As a way to transport loads of baggage, in all other than off-road, a 4WD car makes several galaxies sense than any of the current of steroidal-pumped SUVs. But AMG asks you to your disbelief for a while because its new ML63 AMG is here to try to you otherwise.

The problem is, none of it feels Yes, it goes fast. yes, it can corner quicker and than you’d have possible. But you’re never than totally aware the science beating the physics, not Fine, if you don’t mind sort of thing, but have a go in a estate before you buy one of these. If doesn’t change your here are two more words to with: ‘think’ and ‘again’.

The numbers

The verdict
