Do you get these in the States? It's vast and has a diesel engine.
Expecting the car to be ponderous, slow and dreary, I switch the driving mode dial to Sport and moved through the dual carriageway surrounding the Mercedes Benz headquarters onto a test route I had previously used to sample two high-performance AMG models. Whilst not in the same league, the seamless power delivered by the 258BHP diesel engine is a surprise, as this is transmitted to the four driven wheels without much lag. There's a short delay whilst the engine gives off a pleasant growl but the claimed 0-62mph time of 7.9 seconds is easily achieved. This is not a slow car and once bowling along, surfs a 620Nm wave of torque.
