Vehicles with Consumer Reviews
The new R320 BlueTEC diesel replaces last year's CDI model and will be available for purchase in all 50 states. Additional changes for 2009 include making the PRE-SAFE preventative occupant safety system and a power sunroof standard on all models. New options include a class II trailer hitch and upgraded audio with available SIRIUS Real-Time Traffic and Voice Control.
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.
