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:

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
