The In-Depth 2021 Mercedes GLS 450 Review

Not much has changed in the 2021 Mercedes GLS 450. It is still the same luxury large SUV with a first-class interior and powerful engine. The new GLS 450 is built to deliver an upscale experience like no other in its class. This three-row SUV is made to give the whole family the most pleasurable ride time, pampering everyone in its deluxe and cozy cabin with generous space and standard high tech and safety features. With some exciting features like ventilated seats, four-zone automatic climate control, and 20-inch aluminum wheels, all standard, leasing the 2021 GLS 450 is a perfect gift for the whole family. Elsewhere, this Benz comes with a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six that gives 362 horsepower and benefits from a hybrid-assistance system. Other interesting standard features—an air suspension and all-wheel drive-also make every ride with the new GLS 450 smooth and rewarding.

Engine And Performance

Under the hood of the 2021 Mercedes GLS 450 is a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder that delivers 362 horsepower. It is mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission. Despite its size, this GLS provides a silky and smooth ride quality. Although the new GLS is not so sporty, it can easily take on any winding and bumpy roads without feeling overwhelmed. Thanks to its standard air suspension, hill descent control, and adjustable ride height, the 2021 GLS 450 gives a delightful ride experience.

Fuel Economy

While the 2021 GLS 450 doesn’t offer an impressive gas mileage, its EPA rating is still much in line with most SUVs in its class.  Its EPA fuel-economy estimate rating stands at 19 mpg in the city, 23 mpg on the highway, and 21 mpg combined.

Interior And Cargo

Although it borrows some of its interior styling from the new GLE SUV, the 2021 GLS 450 has by far the most lavishly outfitted and spacious interior than its preceding models. Its gorgeous cabin is well designed with top-notch materials and state of the art tech amenities that make this Luxury large SUV look like the top-tier luxury SUV it is. This Mercedes offers as much passenger and cargo space and even more than most of its rivals. With a seating capacity of up to seven adult passengers, all its three-row seats are much comfy and supportive. It’s also easy to get in and out of any row. The third row has enough space for adult passengers, which comes with much effort from other close rivals. To guarantee you experience the most delightful ride time, Mercedes has equipped the new GLS 450 with a new MBUX infotainment system.
