#147; might be tight #151; but not for

Business users and

affluent buyers still want

executive 4x4s, and high on

lists is a Mercedes M-Class,

revamped for the 2009 model #148;

MERCEDES-BENZ HAS JUST the mildly revamped and restyled model year M-Class range to the UK, at prices ranging Ј39,735 to Ј77,455. The main ML 320 CDI Sport model, as tested costs Ј44,285.

Revised, refreshed and refocused specification are the main points of the new M-Class And before anybody thinks big are dead ducks, take that five out of the 4×4 top ten are heavyweights such as the M-Class. Of the top the Land Rover Discovery the way, followed by the Range BMW X5, the Mercedes Benz M-Class and the Q7. People buying these of premium vehicles are less by money worries #151; so anyway.

While the petrol-engined ML 350 has been from the range, the V8-powered ML 500 and ML 63 AMG continue #151; even each accounts for just one per of total M-Class UK sales. The engine line-up is: ML 280 CDI (187bhp V6) will take around 30 per of sales; the 221bhp V6 ML 320 CDi (the popular buy, with 60 per cent of sales); and the 302bhp V8 ML 420 CDI will account for the remaining per cent.

The latest updates a new grille (which differs in between SE and Sport versions), front and rear bumpers, new door mirrors, new projection headlights and dark-tinted tail The increased standard specification Parktronic front and rear Easy-Pack powered tailgate, exterior and rear-view mirrors, wipers, Bluetooth connectivity and front seats.

SE models black roof rails, a grille, twin exhaust multi-function steering wheel, upholstery and the upmarket Audio 20 and Telematics information system. versions, the expected best models, have stainless front and rear underguards, finish roof rails, running boards, privacy 20-inch alloy wheels, seats, rubber-studded stainless pedals and an interior lighting

The new-generation M-Class retains its packaging versatility with for five adults (or four in comfort) and a spacious 500-litre bay that can be extended to a vast litres by folding the one/two split rear seats. A 220 litres can be achieved with cushions #151; this can be as a Ј320 option and includes a Kit and creates a level load extending up to 2,100mm in length.

The benefits from all of Mercedes-Benz the safety and handling characteristics in their luxury saloon, and sports models. Included as is the award-winning PRE-SAFE anticipatory system along with active anti-whiplash front restraints. The comprehensive safety also provides next-generation Braking, Brake Assist, Electronic Traction Control Electronic Stability Programme Trailer Stability Assist and Skid Control #151; in a full five-star Euro impact test rating.

All M-Class versions have all-wheel drive and all make use of a seven-speed automatic transmission now fitted with proper paddles which are much to use than the previous behind-the-wheel

One of the popular extra cost is the Ј1,305 Airmatic that the driver to select from Comfort or Standard modes. this system, even in mode, makes for a ‘detached’ as it floats over the road and induces bodyroll. Nevertheless, a feature of it is the fact that it ‘weights up’ the steering in the setting for more feedback to the as well as sharpening up the throttle and point responses. If your driving, be aware that the non-air suspension provides all round handling but not the sharper for the steering, throttle and the auto A pity that we cannot it all.

The M-Class may be outshone off road by its Rover and Land Rover #151; but less than it was. For brand appeal and however, M-Class is, I think, Yes, it only has five #151; not enough for some in this sector #151; but it is a package with huge of technology built-in.

Only by this vehicle in extremely wet on a circuit and off road can one appreciate how good the slalom handling and braking functions have using electronics. For a big 4×4, the sets new standards. Off road performance on road tyres is for most owners #151; but you get stuck when the going really tough.

Having most versions of the latest both on- and off-road, I believe the ML 320 CDI is, the best engine to choose: to the huge 376lb ft of torque from only 1,600rpm, the V6 direct injection common-rail is strong and very responsive. And more than enough to tow a braked 3,500kg.

Going on Mercedes’ claims, the best-selling model will be the ML 320 CDI #151; a case of ‘What’s an Ј2,500 when you’re Ј41,785?’ I’m not so sure the extra Ј2,500 the Sport over SE specification is worth it. people obviously do like boards and 20-inch wheels, but the SE is value and it has all the brilliant technology makes it easy and safe to Choose the Sport and add in a few more have’ options #151; as satellite navigation, air suspension and directional beam headlamps and the price of a well-specc’d 320 CDI climbs to a under Ј50,000.

All-in-all, the new is undeniably a classy act. For money you get an imposing, high heavyweight 4×4 powered by a and responsive engine, a silky transmission and brilliant, safe-driving While it’s not as sharp to when fitted with the air suspension, and it has limited off-road I warrant that more enough customers will be the trip to their local dealer to order one. no doubt, a well-specc’d Sport at that! #151; David
