"Poised delicately between BAWSAQ chic and bone-crunching utility, the Benefactor XLS is every car to everyone. Whether you're attending a board meeting halfway up a rugged cliff face or ferrying humane remains out of your place of work, it's reassuring to know the Germans have got your back. Armored version available, obviously."
Legendary Motorsport description.

The Benefactor XLS (Armored) is a luxury armored SUV featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Further Adventures in Finance and Felony update.


Grand Theft Auto Online

As an armored variant of the XLS, it appears with armored plating and the necessary heavy-duty steel wheels. The SUV appears to take influence from the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class range, particularly the GLS63 AMG and GLC, where it takes the overall shape, beltline, hood styling, and loosely some of the frontal fascia features, such as the grille and headlights. The front fascia takes more influence from the third-generation Hyundai Santa Fe and J200 Toyota Landcruiser, sharing similarly shaped headlights, grille alignment and additional lights. It has a large Benefactor logo on the front grille and ovular rear lights which wrap around the rear quarter panel of the vehicle.

The vehicle has armored plating on the side of the doors, around the front fascia, and window armoring, similar to the Armored Baller LE and LWB. Besides, unlike the standard XLS, the armored variant has the bolt-on fenders and vented skirts. The vehicle also has Limo window tint by default, which cannot be modified.

Being an SUV, the car performs best off-road. Its all-wheel drive layout and traction improves performance on rough terrain and also on-road. The car has reasonable acceleration, but a better top speed than the typical SUV in the game. Overall, it is more comparable to the Gresley. Its height often causes the vehicle to tempt rolling over, but its suspension counteracts this, as seen with the large shockers and springs found off the vehicle's chassis. The engine sound is shared with the Stanier. The engine cover also appears to be a single-cam V8. Overall, it is the best SUV to go for when looking for both armor and performance, behind only the Huntley S.

Despite its armor plating, it has slightly better speed and traction than its normal counterpart and its weight was increased to endure punishment from both gunfire and collisions.

The XLS (Armored) can take the following:

It can be noted that the XLS (Armored) shares its armored capabilities with both armored Cognoscentis, Schafters and Baller LEs.
