Mercedes-Benz M-Class has a lot going for it, including outstanding safety scores and decent fuel economy from most models. It gained a hybrid trim, giving buyers an option for even better fuel economy. Reviewers said the V6 model offered enough power for most drivers, although shoppers who want more power or towing capacity should opt for the V8 trim. The M-Class isn't an off-road beast like a Land Rover, but it's better than many competing crossovers, and it offers good on-road performance as well. Standard features include Mercedes' COMAND infotainment system, eight-way power-adjustable front seats and burl walnut trim, while leather upholstery, a heated steering wheel and a rear-seat entertainment system are all available. Test drivers said the M-Class is fairly engaging to drive, and in general, felt it was a solid entry in its class.
