The 2012 Mercedes Benz M Class is expected to be launched tomorrow amid fanfare for the Indian car market. This launch is said to be taking place at the luxuriant Hyatt Regency located in New Delhi. Mercedes Benz India is getting this SUV through the CBU route into the market even after the hike of 2% on the excise duty, which has made all the imported SUV Cars costlier in the country. Similarly, the Mercedes Benz M Class Price is also going to be more and is being estimated to be in the range of Rs. 65 lakh to Rs. 70 lakh. The confirmed final price of this SUV will be announced at the official launch tomorrow. There have been some noteworthy changes to the exteriors of this new 2012 Mercedes Benz M Class when compared to the prevalent version. To begin with, this new version is bigger and more spacious; it has got a wrap around rear wind screen, which is making it look spectacular as is visible in the Mercedes Benz M Class Pictures.
This SUV has also been endowed with a panoramic sun roof and is expected to have some good off-road ability as well with an imitation sump guard and windowsills. This 5-seater formidable SUV is expected to have a tougher chassis with superior quality interiors, a brilliant instrument panel with a lot of wooden feel used on the dash board and other surfaces making this SUV give a royal appeal. Other features also include sophisticated audio as well as communication system, a good amount of boot space as well. With an automatic Start/Stop and a standard 4-wheel drive with brake energy recuperation, it will give an enhanced and pleasurable driving experience to the driver.
According to some Mercedes Benz M Class Reviews, the total weight of this SUV is said to be around 2,175 Kgs and the engine has also been tweaked a little for improved performance. The dominant engine is a V6, 3.0 litre diesel engine capable of producing an awesome power of 230 Bhp along with a thumping torque of 540 Nm. This Mercedes engine can propel the SUV from 0 – 100 Kmph in just 7.4 seconds and can attain a top speed of 224 Kmph.
