Star cricketer Virat Kohli is really fond of expensive cars. His garage is mostly made up of luxury SUVs and saloons like Bentley Continental GT. Recently, Kohli was spotted in the airport on his latest ride – a luxurious Mercedes-Benz GLS SUV.
The former Indian captain prefers to drive his car and we have spotted him driving around multiple times. In the GLS SUV though, he sat in the rear seat and was chauffeured. It seems like the new ride of Kohli will be mostly used for chauffeuring duties. And there could not have been a better choice than the GLS. Virat Kohli was spotted by Cars For You.
The Mercedes-Benz GLS is the SUV equivalent of the luxurious S-Class sedan. It is made for rear-seat comfort and offers a slew of luxury features including rear-seat massagers
