Mercedes-Benz R-Class

BASE PRICE RANGE: $51,115-$52,615
BODY TYPE: Midsize/Luxury Minivan

WHAT'S NEW: A restyle gives the R-Class more crossover-like looks. There's a more rugged-looking grille, restyled hood, fenders, side mirrors, new headlights, and LED taillights. Inside, there is new wood trim, new seat stitching, a 3-D instrument cluster, and "saddle" head restraints. Daytime running lights and blind-spot assist are now available.

COOL FACT: Mercedes originally offered an AMG-tuned version of the R-Class, which was powered by a 503-hp, 6.2L V-8.

SUM UP: Lincoln MKT'S closest competitor.
RATING: ***
