I love my R class Mercedes Benz. Certainly the most comfortable and spacious car, perfect for long road trips, and loaded with power. Great boot space and so much leg room ... I fell in love with the R class whilst overseas and could not wait to come back to SA and buy one for myself! Expensive when compared to similar models but worth every cent!
This car ticks all the boxes for me. 4wd but intermediate height so very easy to enter/exit. Incredibly comfortable, minimal wind and road noise. Huge load space with the new 5 seat configuration the last pair of seats now replaced with a very useful underfloor storage box. Very sure footed on variable camber and bumpy B roads. Best of many vehicles I have driven over a notorious stretch that unsettles many. 320D gives more than adequate acceleration and ultra quiet cruising.

Although very nice this car is really an expensive people carrier for 6 people. Build quality & performance are excellent as you would expect.
This is not a cheap car to run by any stretch of the imagination but for the performance and ride you get I think it’s worth it. It’s stuffed to the gills with all the kit you could ever want and it’s simply the nicest way for six people to travel together in comfort.
