Mercedes-Benz ML250 Bluetec
SUV under R700k
The Mercedes Benz ML is the quintessential Sandton soccer-mom SUV. The three-pointed star on the bonnet imbues this car with poise and austerity while its size and purposeful design give it increased elbowroom in the basement parking lot.
While the ML 250d Bluetech may be the ‘entry level’ offering, it is a substantial and luxurious vehicle with very good performance. The 2.1-litre, 4-cylinder turbo diesel pushes out a healthy 150kW and a whopping 500Nm of torque. This motor will propel the two-ton ML to 100km/h in nine seconds and on to a top speed of well over 200km/h.
Impressive considering the sheer bulk of this car. Mated to a high-tech, 7-speed automatic, the car’s in-gear acceleration as well as its open road cruising are effortless and enjoyable. If you’re capable of a patient driving style, Mercedes tell us that you’ll use around 7.1-litre/100km.
This ML is in very good shape, has a considerable amount of time left on its maintenance plan and is being sold for a very reasonable price.
