The new-generation R-Class - PART II


Stuttgart, Germany, Jun 11, 2010

2010 R-Class: model range and appointment variants*: Diverse, comfortable and fully equipped

The new R-Class enhances the merits of this vehicle category even further. In addition to the fresh exterior, the R-Class also impresses with a number of interior features in particular. These include the good use of space found in the latest MPVs and the comfort, high-class appeal and prestige of the S‑Class. At the same time, this latest generation offers the interior versatility for which its predecessor was renowned, while also boasting the robustness and all-wheel-drive properties of Mercedes-Benz SUVs.

With a total of 9 base versions, the R-Class provides the most comprehensive model range in the premium segment of luxury tourers. Together with the significantly more appealing body design, the complete range of standard equipment and the numerous individualisation options, the R-Class can be tailored specifically to meet individual requirements. If there was such a thing as a vehicle versatility test, then the R-Class would certainly be the favourite to take first place.

An overview of the models:
R 300
R 350 4MATIC

Long-wheelbase models:
R 350 BlueTEC 4MATIC
