The R-Class also scores heavily as a family car. Junior family members, too, benefit from the extraordinarily generous interior space, with room for up to three child seats in the second seat row. The two outer seats are fitted with ISOFIX child seat anchorage points which enable the seat to be directly anchored to the vehicle body. Even when you need to install a child seat on the front passenger seat, the highest level of safety is provided: the optional child seat recognition system automatically deactivates the front passenger airbag as soon as it detects a child seat on the front passenger seat. You only need to ensure that you use a special child seat equipped with a transponder, which is available as a Mercedes-Benz accessory. So as you see, even a large family will not stretch the R-Class to its limits.
