Mercedes-Benz launched the in India in October last The R-Class is the first full luxury MPV in the country and made its debut in 2006. Based on the GST (Grand Sports Tourer) the R-Class is built on the W251 and is positioned between the M-Class and the It was initially marketed by Mercedes-Benz as a Cruiser and later as a Family we find out exactly what it is in review of the 2011 Mercedes .

Exteriors – At the front end,  the wings, radiator grille, and bumper have been redesigned from the previous In conjunction with bi-xenon a chrome insert enhances the LED daytime driving lights. The of the Mercedes R-Class has marked and is more arrow-shaped at the front The wider, higher radiator is more steeply angled, the bumper cladding is more with clear-cut lines. The recesses in the bumper, where the fog and daytime driving lights are are spaced well apart and the front section an impression of

With the coupé-like lines of the area, the larger exterior housings are set well away the doors and are held by slim The mirror housings in the vehicle have integrated indicator in the form of a stylised arrow. The section continues the design of the front, with a new bumper modified tail lights, a and integrated tailpipe trim the width with more structures, as at the front. The bumper picks up the line of the side giving the effect of a continuous running around the entire Tail lights with LED and optic technology, new exterior and horizontally arranged lighting lend the finishing touches to the section.

Interiors – The interiors of the feature two-tone appointments, the base colour almond can be combines with the contrasting mocha brown. The colour are used on the dashboard, steering centre console, seats, linings and floor coverings. The is very similar to the M-Class, where the R-Class is different is the level of space it offers in all

The R-Class has been positioned as the class of family cars and the justifies the tagline. There is than ample amount of in the second row, almost to that of a luxury car. Get the third row and you will surprised tall people can get in there too and not uncomfortable. Every passenger has got AC around him and lots of cup holders The seats are very comfortable excellent support. The second row of have an LCD each behind the seats, which can play DVD and

The dials and needles have a background and are easy to read. The on the instrument cluster tells you a of details including time, pressure, audio details and other tidbits when the car is any action (i.e. lowering or raised). The Harman Kardon 7 surround sound system is one of the sounding system we have across.

Should you need to carry of luggage, the last row of seats The tail gate has a button when pressed closes the automatically. No need to manual pressure on the lid. It even has a which stops the boot closing should something in between.

Ride, Handling and – A family carrier has to ride and the R-Class does that excellence. The ride can be adjusted to or sport through a button on the console. The low ground clearance can be an on rough roads, but you can increase the of the nose by 2 inches via a button. the car crosses a certain speed, it lowers the car automatically.

The R350 is not by any means but when turned to setting it handles quite for an MPV of this size. The car has various to ensure it goes where you it, including an ESP system with stabilization. What it essentially is, it ensures the driver does not control even when he is a trailer by activating brakes and the back and forth movement of the Not that we would be using feature in India much. have a good amount of but are very sharp and halt two tonne monster in quick

Performance – The R-Class is powered by a V6 petrol engine, which 272 bhp of power at 6000 RPM and 350 NM of torque 2400 – 5000 RPM. all this may sound good for a sports saloon, it is just adequate for a vehicle tipping the at 2.2 tonnes. At lower revvs, the feels underpowered and there is not torque for city driving. you floor the car, response is not quick either and the 7G-Tronic box into the next gear at 5000 RPM. Activate the mode via the paddles on the steering and everything changes. The R-Class all of a senses urgency, it gains very quickly and reaches RPM in no time. The sound at high from this motor is nirvana and in manual mode the motor in the R feels all of a sudden than capable for the job.

However, a petrol powertrain for a MPV seems quite ridiculous. We say so the R-Class delivers a mileage of 5-6 in auto mode, which down to 4-5 kmpl when you using the paddles. We don’t the engine at all, it is a fantastic But it is not suited to a car weighing in excess of kgs. The R-Class also 4Matic, which is Mercedes way of 4-wheel drive. This the car have average off-roading We say average, because even the nose is raised, the R-Class go on slushy terrain.

Conclusion – The R-Class is a fantastic MPV. It has of space, excellent features, lot of equipment and one of the few cars in the market ample amount of space for passengers and luggage. However the could have opted for a engine considering the R-Class is a With petrol prices a petrol powered R-Class not make much sense but for who can afford to run on gasoline, there are few things which you can find at with this luxurious carrier.
