Mercedes-Benz M-Class Overview

The M-Class is very refined, with an impressively quiet cabin, meticulous attention to detail, and excellent seats. Its gasoline V6 delivers smooth and powerful acceleration. Other available engines include a turbocharged V6, and the 518-hp V8 AMG. A new 2.1-liter, four-cylinder turbodiesel replaces the V6 turbodiesel for 2015. Handling is responsive, but it is let down by vague steering, and doesn't shine at its cornering limits. There's an underlying firmness to the ride, but it's steady and supple. Some controls have improved, but others remain complicated. Towing capacity is impressive. Reliability has dropped to below average.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
