Auto experts at TheCarConnection.com note no shortage of extra equipment for the 2008 Mercedes-Benz R-Class.
According to Cars.com, "privacy glass is standard" in every Mercedes-Benz R-Class, and "a single-lift tailgate is installed...weather-band reception is included in the standard radio, which has a single-CD slot and controls for optional satellite radio," while "an auxiliary plug in the glove box connects to MP3 players." Edmunds adds the following as standard 2008 Mercedes-Benz R-Class luxury equipment: "power front seats, easy fold-down second- and third-row seats, eight-speaker audio system with auxiliary audio input and a retractable cargo cover." Oddly, the standard upholstery on the R-Class is vinyl; leather is optional.
Kelley Blue Book reports "options abound on the [Mercedes-Benz] R-Class." Options for this Mercedes-Benz 2008 model are indeed plentiful, but pricey; Car and Driver recommends that consumers "be careful when cruising the long list of optional temptations."
According to Cars.com, these temptations include "optional flat-screen monitors built into the back of the front head restraints [that] can provide entertainment for rear passengers." Edmunds notes that "most desirable [Mercedes-Benz R-Class] options are rolled into pricey packages, although a handful can be selected a la carte...available [Mercedes-Benz 2008] accoutrements include a panoramic glass sunroof, 19- or 20-inch wheels, Bluetooth, keyless ignition, heated seats and steering wheel, a power rear liftgate, three-zone climate control, a rear-seat entertainment system, adaptive cruise control, and glovebox-mounted six-CD changer and dedicated iPod interface."
The 2008 Mercedes-Benz R-Class can be outfitted quite lavishly—and expensively.
