2010 Mercedes GL

2010 Mercedes GL

The Mercedes GL is another example of platform sharing and the SUV is based on the Mercedes R-Class, which in turn is based on the Mercedes ML. While the R-Class is a crossover aiming to deliver versatility and utility, the ML is a SUV. The Mercedes GL was launched in India in 2010 and was primarily made to cater to North American tastes, its large size being a case in point. The seven seater hasn’t been as big a success in India as the Audi Q7 and its steep price and lack of cheaper and smaller engine options is hurting the sales as both theAudi Q7 and the BMW X5 are cheaper than the GL.
