          Mercedes-Benz R class has adequate power from its standard V6 engine but they much preferred the diesel-powered for its brisk acceleration. A seven-speed automatic transmission is standard, smoothly and quickly. All-wheel drive is standard. The gas-powered R350 gets an EPA-estimated 16/21 mpg city/highway, which is a bit low compared to similar rivals’ estimates. The turbodiesel V6-powered R350 BlueTec gets 18/23 mpg, which is good for the class. R-Class features premium interior materials and excellent build quality.


The three-row Mercedes Benz R-Class has room for six or seven in its flexible interior. Access is very easy, but the long rear doors can strike adjacent cars when swung open. The second-row seats are very roomy and comfortable, but the third-row seats are tight. When they are folded, early R-Class models could only carry four passengers, a second-row bench seat was offered, increasing seating capacity. Fit and finish are excellent, but some controls are awkward.


   The ride is comfortable and quiet. Handling is responsive and secure, but the steering is too light. The 5.0-liter V8 returned 15 mpg overall in our tests. Mercedes R-Class gets a more powerful 3.5-liter, direct-injected, V-6 that is rated at 302 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque, mated to a more fuel efficient seven-speed automatic transmission. Standard features including a refreshed COMAND unit with hard-drive navigation, enhanced voice control, Sirius real-time traffic service, and HD Radio.
