2012 Mercedes-Benz ML 250 [HD video]
The entry level ML 250 is powered by a 2.1 liter four-cylinder diesel with 204HP (150 kW) and 500Nm (369 lb-ft). It is mated to a 7G-Tronic automatic gearbox delivering the power to an all-wheel drive system.
The new M-Class has a selective damping suspension, while the Airmatic self-leveling air suspension and an Active Curve System with dynamic roll stabilization is available as an option. The SAV equipped with this is a real pleasure to drive.
The safety is at extemely high level – Night View Assist Plus including pedestrian recognition, Speed Limit Assist, Lane Keeping Assist, Blind Spot Assist, Active Park Assist and Distronic Plus and some other intersting systems.
Although the big SUV weighs 2.2 tons, the performance is at decent level as well as the fuel consumption. Check out the video below to see the test.
