95. MERCEDES GLS
THE GLS is intended to be the 4x4 equivalent of the S-class limousine, and at 5.2 metres in length, it’s just about as long as the luxury saloon.
It’s equally luxurious inside, too, while those vast dimensions mean there are seven full-sized seats on board, each with legroom to spare.
As with other Mercedes 4x4s, there’s a mad AMGtuned GLS 63 flagship, but the standard diesel is nearly as quick, just as well specced inside and cheaper to run.
