For The Mercedes M-Class is available with some smooth and strong diesel engines, plus it comes well equipped and is available with big discounts.

Against It doesn't ride or handle as well as a modern SUV should, and the cabin feels a bit cheap.

The Mercedes M-Class is one of the more affordable luxury SUVs, but it's let down by its disappointing drive and interior.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

The Mercedes M-Class range comprises a 2.1-litre four-cylinder diesel (badged ML250), 3.0-litre six-cylinder diesel (ML350) and the 5.5-litre turbocharged V8 petrol ML63 AMG for those performance junkies with very deep pockets.

All models come with a seven-speed automatic gearbox and a generous specification as standard, but there's no shortage of extras to add to the car. Be warned, though: some of the options are expensive, so it's easy to add significant sums of money to your bill if you get carried away.

Fuel economy and emissions are good for a car as big and heavy as the M-Class, but if you want to spread the cost of servicing, consider taking out a Service Care package. Pay a monthly fee and this covers the cost of regular maintenance in a Mercedes dealership.
