The Mercedes-Benz R-Class


The Mercedes-Benz R-Class

Mercedes-Benz R-Class is a large crossover vehicle, offering three rows of seating capable of accommodating up to seven - rivals include the Audi Q7 and Mercedes-Benzs own GL-Class.Described as part station wagon, part crossover, and part MPV, the R-Classs main appeal is to large families.The R-Classs main strengths is its passenger and cargo capacity, along with its excellent long-distance highway capability.The standard seating configuration, with seating for three in the second row and two in the third row, allows enough reasonable space for six adults (seven-passenger seating, with a bench at the far back for three, is optional)The R-Class is luxurious, very silent, and exceptionally comfortable. The R-Class was launched in 2006, with 2 models, the R350 and R500 models powered by V-6 and V-8 gasoline engines, respectively, being provided.

A high-performance R63 AMG model, with 370 Kw power, and a 6.2-litre V-8 was introduced for 2007. This provided the R-Class with quicker acceleration and better handling. Mercedes-Benz brought out an R320 Bluetec diesel for 2009, providing a V-6 that offered better fuel-efficiency which was faster than the R350.A negative of the R-Class is that its a large vehicle difficult to park in the city on a regular basis. Rear-ward visibility without a parking camera system is difficult, and the rear doors, which are very useful in gaining access to the third row, are a liability in tight parking situations.
