Is it a minivan? An SUV? A station wagon? Whichever you choose, at least it's still a Mercedes-Benz.
The new 2006 Mercedes R350 begs a classification-or does it? Perhaps its happy just being a Mercedes. The SUV (we'll use Mercedes' classification for now) has a 3.5-liter V6 rated at 268 horsepower and 258 lb/ft of torque. A 7-speed automatic transmission comes standard, and fuel economy is rated at 16 city/21 highway.
The interior has a luxurious feel typical of a Mercedes. As a crossover/SUV/station wagon, it also seems to account well for the influx of children many owners of this car note they have. Reviewers of this car love the spaciousness and safety of this vehicle, saying their feel their children are safe, and everybody is comfortable. They applaud a smooth, quiet ride.

The new 2006 Mercedes R500 enters into the SUV/crossover market as the latest near-unclassifiable SUV/crossover/station wagon. This crossover has an advantage over many of the other players: it's a Mercedes.
The 2006 R500 has an edge over its less expensive and similarly less powerful sibling, the R350. The 5.0-liter V8 in the R500 packs quite a punch: 302 horsepower and 339 lb/ft of torque. Not bad for a crossover. (Station wagon?)
Safety is excellent in the R500, as it is in most of Mercedes' cars. Airbags are ample, coming at you for the driver, passenger, and everybody's sides.
The R500 goes from 0-60 in 6.67 seconds, much to the delight of its drivers. Drivers of this car love the peppy feel of it, yet also love the safety factor just as much. It is popular among the family set, with moms lauding the comfortable seats for them and the child-seat-ready back seats for the kids. Some have complained about the poor mileage (13 city/18 highway).
