The optional active roll stabilisation ACTIVE CURVE SYSTEM uses active anti-roll bars on the front and rear axle and reduces the roll angle of the body during cornering. Better driving comfort both when cornering and on straights and extended off-road capabilities are also part of the advantages of the ACTIVE CURVE SYSTEM.
Comfortable, sporty or entirely individual suspension settings can be called up with the DYNAMIC SELECT Controller on the centre console. Harmonious and efficient driving is made possible by the “Comfort” transmission mode. “Sport” is characterised by a sportier configuration of the suspension, and sportily taut damper settings, along with more directly responsive steering and modified shift points. The “Slippery” transmission mode provides optimised handling on wet or sand covered roads, while “Individual” allows precise configuration of the various parameters to suit the driverʼs wishes.
Night-time vision is improved by the standared fitted LED Intelligent Light System, new to the GLS, while adverse weather conditions resulting in impaired visibility are defused by MAGIC VISION CONTROL, the heated adaptive windscreen wiper system which provides optimum water distribution. The washer fluid is sprayed directly in front of the wiper blades and wiped away without delay.
