This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest Mercedes-Benz M-Class AMG (12-15) review.

Parkers overall rating: 3 out of 5 3.0

A standard ML was crash tested in 2008 and received a top five-star rating; the same applies to the ML63. As well as dual front, side and window airbags, ABS with brake assist, electronic stability programme, anti-skid control and seatbelt pre-tensioners, it also comes with 'Pre-Safe'. This system senses that the car may be about to be involved in a accident and prepares the key safety systems for a possible collision - the seatbelts are tightened, it moves the seats into a better position and closes the sunroof if the car is about to roll.

Security features include an alarm, immobiliser and remote central locking.

The ML63 lacks none of the standard model's practicality and is well suited to family life. The rear seats split and fold 60/40 and the boot is an excellent size with up to 2,012 litres of storage space and enough room for anything up 2.10 metres in length, making it ideal for carrying larger items. Although the glovebox contains the CD autochanger, it doesn't mean less storage space.

The changer is hidden in the roof of the glovebox and drops down at the press of a button.
