Is there only us who thinks Mercedes updates the GL-Class every six months? It definitely seems that way, and now they’re back with another update – and it looks slightly better (but only slightly). Mercedes-Benz knows it can’t compete with Land Rover on the aesthetics side of things – because, well, look at it – but they’ve managed to have a go at polishing a turd and it’s come up a bit better.
From ESP to downhill speed control, you get just about every gadget and gizmo available on a Mercedes, so at least you’ll be able to fiddle about with the buttons while everyone else looks at you thinking “that’s awful”.
If you enjoy being relieved of your every dime, there is a GL63 AMG version which does about a pint of fuel to the metre.
