2009 Mercedes-Benz R-Class R320 BlueTEC 4dr Wagon AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 7A)


If MB had a S class wagon this would be it. With a family of 5, this car works. The kids do ask about the impact of a car of the earth..so with a SL500 in the garage, I had to do something. The Bluetec power is more useful than the numbers would suggest with very good passing power once underway. Build quality is first rate. With a heavy foot I'm getting 20- 22 mpg in the city and just over 28 mpg on the highway. This is a 5000 lbs car and every crossover/suv this size should have this type of engine. It just plain works and makes sense. Has unmatched safety features in the crossover/suv class. You get what you pay for..will have this one for 10 years.

Best Features

Handles well, great interior and second row seating is limo like. Kids love it. Seven speed transmission keeps the engine in a useful RPM range at all speeds around town. The torque of this engine makes this engine/vehicle combo work.

Worst Features

Would like a knob and not a menu item to dim the display screen.
