-size luxury SUV can match in this segment. This is also the fifth SUV variant Mercedes introduced this year, further bolstering its SUV portfolio which remains the most comprehensive in the luxury car segment.
