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 light by any means but turned to sports setting it quite sharply for an MPV of this The car has various systems to ensure it where you point it, including an ESP with trailer stabilization. it essentially does is, it ensures the does not loose control when he is towing a trailer by brakes and controlling the back and movement of the trailer. Not that we be using this feature in much. Brakes have a amount of play but are very and halt this two tonne in quick time.

Performance – The is powered by a 3498cc V6 petrol which produces 272 bhp of power at RPM and 350 NM of torque between 2400 – RPM. While all this may good enough for a sports it is just about adequate for a tipping the scales at 2.2 tonnes. At revvs, the R350 feels and there is not much torque for driving. When you floor the response is not that quick and the 7G-Tronic box shifts into the gear at just 5000 Activate the manual mode via the on the steering wheel and everything The R-Class all of a sudden senses it gains revvs very and reaches 6800 RPM in no time. The at high revvs from motor is absolute  nirvana and in mode the gasoline motor in the R all of a sudden more than 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 Mercedes-Benz R-Class is a MPV. It has loads of space, features, lot of safety equipment and one of the few in the market with ample of space for both passengers and However the company could opted for a diesel engine the R-Class is a CBU. With prices rising, a petrol R-Class does not make sense but for those who can afford to run on there are very few things you can find at fault with luxurious people carrier.
