Handling

If you want a vehicle with plenty of space to transport passengers in style, few choices are better than a large luxury SUV. Two giants in this category are the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLS 450 and the Cadillac Escalade. Before making your decision, here's what you need to know about these posh seven-passenger vehicles.

Interior Space

While both these large SUVs seat up to seven, the GLS 450 is a bit roomier than the Escalade, especially when it comes to the space available for passengers in the third row. Rear-seat denizens who are tall may find themselves a bit cramped in the Cadillac. In addition, the Mercedes-Benz has four full sets of LATCH connectors for child safety seats, while the Cadillac has two sets of LATCH connectors and one tether anchor.

Safety Features

Standard active safety features in the Escalade include front and rear parking sensors with active parking assistance along with a rear seat reminder. The base model of the GLS 450 ups the ante with driver drowsiness monitoring, active braking assistance, crosswind assistance, and a system that tightens seatbelts and rolls up windows in the case of an inevitable impending crash. The latter system is rare among SUVs, even in the well-equipped large luxury class.
