Mercedes has announced plans to introduce a special Grand Edition trim package for the wildly unsuccessful R-Class.

Available this fall, the new package features exclusive 20-inch AMG wheels, thermally insulated blue-tint windows, bi-xenon headlamps with dynamic active light and cornering light functions, LED daytime driving lights, and darkened rear taillights. On the inside, Grand Edition R-Classes come with anthracite wood trim, an AMG sports steering wheel with paddle shifters, stainless steel pedals, and plenty of Grand Edition badging.

While we doubt many buyers will shell out €3,300 for a gloried design package, it's nice to see Mercedes trying to remind us the R-Class still exists.
