The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
6.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLS takes an old-school tack to modern-SUV design, and it works. The 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser is a conundrum: it’s way better on-road than its off-road credentials suggest it should be, but that doesn’t mean it’s for everyone.
