The Mercedes GLS has an impressively punchy and smooth diesel engine, and its smart interior will comfortably accommodate seven occupants, but the build quality and ride comfort disappoint for a luxury SUV of this price. The 450d makes the most sense in AMG Line Premium Plus trim.

This is the entry level trim and it comes with plenty of equipment, including 22in alloy wheels, keyless entry and ignition, a head-up display, Burmester surround-sound system, ambient lighting, rear privacy glass, a panoramic glass roof, heated front and second-row seats and massaging front seats.

This is the entry-level petrol engine, with a 3.0-litre, six-cylinder motor producing 375bhp and 369lb ft of torque. It takes 6.1sec to accelerate from 0-62mph, before heading up to a top speed of 155mph. A nine-speed automatic gearbox comes as standard.
