    Expert's Take

    Good Things
    • Premium people mover
    • Spacious interiors       
    • Impressive ride quality
    • Niche product from Mercedes with no direct rivals
    • Truly versatile and well thought out MPV
    • Acres of space on the inside for pretty much everything
    Could be Better
    • Cumbersome to drive in city
    • Unimpressive steering feel
    • Brakes could do with more bite 
    • Available with a single powertrain 
    • Humongous dimension causes hassle for city manoeuvres
    • Only few buyers may find it fitting to their need

    Only Features doesn't support the car Safety Shud Be tho most priority!

    If you are spending 30 Lakhs on the car at least u want the safety of level of 30 lakhs, not 3 Lakh! Totally disappointed on safety. Base model shud behave more safety features, for safety concern u have to buy higher variant, Features are not concerned it has all features which anyone wants but it's not right car according to the price.
