We saw the more striking third generation M-Class  return to the high end SUV spectrum earlier this year, and the three-pointed star's efforts at making the new ML-Class bolder, roomier and more efficient than ever before have not gone unnoticed.


With its top end ML350 CDI (Read : ML350 CDI Road Test) model having already caught the fancy of SUV enthusiasts with deep pockets, the Germans have now plonked a more frugal 2.2-litre twin turbo four-cylinder diesel mill into their new high tensile M-Class model, which now develops 206PS of power and 500Nm of torque.


The new M-Class 250 CDI like all models of its current generation has Bi Xenon Head lamps with LED daytime running lamps, an Intelligent Light System (ILS), an Electric Sunroof, 18” ten spoke light alloy wheels and a 7G- TRONIC PLUS transmission with 4WD among other salient features.

 

Safety technology features include anti-lock braking system (ABS), Electronic Stability Program (ESP) Acceleration Skid Control, Brake Assist and seven strategically located air–bags that ensure the safety of its passengers upon collision/accident. An ECO start-stop function helps reduce fuel consumption and overall emissions, while driver assist features such as Attention Assist, an Electric Parking Brake and Active Parking Assist make for hassle free driveability.

 

Speaking at the launch of the new ML 250 CDI, Peter Honegg, Managing Director & CEO, Mercedes-Benz India said, “The M-Class 250 CDI priced at Rs. 45.64 lakhs (ex-showroom Pune) is the first M-Class ever to be offered from a local production outside Mercedes-Benz’s SUV plant in Tuscaloosa, USA. India becomes the ‘first’ market in the world to enjoy this elite status and further highlights Daimler AG’s focus and commitment on the Indian market.”
