Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The base SE model now comes with more standard equipment, including LED headlamps, a power-operated inner tailgate, lane-keeping assist, rear cross-traffic alert, and a new steering wheel with capacitive-touch button controls; a four-zone automatic climate-control system is now optional on the SE. The InControl Touch Pro infotainment system sees a few software updates and offers optional Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Upscale HSE and HSE Luxury models now come with a real-time wading-depth information system and a heated windshield is now available as a standalone option on all models.

Pros
Handsome square-jawed appearance,
upscale cabin,
superior off-road capability.

Cons
Thirsty gasoline engine,
clumsy on-road dynamics,
lackluster braking performance.

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

AMG, Maybach editions sure to come

Hefty curb weight
Hefty fuel consumption
Occasional cheap touch
