1. Mercedes Benz GL450
2. Audi Q7
3. Infiniti QX56
4. Cadillac Esclade
5. Lincoln Navigator


Test drive: S500 & Actros :-

yeah read that article few days back, its a great car, but when the new X5 will come things will change...I still like it, but its not radical looking, i prefer the new X5, thought wouldnt mind owning the GL too, its sort of a home run for the MB, but havent seen too many of those in the land of the SUVs yet, as many as the Q7, which is 1.

Looks pretty much similar to the ML though.

As a full size SUV, the GL has received fantastic reviews. It really cant be compared to the ML since its a segment higher, and has none of the famed M-Class compromise.

GL & X5 are in seperate catagories..In the new X5's brochure they have listed thier competitors, GL is absent in it & ML is present..its shows that both are not in the same wagon....

For me GL is the #1
