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. Price range: £71,430-£104,850 Our pick: GLS 350 d AMG Line (£71,430) En­gine: 3.0-litre V6 diesel, 258bhp Trans­mis­sion: 9-spd auto, per­ma­nent 4WD Top speed: 137mph Econ­omy: 37.2mpg CO2: 199g/km
