About Mercedes-Benz R-Class
Is it an SUV? Is it a really large station wagon? Is it, well, a minivan? Though the exterior styling of the 2009 Mercedes-Benz R-Class remains as hard to define today as when it first appeared, this is a vehicle better judged from the inside out. If you find what you desire on the inside, the exterior can be easily justified. Dubbed a "sports tourer," Mercedes believes the R-Class has what upscale families need: Luxury, space, utility and performance. The R-Class includes a seven-speed automatic transmission, an all-wheel-drive option and a choice of gasoline or diesel engines. Other stand-out attributes include its remarkably spacious and feature-rich seating for six people and so much cargo space it bests the huge Cadillac Escalade.
