Overall Score
Mercedes-Benz GLS 2018 4-door SUV
  • Road Test
    N/A
  • Predicted Reliability
  • Predicted Owner Satisfaction
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. Available safety equipment includes rear cross-traffic warning, blind-spot warning, and lane-keeping assist.
