I have owned other Mercedes my last was a ML500.When the lease was over I though of another but then decided on the New R. Looked at the 500 R but when I drove the 350 I found it was just fine the power no need for the bigger engine. I have found it to be a excellent car and the new 350 engine execellent in power and gas milage. It offers all of the SUV I had plus handles like a car. I am glad I made this choice and the lease offer thru my dealer was fine.
Like the handling and the air ride the nav and radio sound and the interior layout
