What We Like

While on the road, the ML350 BlueTec offers a quiet and comfortable ride. It can maneuver into tight spaces while still having large amounts of cargo capacity. The power lift gate is a nice feature for taking emptying out the cargo area with ease. Handling is solid and the vehicle has no problem taking corners. In addition, the pedal is firm yet still provides good feedback. The blind spot detection and lane departure warning prove useful both in the city and while driving on the highway.

What Concerns Us

There is no third row option, so if you need to fit more passengers in your vehicle, you may need to look at other options. The ML350 BlueTec is a heavier than it has been in the past, now weighing over 5,000 pounds. While the vehicle does have cruise control, it is not adaptive like the previous models, which is kind of a disappointment.
