What’s it like to drive? 

Reviewer’s opinion

The GLS63 has earned its comparison to the fabled leviathan due to its large mass and menacing presence. It springs to life with the prod of the throttle and roars down the road, turning heads and causing toddlers to clutch onto their mothers in the process. This monster isn’t under your bed….. it’s in your garage!
