Mercedes press release :
The new-generation R-Class has the appearance of
being cast from a single mould. The completely redesigned front end with
its restyled bonnet, wings, radiator grille, headlamps and bumper gives
the entire vehicle a harmonious, dynamic and powerful presence. On
request, the front end of the R-Class can be further enhanced by a
chrome clasp with integrated daytime driving lights in conjunction with
bi-xenon headlamps. Light-alloy wheels in a 5-spoke, 5-twin-spoke or
10-spoke design with sizes from 43.2 to 53.3 centimetres (17 to 21
inches) and the revised rear end with its new bumper cladding, modified
tail lights and integrated exhaust tailpipes likewise increase the
attractiveness of the model-year 2010 R-Class. In addition to the
fresher exterior, it is the inner values of the R‑Class that impress.
These include the economy of space of modern MPVs combined with the high
quality and prestige of classic Mercedes-Benz saloon cars. At the same
time the latest generation offers the interior variability of its
predecessor, while scoring with the robustness and all-wheel drive
attributes of the Mercedes-Benz SUVs.
 
Drive system with a high economy and fun
factor

 
In addition to the smooth, powerful and
comfort-enhancing petrol engines adopted from the preceding model,
optimised diesel units increase the attractiveness of the R-Class. The
basic R 300 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY model impresses with its harmonious power
delivery and consumes only 7.6 l/100 km**. The R 350 CDI 4MATIC
combines the performance of a V8 model with the fuel economy of a V6
variant, and is happy with 8.5 litres** of diesel per 100 kilometres.
The diesel engine developing 195 kW (265 hp) and a torque of 620 newton
metres catapults the most sporty of the diesel R-Class models from 0 to
100 km/h in just 7.6 seconds, with a top speed of 235 km/h. And the R
350 BlueTEC 4MATIC is one of the cleanest diesel ­models worldwide. This
model with AdBlue© emissions control consumes 8.4 litres** of diesel
per 100 kilo­metres, and has emissions at the same, low level as a
comparable of a petrol model. As a result, this model already meets the
EU-6 exhaust emission standard envisaged for 2014. All the other petrol
and diesel versions of the R-Class comply with the
EU-5 standard.
 
** combined NEDC consumption
 
All R-Class models are equipped with the
latest-generation 7G-TRONIC automatic transmission. This fuel-efficiency
transmission has bearings and clutches
designed for minimum
friction. Modified oil pressures and a new low-friction oil reduce
friction and churning losses. The new torque converter operates
particularly efficiently, and therefore saves fuel, thanks to its
slip-reduced lockup clutch. In addition, the power decoupling function
at standstill in D reduces fuel consumption. This technical feature
reduces the transmission’s input torque when the car is stationary, for
example at traffic lights.
 
Extensive model range with nine basic
versions

 
With a total of nine basic versions, the R-Class
offers the widest model range in the premium touring saloon segment.
Thanks to its attractive body design, comprehensive standard features
and numerous individualisation options, the R-Class can be tailored to
suit individual preferences. The seating variants provide a particularly
wide scope: specifically designed for comfortable and safe touring, the
saloon has five seats in both the standard and long-wheelbase versions,
but configurations with four, six or seven seats are also possible. The
R-Class offers a further advantage in the form of a large, flexibly
usable luggage compartment: luggage capacity is up to 1950 litres in the
versions with the standard wheelbase, and the long-wheelbase version
provides 2385 litres. The optional EASY PACK tailgate with switch or
key-operated remote control allows easier access to the luggage
compartment. All this makes the R-Class the most variable and spacious
model in the Mercedes-Benz passenger car range.
In the airy, high-quality interior, which gives
an even more spacious impression with the optional panoramic glass
sunroof, new materials and colour schemes improve value perception and
quality even further. Standard features include an upholstery
combination of Aspen fabric and breathable, pleasant-feeling ARTICO
man-made leather. The interior colour schemes are new, with almond beige
available in combination with mocha brown, or alpaca grey with basalt
grey. Alternatively the interior can be enhanced even further with a
two-tone colour scheme, in which case almond beige and black or alpaca
grey and black form an interesting contrast.
 
Comprehensive standard equipment,
attractive pricing

 
The price range for the R-Class model series
starts at Euro 42,100 for the  R 300. All the models feature numerous
details as standard that make for safe and relaxed driving on both
long-distance journeys and on short trips into town. These include the
anticipatory occupant proitection system PRE-SAFE®, eight airbags,
crash-responsive NECK-PRO head restraints, a tyre pressure warning
system and adaptive brake lights. Safety is also augmented by efficient,
user-friendly telematic systems such as Audio 20, Audio 50 APS or
COMAND APS. THERMATIC automatic climate control is also standard
equipment, as is an AUX-IN connection for external audio or
entertainment devices.
 
In addition to the extensive standard features,
the R-Class has numerous assistance ­systems which ensure ride comfort
and safety at the highest level, and underline the leading position of
the model series in this market segment. These include DISTRONIC
proximity control, AIRMATIC air suspension with the Adaptive Damping
System ADS or Blind Sport Assist, which is available for this model
series for the first time and can make lane-changes much safer. The
LINGUATRONIC voice-operated control system makes for easy and convenient
operation of the telematics, while a reversing camera allows confident
parking and manoeuvring in awkward spaces. The rear seat entertainment
system enables passengers in the rear to enjoy their own onboard
entertainment programme.
