2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS exterior profileE-ACTIVE BODY CONTROL®

Having a quality suspension allows your vehicle to be more agile and reduces driver fatigue. This here is a fully-networked hydropneumatics active suspension that combines with an air suspension, and the end result is individual wheel movement for excellent agility and versatility.

Fully-variable 4MATIC®

You may be familiar with the conventional 4MATIC® all-wheel drivetrain system, which enhances traction and stability. This drivetrain system is more versatile, allowing torque variation from 0 to 100 percent between the front and rear axles. This will allow for even better control in poor weather conditions.

Difference between Mercedes-Benz AMG® and non-AMG® vehicles
