Most bang for your buck for a Mercedes by far. Had ours for a month and quite pleased other than the lumbar adjustment is a little lacking with it's the manual lever (akin to something on a 80's Honda). The bluetooth module is also $500 bucks from the dealer and really should be included as well as the available seat adjustments on other models. Another gripe is the navigation; really not as intuitive compared to other less prestigious manufacturers. The diesel has good acceleration and is unbelievably quiet but you'll pay a little extra for it up front and at the pump but hey its four wheel drive. I'm one of those that love the looks and interior styling and hope they don't change it.
Four wheel drive, quality finishes, seats for seven, panaromic roof, wide entry for passengers
Full seat adjustment as in other models, wish the amg version would return, second row seats should be able to return to selected recline positions after third row entry/exit.
