Why should I choose the GLS 450 4MATIC®*?

The legacy of Mercedes-Benz has now spanned across three different centuries and decades of top-notch achievements. You really can’t go wrong by choosing a Mercedes-Benz, and the GLS 450 4MATIC®* is the largest of them all. It tips the scales with an abundance of interior space for multiple seating configurations and passenger room. The GLS also comes in two other trim levels (GLS 550 4MATIC®* and AMG® GLS 63), so if the GLS 450 4MATIC®* doesn’t have enough power for you, you’ll have those two to look at as well. The GLS 450 4MATIC®* has a lot more standard luxury features than the X7, sporting popular Mercedes-Benz favorites like DYNAMIC SELECT® driving mode selector, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, Nappa leather seating, and available WiFi hotspot, and much more. BMW sports a luxurious interior as well, but it doesn’t offer all these.

If you’re serious about buying a new luxury SUV, you should go with the brand that has taken driving seriously since 1886. The legacy of the three-prong star evokes a sense of pride and craftsmanship, and that’s just what you’re getting in the 2019 GLS 450 4MATIC®*.
