2006 Mercedes-Benz R-Class R500 4dr Wagon AWD (5.0L 8cyl 7A)


We just completed our first road trip in our new Mercedes R500. Our experience with the vehicle has been outstanding. We traded in a 2004 Acura MDX because we needed more rear seat space and the R500 clearly delivers. It motors the six of us comfortably and safely. We actually went to the dealership to look at the new GL 450 but were impressed with the size and quality of the R500. Our R500 drives and handles solidly and is good in town and on the highway. Since picking up our R500 we have averaged 17.1 mpg in combined driving and got just over 20 mpg on the highway in Sport Mode. We have only seen one other Mercedes R- Class on the road since purchasing ours almost two weeks ago.

Best Features

Solid V8 engine, abundant leg room for six adults, Sirius radio, Command Center, dual-mode automatic transmission (Comfort or Sport), uniqueness

Worst Features

Seats could be a little deeper for tall individuals.
