Fitting for a luxury SUV that can cost more than $80,000, the 2011 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class has lots of standard convenience and entertainment features even in base trim.

For starters, every GL-Class gets power front seats; a power-fold feature for the third-row seat; a glass sunroof over the rear two rows of seats; a COMAND controller for climate, audio and navigation systems; Bluetooth; and an AM/FM/six-DVD changer. The diesel GL350 BlueTEC has 20-inch rims, and the GL450 gets 19-inchers. Leather seating is not standard on the GL-Class; Mercedes says it's because some owners want cruelty-free upholstery, so be sure to tick the pricey option box if you're shopping.

Most of those features are made standard on the top-flight GL550, which also gets 21-inch wheels and tires.

The options list is extensive. An iPod interface, HD and satellite radio, and a hard-drive navigation system can be fitted to the GL350 and GL450, and are standard on the GL550. A 610-watt Harman Kardon Logic 7 audio system with surround sound, and a rear-seat DVD entertainment system with twin 8-inch screens and wireless headsets, are recommended options since the GL-Class' seven-passenger seating means kids will be frequent riders. An off-road package imbues the GL450 with most of the off-road talent and underbody protection you'd get in the military-grade G-Class.

Other GL-Class options include a heated steering wheel and heated rear seats on the GL350 and GL450. Ventilated seats are offered, and we'd take them every time--they're a great add-on in warmer climates.


Conclusion

All 2010 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class utes have spiffy features on their standard-equipment list; we'd opt for the leather seating and the high-end audio.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
