Excellent SUV
I ever drove this car to California, 4200 round trip I would say it just excellent, the fuel is very economic on HWY, got 11.5 L/100KM. safety, driving with leisure, the Mercedes GPS is so accurate, almost accurate to 1 meter! The 12 speaker surrounding sound is like you are in 3D MAX. Kids watch DVD movies in the rear, load 3 bicycles and 5 cases into the cargo.
