The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.8
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Mercedes-Benz GL Class is a pricey way to go, but it's a luxury family wagon with great fuel economy and road manners, and some thoughtful new safety and luxury features to boot. A luxurious SUV with limited appeal, the Lexus LX 570 isn't quite at home on the range, or on the interstate.
