2011 Mercedes-Benz R-Class R350 BlueTEC 4dr Wagon AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 7A)


Review

I just purchased my second "R" diesel, a
2011, black and almond.

Many magazine reviews for this car since its introduction categorizes it as some version of a minivan.
Believe me, it is not a minivan by any measure of comparison. It is an SUV, pure and simple! Having owned a MB-GL diesel, a gas ML, and a 2008 R diesel,
I can say it is the best of the three models.

It has more usable room, weighs less, handles better, accelerates faster,
uses less fuel, is more passenger friendly and more comfortable than its MB stablemates.
Plus it is $10,000 cheaper than the comparable GL.


My 08 R had 50,000 miles on it,
all w/o a single mechanical issue or problem.


Best Features

The exterior styling was never my favorite feature, but it has grown on me. The few styling revisions of the 2011 model are so subtle that only the discerning eye can tell the difference. The best option package for this car is the diesel version w/Premium 1, no panoramic roof, heated front seats, trailer tow, second row middle seat, basic roof rail system, and parktronic. The MSRP will be around $60,000. I hope that these comments were a help to those considering purchasing this automobile.

Review

Euromotors Germantown is wonderful. I just purchased my second car from them an R350. Everyone there is always helpful and very friendly. My sales person, Danny, is helpful and knowledgeable. I highly recommend Euromotors Germantown to all my friends & family. I told them to asked for Danny (best). I am so glad to see Charles back with Euromotors. He is pleasant and helpful.

Excellent mileage, great ride, very comfortable seats. I can't think of anything that I do not like about this auto.
