The 2011 Mercedes-Benz R350 is fancy but do the kids really care?


The 2011 Mercedes-Benz R350 is fancy. But the kids could care less. They care that the R350 may singlehandedly be reviving the American pastime of drive-in movies for our family. And truth be told, I’m pretty excited about that too.

The comfortable seats, dual moonroofs, and the abundance of personal space make this reviewer give the R350 two thumbs up. It is certainly a pleasure to be in. But it is still a lot of car. As with any vehicle with three rows, the R350 is as long as my driveway. But how does it handle, how does it ride? And how much will that matter when it’s such a pleasure to be in?


I’ll let you know if the features and ambiance of the R350 will keep this reviewer’s thumbs up, or if they head south after driving it for a week. Check back for my full review of the R350 here on
