We commend Mercedes-Benz for taking a risk and rolling out the R-Class, which straddles the line between wagon and SUV. However, taking a risk means there is a chance for failure, and the R-Class has never set the sales charts ablaze. In its final year on sale in the U.S., the three-row R moved fewer than 1500 copies. American buyers looking for a three-row Mercedes will now be pointed to the GL SUV; however, the R-Class will continue to live on in China.
