Expert Quotes:

the available Panorama glass roof is a must-have that opens up the interior space
Motor Trend

leatherette is standard and leather costs extra
Automobile Magazine

Three-zone climate control, a panoramic sunroof, and rear-seat entertainment are among some of the stand-alone options
Car and Driver

high on our wish list is an updated navigation system, as the current incarnation with its undersized and graphically so-so display is definitely a full cut below those found in more recently redesigned M-B models
Kelley Blue Book

Our biggest gripe is that the nav screen is still located low on the dash

The 2011
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.


The 2011 Mercedes-Benz R-Class breaks no new ground for a luxury vehicle, and the COMAND interface is a little kludgy, but everything you'd expect is there.

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.
