Passenger & boot space
How it copes with people and clutter
There’s masses of space for the front two occupants in the Mercedes GLS. What’s more, the second row lets three adults sit side-by-side comfortably, there’s little danger of their knees brushing the seats in front, and head room is superb despite the GLS featuring a panoramic sunroof as standard.
The GLS also offers third-row passengers easier access and more knee room than they get in the Audi Q7 or Volvo XC90, although six-footers will still want to encourage those in the second row to slide their seats forward a bit. But no matter which seat you’re sitting in, you’ll enjoy as generous an amount of space as you would in the cavernous BMW X7.
