Mercedes-Benz’s R-Class is one of those vehicles that exists below the radar. Come on, admit it, when last did you see one on our roads? In total, just 36 examples were sold last year – and 25 of those were of the facelifted version that only went on sale in October, which kind of tells the tale – the pre-facelift model simply did not appeal, hence the makeover. In fairness, though, the monetary recession that followed the model’s launch some three years ago did not help – R-Class is not cheap.
Which of the current Volkswagen R models would get your vote?
