Comfort and Convenience in the 2018 GLS 450 4MATIC®

There are so many similarities between these two it may make you wonder why the LX is so much more expensive. Here’s the thing though: even in areas where the two seem nearly identical, the GLS 450 4MATIC® still finds a way to edge it out. In the comfort and convenience sector, for example, the Mercedes-Benz full-size SUV really shines. It comes with an available front power lumbar massage feature, which gives front seat occupants a relaxing way to end a rough workday or start a long road trip. You may even find yourself going into the garage just to sit in the GLS 450 4MATIC® and get away from life’s stressful moments. The LX doesn’t offer that, but maybe when you remember how much more you paid for it you’ll rest easy sitting on an extra $20,000.
