Drive experience with Mercedes-Benz GL class- Review

Have you been waiting for a luxury SUV from Mercedes-Benz? Kindly read further to know the features and specifications of Mercedes-Benz GL class SUV. In this article, I have discussed the performance, interiors, design and price of Mercedes GL class SUV.

Mercedes-Benz has always managed to keep their charm with their roll outs and it looks no different with their latest class release. The full size luxury SUV is nothing short of a complete car! Quality is the first thing that comes to your mind when you enter the SUV, simply because of the plush interiors and the comfort seating for all 7 seats. Equipped with a mighty powerful engine too, the GL class is sure to get some heads turning. The car has drawn comparisons with BMW X5 and rightly so too, the car does go close on specifications. So, how is the performance of Mercedes GL class? Let's find out the various GL class details in this article.
Front GL Class

Mercedes-Benz GL class design features

First things first, the car looks like a beauty. You would never have to explain what you are driving as the car is one of its kind. It is clearly bigger than any of its siblings and is even longer than the S class. Quite a good introduction, isn't it? The Mercedes-Benz GL class features are definitely styled with luxury in mind. The amazing amount of detailing really leaves you speechless and the sturdy figure bleeds good work. The bulge on the sides of the SUV go well with the overall design and you cannot really point out a drawback anywhere. It is longer, wider and taller and the predecessor, plus it is roughly 90KGs lighter too.


The interiors are well done and the dash board looks well designed. There is a trail of aluminium shine that stands out, but it is still maintained well. The seating is surprisingly convenient for a 7 seater. Do not recall a 7 seater being this comfortable all around. The designers for the car have been quite generous on the boot too with 295 liters with the seats intact. With the third row seats folded back, you get a massive 680 litres and if you fold the middle row, you get a whopping 2300 litres there – could you really have anything more to fit in there? And just for the record, this is more than the total capacity of the BMW X5, Audi Q7 or the Range Rover. Plus points for the GL Class here! To add to the luxury features here, you have electric heated seats, Bang & Oulfen Surround Sound system, Bluetooth connectivity and speakers, climate control, ABS, rain sensing wipers & the Mercedes COMMAND system as standard ones.


Mercedes-Benz has never stopped us from awe in the engine performance sector and it is pretty much the same here too. The turbo diesel engine is a beast to be frank. It is a seven speed torque converter that is powerful enough to push the GL 350 through 0 – 60 mph in just 8.3 seconds! There is no lag in any of the controls and the gear shifts absolutely perfect in the manual mode.
Side GL Class
Overall, the car is a peach. It is of course ear marked for the rich and the luxury oriented segment, but the car is worth it. The on road price of Mercedes GL series is roughly INR 80 lac and it stands up to the price. I am not discussing the safety aspect of Mercedes GL class car as Mercedes cars are known to provide some of the best safety features in the world. So, there is no change in that regard for this Mercedes SUV. It remains to be seen if the Mercedes fan base increases manifold because of the entry of this beast on the luxury car scene.
