Mercedes' seven-passenger SUV, the GLS, was recently freshened, gaining revised interior and exterior styling, a nine-speed automatic, an upgraded air suspension, and the addition of the current, and more complex, Mercedes-Benz infotainment system. Our last tested version was plush and quiet, with supportive seats and a third-row seat that was roomy enough for adults.

Mercedes-Benz GLS Road Test

Mercedes' seven-passenger SUV, the GLS, was recently freshened, gaining revised interior and exterior styling, a nine-speed automatic, an upgraded air suspension, and the addition of the current, and more complex, Mercedes-Benz infotainment system. Our last tested version was plush and quiet, with supportive seats and a third-row seat that was roomy enough for adults. It had a steady and comfortable ride, but the GL proved to be very clumsy when pushed to its handling limits. Engines include a 362-hp, 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 and a 4.7-liter V8 that puts out 449 hp. The flagship AMG GLS63 churns out 577 hp. Automatic emergency braking is standard, but blind spot warning and lane keeping assist are optional.
