What are customers saying about the ML Class in the UAE
Kashif - I had to export my used ML350 from the US when I moved to the UAE as it’s such a fantastic car. The handling is like no other SUV, and the interior is easy on the eyes and has everything to keep anyone happy. Pros: Handles nicely and the interior is clean. Cons: High price with options.
Laura - My husband bought me a pre-owned ML500, and it's a brilliant car. As I’m stuck with the school runs in the morning, I know that if anything were to happen my kids and I are safe. Pros: Lavish interior and safety features. Cons: Hasn’t got much unique styling.
Sunil - Second-hand ML63 AMG is just incredible. Loads of horsepower and even though it’s a 2008 model, it’s still quick. Interior options are a bonus and are perfect for the Dubai lifestyle. Pros: Powerful engine and sounds phenomenal! Cons: Fuel economy isn’t great.

About the ML Class
ML Class cars fit in between the GL-Class and GLK-Class suvs. Debuting in 1997, they were originally supposed to know as the M-Class. However, due to rival German manufacturer having their very own M-series, which if you didn’t know is a series of high-performance coupes, convertibles and sedans. To not confuse the two, Mercedes opted for the additional L. Hauling up to five fully grown adults, in 2016, the ML moniker was dropped in favour of the GLE Badge. Did you know that Mercedes-Benz planned to have the ML replace the G! Glad they didn’t. On the road rivals include; Audi Q7, BMW X5 and Volkswagen Touareg.
