The new GL-Class
April 10, 2012
The latest car reveal from Mercedes-Benz, the new GL-Class, seems to have all the bases covered. Marking a perfect balance between comfort, control, safety, style, efficiency and driving dynamics it has all the characteristics expected of an SUV and a whole load more.
In fact, Dr Joachim Schmidt, Executive Vice President Mercedes-Benz Cars, Sales and Marketing, believes that “the new GL-Class occupies the top position amongst the luxury SUVs. With its comprehensive assistance systems it has a pioneering role where safety and comfort are concerned, and is on a par with an S-Class – even off the beaten track.” His view is hardly surprising; the new GL-Class has been purposefully built for optimum comfort in both on and off-road environments and provides a spacious environment for all seven passengers.
The muscular styling and dynamic feature line down its flanks play testament to its powerful off-road credentials. Recognisable by its hallmark upright radiator grille the new GL-Class is the ambience of well-being and with a whole host of new safety features and enhanced handling, it is undoubtedly first class in all conditions.
