Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class

Expert Rating

3.3 (Good)

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

It's apparent on first blush that the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class exudes a certain sophisticated class. It emanates from the upright profile, richly endowed interior, and a trio of available powertrains that deliver power with the smoothness of Kenny G's saxophone. If the Cadillac Escalade is too gaudy and the Lexus LX 570's spindle grille is too alarming, the GLS-Class provides the Goldilocks combination of elegance and conservatism that buyers of discerning taste will no doubt appreciate.
