Despite starting off as hit and miss with reliability pre-2012, the M-Class is now one of the most prestigious and sought after used luxury SUVs around. It’s a great all-round package with a pleasing drive, awesome refinement and oodles of space.
In fact, it’s one of the safest and strongest family vehicle’s available. Just be aware that there is no point working to a tight budget. A used 2012 M-Class will still cost well over £20,000 with 80,000 miles on the clock.
