A smaller version of Mercedes-Benz’s 3.0 litre turbo-diesel is their M-Class ML280 CDI. The ML280 CDI may be a smaller version but that’s where the difference ends. The ML280 CDI has a V-6 24 valve diesel power-plant that delivers an average of under 10 litres/100km. Meshed with Mercedes-Benz’s superb 7-speed automatic transmission, the performance is simply class leading.
If you like to take the long road home, then you will enjoy the exceptional off-road capabilities that the mighty Merc SUV 4×4 has to offer. When traveling off-road, the ML280’s suspension or AIRMATIC suspension automatically adjusts for the road conditions. Speaking of off-road, the ML280 CDI comes in 2 different packages, a 4-wheel drive version designed for most day-to-day off-road necessities, and an off-road package designed and tailored to serious off-road driving.
Safety and security all get high ratings in the Mercedes Benz ML280 CDI. Sporting ABS Anti-Lock Brakes, ESP Electronic Stability Program and rear parking sensors – which let you know that something is behind you (even if you can’t see it) – make the ML280’s safety credentials mighty fine indeed! Other safety features include front driver and passenger airbags, as well as side and curtain airbags. A built in alarm with a remote and an immobilizer keeps the thieves at bay, should anyone try and tamper with the vehicle.
The interior hosts a wide range of comforts. There are hand-crafted leather seats, a manual or electric sunroof, cruise control and many of the other well known power features which are included on the ML280 CDI. There are many different audio options to choose from, with the addition of a satellite navigation system if you so desire.
The Mercedes-Benz ML280 CDI is an economical SUV that is designed with performance and satisfaction in mind. One’s wallet will not be as sorely tested when purchasing this excellent German-engineered masterpiece compared to the bigger engined ML alternatives.
