From £42,425
Mercedes’ luxurious and well-manned V6 diesel ML has class, quality and comfort to spare

Our Verdict

The Mercedes M-class is luxurious and well-equipped. Shame the chassis lets it down on ordinary B-roads

    First drive review: Mercedes ML63 AMG

    AMG’s daddy ML combines luxury, speed and space very effectively, but fails slightly to win your affection

    Mercedes ML 63 AMG

    Not only one of the most powerful SUV your money can buy, but also very rapid, encouragingly capable, fantastically refined and exceptionally practical.

A lot less distinctive than before, if you looked at the front and imagined it without the badge and with a thinner grill it could be the updated Touareg face. The rear? well this could be from any far east equivalent. I wasnt keen on the mk1 but I liked the current version which is quite good looking, certainly had a distinctive front face and side profile and better looking than the current X5, I'm not so sure about this new shape. Perhaps it'll be better once I see one in the flesh.

The interior seems to be top notch like all new gen Merc but if i was in the market for one of these (which I'm not), would I spend the extra on this or save some money and buy the Touareg, certainly based on these pictures and the reviews for both I would probably choose the VW, why pay more for something which doesn't look any better than a cheaper alternative which also has similar qualities. Once AC have given it's verdict on a full UK test then this may sway my opinion.
