The upcoming new generation Mercedes-Benz GLS luxury SUV has been listed on the company’s official India website. Slated to be launched in India later this year, the company is currently trying to gather interest through its website and has stated on the website that the new GLS is coming soon. While we were expecting to see the SUV at the 2020 Auto Expo, Mercedes-Benz India did not have it on display, which means new GLS will make its India debut only at the time of its launch.
