Which Mercedes have 7 seats?
Mercedes offers luxurious 7-seater models in the SUV segment with its GLE and the GLS. If you need a little more space, the V-Class is a premium Family Van of the German Luxury carmaker.
These Mercedes models are available with 7 seats in 2020:
Mercedes positions the GLB as a family off-roader. With its 4.63 meters length, it competes against the BMW X3 and the Audi X5. 3rd row seating is part of the standard equipment for most trims.
The seats in the second row can be easily pushed forward and the backrests of the left and middle seats or those of the right seat can be folded forward. A release handle in the upper area of the backrest is available for this.
You can also see that the GLB is positioned as a family SUV in the interior. Up to four child seats can be attached to the ISOFIX anchorages in the second and third rows.
The 5.20 long GLS is THE luxury SUV from Mercedes. The GLS is equipped with 7 seats as standard. Thanks to two fully-fledged seats in the third row of seats, passengers enjoy a high level of travel comfort. Mercedes promises that passengers up to a height of 6ft 3 enjoy sufficient space for head and knees.
Even in the 7-seater configuration, the GLS offers a trunk volume of 520 liters. The third row can be completely sunk into the loading floor. A maximum of 2040 liters of loading volume are available. The prices for the GLS start at EUR 85,000.
The V class can be equipped with 6, 7 or 8 seats. Even in the short version, two 3-seater bench seats can be installed, which makes the V-Class an 8-seater. If only 7 seats are required, the 2nd row of seats can either be equipped with a 2-seater bench or with 2 single seats.
The 7-seater version is available with a 3-seater bench in the 3rd row and a 2-seater bench or 2 single seats in the second row.
Thanks to the seat rail system, on which the benches and seats can be moved lengthways or rotated, there aren’t any limits to flexibility.
Older Mercedes models with 7 seats
The Mercedes GL is the predecessor of the GLS and was built between 2012 and 2019. On the used car market, however, you have to invest at quite a bit even for models with a mileage of over 100,000 miles..
The R-Class that was built between 2005 and 2017 is a cheaper option. However, the MPV, that was manufactured, in the US is usually only available with high mileage in the 6-digit range.
