Now this car is a lot of fun! You don’t see them at all in Germany at the moment so when driving one of these, everyone (and I mean everyone) stares at you! The 3.5 V6 is a powerful motor in this car but it drinks like crazy even if you drive normally. I’d opt for an ML320 CDI, forget the ML500 or the AMG version, not interested in them. In terms of handling, it feels like a sports car!
The steering is responsive and direct, the suspension hard and sporty. Power is transferred via the 7Gtronic to all 4-wheels (permanent 4WD). Using the column shift is a piece of cake. I took a video of me operating it, if anyone can host it for me, tell me please!
