Mercedes GL Class
The new Mercedes GL-Class delivers the ultimate in refined performance for those with a discerning need for an SUV. It is more spacious, more feature-rich and with greater power than ever before. As if that was not enough, there are also increased safety enhancements from earlier models.
The new GL-Class has been given a design which is bold and crisp yet subtle; very much in keeping with the much-loved styling of previous models. Step inside, and the effort that has been put in is clear, with a contemporary feel throughout. Sensible designs for the dash and controls look excellent too.
With the on road-off road package available across the range, driving the GL on a long road trip down to the south of France or heading into the hills is not a problem. It handles like a dream wherever it is, with no body roll and the air suspension simply traverses the surface with ease.
Despite its large and comforting presence on the road, the new GL has actually been lightened, with aluminium and magnesium used throughout its design. The new seven-speed gearbox and start-stop features also increase the fuel economy significantly.
Practicality and safety
With an option for seven seats, the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class offers big families the room and space to travel in comfort. Third-row passengers can also be treated to an easy-entry option. The substantial safety enhancements include Collision Prevention, Brake and Attention Assist features.
