Mercedes-Benz R-Class alternatives
Latest model: Mercedes-Benz R-Class 2011
The latest-generation Mercedes-Benz R-class shows a new self-confidence. Its entire look is noticeably more appealing, underlining the original character of this multi-talented car. The focus of the developers was on the completely restyled front section, with an emphasis on width and a horizontally structured bonnet to make the car appear more harmonious, muscular and dynamic.

Mercedes-Benz R-Class details:
At the front end of the Mercedes-Benz R-class, the bonnet, wings, radiator grille, headlamps and bumper have been completely refactored. On request, in conjunction with bi-xenon headlamps, a chrome insert enhances the integrated LED daytime driving lights. The character of the Mercedes Mercedes-Benz R-class can also be underlined by an auxillary, strikingly contoured, chrome-look underguard.
The new bonnet has more marked contours, and is more arrow-shaped at the front edge. The wider, higher radiator grille is more steeply angled, while the bumper cladding is more striking, with clear-cut lines. The side recesses in the bumper, where the fog lamps and daytime driving lights are located, are spaced well apart and give the front section an impression of width. The lines of the side skirts are harmoniously continued forward in the revised wings and grille. The new, dynamic face of the Mercedes-Benz R-class is particularly cool. The newly developed headlamps blend perfectly into the front end, emphasising the horizontal lines. The eyelids continue the beltline along the flanks, and are arranged above the chromed headlamp tubes to produce an assertive, concentrated gaze.
Dynamism is also the order of the day where the side parameter is concerned. With the coupé-like lines of the window space, the luxury tourer distinguishes itself attractively from traditional Mpvs. Eye-catching details of the clearly contoured flanks include the larger look mirror housings, which are set well away from the doors and are held by slim stems. The strikingly developed mirror housings in the car colour have integrated indicator repeaters in the form of a stylised arrow. The new wheel designs are equally eye-catching: the range contains light-alloy wheels in 5-spoke, 5-twin-spoke or 10-spoke designs in sizes from 43. 2 to 53. 3 centimetres (17 to 21 inches).
