The Mercedes-Benz special edition M-Class

The new Mercedes-Benz M-Class Special Edition has just been released here in the UK. Commanding a staggering price of £43,235 for the entry level version, we take a look at why the car is so special.

This is the company’s latest 4×4 placed on the market. Mercedes-Benz are hoping that the special edition model will attract attention to the new generation of the M-Class.

Two different variants

This particular vehicle will come in two separate variants. One being a four cylinder ML 250 Bluetec and the other being a more powerful ML 350 Bluetec. They produce 204 BHP and 258 BHP respectively.

The diesel engines upon the cars have been released just before new European emission laws come into play in 2014. However they will be sufficient enough to meet such laws, which is a testament to how Mercedes-Benz are always looking forward. The exhaust system now has an ‘AdBlue’ urea injection system fitted within. This helps increase the efficiency upon the car a great deal. The ML 250 produces C02 emissions of just 165g/km and achieves a MPG rating of 44.8. The ML 350 produces emissions of 189g/km and manages to record a MPG statistic of 39.2. The ML 350 will be pricier at a cost £46,335.


What so special about this specific M-Class? There are 19 inch alloy wheels which look absolutely magnificent. The car comes with a choice with four colours too. Diamond White costs an extra £815.

Special mirrors

Mercedes-Benz have gone that extra mile this time round with their exterior mirrors. As expected the mirrors will be electrically operated. Through electric operation the mirrors will be able to be folded and auto dimmed.


The car seats will contain Artico artificial leather. Full leather will be made available as an optional extra. Wood detailed interior will come as an option but brushed aluminium will be a standard fit.

The 5.8 inch colour screen display is one of the highlights of the interior. There is also a Nappa leather trimmed steering wheel which contains all necessary functions.  The seats at the front are electronically adjustable, which usually comes as an optional extra.

Standard features

Other standard features include wipers which detect rain, a downhill speed monitor and electronic parking brake. You can also expect the typical Mercedes-Benz safety driver aids which are typically upon most Mercedes-Benz cars.

If users would like to connect to the internet within the M-Class, they can do so using the COMAND Online internet connectivity system which will cost £750, if ordered before June.
