Looking for an SUV that’s good for the environment? “Does one exist?” you may ask. It sure does in the Mercedes-Benz R320 CDI! The R320 CDI has a 165 kW, 24-valve CDI (common rail injection) V-6 engine and a 7-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission that is driver adaptable. What really impresses in the Mercedes Benz R-Class 320 CDI is the collosal torque figure of 510 Nm. With this sort of twist, towing a trailer, caravan or boat becomes exceptionally easy.
The R320’s CDI engine reduces exhaust particulates, hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide levels, and its inherent efficiencies yield up to a 30% better fuel economy than comparable petrol engines. This means notably fewer greenhouse gas emissions, and with a range of 965 kilometers on a tank full of petrol, that makes for one impressive SUV!
The Mercedes-Benz R320 doesn’t stop there, either. With a 4MATIC permanent 4-wheel drive system, 4-wheel electronic traction control and Electronic Stability Programme, you are given the best of both worlds. You get a car-like ride with the advantage, control and versatility of an off-road vehicle.
You can also feel safe in the R320 with its dual stage front airbags that adjust the inflation based on the weight of the occupants, while the front and rear side curtain airbags, Integrated Restraint System and rollover protection all mean that you can feel safe and secure.
The interior of the R320 is exceptional, with features like a multifunction steering wheel that contains not only the audio system but the optional phone plus the operation of the multifunction display. The multifunction display not only handles the audio system but the Modular COMMAND system. The optional navigation system and integrated DVD player, as well as telephone integration and Sirius Satellite radio, provide the utmost in convenience. Front seating is 8-way power adjustable with M-B front and rear upholstery. Aluminum and Birdseye Maple wood trim abound throughout.
