    Facelifted R-Class



    The article says the R-Class is the big brother of the GLK which I suppose is true, however the lines of the R scream station wagon, not SUV or CUV. Classification aside, the vehicle gets a much much needed tweak complete with LEDs.

    Tandis que son p'tit frère, le GLK, se vend comme des p'tits pains chauds, le mastodonte Classe R de Mercedes-Benz passe de plus en plus dans l'ombre des autres véhicules utilitaires sport de la marque.

    Le R était dû pour recevoir des changements importants, mais il reçoit plutôt des réaménagements esthétiques et techniques que l'on peut considérer comme une saine évolution, surtout pas une révolution.

    Côté esthétique, il profite d'une section avant redessinée qui lui accorde un peu plus de charme et de grâce par rapport à la présentation antérieure. Avec sa nouvelle calandre, ses phares redessinés afin de pouvoir faire de la place à des feux LED et son pare-choc avant plus abouti, cette nouvelle déclinaison du Classe R se donne un look qui se rapproche beaucoup de celui du modèle GLK. A l'arrière, les feux de position ont été redessinés. Nonobstant l'arrivée de nouvelles couleurs, de nouveaux tissus et recouvrements, l'intérieur demeure quasiment inchangé.

    Les motorisations offertes en Amérique demeurent fidèles à ce modèle très haut de gamme. On y retrouve un V6 de 3,0 litres BlueTEC turbo qui développe 210 chevaux et 400 lb-pi de couple et un V6 de 3,5 litres atmosphérique de 268 chevaux et 258 lb-pi de couple. Bien que ces moteurs annoncent à priori peu de changements, cela n'a pas empêché les ingénieurs de la marque de leur apporter suffisamment de modifications afin qu'ils puissent, dit-on, offrir une meilleure consommation de carburant.

    Les Mercedes-Benz de Classe R demeurent fidèles à l'approche technologique 4MATIC si chère à la marque à l'étoile d'argent.

    The GL is the GLK's big brother!

    i used to hate the way it looked because of the front end ....mostly

    now, I love it. The front looks awesome now.....the back, still not great but passable.

    This is an alternative(more expansive one) to the top of the line Routan, Town & Country, Oddissey and Sienna so of course people here see no use for it. If I'd have 3+ kids and enough money for it, I'd definitely rock one of these.

    R isn't sold as a SW, it's too high, it's a profiled suv, or multisegment.
    Here is the SW sls concept, which isn't great but truly a station.




    They also have the e class sw. The before last one (don't know about the new one) had 7 seats like the old gettho volvo and chevy caprice. I tried them however, it's for kids. The old e class also had full cloth B pillars and cloth in the botton of the door, it was great looking. They replaced the bottom part of the b pillar with cheap plastic.

    don't laugh but i looked at getting an r63 but they are very rare and people kept telling me it looked like hearse.

    in the end I picked up another car but I still remember when i was at the montreal grand prix seeing an r63 rip it up with that nice supercharged v8.. what an awesome sound for a 'grocery getter'
