Mercedes-Benz R-Class certainly doesn't disappoint in terms of features; it's
as well equipped as any other luxury vehicle. The R-Class can be optioned up to
include an SD card slot, 4GB of music storage, and an iPod interface, along
with Harman Kardon surround sound. A long list of options and packages include
an air suspension, adaptive damping, heated active front seats, and a rear-seat
entertainment system. Shoppers should be aware, though, that loading up on the
options will add nearly 10 grand to the sticker price.
Next to some of
the latest infotainment systems, with bright, large touch screens,
Mercedes-Benz’s COMAND system is beginning to feel dated. Though drivers can navigate
to the menus from either a control on the dash or from the steering wheel, the
menus for some frequently accessed functions (like zooming in or out in a
nav-system map) are less straightforward than they should be.
