Mercedes-Benz R-Class - Web Exclusive

Mar 31, 2010

In ’06, Mercedes-Benz introduced a different type of automobile. Coined their MPV (multi-purpose vehicle), people either hated or loved the R-Class. This week at the New York International Auto Show, they’ve unveiled the next generation of R-Class with a new appearance and more versatility.

The new design borrows several elements from Mercedes’ sedans and SUV models. It utilizes a revised front with horizontal hood, new radiator grille and surround, headlights and chrome-guarded bumpers. Integrated LED daytime driving lights will also be standard. Mercedes made the side to resemble more of a coupe.

Wheel options include five-spoke, five-twin spoke and ten spoke designs ranging from 17” to 21”!

The rear is also updated with a new bumper covering, modified tail lights and integrated exhaust tip trim to give the R-Class a wider look.

The ‘011 R-Class also has new interior features such as more space and luxury such as the heated multi-contour seats and memory functions.

The range of models starts in the UK with the R 300 CDI two-wheel drive and R 350 CDI L 4Matic. The R300 sports impressive fuel efficiently with 37.2mpg while the R350 does 33.2mpg. The diesel engines now have 265hp whereas the previous generation only could do 224hp. But torque is the king where the car has 457 lb-ft.

The US-spec R-Class has yet to be revealed so stay tuned for more information.
