Mercedes-Benz is a prominent luxury car brand, so its products sell at higher price points than those of other manufacturers. The GL starts at $64,000, but consumers get a lot of foul-weather bang for their buck, including heated front seats, dual-zone climate control and power-folding third-row seats.
Options include a heated steering wheel, night vision assist and three-zone climate control. But how does it drive?
"The standard 3.0-liter diesel engine manages 26 highway miles per gallon, despite the GL's large dimensions and portly curb weight," Brauer said. "The luxurious GL comes standard with all-wheel drive and all-weather confidence."
