The R-Class “sports tourer” was introduced in 2006 as an all-new model. It resembles a slightly sportier and more aerodynamic wagon with conventional passenger-car doors — not unlike the Chrysler Pacifica. For 2007, a high-performance R63 AMG with 507 horsepower and a diesel-powered R320 CDI are added to the lineup. Base R350s come with a 268-hp V-6 while the R500 comes with a 302-hp, 5.0-liter V-8 engine. Both engines are fitted to a new seven-speed automatic transmission with touch-shift capability and Mercedes’ full-time 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system. Four-wheel disc brakes with ABS and Brake Assist are included, as is Mercedes’ Electronic Stability Program. The vehicle offers a roomy passenger cabin that seats six adults in three rows of seats; the two rear pairs of seats can fold flat to accommodate various cargo configurations. Side-curtain airbags are included that span all three seating rows — and a rollover sensor can deploy the seatbelt tensioners and the curtain airbags if the vehicle senses that a rollover is about to occur.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
