Mercedes-Benz R-Class: First drive report

Mercedes-Benz R-Class

Interesting first drive report here with the Mercedes-Benz R-Class, Germany’s most comfortable people-mover.

The Mercedes-Benz R-Class is a hard vehicle to classify. It has the size of an SUV, the looks of a minivan and the carlike unibody structure of a crossover. But it’s not really any of them. It’s roomier than your typical crossover, doesn’t have sliding side doors like a minivan, and drives like a car, not a wonky SUV.

No matter how you categorize it, though, one fact remains the same: The R-Class has been the roomiest and most comfortable European-made people-mover since it was introduced to the public as a 2006 model year vehicle.
