Mercedes-Benz M-Class details:

The low fuel consumption and exemplary emissions figures make cool reading - on average, the entire model range burns 25 percent less fuel than the predecessor. Never before has Mercedes-Benz succeeded in cutting fuel consumption by such a tremendous margin with an SUV model change. An ultramodern motor line-up, a class-beating Cd value of 0. 32, extensive Blueefficiency measures, as well as new development tools such as the energy-transparent car all play their part in delivering the good energy efficiency figures. The ML 250 Bluetec 4MATIC is particularly impressive in this respect: it is 28 percent more economical than its predecessor, consumes just 6. 0l per 100 km on the NEDC driving cycle (158 g Co2/km) and can cover as much as 1500 kilometres on a single tank of fuel.

In line with the Mercedes-Benz make philosophy, the new Mercedes-Benz M-class introduces the embodiment of the Mercedes-Benz holistic security concept of Real Life Security, which is derived from what happens in a real accident situation. In mix with the front and back deformation zones, the high-strength passenger cell of the Mercedes-Benz M-class offers a highly effective foundation for the occupant protection systems. Both active security and driver-fitness security in the new Mercedes-Benz M-class are further enhanced by assistance systems that will already be familiar, primarily from the S-class and E-class.

All models in the new Mercedes-Benz M-class range provide impressive convenience and dynamic handling as traditional - both on the road and away from the tarmac. Besides the metal suspension with selective damping, there are also some new chassis developments and high-tech dynamic handling control systems available, which are developed to make driving the new luxury SUV an even more effortlessly superior experience. These include the AIRMATIC air suspension with Adaptive Damping System (ADS), the ACTIVE CURVE SYSTEM for active roll stabilisation and the On&offroad suite with six driving modes. A powerful suite of measures has also been included to ensure that the Mercedes-Benz M-class is at the forefront of its segment for acoustic and vibration convenience too.
