The new Mercedes ML63 AMG
So, in conclusion, this is a remarkably efficient car for its class. Stoppy-starty technology, an optimised transmission, and in ‘regular’ 525bhp mode (you can bolt on an AMG performance pack if you want another 32bhp), the new ML coughs just 276 grammes of CO2 into the atmosphere for every kilometre driven. And claims fuel consumption of 10.2kpl.
Maybe those figures won’t win you a date with any wiry SUV-hating hipster girls, but they do compare favourably with any family saloon of just a few years ago. Try telling her that.
