Mercedes ML , which fell into the hands of the autopolek editorial team is 3 . 0 L diesel V6 , 258 HP . I admit that such cars cause me a great thrill . Styling , size ,equipment , timelessness – it’s all associated with American looseness and a love of what is great and powerful . Of The ” upgraded ” the ML has Been Produced since 1997 , the more solid version No . 2 came in 2005 , while today’s Mercedes ML is the third edition of this model , produced since 2011 . It should be added that compared to previous versions , the tested ML is definitely a higher standard , better use of space and limited combustion .
Mercedes ML looks majestic . It is wide ( 1 . 93m ) and tall ( 1 . 8m ), but all in perfect proportions . The car just looks phenomenal . ML is consistent with the new Mercedes lines . The rear window line seamlessly connects to the trunk window . The front lights refer to models of previous generations . It may seem that due to its size it is not manoeuvrable , but nothing more wrong .
It is difficult to write about all Mercedes ML equipment . Of course , a lot depends on the option you configure . However , despite the rich assortment of functions , the car does not overwhelm with thousands of controls , like some French cars , it only subtly encourages you to test further equipment options .
A pleasant surprise was the comprehensively adjustable seats , perfectly adapting to even the most demanding spine and , as befits a car of this class , offering a blissful massage that I did not fail to use .
Inside there is a classic elegance , and the quality of finish is sensational . The interior design has been prepared with brand – specific care .
There is no driving without a star
You sit high behind the wheel . For me a bomb ! The steering wheel and seats can be easily adapted to the individual figure , requirements and preferences . No matter how fast we go , it is calm and quiet inside . The air suspension catches any unevenness . We can also enjoy such flavors as the Adaptive Damping system , which analyzes the surface condition and driving style , adapting to them the characteristics of the work of suspension elements . In addition , we can opt for the optional Active Curve Active Stabilizer Package , which minimizes body roll during dynamic cornering .
Of the more mundane features , it’s worth mentioning very good acceleration , because accelerating a 2 – ton car in 7 . 4 to a hundred is a really impressive result and a 7 – speed automatic transmission , which also perfectly guides this beast with a diesel engine
At first glance , Mercedes ML is a giant car created for wide American highways and huge parking lots . But these are just appearances . In fact , I could sum it up as ” small ,family , it will fit anywhere . ” With the fact that it’s small , it’s a ” minor ” distortion . However , driving this car , also in the urban cycle , is pure pleasure . Parking is also easy . In turn , the main advantages of the car are a great sense of comfort and safety . Mother of two ( or more ) kids , will find a place for their treasures here , and in silence , peace and enjoying incredible fun from driving , will comfortably reach their destination .
Although ML is assumed to be an auto – tuned car , it seems to me that it feels better on the highway . Practically flows on the road . We will enjoy a longer journey with a back massage . Inside there is peace and harmony , which can only be disturbed by a good sound system – but at our own request .
There is no shortage of space and space on any seat , and the huge trunk will probably fit all pairs of shoes that we want to take with us on vacation ;). ML is a typical sofa – bed ,which at the back offers as much comfort as on the front seats . The only thing missing is massage , but it is compensated by a separate air conditioning zone and monitors in the headrests .
Merc is Eco
The ecological character of a ML – care system called Blu – tec , reigning over the composition of the exhaust gases and reducing harmful nitrogen oxides . But what can I say , it is not proper for Mercedes to poison the air these days .
price does not matter
The price of the basic version of the ML The ML with a 3 liter A diesel is 286 , 000 . zł . Our tested copy costs a mere 523 thousand zł . However , I can say with all responsibility that I wouldn’t hesitate to use my credit card if only I had such a generous card :). However ,if you can afford such madness and if you are looking for an extremely comfortable SUV with a racial appearance , arousing widespread admiration , ML will spoil you to the limit .
