Driven: Mercedes-Benz GLC, GLE and GLS off-road

Mercedes-Benz GLC off-road

Here’s a question. How many owners would like to take their SUVs off-road? Not many? I would say almost none of them. That’s because, they probably aren’t sure how good their SUVs perform off-road.

Are these SUVs capable of handling some harsh terrain with axle twisting manoeuvres, or, are they just good for the school run? In order to clarify these doubts, Mercedes-Benz dealer Sundaram Motors invited us and some of its customers for an off-road adventure event, just outside Bengaluru to showcase and experience their SUV line up’s off-road capabilities.

The SUVs involved were the GLC, GLE and the big daddy, the GLS. The 4Matic SUVs with their several off-roading aids and driving modes like off-road, incline and slippery, which is selected via the ‘Dynamic Select’ rotary switch, took on some serious terrains without breaking a sweat. Downhill Speed Regulation (DSR) feature also came handy. Surprisingly, the GLA too did some impressive off-roading. Don’t believe me? Check out some pictures and a video below.
