Mercedes R Class 350L 4Matic Long Wheelbase
Added: 15th of September 2018
Our requirements were high quality to last us for 10 years, automatic, estate, heavy and powerful enough to tow a large caravan safely, comfort for every passenger, slide in seating (no climbing up or bending down to enter), and room for the dog at the back. In fact it has more than met our specification, with All Wheel Drive and fully comfortable seating for 6. It was also under £20,000 when we bought it in 2016; good value. Performance is smooth and effortless, good on corners unless you think you're driving a super-mini and it is the easiest car I've had to parallel park - the front and rear audio and visual sensors are utterly reliable. Fuel consumption is better than our previous BMW 525, road tax about the same but insurance is higher. Servicing at an independent specialist is slightly less than the BMW. All in all, I'm really very smug to have found such a suitable vehicle.
