2015 Mercedes-Benz C300 4MATIC Review

2015 Mercedes-Benz C300 4MATIC Review

“Hey, you sure that is a C-Class and not an S-Class?”  This was the question I asked when my local dealer pointed to the new 2015 Mercedes-Benz C300 4MATIC on the lot. I must say, from the basic profile, it looks like somebody at Mercedes-Benz took the CAD design of the S-Class, re-sized it to […]

First Look: 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC

First Look: 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC

If I asked you to describe the current Mercedes-Benz GLK compact crossover in one word, what would it be? I personally would describe it as a brick. If I could choose another, then it would be “old-fashioned” because the GLK looks like a stereotypical SUV with chunky, squared-off wheel arches, and a three box design which mostly […]

First Look: 2016 Mercedes-Benz G-Class

The first generation of the G-Class entered production in 1979 as an German alternative to the popular Willys Jeep.

Since its debut, Mercedes-Benz has been gradually transforming this military vehicle into a uber luxurious sport utility vehicle by mildly […]

It only took a decade for Mercedes-Benz to enter the whole crossover-based-coupe arena after BMW, but boy, have the boys from Benz arrived.  Late last year at the 2014 LA Auto Show and earlier this year at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, Mercedes-Benz fired their guns towards BMW’s X6 by unveiling the new GLE-class crossover […]

What Is With All These Quasi-SUV Hatchback Cars??

What Is With All These Quasi-SUV Hatchback Cars??

Has anyone else noticed that we are neck deep in lifted, four door, wannabe suv cars all of the sudden?  What is with all these quasi-SUV hatchback cars? It seemed to start with the SUV based X6 in 2008. BMW took the perfectly good X5 and made it less useful. It had its roof hacked […]

S600 Maybach Edition, Maybe the Merc Badge Will Make People Care

S600 Maybach Edition, Maybe the Merc Badge Will Make People Care

Back in 1997, Daimler (owners of Mercedes) decided to throw their already expensive hat (an S600 was over $130k then) into ultra luxury transportation. The big competition was Rolls-Royce, not really doing so hot at the time, and Bentley, same story as Rolls. I am not sure what Daimler saw in that market but they thought there […]

Mercedes GLE – Arch Enemy of the X6 – at NAIAS 2015

Whenever the apocalypse happens, some will want a stylish ride – something jacked up a few inches and a coupe like body style. Until now, your only true option was the BMW X6 and the world may have though that was enough.  It turns out that BMW is selling a fair number of their high […]
