When Autosavant first laid eyes on the 2014 Mercedes Benz E-Class, it was at its official debut during the 2013 North American Auto Show in Detroit Michigan, where the newest iteration of the E-Class (in sedan and wagon form) left a good first impression on us with its reworked exterior styling as well as its new interior layout. But with the car now arriving onto dealer lots, does it still have what it takes to compete against the BMW 5 Series and Audi A6 while filling the lofty shoes of its popular predecessor at the same time? To find out, I visited my local Mercedes-Benz dealership in Bloomfield Hills Michigan, where their “Open Haus” event allowed me to spend some quality time with the 2014 E-Class lineup and witness first hand whether the company’s efforts to improve the E have paid off.

Bentley has always had a long history of success both on and off the track. In particular, the brand has won the grueling 24 hr of Le Mans race an impressive six times with four of those wins occurring consecutively between 1927 and 1930. To celebrate this impressive racing accomplishment, Bentley has officially unveiled six different Le Mans packages that will be equipped to the brands flagship Mulsanne sedan as well as the equally exclusive Continental lineup.
Even though the 2013 Ford Fiesta is not as strong in overall sales as Ford first thought it would be when it arrived on our shores a few years ago, the tiny subcompact is succeeding in bringing in new customers for the company which should please the company as it fights for a sizable slice of the subcompact car market.
With the 2013 Worthersee Volkswagen Tuning Group Festival fast approaching, Volkswagen has unveiled several teaser sketches of its “Design Vision GTI” concept, a unique one of a kind GTI (first reported here a few days back) that showcases the pinnacle of styling and performance for the brands iconic hot hatchback as well as what could be in store for future models.
