LEAKED: Brochure pics of the new Mercedes-Benz M-Class spill out on the internet
While we were writing the previous article, a few images taken from an internal brochure for the new Mercedes-Benz M-Class were already becoming famous on various automotive websites and forums over the internet. As expected, the new medium-sized SUV from Stuttgart applies the same principles as the outgoing model - a dynamic profile, a clean, progressive and powerful front end and an elegant tail section inspired by the new E-Class. The distinctive aura of the W 166 is further asserted by the outstanding cabin, featuring a cohesive design approach: premium quality materials such as leather upholstery, wood and aluminium harmoniously blended with attractive, striking, youthful aesthetics to create an attractive, fresh and youthful dashboard. The technical package of the new M-Class comprises the latest in active and passive safety and also premieres an enhanced 4MATIC chassis and a new offroad management system. To put the car into motion, a new lineup with various, efficient BlueEFFICIENCY diesel and gasoline powerplants will be available at the start of sales: we shall mention the ML 250 CDI with 204 hp, the ML 350 CDI with 265 hp, the ML 350 BE with 306 hp (and later with 354 hp) and the top-of-the-range ML 500 BE version boasting no less than 435 ponnies. Note that the third generation of the Mercedes-Benz M-Class will surely retain the worldwide-known, easy-recognizable "ML" title for emphasizing the engine version. Further hi-res photos and detailed information on the new ML will certainly be released tomorrow.
