Read the What Car? Mercedes GL-Class review×4/summary/25549-3

There’s space and comfort for seven, and the engines are refined and have strong performance. It’s very stable at high speed

High prices and running costs even for a big car, and its sheer size makes it cumbersome around town. Rear visibility is impaired by the headrests on the third row of seats.

Mercedes-Benz GL-Class 4×4 – What Car?

4 thoughts on “Mercedes-Benz GL-Class 4×4 – What Car?”

  1. Look at the size of the vehicle?.

    Despite the review being about a decade ago, so let's "fast forward".

    With an outlay that's not far off the entry level Range Rover (£75,000+), the car is definitely good enough to challenge the British/Indian vehicle.

    Even if I'm rolling in cash, I'm more likely to choose a used Volvo XC90 : it might not go off road like the other two, however the XC90 does very much like the two aforementioned cars – albeit on a different level.

    Absolutely nothing against the other cars I mentioned.

  2. That V6 diesel's mileage is actually pretty good. My family's front wheel drive minivan/MPV runs on petrol and gets 30 mpg, but could only dream of that mileage if it had all wheel drive.
