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. A turbodiesel V6, V8, and AMG versions are also available. Handling is responsive but let down by vague steering, and the ML 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 improved to average for the V6, but the diesel is well below average.

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