Value

4 out of 5

It's a beauty, but it's not cheap or perfect.

Costs

2 out of 5

Servicing, general wear and tear plus loads of hi-tech gadgets can fail, which proves very costly (especially with M-B labour costs!)

Very impressive, but fuel costs aren't so.

Reliability

2 out of 5

Not as much as one would expect from an £80k car.
