The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS is now 77 mm longer and 22 mm wider and comes with a 60 mm longer wheelbase

Now, we drove the new-gen Mercedes-Benz GLS last year in the US and have already told you a fair bit about the SUV. As if the massive footprint of the previous GLS was not enough, Mercedes-Benz has made the new one even bigger. The new-gen GLS is now 77 mm longer and 22 mm wider than before, and it also comes with a 60 mm longer wheelbase, which has aided in offering more cabin space, especially for the second-row passengers. On that note, it's also worth mentioning that the SUV for the first time comes with the option of a six-seater cabin, with luxurious captain seats for the second-row passengers.
