Five reasons to buy used Mercedes GL-Class for sale in Dubai, UAE
They appear as big vehicles with massive engines which would result in a lot of noise being generated. However, this is not the case as the acoustics used inside the cabin minimise engine notes and road noise.
Power selection of motors, sure there’s only a V6 or a V8 engine to choose from, but they get the job done.
Something so large needs excellent stopping power and the GL-Class is equipped with massive brakes and have optional perforated brake discs.

The list of options, especially in the second generation goes on forever there is just so much to choose from.
