    One of the best Mercedes for Indian roads

    Affordable package for a very computable segment. Even the Mercedes GLs is a very capable off-roader as I had took it to mines. It can also be named as Suv s-class as the front as well as the rear seats are very comfortable.

    Ultimate luxury car.

    The road presence and showroom experience was unremarkable. It's an amazing car with immense presence and industry-leading features with a ton of space. It is the most comfortable car in the world no matter which variant you choose to buy. I own the S450 and I'd recommend the Maybach S650 if you really want to experience the best of the best. But maintenance is extremely expensive especially for the petrol variants after 3-5 years as there are a billion things to go wrong. No matter the small grievances, buying an S-Class would definitely be the best decision you would've made in your life!
