The designo Line brings more luxury into the equation with designo nappa leather upholstery featuring diamond pattern quilting, heated steering wheel, heated and cooled front seats, four-zone climate control, interior air ionisation with filter and temperature-controlled cup holders. An Active Curve System is also present that helps reduce body roll in mid- and high-speed bends as well as axle articulation when going off-road.

The GLS 350d draws power from the 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine that produces 258 hp of maximum power and 620 Nm of peak torque. The engine is paired to the 9G-TRONIC 9-speed automatic gearbox sending drive to all wheels. The CO2 emissions figure has been brought down to 199 g/km from the previous 209 g/km.
