Motion sickness is actually triggered by the driver more than the car. Jerky driving motion caused by sharp turns, sudden braking will contribute to motion sickness.

A rocking car (like a rocking boat) will also add to it. So you need a car with stiffer suspension; if anything else.

Between the X5 and GL, I'd say it would be the X5.

Hi,

In terms of motion sickness, both generally will be the same as nearly all other cars - as a previous answer talked about, motion sickness is more about the driving of the car etc. Motion sickness is when your body feels that it isn't moving but your brain thinks that you are, and this discrepancy causes upset.

In terms of comfort and ride, BMWs generally are more about performance, whereas Mercedes-Benzes are more about comfort. Also, the GL is about 20cm bigger than the X5. Whilst this doesn't seem like much, that extra 20cm can help.

Overall, I think that neither of them will make any difference, but the GL has slightly more room and is also taller, so you'll feel less claustrophobic on longer journeys.

I hope I helped
