Reviewed

The gigantic Mercedes-Benz GL 4x4, sold from 2006 to 2012, is a proper off-roader that also competes in the luxury car class. It even has seven seats to transport the whole family or indeed a seven-a-side team. How good is it compared to the Range Rover and other full-size SUVs? Find out in our full road test review.
