SUVs market share is growing substantially with each passing year. They have been popular for a good while, but now they seem to be the "gotta-have" automobile. To accommodate this huge growth, nearly every manufacturer has some type of sport-ute. Many of these vehicles are simply a sedan placed atop a beefed up suspension and are designed for the sole purpose of competing in this market rather than accomplishing a true goal for an off-road vehicle.
Since Mercedes Benz is synonymously with luxury and quality, they introduce the Mercedes Benz ML430 to show that they have set out with a sport utility vehicle in mind, not merely adjusting a current model to fit a multi-purpose platform. Packed with durable and high quality parts that add to its topmost performance. Mercedes Benz ML430 has enough luxurious features to make it a pleasure to drive. The leather interior features heated front seats that can be adjusted eight ways to ensure that anyone can find a comfortable position. There's plenty of headroom and legroom, and the cabin is roomy without being overwhelming. The dashboard is well-lit and all of the controls are easy to operate. Mercedes Benz ML430 works exactly it is supposed to be. When it comes to safety features, it has front and side airbags, a fully boxed steel frame and reinforced body cage, front and rear crumple zones.
ML430 is also equipped with the combination of great handling and a powerful V8 engine, which enables the ML430 to really move when necessary, especially when merging onto the highway or while getting out of the way of a potentially hazardous situation. The ML430 looks almost like a minivan. It possesses a raked hood as opposed to a long flat one. It growls wit its 268-horsepower 4.3-liter V8 engine that give this car the muscle to tackle of-road chores effectively. It is also equipped with a standard full-time four-wheel drive system that is nice for both on and off-road. Whether its a slick thoroughfare or a muddy trail, a sophisticated traction control system diverts torque to the wheels which have the most traction, resulting in a stable recovery from a skid or the extra dirt-clawing friction needed to pull you out of a rut.
The ML430 would therefore be a great car for anyone with an active lifestyle. From bumpers, to side skirts and molding, all matches the vehicle color. Plus this off-roader is shod with styled 17-inch alloy wheels and 275/55 R 17 tires. Power front seats, automatically-dimming rear-view mirror and a trip computer wit displays for mileage, elapsed time and distance, range, date and stopwatch are all part of the standard equipment package.
