The luxurious interior of the 2008 Mercedes-Benz M-Class is what you'd expect from a vehicle in this segment. Burl walnut wood trim and a multifunction steering wheel and dash display are included, as are an 80-watt audio system with AM/FM/CD stereo, two deep cup holders, dual rear cup holders, and too many other features to list in a short review.

Automobile.com is impressed by some of the car's more unique features, "such as a heated steering wheel and a power tilt and sliding glass sunroof," and is satisfied that Mercedes-Benz’s 2008 M-Class comes with "all the trimmings you'd expect."

Many luxury cars today include navigation systems as part of their list of either standard or available features, but they have become stigmatized as being difficult to use. Mercedes has done an excellent job of making its optional navigation system easy to handle, and Automobile.com appreciates the "cellular telephone preparation with Bluetooth hands-free."

Keeping the kids entertained on long drives are seven-inch monitors built into the back of the front-seat headrests, bundled with the optional DVD entertainment system. Sirius Satellite Radio is also available.

Forbes Auto, meanwhile, notes the AMG edition gets a special add-on: “The special AMG instrument cluster has a lap timer so you can keep track of precisely how long it takes to run errands around town.” In the top-end ML63 AMG, Forbes Auto also loved that the "tremendous AMG sport seats are wrapped in Nappa leather with suede-like Alcantara inserts." The AMG edition also adds a DVD navigation system, a wonderful Harmon/Kardon sound system, and three-zone climate control system as standard gear.

Conclusion

The 2008 Mercedes-Benz M-Class pours on standard equipment—and gets truly lavish with its options.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
