‘S TO IMPRESS’

If you're looking for a luxury super-large 7-seat SUV from the 2016-2020 period, there's nothing quite like this 'X166'-series Mercedes GLS. Certainly, if you're a wealthy American considering it as a used car against obvious US rivals like Cadillac's Escalade or a Lincoln Navigator, then buying this Mercedes must seem like a no-brainer. This side of the Atlantic, it could also be seen as pretty simple choice, provided you're in the unusual position of wanting a huge seven-seat super-luxury SUV from this period that actually can properly seat seven adults - rather than five folk along with a couple of children.
A car that, having done that, can then go on to climb the lower slopes of Snowdon, before stopping by Sainsburys on the way to an evening at the Ritz. If a premium-badged 7-seat SUV that can manage all that is somewhere on your wish list, then you won't be disappointed with this one.
