At no time did our driver have to really bury the gas pedal to stay ahead of the traffic flow, even with four passengers on board. As you might expect from a Mercedes, there is no shortage of available options, from an impressive extended infotainment system with its twin 10. The main cargo area remains the same size, and the height of the cargo load floor stays the same with or without the third row. For starters, there appears to be sufficient motivation available from the 2. The rear gets modern-looking taillights and sleek bumper while the contours of the rear glass give it strange silhouette when seen front the rear. If you opt for third-row seating, the sliding feature is included to aid access in and out of the rear seat. The cabin is well-insulated against outside noise, and the design is just as attractive as other modern Mercedes models, but with more of a utility feel.

. When the third row is out, the cargo room expands to 62 cubic feet. The armrests are also more narrow than we're used to, especially the shared space in the center, but that's likely to help maximize the more critical seat-width space. Don't forget about the three-row Tesla Model Y, by the way. You sit upright in the cabin with deep footwells, and at least from the front seat, there's more legroom to enjoy than what your eyes tell you. Mercedes generally does automatic transmissions well, and the new eight-speed doesn't feel like an exception so far.

The model will also use modern safety systems for the safety of passengers. The newest safety equipment is also available. Switching between drive modes also varies the amount of torque sent rearward, from 20% to as much as 50%. But the Tiguan can be optioned up to a luxury spec, and the Disco Sport doesn't have any mechanical off-road advantages such as a low-range gearbox or locking differentials. The model will come with the 8-speed automatic transmission and standard all-wheel drive system. It may be a relatively unconventional rival, but we wouldn't be surprised to see some cross-shopping against this group.

The 2020 Mercedes

All three vehicles' off-road capabilities are entirely based on software wizardry. When the second row is also removed there will be an additional 26 cubic feet of space. Though 18-inch wheels with run-flat tires are standard, the example we rode in was fitted with optional 19-inch wheel and tires and the standard, non-adaptive suspension. The price will be known closer to the on-sale date. The 4Matic all-wheel drive will be able to handle some mild off-road terrain without issue, but don't expect to join your Jeep-riding buddies on their next Rubicon adventure. With seats for seven employed, the model will have 26 cubic feet of the cargo space. We found the ride to be a little choppy on the highway, though we have no baseline reference to compare since the road was new for us as well.

We won't have our turn at the wheel for a couple months, but we did sit shotgun for a decent stint, which gave us an idea of what to expect. Our tester was configured as a five-seater with the optional sliding second row, which affords you more legroom when pushed all the way back. Both house a turbocharged 2. With the five-seater, you do gain extra underfloor storage where the folded seats would've been. We suspect, however, that the larger 20-inch wheel option would be even less comfortable, at least if it's paired with the standard suspension. Part of that comes from the materials, which feel less expensive but are also possibly more resistant to wear.

It might seem like a mismatch here. The width is 72 inches. The twin-display setup comes with either 7. However, it offers an optional third row, expanding passenger capacity to seven. Electric power steering combined with all independent suspension will be standard and buyers can opt for the adaptive dampers to calm the ride further. The all-wheel-drive 4Matic trim comes standard with an off-road package that includes additional drive settings designed to deliver better traction when the pavement runs out.

The design of the interior is similar to that of the A-Class sedan which is also based on the same platform. There will be diesel units available. The model should go on sale by the end of the year. The engine will make 221 horsepower and torque of 258 pound-feet. The profile of the model is defined with the flat roofline, small overhangs and protected fender flares like on the off-road oriented models.

The model will include adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, automatic emergency braking, etc. Bear in mind that's how most of your rear passengers will feel if you plan to use the third row regularly — pinched. The system can be controlled in multiple ways by taping on the screen, hand gestures, touch-pad control on the center console or Siri-like command. The power for the model will provide a 2. The third row also doesn't add seriously to the cost of the vehicle.

The second row is moveable forward and rearward while the third row consists of two seats divided by the cupholders. . . . . . .
