Talking about the Mercedes GLS, some might consider it as “the oldest” in its class. However, now you might have to think again because the car manufacturer has decided to bring the GLS a revolutionary change in exterior and interior with the latest special edition named "Mercedes GLS Grand".
Let’s take a look at its exterior first. The GLS Grand Edition is equipped with 20-inch alloy wheels accompanying with a 10-spoke glossy black design. On the body, the GLS is available in certain colors and Mercedes also decorates the GLS's front fenders with compulsory badges to emphasize that it is not the original GLS. You can buy the exterior package separately at the price of €2,300 (P137,371) in Germany.
