Mercedes R-Class MPV 2014 review: http://bit.ly/1dscyDY Subscribe to the Carbuyer YouTube channel: http://bit.ly/17k4fct Subscribe to Auto Express: http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/cb Available in two-wheel-drive short-wheelbase form, or four-wheel-drive long-wheelbase form, the Mercedes R-Class is a big car measuring approximately five metres long. Both the R300 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY and R350 CDI L models come with 3.0-litre diesel engines, producing 190bhp and 265bhp respectively. The R-Class is designed to tempt buyers away from premium SUVs such as the BMW X5 and Range Rover, but it resembles something between a Renault Grand Espace and Mercedes S-Class. It rides very well and soaks up bumps and imperfections in the road with ease, but it struggles when pushed in corners. Both engines are smooth and torquey, and provide effortless cruising and excellent long distance capability. The well appointed interior is both stylish and spacious, which is typical of high-end Mercedes models. As with most large, heavy cars, fuel consumption isn't it strongest point, the cheaper R300 CDI is capable of only 37.2mpg on the combined cycle.
