R Class is a great value

I recently leased an R Class and so far am pleased with my choice. I have two very young boys (5 months and 16 months) so I wanted a car that could easily accommodate 2 car seats, included the in seat DVD screens, had power and delivered a nice ride. After years of driving an SUV, I needed something lower to make it easier to get the kids in and out of the car. The car is a little odd looking, but the interior more than makes up for this. It's really lovely and spacious. Rear camera and parking sensors make parking the car very easy. My most recent car was a Range Rover Sport... while The R Class doesn't have near the pick up of the Rover, the rest of the experience exceeds the Rover as far interior space and comfort. If you're a mom, a really tall guy, or happen to be someone that totes a lot of stuff around town (i.e. an interior designer) this car might be for you. Finally, Mercedes has great incentives on the R Class right now. I was able to get into a lease for very little down, and my payments are nearly $400 less per month than my Rover.
Review of 2009 Mercedes-Benz R-Class

I love this so much I'm buying a second one. I enjoy it more than my SL500 and my Lexus LX570. The milage is amazing. Great to fill up every 5-6 hundred miles. Not available w/leather so I had them made for me! The tiny diesel with AMAZING torque has plenty of power. I bought it for interior space and am very pleased. The leg room in the 3rd row is better than the Lexus in the second row, and they off set the 3rd seat so passangers look right through the front two rows. I wish we had some of the more deluxe options that are standard on the SL, like the fabulous seats, but the MTex interior is functional, and probably preferred for normal hauling. My brother in law recommended it to me-he bought an e-class diesel also he was so impressed. Don't let the diesel thing scare you off! You've got 5-6 hundred miles to find the next station. Across the country with NO problem. When it gets between 2 & 2&1/2 times the milage of the average SUV the slight additional charge for fuel is not to be considered. OK-a little hokey looking, but as US comes around it will ******* just recognition! I tried to buy US but couldn't do it! The FLEX doesn't even sell a telescoping Steering wheel! Navigator and Escalade LOUSEY interior space or appointments. Ride and feel of this vehicle is GREAT! Oh-I got used to Nav. Aid-certainly ******** best feature, but I use a Tom-Tom from car to car anyway, even though all my cars have built in nav aids.
