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.
Mercedes-Benz has officially pulled the curtain off of its reworked 2014 Sprinter Van. The versatile and popular Sprinter will not only debut new exterior styling with this major refresh, but also introduce new safety and convenience technology that aims to build upon the Sprinter’s popularity and world class versatility to appeal to a new generation of commercial buyers.
The refreshed 2014 BMW M5 is expected to arrive on dealer lots later this year, but if an intriguing report from the folks at BMW Blog is 100% accurate, the company will be offering a special package to spice up the M5′s already potent performance figures. That should please buyers that want more fun and performance from their sport sedan purchase, and who feel that 560 horsepower is not quite enough for their performance driving needs.
With the 2013 Shanghai Motor Show only a few days away, Mercedes Benz has pulled the shroud of secrecy off of its GLA concept CUV which is a thinly veiled preview of the production GLA that will take on bitter rivals such as the BMW X1 SAV and The Audi Q3.
As most of the world now knows, the 115 cardinals of the Roman Catholic Church elected a new pope yesterday, who took the name of Francis I in tribute to St. Francis of Assisi. Pope Francis is the former Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Buenos Aires, Argentina. You know that we’d find a car connection to this news item, though. Francis I gets the keys to the 2012 Mercedes-Benz ML-based Popemobile.
In the latest twist in the fierce duel between BMW and Audi for first place in the heated global luxury car sales race, BMW has overtaken its longtime rival to regain first place after posting stronger than expected February sales numbers.
Mercedes Benz has unveiled its latest and currently smallest entry into the AMG fold, the 2014 A45 AMG which looks to take a slice of the premium hot hatchback market from BMW as well as Audi’s reworked S3 model while revamping the overall image of the AMG division at the same time.
Mercedes Benz has once again reshaped the foundations of its C63 AMG lineup with the official unveiling of the 2014 C63 AMG 507 Edition which replaces the old Development Package variant, and brings more muscle and new technology to the company’s M3 fighter.
Following months of speculation and numerous teases released online, Mercedes Benz has finally unveiled the 2014 Mercedes Benz E-Class, which brings new style and technology to the company’s iconic midsized offering.
On 14 May 2003, Mercedes announced its new 7G-TRONIC gearbox, a world’s first for an automatic gearbox with seven gears. In its day, it was something revolutionary when its competitors were either on 5-speed or 6-speed automatic gearboxes. Seven gears, Mercedes said, would vastly improve fuel consumption and acceleration.
