Great SUV/Van Alternative

by Soccer Dad from Chicago, IL | April 8, 2013

Pluses - Great head room/leg room front, middle AND third row for 6 foot adults. Long wheelbase, low profile and outstanding suspension give the the R-Class a true car-like ride compared to ANY crossover on the market. Handles more like a large car with no truck-like feel at all. Super quiet ride. Great for hauling 6-7 kids to soccer games, or 4-6 business clients to dinner. Mine has second row captains chairs and I love them. Pleanty of storage with third seat lowered. Many Mercedes bells and whistles that give the car a true luxury feel. A bit light on power, but will satisfy 95% of driving situations. Blind spots are relatively non-existent. Fit and finish and quality of interior materials are excellent. Minuses - Expensive repairs, even if minor (if buying "used", strongly suggest going the Certified Pre Owned route and popping for an extended warranty from Mercedes. It will pay for itself). Gas milage is mediocre at best. The last R-Class year was 2012 and the Nav and bluetooth technology is cumbersome and already out of date. Used R-Class prices are high realtive to competition. Summary - If you're not mini van material, and don't care for the truck-like SUV or Crossover ride, this is the car for you. It's more like a big, fancy, station wagon on the outside with a luxury car interior that can seat 6-7. Side note: I've never kept a car for more than three years. I've had this for six, and If MB was still making them, I would buy another.

Great Car, seat ergonomics could have been better.

by Vinod from Exton, PA | February 1, 2012

Obviously the car name suggests that it is a great Car, and a great car it is indeed. The driver seat ergonomics could have been better, especially while driving for long durations, one tends to get a back ache. The responsiveness is good on highways, but there is a sluggishness while starting from zero. This does improve a little bit in the S mode, but not really enough. Ride and handling is very good.
