Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The BMW X6 has powerful engines and a luxurious, high-tech cabin. You’ll forgo some space and practicality versus a BMW X5 though, and spend more doing it.

Pros
SUVs don’t come much quicker
Fantastic infotainment system
Impressive interior quality

Cons
X5 equivalent has better rear headroom
Audi RS Q8 is easier on the eyes
Smaller boot than every alternative

By:

The X6 M enters the 2021 model year with only the smallest of changes. The list of standard features grows with the addition of Android Auto and a one-year subscription to SiriusXM satellite radio with 360L. However, the M's roster of standalone options has been shortened with the elimination of night vision with pedestrian detection, the rear-seat entertainment system, and the satin aluminum roof rails and exterior trim. BMW also changes the Competition designation from a model to a package.

Pros
Transcendent SUV performance,
stocked with popular standard features,
sumptuous cabin space.

Cons
Compromised rear visibility,
rough ride on some roads,
pricier than the more practical X5 M.

By: 
caranddriver.com

For 2021 Now available with Android Auto smartphone integration.Minor changes to feature availability and option packages.

Pros
Massive power from its turbocharged V8
Impressive handling performance
High-quality interior packed with features

Cons
Stiff and sometimes unyielding ride
Distinctive styling limits rear headroom and cargo capacity
Compromised rear visibility

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class is a three-row crossover SUV that redefines luxurious family transport.

Pros
Sublime demeanor
Posh interior
Strong turbocharged engines
Impressive dynamics
AMG, Maybach editions sure to come

Cons
Hefty price
Hefty curb weight
Hefty fuel consumption
Occasional cheap touch

Sitting atop the Mercedes-Benz SUV hierarchy is the spacious and indisputably luxurious GLS-Class. It's all new for 2020 and it has big shoes to fill—we've named the outgoing GLS-Class to our 10Best Trucks and SUVs list for three straight years—but our first impressions of this new big Benz are very good.

Pros
Tech-rich cabin, spacious in all three rows, refined powertrains.

Cons
Anonymous styling, fussy infotainment system, heavily optioned models carry high price tags

By: 
caranddriver.com

New styling in line with other Mercedes SUVs.Powerful mild hybrid powertrains.Standard adjustable air suspension.All-new third GLS generation launched for 2020.

Pros
MBUX infotainment is outstanding
Tops in comfort and easily seats adults in all three rows
Flexible cargo capacity
Responsive powertrains feel like driving a smaller SUV

Cons
Not as off-road-worthy as some rugged competitors
Somewhat vague steering with large wheels and thin tires
MBUX has a steep learning curve
