 Pros The design and quality of the interior of the 2012 Mercedes-Benz R-Class R350 impressed us during our review. The materials and craftsmanship put into it are top notch and will surely make any driver and passenger feel comfortable and at ease.

 Pros The spacious third row of the 2012 Mercedes-Benz R-Class R350 can seat regular-sized adults without a problem. This is remarkable since most of the crossovers we have reviewed have problems seating people comfortably in the third row.

 Pros The ride and handling of the 2012 Mercedes-Benz R-Class R350 is powerful. When we reviewed and did a test drive, we felt as at ease with the R350 as we do when driving smaller cars.

 Pros There is copious cargo space in the 2012 Mercedes-Benz R-Class R350 compared to other crossover SUVs in the market right now.

 Pros The safety features of the 2012 Mercedes-Benz R-Class R350 are its most impressive selling point based on reviews. This crossover has a plethora of technology that makes the car safe and secure.

 Cons Although the 2012 Mercedes-Benz R-Class R350 is considered a luxury SUV, we feel that its price tag is just expensive compared to the competition. Prices of the R350 start at $52,690 for its 4MATIC crossover base model and $53,840 for its R35- BlueTEC crossover base model.

 Cons Based on our reviews of the 2012 Mercedes-Benz R-Class R350, the doors can swing a little too wide which makes it hard when you're parked in a tight space.

 Cons The non-diesel model of the 2012 Mercedes-Benz R-Class R350 is less fuel efficient compared to competition.

 Cons The exterior design gets mixed-reviews. Some admire the design of the body but others say it has an unattractive "minivan" physique and we would agree. The 2012 Mercedes-Benz R-Class R350 would benefit from a more "manly" design in the future.
