TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Mercedes-Benz GL may be an expensive way to haul the family around, but it has excellent driving manners and some very sophisticated safety technology, too. If you're looking for a luxury SUV with legitimate off-roading potential, vehicles like the QX80 fit your niche interests.
