Mercedes-Benz M Class SUV (2008 - 2012) review

Read the Mercedes M-Class 4x4 (2005 - 2012) car review by Auto Trader's motoring experts, covering price, specification, running costs, practicality, safety and how it drives.

Published: 10th October 2009 Updated: 19th November 2014
The Auto Trader expert verdict: 3.8 The M-Class is a road-biased 4x4, making it a refined, comfortable and spacious family car. It comes with big running costs, though, and it’s not as good to drive as the BMW X5.

Pros

  • Very comfortable on most surfaces
  • Quiet, powerful diesel engines
  • Masses of cabin and luggage space

Cons

  • Limited off-road ability
  • There’s no seven-seat option
  • Some cabin trim is below par
