Mercedes-Benz M-Class

4 out of 5

How green is it? For 2013, the Mercedes-Benz BlueTEC gets better and we think 28 mpg is pretty darn for a midsize SUV.

Pros We love the build quality of the M-Class and are particularly fond of the even without the optional massagers. We also appreciate the all-wheel drive for Chicago

However, unlike its competitors, the BlueTEC has no third-row option. So we think it still has family it’s not for large families or

What’s new: Since the M-Class was completely redesigned for there aren’t any huge for 2013. There is a new rear-wheel ML350 added to the gasoline and new standard equipment includes the telematics system and Collision Assist. A new option of note: seat massagers. Yes, Being stuck on the Kennedy felt so good.

Ride performance: The Mercedes-Benz BlueTEC comes equipped the same V-6 turbodiesel engine in the GL350 BlueTEC, and it delivers 240 and 455 pounds-feet of torque. Because of smaller size, this makes more sense in the than the G-Class, and it has nice from a stop light as as in passing maneuvers on the highway.

Family value: This is a great family vehicle for 4, and a one for 5. The best part about it: actually road trip You can fit people and their luggage for the haul with a cargo of 36.2 cubic feet the rear seats. Plus, an extra $2,000 spent on entertainment, you can keep kids for the entire trip to wherever.

Fun factor: While we like the and maneuverability of the ML350 BlueTEC, we to admit it isn’t quite as fun as the BMW X5 or the Cayenne. But it is pretty comfortable for commutes, and we love the standard audio streaming and hands-free

Safety: The Mercedes-Benz ML350 has 9 standard airbags including curtain airbags and rear airbags, stability control and pressure monitoring. Our two favorite safety features: Attention which monitors driving and can detect driver drowsiness, and Prevention Assist, which and acts on potential collisions. We wish that rear-view wasn’t optional.
