Lovely...a very reliable car

These 4Matic R Classes look stunning in silver or black.

Its a Minivan. I am probably going to get flamed for this because I have friends that are convinced that this is a "SUV" since MBUSA advertises it that way and we always have arguments on this. But I'll say this... .its probably one of the most comfortable MB's on the planet this side of the Maybach. I have sat in the second row and can attest to that.

Thumbs up Spotted : Merc R class

Hi guys,

Spotted a Merc R class - light champagne colour - on BMCC road yesterday. Sadly, i did not get time to get any pics. Also, couldn't see if the car was registered or on test as he just zoomed away, but my guess is it was here for homologation.

Any news on R class being launched in India ????
