ML350 vs. the Bimmer X5 and Lexus GX470
By John V on


2006 Mercedes-Benz M-Class ML350 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 7A)


MB has hit a home run with the 2006 ML350. We've clocked about 1300 miles on our 2006 ML350 and are very impressed. It surpasses the BMW X5 in every capacity and Lexus in all but one capacity (ease of use of Lexus' navigation is far superior than MB's). Mileage is excellent, the engine is capable and very quiet, comfortable yet sporty ride and much better looking than any other 5 seater luxury SUV in the market. Don't bother with the ML500 ... it's a much thirstier and heavier beast. The ML250 with it's 268 bhp engine is very capable and quick. Very well put together, fit and finish is unparalleled.

Best Features

Quiet ride, air-matic suspension, 7 speed automatic transmission, parktronic, seats, great looks, 19" chrome MB wheels, cruise control, upgraded Harmon-Kardon sterero, head lights that turn with the vehicle

Worst Features

The navigation system is brutally complex to use. MB has got to change this. It's by far the worst i've ever seen and desperately needs touch- screen and voice-activation capabilities. This is the only reason I scored the car with an "8" on interior design. It would get a "10" with better nav.
