This is a very tidy example of a NZ New Facelift.
ML 350 CDI is a 3.0-litre turbo-diesel V6 from Mercedes' BlueEFFICIENCY lineup. Maximum power is 165Nm at 3800 rpm and peak torque of 510Nm is delivered between 1600 rpm and 2800 rpm.
Benz says the ML 350 CDI covers zero to 100km/h in 8.6 seconds, returns combined cycle fuel consumption of 9.8l/100kms and the exhaust emissions are 260g/km.
Improved, more supportive front seats were added to the ML range at the most recent facelift. ML 350 comes standard with the Luxury Pack' which adds four-way lumbar support to the front passenger's seat.
The driving position was excellent thanks to the multi-adjustable drivers' seat and the new four-spoke leather steering wheel, which adjusts for rake and reach. Benz uses black Artico leather which was nicely trimmed front and rear.
Clearly the AMG kit does boost the ML 350 significantly. We loved the black radiator grille with chrome highlights (even the standard ML front-end is a styling masterpiece).
Also listed under AMG': 21-inch five spoke alloy wheels, side skirts, front and rear aprons and dark-tinted privacy glass rear of the B-pillar.
The front-end did get a workover as part of the latest upgrades noticeable by the lower radiator grille and headlights with a pronounced lower step'. At the rear, the bumper was restyled.
Overall, the changes gave the ML a more muscular appearance but the familiar, steeply forward-angled C-pillars remain.
