R350 4matic: 16 mpg city, 21 highway
R350 Bluetex 4matic: 18/23
While the R350's EPA ratings of 16 mpg city, 21 highway aren't all that impressive, and about on par with those of chunkier SUVs, we'd venture to say that the R350 Bluetec model's 18/23 ratings give it some green credibility--especially when you consider its three rows of seating, with enough comfort for six adults.
And from our real-world experience--we've seen impressive fuel economy on the highway in the R350 Bluetec and in Mercedes-Benz's other diesel SUVs--you might even do better than those EPA numbers.
Especially in diesel R350 Bluetec form, the R-Class sips fuel and is great for long roadtrips.
