It's not too much different from taking say BART in the Bay Area or a Party Bus, train etc. That said I remember my aunts old Legacy wagon had rear facing jump seats. My cousin and I loved to fight our little sisters for the right to sit there haha

interesting, the interior is nice but i am not sure about the car overall. plus i personally think it's better to have 2nd row facing forward. but maybe these seats can rotate

My sentiments as well regarding interior. Exterior is just a bit odd, perhaps because this is from MBZ. I too would like to know if the 2nd row is adjustable facing front/back

i almost think if the outside looks more like the r-class i would like it more. i am never a fan of the sprinter exterior and this just looks too similar to that haha

Despite it's poor sales and a majority of the buyers that would no doubt disagree with me, the R-Class was a favorite of mine especially in R63 AMG guise

should sell really well in asia, rode in a few in China and in Thailand. At least this looks like a proper benz inside, unlike the old one

Damn that looks epic.

With that said, I wonder if there is an AMG version in-the-works

Should work well for the black car industry, lots of limos in the Chicago area are MKT, R Class, Navigators. This should work well in that department.

"Executive" livery operators yeah, that's all I can really think of yeah....

For regular people buying a family minivan, the Odyssey looks way better than this van does and will probably cost a whole lot less. Even the Sienna looks better. Its lines and shape look a lot more like the Nissan Quest, which doesn't sell at all. Of course there's tons of people in my area who always have the latest Odyssey minivan. I can't believe how quickly the previous gen disappeared from my area as soon as the current one came out. Nearly vanished in the blink of an eye. Maybe some of these people will upgrade to a Benz? Dunno. Looks pretty tall too. Wonder if it will fit in people's garages? They didn't actually show it in a garage. Hmmm....

Wonder what powertrains they'll offer in the U.S.?
