AMG Line trim models are likewise furnished with a Direct Steer set-up, which enhances responsiveness and criticism. At the same time, at last, its conflicting with the motivation behind the auto. It is a MPV all things considered. Still, there are few protests about the protected and unsurprising taking care of. The electronically helped controlling is a bit light, however its immediate and dynamic, while body development is decently controlled.
