If you have decided that you're in the market for a top of the range SUV, then we thoroughly recommend you check out the Mercedes M Class. Even if you think it might be a little bit out of your price range, it's well worth considering thanks to a range of excellent features.

M Class Background

The Mercedes M Class made its first appearance back in 1997, when then German company decided that it was time to replace the ageing G Class, and since then it has become one of the most popular lines of Mercedes vehicles still available.

As an SUV (that's sports utilities vehicle for those of you who are curious), it's obviously a range that's hugely popular in the United States, however those of us across the pond shouldn't necessarily see that as a bad thing.

While the current versions of the Mercedes M Class' engine does start off at a 2.1 litre I4, increasing up as far as a monster 5.5 litre V8 at the very top end of the spectrum (which may have something do do with its popularity in the States), the vehicles does have a high enough level of construction, features and reliability to ensure that it still works out to be value for money in the end - even if that may be a little difficult to believe.

There are hybrid options available for those of you concerned with the environment, while the M Class comes with a range of luxurious interior features, from walnut finished panels to elegant dash displays.

Is it really worth it?

So, power and interior aside, what else does the Mercedes M Class have that less expensive alternatives do not? Plenty, if we're being honest. The vehicle offers its drivers almost unparalleled safety in its class, top class performance in a range of different driving conditions and the build quality that you can only get with a name like Mercedes. It may fall down in fuel consumption, but if you're willing to overlook that, then it's head and shoulders above everything else in its class.
