The prototype snapped in Germany today wears massive disguise at the front and rear. It is rumoured the car will receive a front-end design in the style of the somewhat more friendly B-class people mover. Though we doubt sales of the car will take off like a rocket after this facelift, we still hope it looks a bit friendlier and attractive. The main problem of the R-class, however, can’t be changed by a makeover: the car is too big, too inelegant and much too thirsty.
