    Expert's Take

    Good Things
    • Iconic Off-Roader with world-renowned capabilities
    • Comes with modern hardware, features and customisation
    • Not as expensive as we expected it to be
    • 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
    • Not the easiest car to manoeuvre in city
    • Even though it’s not utilitarian, the cabin is noisy
    • Ergonomics could have been better
    • Available with a single powertrain 
    • Humongous dimension causes hassle for city manoeuvres
    • Only few buyers may find it fitting to their need
