Now that we've already seen (and driven) the new-for-2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class in its standard, S550 form, it's time to set our sights on the rest of the model range. The next iteration to make its debut is this, the S63 AMG, taking the stage here in Frankfurt. No, the S63 isn't quite the top dog in the S-Class lineup – that'd be the S65 AMG, or ...
The Mercedes-Benz stand here in Frankfurt was indeed buzzing following the debut of the swoopy S-Class Coupe Concept, but another big debut from the German automaker came in the form of this, the 2015 GLA-Class compact crossover. As its nomenclature would suggest, the GLA is essentially a high-riding version of the A-Class (or CLA-Class) compact, and ...
Mercedes-Benz trotted out its CLA45 AMG-based racer at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. We first showed you the sedan in the deluge of news and reveals that precedes most good auto shows, and were blown away by the car, formally known as the CLA45 AMG Racing Series. We were strolling by the Mercedes stand, and figured we'd pop in and take a look at the new ...
Back in July, we drove the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class and called it the segment's "new standard bearer" thanks to its heady mix of technologies and sybaritic accoutrements. And while we came away from the new S-Class thinking the new generation had visually improved on its predecessor, we were still left wanting a more dynamic styling statement. That ...
We didn't think things could get any more bonkers when Mercedes-Benz released the G63 AMG 6x6. But that's before we landed in Frankfurt and saw what Brabus has done with the beast. The Benz tuner par excellence has applied its B63S performance package to increase the 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8's output from 536 horsepower up to 690 and from 561 pound-feet ...
There are no fancy names or overly conceptual styling gimmicks that leave any doubt as to what Mercedes just revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show. With the exception of a few minor alterations here and there, the Concept S-Class Coupe gives us a thinly veiled look at the long-awaited replacement for the CL-Class, the all-new S-Class Coupe. As we would ...
Mercedes-Benz is taking the wraps off its Concept S-Class Coupe tomorrow at the Frankfurt Motor Show, but until then, it has released a short teaser video for its new concept car. Hinting at the direction of the replacement for the Mercedes CL-Class, the brief glimpses we get of the S-Class Coupe are very promising. The video clearly shows the concept's ...
On any given weekend, you can expect to see the Three-Pointed Star racing somewhere. It could be in Formula One, DTM, V8 Supercars or any of the myriad sportscar racing series where customer teams compete in the SLS AMG GT3. But now it looks like Mercedes-Benz is gearing up to add one more. This time, it's based on one of its newest and smallest models: ...
Mercedes-Benz has moved into the Caravan Salon 2013 held in Düsseldorf, Germany with several new live-in showcases, starting with the Sprinter Caravan Concept. The tall-boy cargo van has been turned into a cut-away model with a kitchen with gloss-white fixtures, a living area, a bathroom with integrated wardrobe, front seats that can swivel all the ...
Here we have another look at the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, and in a silver hue it shows off the S-Class-inspired lines we've been expecting. Make sure you check out both cars in the high-res gallery of spy shots, though; whereas the silver car above hides its hood and trunk, those two features on the dark blue car are mostly exposed while the character ...
The third model in the lineup of Mercedes-Benz S-Class hybrids has arrived: the S500 Plug-in Hybrid brings with it a 0-to-62 mile-per-hour time of 5.5 seconds, 30 kilometers (nearly 19 miles) of electric-only operation and a fuel economy rating of three liters per 100 kilometers on the European cycle (78.41 mpg US, though that's not apples-to-apples). ...
Forget spy shots, design sketches and teaser videos, here is the 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class. As part of the rapid expansion of its small car offerings, Mercedes-Benz has pulled the cover off this new compact crossover that we'll be seeing up close and personal at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Sharing a platform with the new A-Class and CLA-Class, the GLA ...
Following yesterday's design sketches, Mercedes-Benz has released another teaser for the 2015 GLA-Class, this time in video form. While the short video doesn't show the GLA in its entirety, we do get several detailed glimpses of it, including our first unobstructed look at the crossover's rump. As expected, the GLA appears to share many of its design ...
Between the GLA Concept and recent spy shots, the cat was pretty much out of the bag as to what the all-new Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class would look like. Still, that isn't stopping Mercedes from keeping the excitement up for its new small crossover until the official unveiling at the Frankfurt Motor Show. As a nice little teaser for this new model, Mercedes ...
Mercedes-Benz will be expanding its crossover range with the addition of the new GLA-Class, a prototype of which we recently spied inside and out. Now, Auto Express reports that the small CUV will go on sale in early 2014 following its public debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show this September. When the GLA arrives, Auto Express expects it to command ...
Between the launch of the 2014 Mercedes S-Class, the debut of the S63 AMG (shown above) and reports about a new "super S-Class," the Mercedes-Benz flagship sedan has been in the news a lot lately. According to Car and Driver, Mercedes plans to introduce three new flavors of the latest S-Class at the Frankfurt, LA and Detroit auto shows. We already heard ...
Mercedes-Benz has dropped the veil on the 2014 S63 AMG 4Matic super sedan, just a day after teasing the beastie in a video clip, and a few months ahead of the car's official coming out party at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. Keen readers will immediately take note of that "4Matic" designation suffixed to the S63's proper name – indeed this ...
When the new Mercedes-Benz A-Class entered production last summer, we were told in the accompanying press release that its platform would support the B-Class and "a further three sporty and emotive vehicles, including a coupé and an SUV." The hidden cameras at KGP have captured the SUV part of that equation, the GLA small crossover, in the Rocky ...
A plug-in hybrid Mercedes-Benz S-Class is reportedly coming to the Frankfurt Motor Show this fall, and to read word around the web, it will establish benchmarks in the segment. According to Australian site CarSales.com, its introduction is "likely to be within six months of the reveal" of the standard sedan, which would place it in early 2014 – ...
Long-wheelbase sedans are a pretty hot commodity in China, and to keep up with the competition, Mercedes-Benz has introduced an extended version of the 2014 E-Class sedan at the Shanghai Motor Show. Audi, BMW, Volvo and even Cadillac offer extended versions of sedans specific to the Chinese market, and now the E-Class L, shown off in E400L guise, will ...
