Mercedes-Benz ML350 – Perfect Car for Asian Drivers In Richmond

If any car was designed for a specific group of people and a specific place, the 2012 Mercedes-Benz ML350 is that car. I can’t help but feel that the engineers at Mercedes-Benz must have visited Richmond when they designed the 2012 ML350. If you’ve ever been to Richmond (a suburb of Vancouver), then you know it’s a city filled with Asians who can’t drive for the life of them. Case in point – Ed Lau lives in Richmond. Driving in Richmond, especially when Ed’s around, is a very dangerous affair.

Now, if every Asian driver in Richmond had a new 2012 ML350, the city would instantly have the safest roads in North America. The list of safety features found in the new ML include technologies to stop the car if the driver is about the rear end the car in front because he’s too busy texting on his phone (something that Ed Lau is famous for). Additionally, the ML350 monitors the car’s blind spot and will actually prevent the driver from changing lanes if there’s another car there. Imagine how many Richmond accidents that would avoid!

Judging by the amount of Mercedes in Richmond already, I expect the 2012 ML350 to be a hot seller. And with a base price starting at $57,900 CAD ($59,160 USD), it’s actually quite reasonable. That is, until you find out the same Mercedes can be had in the United States for $48,990 USD. Mind you, the Canadian ML350 does get that cool AMG body kit as standard equipment.

I want to thank Mercedes-Benz for making the streets of Richmond a lot safer. Now, all Ed Lau has to do is convince his parents to buy him one.

  4. A friend of mine has the S550 and it is awesome. I have driven it several times. It has the push button start, inside TV monitor that shows what is behind you when you back up and apparently it can take a car backing into the backdoor sidepanel without even leaving a mark.

  5. I think I can buy it soon! Thank for review!

    1. PPC Ian says:

      Very nice looking vehicle. Cant go wrong with any Mercedes although I prefer BMW.

  7. Hum! it’s a top class Asian Car.

  8. such so cute its a beautiful car.

  9. Fantastic invention, the traffic would stop here in Spain. Everybody is 10-20 cm apart from each other in 100-120 km / hour. We have the highest death and traffic accidents in Europe.

    Looks good but the Audi Q7 eats it up!

    1. John Chow says:

      The Q7 is a 7n seater and completes against the GL Class, which is also a 7 seater. The ML goes up against the Q5. I would pick the GL and ML over a Q5 or Q7.

      1. Oleg says:

        ML vs Q5 is not actualy right. GLK is the right rival for Q5. I like this new ML. It looks awesome.

  11. John will just have to blog for 30 days to have this 🙂

  12. Yeah really cool car. I wish i could have one of them. I can then drive blindly

  13. Chad B says:

    Mercedes Benz has always been a great car. You can never go rong with any of their models which combine quality and elegance.

  14. Wow! That’s one heck of a car! Though, It will take me a lifetime to buy one like this. I really like the additional light in the car’s front..

  15. Yes it is a great car indeed.

    1. Yes, I simply love Mercedes cars, especially after having been in an accident with one. They are VERY safe!

  16. GamesDunia says:

    I see ad in television about this car and it is luxury.

  17. If I don’t live in Richmond, can I still buy one?

  18. Erwin Miradi says:

    Nice looking car. But I guess it’s too big for a single guy like me.

    1. PPC Ian says:

      Agreed it’s a big car! I prefer sports cars myself.

    2. That is a very nice car ineed. I had a Mercedes myself a couple of years a go. Was very happy with it. And Erwin, with a car like that, you wont stay single for very long 😉

  19. PPC Ian says:
