Besides enormous? The exterior is a little square for this reviewer’s tastes but when you have this much sheer bulk to manage I’m assuming curves might be out of the question.
It’s still, of course, a Mercedes and the design team has integrated signature elements like the front grille and their own brand of flashy sophistication into the GLS body, resulting in a car that is the size of a big off-roader, but a luxe version.
Inside is lovely and you can immediately sink into the leather seats and relax: you have arrived in a Mercedes and it will handle everything from here.
There is genuine wood trimming along the dash and centre console, the steering wheel is leather and feels lovely to hold onto, there are brushed metallic buttons, air conditioner vents and door handles.
It comes with customisable ambient lighting in 64 colour choices (that you’ll pay for, but hey, you’ve come this far) that looks amazing at night.
And it has a giant sunroof that goes all the way to the back and takes s-e-c-o-n-d-s to open because it’s so big. It lets loads of natural light into the car while shielding occupants from the sun.
