The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class wraps up to seven people in luxury, and offers a pleasant ride with either diesel fuel economy or willing gasoline power. Better equipped and more expensive than ever, the 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser is an off-road beast that offers some on-road comfort for its likely suburban lifestyle.
