Long known in the U.S. for a luxury car lineup topped by the iconic S-Class sedan, Mercedes-Benz has pivoted to bulk up its premium SUV line to meet the shifting tastes of upscale buyers, 69% of whom through March drove home one of its premium utility vehicles. Mercedes now has one of the freshest SUV lineups because most models got major updates for 2020 (the oldest, the G, was redesigned for 2019).

The brand’s array of SUV models and variants is dizzying. They range from bite-sized to super-sized and offer a wide range of personalization, luxury options and powertrains. All Mercedes SUVs offer sportier (and more expensive) AMG performance versions. The GLC and GLE also offer alternative fastback “four-door coupe” body styles alongside their more traditional SUV versions. And the cherry on top for exclusivity (with a price to match) is a separate uber-luxury Maybach version of the GLS.
