The world's leading car manufacturer, the German company Mercedes Bans, in 1997 introduced a new model of class M SUVs. significant changes. The first thing I want to say when looking at this stylish SUV is that this car is really powerful and not easy. Thoughtful design and technical performance, as always, at the highest possible level.
Today, the aggressive, but at the same time incredibly stylish Mercedes ML 350 is chosen by many.
From the main distinguishing features of its appearance, I would like to highlight the following characteristics. The lower part of the bumper is stylized with a protective steel insert. Drop-shaped headlights meet the classic canons of this brand. A nice addition will be the xenon and fog lights combined with them. The concept of rear-view headlights is similarly built, as well asprotective insert. Air intakes are located at the base of the hood, and direction indicators are indicated on the rear-view mirrors. To further emphasize the quality of a real SUV, the Mercedes Benz ML 350 is equipped with additional underbody and engine protection.
As for the dry statistics, you should pay attention to the dimensions of the car. Its length is about 480 cm, width - about 190 cm, height - 180 cm, weight - more than 2 tons. Significantly increased trunk volume and legroom for passengers. Access to the trunk is provided by the fifth door, made with a slight slope.
Technical characteristics of the Mercedes ML 350 surprise even the most sophisticated off-road enthusiasts.
The 2012 model has a six-cylinder direct injection turbocharged engine. The power of the machine is 240 horsepower with an engine volume of about three liters. An advanced seven-speed automatic transmission works in harmony with the engine. In addition, this car model has become more economical in use: compared to the previous ones, fuel consumption has been reduced both on the city highway and off-road. Mercedes ML 350 has the ability to use six driving modes adapted to different types of terrain. The most commonly used modes are Auto, ideally suited to the requirements of city roads, Winter, recommended for trips in winter, as well as two modes for driving with a trailer - Sport and Trailer.
The machine is supplied as standardwith seventeen-inch wheels and equipped with a set of tires used for driving on hilly terrain and off-road. Professionals, by the way, appreciated their high quality during numerous test drives. The car is well controlled due to the presence of a rear and front stabilizer. She passed the test on the most difficult turns. The only possible negative is how the SUV copes with the voluminous potholes that are so common on Russian roads. Shocks and wiggles are felt throughout the body of the car. Such a nuisance, however, is very classic and occurs in most cars of this type.
Among class M SUVs, the Mercedes ML 350 is beyond competition, the price of which in 2012 in European countries started at $50,000.
The presentation of the updated model took place in Russia in 2013. You can buy such a dream car in branded stores for an amount that will be at least three million rubles, and it will depend on the configuration of the car.
