2011 Mercedes-Benz R350 an AW Flash Drive

The Mercedes-Benz is restyled from the A-pillar

What is it?

Mercedes-Benz debuts an R-class for the 2011 model with a new front-end design, altered rear and lightly interior. From the A-pillar the ’11 R-class is new, a more upright grille, hood and headlights to better to the rest of Mercedes-Benz’s SUV lineup. Out a bumper with rear and integrated exhaust outlets and LED taillamps highlight the changes. The 4Matic and the R350 Bluetec also ride on fresh designs and sport sleeker side mirrors.

Inside, the mild changes new two-tone interior color wood trim, silver air rearview mirror with compass and 3-D gauges. Other portions of the interior, such as the and consoles, continue unchanged the 2010 model. A blind-spot system joins the options for 2011.

Also being over are both powertrain a 3.5-liter 268-hp V6 and a 50-state turbocharged diesel V6 with 400 of torque. Both engines bolted to a seven-speed automatic and both are only available Benz’s 4Matic all-wheel-drive in the United States. Suspension is also unchanged from the model.

How’s it drive?

Ride is the name of the game with the It’s quiet and has a well-sorted to smooth out bumps yet is not overly or hampered with large of body roll. In fact, the car only minimal roll—in crossover terms—on some roads on our drive route in New The brakes were also a point, offering impressive to bring things to a halt fairly solid brake feel. We would like the to offer a more direct because at times it felt way too However, for a long road with the family and luggage, the is a perfect tool to take with roomy enough seating for average-size adults.

We drove the gasoline and diesel of the new car and while the gas engine was adequate, we recommend springing for the Bluetec to get the healthy amount of torque and fuel economy. It took a right foot to get the gasoline-equipped up to speed quick for expressway exercises, but it is fine to motor from stoplights when not in a hurry. On the other hand, the offered great off-the-line which is always appreciated. The transmission offered seamless and quickly goes down the when needed.

Do I want it?

If you put high value in the of your vehicle, carry six or passengers often and don’t driving around a vehicle closely resembles a (gasp!) then yes. The third row can most adults, and even the majority of the interior is unchanged, it is a nice place to be with build quality and it’s put with nice materials.

Again, we strongly suggest for the diesel engine option. The diesel V6 is potent and offers the and better fuel efficiency you will appreciate. And with the for the diesel being only on the current 2010 model the gasoline engine, we see that as well spent.
