Think of the Mercedes-Benz
R-Class as a great people hauler that has lots of Mercedes luxury and features, but is not much of a looker. Bottom line: it's what inside that counts. Classified as a SUV/Crossover that can fit six or seven passenger, the R-Class is literally a large station wagon. It comes with a choice of engines: a 3.0 liter turbo-diesel V6 with 210 horsepower or a 3.5 liter V6 with 268 horsepower. A 7-speed automatic transmission is standard on both engines.
