Mercedes-Benz is one of, if not the, oldest surviving automakers in the world. Founded in 1881, the first Mercedes automobile was created in 1886. The German company is now operated by Daimler-Benz and headquartered in Stuttgart, Germany. In addition to producing automobiles, Mercedes-Benz also makes commercial trucks and buses in Europe.

    Official: 2015 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG Coupe bringing big, fast style to New York
    1395216000

    The 2015 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe is gorgeous. That's a fact. We fell in love with it in concept form at the Frankfurt Motor Show last fall, and swooned over its production-ready body at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this month. For the New York Auto Show in April, Mercedes will once again show off its CL-no-more flagship two-door, but this time, with ...

    Apple's CarPlay infotainment system hasn't made it into a single vehicle yet, and it's already drawing criticism for distracting drivers among safety advocates. The new tech unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show pairs users' iPhones with the car's dashboard display to make calls, dictate messages and listen to music. Some automakers, like Volvo, also let ...

    ETC: Mercedes SL R129 is a quarter-century-old revolutionary
    1394222280

    It's been 25 years since Mercedes-Benz took the wraps off its R129-series SL roadster at the 1989 Geneva Motor Show. While it may look dated now, it was a revolutionary product in its day – a day that lasted a good eleven years. Compared to the R107 series it replaced, the R129 was a technological tour de force. Though the shape may appear boxy to ...

    Geneva: Mercedes sprints in with new V-Class
    1394055600

    Mercedes-Benz is largely known for two things, particularly in the United States: one is luxury automobiles, and the other – thanks largely to the proliferation of the Sprinter – is vans. The vehicle you see here combines both competences into one tidy package, debuting here at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. It's called the V-Class, and it ...

    Mercedes-Benz might be going through a new design renaissance. With the S-Class Coupe, it has shown that it can simultaneously create a wonderful design that still looks unmistakably like a Mercedes. The coupe is receiving its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show, and it's just as handsome live as it was in press photos. It is a handsome combination of ...

    Mercedes-Benz S500 Plug-in Hybrid ready for 'major role' in urban areas
    1389963360

    We finally got a clear look at the Mercedes-Benz S500 Plug-in Hybrid at the Frankfurt Motor Show last fall, but it took until this week to learn what the vision (see what we did there) is that Mercedes-Benz has for the PHEV. Despite it's generous size, Mercedes thinks this is a vehicle that will work well in urban areas. Speaking to members of the media ...

    You're looking at the absolute top-of-the-line model from Mercedes-Benz. Now that there's no longer a Maybach brand, this sedan, which proudly wears the three-pointed star on its massively chromed-out front grille, is left to grab the dollars and cents of wealthy shoppers – customers in North America and Asia in particular, says MB – who'd ...

    Mercedes-Benz has finally rolled out the production version of its GLA45 AMG, and, well... it looks pretty much exactly the same as the concept version we saw in Los Angeles. While that's not necessarily a bad thing, we'd definitely opt for the more sedate silver version (below) that we've seen in the automaker's own images as opposed to the kitted-out ...

    Report: Are you the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S600?
    1389383880

    If you're hankering for a V12-powered Mercedes-Benz S-Class, there's very, very little to complain about in regards to the 621-horsepower, 738-pound-foot S65 AMG. That car will hit 60 in just 4.2 seconds and embarrass a fair few sports cars along the way. What if you need a bit more relaxed power delivery, though, but aren't willing to associate with the ...

    In an age when luxury was all about sheltering the fortunate from the world around them, companies like Mercedes-Benz were satisfied simply to coddle their drivers and passengers in cocoons of leather and wood.

    Thanks to a decade of European crossovers with torrid performance, downsized engines with outsized performance and a mushrooming compact SUV segment, it's no longer the marvel it should be when we receive the specs on the 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA45 AMG. Well, almost not a marvel, because they've really put a point on this one: underhood is a turbocharged, ...

But if you want to see a preview of what it'll look like, look no further than the AMG aero kit that has just surfaced. Expected to debut on the new C-Class at the fast-approaching Detroit Auto ...

    Once known as the "baby Benz," the Mercedes C-Class has since been undercut by the hot-selling CLA. But don't think for a minute that means Mercedes has given up on the C-Class – which is, after all, its top-selling model line. In fact, since introducing the current C-Class in 2007, Mercedes has sold nearly two and a half million of them around the ...

    This is one of those moments when we hate to see it leave, but we love to see it go. The subject at hand is, of course, the brilliantly brutal Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, the first vehicle developed fully by AMG. Last week we learned that Mercedes will cease to produce the company's flagship sportscar and send it off with a limited-edition model, the SLS AMG ...
