The New Benz Large Suv... The X166 Gl450 — Mercedes Benz revamped it's larges SUV (barring the G-Class) , the GL-Class in 2013, and I must say that they have done a fabulous job at it. Indeed, the exterior styling is subject to individual taste, but never a great fan to MBZ (Mercedes Benz) SUV designs, this new GL design has caught my heart. Not only is it very handsome, it is large, seats 7 passengers (excellent if you have a big family or extended family), rides comfortably, and even goes off-road with adjustable air suspension. It features a 4.7 Liter TwinTurbo V8 that produces 362/5000 HP and 406/1000 TQ, which isn't the most powerful for a heavy SUV but plenty enough for everyday driving and hauling the family. You can indeed feel the 5401-lb (2450 kg) curb weight when driving it, meaning that it does really handle like an SUV. I wasn't expecting this car to handle like a sports car; however, the BMW X5 definitely handles a lot better and is more fun to drive. The car we have has an optional video entertainment system with two video screens in behind the headrests of the driver and front passenger's seat, enabling the rear passengers to watch DVDs and listen to music, which is great if you have people in the backseat who gets bored on long-trips easily. One thing I really like about this car is that it has an automatic folding 3rd row seats; at the press or pull of a button, the two 3rd row seats folds down or raises themselves automatically, saving us from the trouble of climbing over the car and pulling the levers. Overall, this is a great looking car with great functionality, and if you're in the market for a luxury SUV that hauls 7 passengers comfortably, definitely do consider this MBZ GL-Class!

Sports Car / Suv Hybrid — This SUV is extremely fast for what it is (7 passenger, 3 row seating). It rolls zero to 60 in 5.1 seconds. It is also state of the art when it comes to technology (Brake Assist, Lane tracking, Blind Spot Assist, etc.

Primary Use: Commuting to work
