Most Elegant Family Car. — Performance- Slow but it's safe for family. Never get ticket(thank god!) roomy, 7 seating, not too high to enter. Cost of ownership - Gas is no good, M series was little better. Gas is same as Land Rover. Appearance - Big, Not sporty but elegant. Fun factor - Not speedy but good for long family trip.

Pros

Great space in 2nd row seats, 3rd row mainly for kids.  Adequate power for fully loaded car, no lag even with 4 adults and 5 kids in the car!  Comfortable touring car.

Cons

Small cargo space when fully loaded, best to install luggage box on roof.  The front passenger seat has a strange angle, impossible to sleep on a long journey.

Good Family Car For Family Of 5 Or 6. — Sleek looking and extremely comfortable ride, great for road trips. Build quality is excellent as with all Mercedes Benz. It looks much smaller due to the low roof line. The low entry makes it easy for kids to climb in and out of car. Feels extremely safe driving the car. The car has a very comfortable soft ride, so you do not feel every little road bump. It has a surprisingly good Harman Kardon speakers for such a large car, the car itself is pretty sound proof helps a lot.

A Very Useful Mercedes Product — This is a very beautiful family vehicle, a sensible alternative if you are too young for that mini van look or if really don't want that huge suv/truck thing going on. This is vehicle will give you the AWD you desire with the ride and comfort of a sedan. The legendary Mercedes Diesel engine gives plenty of power and excellent reliability mid range acceleration and very spirited highway performance. Though Mercedes has stopped selling the R class , it is worth owning if you want something classy safe and dont want to follow the cookie cutting truck SUV mini van crowd.

Great Family Car. — We bought this used at a great price. It was much cheaper than mini vans with similar miles. So far, it has been very cheap to own. Only asks for service every 12,000 miles or so. Has car seat anchors in 4 seats and room for a 5th seat. Can fit 7 real sized adults in extreme comfort.
