When you are travelling in the M-Class you experience more than just a trip from A to B: you experience driving pleasure at its best. It’s all thanks to various components that bring dynamism to every road: the V6 diesel engines and the V6 and V8 petrol engines accelerate with muscle, but are still impressively comfortable.
DIRECT SELECT lets you use the lever behind the steering wheel to change the driving mode for the automatic transmission, or you can shift gears manually using the paddles on the steering wheel. And the optional AIRMATIC package (included as standard with the ML 500 4MATIC) delivers perfect road-holding. It includes AIRMATIC air suspension and the ADS Adaptive Damping System to combine sporty handling with a high degree of comfort.
