The all-new 2021 GLE-class is back and badder than ever. Based on the new Mercedes-Benz GLE-class SUV, these high-performance models bring a higher level of luxury along with fire-breathing engines.

Pros
Two excellent twin-turbo engines,
truly luxurious interior,
unique air-suspension abilities.

Cons
Awkward-looking coupe variant,
coupe reduces practicality,
heaviness reduces responsiveness.

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
