Two segments that have found a raging fire in their belly in recent months stand at both ends of the SUV spectrum. The sub compact SUV and the super-sized SUV. While the former is getting rather crowded, the latter is made of a good mix of premium options for large families, with the Germans bringing up the frontline. Audi Q7, BMW X7 and Mercedes GLS have all had their fair share of updates – the X7 itself being an update to the segment. Now, the GLS is trying to do what Mercedes does best – impress by an amicable array of technologies and sheer size to begin with!
