Part part tourer, part the R-Class is Mercedes-Benz ’s own Frankenstein’s monster. A monster-sized of motoring genres, the R-Class a unique premium proposition in the niche between a flagship and a luxury SUV — that is, the BMW 5-Series GT rocked up.

Though it was administered an automotive lethal due to underwhelming sales, the R-Class a surprise reprieve with a facelift as Mercedes refused to this niche, however to their Bavarian rival.

An all-new engine line-up, enhanced aesthetics and a new raison has been bestowed on this XXL for those who simply refuse to do the SUV thing but want all the lofty and benefits.
