GL320 BlueTEC shown
- $30,883 - $40,177
- No trim specified for this review
- Good fuel economy, excellent storage space, tight turning radius, responsive engine
- Hard seats, cramped second row, hard ride on uneven roads, fit and finish below Mercedes standard
Purchased As New
We traded our Range Rover for a GL 320 with BlueTec because we wanted additional storage space and better gas mileage. We are getting both of these benefits but there are major negative tradeoffs. The seats are much less comfortable on the GL 320. We take frequent long trips and after 5 hours my back and butt are really sore. This is not something you would discover on a 15-20 minute test drive. The suspension is also very unforegiving and we are feeling highway bumps a lot more than in the Range Rover. If anyone has suggestions regarding tires/wheels I would like to hear them. Third row seating is nice but second row is tight if first row seats are back. Fit and finish is below the level of other MB's we have owned. Overall, we liked the Rover better.
