2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS450 Review


big luxury SUVs are essentially giant land gaps but sometimes it’s the little practicalities that separate the useful ones from the rest mercedes-benz cls-class has plenty of just those now the GLS class replaces the gl-class SUV essentially a refresh a light refresh on that model three rows of seats seven seats total no captains chairs available in the second row but check out how Mercedes facilitates access to the third row here you just press this button here on the second our test car head restraints automatically release downward and the seat powers into this sort of tumbled forward position back even if the front seats are too far backwards they power forwards to provide enough clearance and when you put the seats back up a power back to their original position there’s like four or five different things that all had to happen in tandem for this to work out and it’s kind of cool that they do just by you pressing one button speaking of that third row very very roomy adults could sit back there comfortably and lots of vents here there’s been up here up here in the second row there’s mint on the b-pillar there’s events in the back of the center console essentially lots and lots of airflow your kids if they’re getting sick it’s not for lack of air probably shouldn’t have ordered them to fish the little convenience has extended the back if you need to convert from space for people to space for cargo power-folding receipts here now those are very common in a lot of SUVs but most of them you have to hold down the button while the seat really slowly powers not so on the GLS one-touch they go down very easily here they also come back up with one-touch you can even shut the tailgate it all happens at the same time you don’t have to hold the buttons down pretty cool now both sides SUV can leave the captain with some pretty big blind spots but fortunately the GLS is second and third row head restraints fold completely into the seats that’s particularly uncommon for the second row and a lot of 30 SUVs clears out a nice view straight out the back nice big rear window and usable second and third row windows really clear up good visibility as you’re looking over your shoulder here finally a 360-degree camera system here in our test car pretty well stitched together images for sort of that bird’s eye view very good graphics and nice dynamic markers one of the more useful systems we’ve seen but like any app the GLS class has a few weeks in it for starters the side mirrors and way too small another issue Mercedes habit of gradual lag prone acceleration is definitely alive and well here and our test car suspension allows a lot of body motion over a quick elevation changes broken pavement stuff like that finally it’s really inexcusable that any SUV that starts at close to seventy thousand dollars would charge you extra for real leather our test car here at the fake stuff it’s called mb text and it’s pretty obvious you didn’t get leather still this boat is both quiet and capable with all the cargo and towing credentials you’d expect for a full-size SUV just watch the price all those conveniences are nice but if you go full steam ahead on options it could put your budget in stormy seas thanks for watching click here for more videos and here to subscribe to our YouTube channel

  1. I think a cheaper option for just the first row to have real leather would be a great idea in larger family SUV if they could match the color/textures. Artificial leather would hold up a lot better and be easier to clean with the kids in the rear seats.

  2. I think Leather as an option is preferable. I prefer my vehicles not in Leather. Leather is nice when you first own a vehicle, but degrade in quality over time unless you spend a lot maintaining it.

  3. my parents bought a Gla 45 amg 2018 and we got this car as a loaner. we got this car with a destroyed door. the car is a 2018 with 600 miles, sad to see it drestoyed

  4. Had to take the Escalade over this because of the luggage space that really lacks when it comes to a big family. Make it the size of a full size escalade or suburban and you will have my $$$ in the future. Also this thing has the same ground clearance as a mini van.
