Can I drive my Mercedes R350 in the sand at the beach?

Asked by Mar 03, 2016 at 08:54 PM about the 2010 Mercedes-Benz R-Class R 350 BlueTEC

Question type: General

We are going Camping on Carolina Beach and want to drive with all the kids so
we're taking our Mercedes 350 which is an AWD but it doesn't have much
clearance so I'm nervous. I don't want to be "that family" who gets stuck in the
sand! I see subarus but our car is much heavier. Does anybody have
experience with this? Thank you!

No experience, but I wouldn't. A friend would go to the outer banks with his lifted jeep Cherokee and see plenty of AWD's stuck. Deep sand and AWD is a recipe to get stuck, only for 4x4's with tires at low pressure. Up to you if you want to risk it.
