Kern stated, “2013 is the ‘Year of Offensive’ for Mercedes-Benz India and we are very excited to present the all new GL-Class to our valued customers as part of our product offensive. Exclusivity and dynamism are two of the most enigmatic features of an ultimate SUV and the GL-Class represents them. We have already succeeded with the new M-Class and now the introduction of the new GL-Class will further strengthen our dominance in the luxury large SUV segment. The GL-Class with its proven off-roading prowess and luxurious appointments exudes the Absolute Supremacy statement during on and off-road situations and is ideal to suit the taste of the growing number of off-roading aficionados in India.”
