For 2008, rear-wheel-drive is available on the R350, allowing for a slightly smaller entry price of $41,900. The high-performance R500 and R63 AMG versions have been discontinued. Newly optional on all R-Classes is three-passenger second row seating, making it possible to seat seven. Outside, standard AMG body touches and 18-inch wheels add a sporty panache.
Unique body style; very roomy interior with space for up to seven; comfort and luxury.
The 2008 Mercedes-Benz R-Class is a roomy vehicle and an unusual, luxurious alternative to either a minivan or sport utility vehicle. Overall, it's one of the best vehicles for transporting a large number of people (up to seven) in comfort. A newly available rear-wheel-drive version and the discontinuation of the high-performance R500 and R63 AMG versions render the R-Class strictly a luxury people-mover. The R320 CDI, with its efficient turbo-diesel engine, promises to be as efficient as a minivan at the pump.
