The Mercedes GL550 is a large, luxury SUV that can comfortably seat seven occupants. It’s an ideal vehicle for getting you around LA in style, comfort and without any restrictions on space.

This full-size SUV is absolutely ideal if you’re planning a beach break with family or friends, or perhaps heading up to the mountains for a little R&R. Whatever terrain you’re travelling on, the Mercedes GL550 luxury hire car delivers a cloud-like ride at all times, thanks to the fantastically effective air suspension.

Under the bonnet of this super-sized prestige vehicle is a 429-horsepower twin-turbocharged V8 engine that delivers plenty of power to ensure it’s an effortless drive. The impressive Mercedes all-wheel drive system makes for excellent handling, even on winding roads like Mulholland Drive or the Pacific Coast Highway, so you’ll always feel in complete control whenever you get behind the wheel.

The seven seats in all three rows are supportive and comfortable. Leather upholstery and a high quality finish add the luxury feel that you would expect from this high-end German manufacturer. The front seats have controls for heating, ventilation and even massage functions – perfect for relaxing on a long Interstate drive. The cabin is elegant and luxurious throughout, with all surfaces covered in premium materials, plus upscale amenities like a Harman Kardon stereo to keep you and your passengers entertained on every journey. There’s also a rearview camera and automatic parking assist to make parking the Mercedes GL550 hire car a breeze. Plus, it’s packed with plenty of high-end safety features and driver aids such as forward collision warning and driver drowsiness monitoring to make you feel safe and at ease.

The Mercedes’ infotainment controls are exceptionally user-friendly. The display on the central screen can be controlled by the command mouse or by voice activation. There’s an excellent satellite navigation system that will guide you with ease around the streets of Los Angeles, as well as smartphone integration, dual-zone automatic climate control, a sunroof, Bluetooth, HD Radio, and a USB port. The steering wheel can control many of the car’s features too including the cruise control,

audio and phone controls – allowing you to make calls and change the music without taking your hands off the wheel.

Your passengers will be very comfortable in the Mercedes GL550 luxury hire car too. This spacious SUV has plenty of head and leg room in the rear, running boards to help everyone climb in, and rear passengers have their own climate controls too so everyone can keep cool in the Californian heat. If all five rear seats aren’t needed, they can easily be stowed away to create extra trunk space. The seats fold down electronically via buttons in the trunk, making it super easy to load up any cargo or luggage you may have. The Mercedes GL550 offers 16 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third row, 49.4 cubic feet with the third row folded, and a maximum of 93.8 cubic feet with both the second and third rows folded.

The Aston Martin is my favourite car and we hired a fleet of luxury cars for a product launch. The cars arrived in pristine condition and was well worth the investment. Thank Starr Luxury Cars for all your assistance.

We recently used Starr Luxury Cars for a corporate track day and hired several Aston Martins for our team. Starr Luxury Cars organised delivery of all the vehicles and collected them afterwards and the customer service was fantastic. Thanks Ike and the team.
