2021 Mercedes-AMG E 53 4MATIC+
The 2021 Mercedes-AMG E53 is a facelifted version of the performance sedan that sits between the regular E-Class and the AMG E63. The sedan that replaced the old AMG E43 arrived less than a couple of years ago, but Mercedes-Benz decided to upgrade it alongside the standard E-Class. The facelift adds restyled front and rear sections and some new tech, but the drivetrain remains unchanged.
2020 Mercedes-AMG G-Class Star Trooper Pickup by Mansory
Mansory is a premium aftermarket company that has designed some pretty good vehicles in the past. The cars that it has unveiled lately, however, seem to tell a different story. Check out the audacious Lamborghini Urus Venatus or the Rolls-Royce Cullinan Coastline to know what I mean. But, now, the company is back to working on its favorite vehicle, the Mercedes-Benz G-Class.
In 2019, Mansory worked on the Mercedes-AMG G63 to create a Star Trooper edition of the legendary SUV. The company has now created a pickup version of the same Star Trooper SUV with a few more touches. Did Brabus inspire them to do this? The Star Trooper has been designed by Mansory in collaboration with Phillip Plein.
The 2021 Mercedes E-Class Has an "Electrifying" New Design
When Mercedes-Benz introduced the W213-generation E-Class back in 2016, it created a revolution in the midsize executive segment. It brought many safety innovations to the market and it took the S-Class’ semi-autonomous driving capability to a new level with nine all-new assistance systems.
Come 2020 and the E-Class went through a mid-cycle facelift that makes it even better. Now sporting design cues from the hot CLS, the E-Class also comes with Merc’s latest MBUX infotainment system and new features. Power comes from updated diesel and gasoline engines, hybrid options, and a brand-new 3.0-liter inline-six.
2020 Merecedes G-Class 800 Adventure XLP by Brabus
Another auto show and Brabus comes up with another vehicle. This time, the aftermarket company has come up with the so-called Brabus 800 Adventure XLP that is based on the Mercedes-AMG G63. That’s right, the SUV with a pickup bed is debuting at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show.
The prestigious aftermarket company is known for its ability to make your pocket a lot lighter once you’ve bought its products and this time also it’s no different. The Brabus 800 Adventure XLP features exquisite exterior and interior cues and a powerful mill under the hood. Despite the changes, does it warrant a sticker price of over half-a-million dollars?
2019 Mercedes-Benz EQ Silver Arrow 01
After years of speculation, Mercedes-Benz has finally revealed its Formula E contender. Well, sort of. The German manufacturer presented in the eve of the 89th Geneva Auto Show the EQ Silver Arrow 01 wearing a ’concept livery’ that is, as you can see, lacking an important element: silver. Rest assured, though, the final livery that "will be presented at a later stage ahead of the [2019/20] season opener" will undoubtedly feature some silver.
Here’s an odd one: Mercedes taking the wraps off its first electric silver arrow racer that ominously lacks any trace of silver. That’s like Ferrari debuting next year with a blue car in Formula 1. What’s more important, though, than an interim livery is what Mercedes is conveying by officializing this move. The automaker from Stuttgart left, to the dismay of many, the DTM at the end of the 2018 season after a 30-year-long involvement in the series to focus on showcasing its electric prowess on track in the world’s top arena: the Formula E. The works Merc team will debut next season, which will be the sixth in the history of the championship, and the program will be run by HWA who ran the DTM cars in the last few years and, intriguingly, will operate the new Aston Martin DTM cars this season as well from behind the scenes.
Update 04/03/109: Mercedes has taken the Mercedes-Benz EQ Silver Arrow Formula E racer to the track to perform some in-depth testing. Check out everything we know in our special testing section below!
2019 Mercedes-Benz Concept EQV
The Mercedes-Benz Concept EQV is a vehicle that previews the company’s upcoming all-electric passenger van. Based on the existing V-Class production model, the EQV is part of Mercedes’ recently introduced EQ brand, which currently includes the EQC crossover. The production model is set to break cover at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
Part of the EQ family of all-electric crossovers, the EQV follows in the footsteps of the Concept EQ, Concept EQA, and EQC. The second EQ show car to become a production model, the EQV doesn’t have a unique design language like the EQC. The concept is heavily based on the V-Class van and adds only a handful of new styling features, mostly inspired by the EQC, to the front fascia. But the good news is that it will become the first premium van with a seating capacity of up to eight people that features an all-electric drivetrain.
2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class
Mercedes-Benz has pulled the covers off of the updated GLC-Class ahead of its world debut at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. The premium compact crossover is on the receiving end of improved aesthetics and a fruit basket’s worth of new tech features. Mercedes has always touted the GLC-Class as a fresh gateway model to some of its more premium SUVs, and, for the most part, the updated model looks the part of one. Following its debut in Geneva, the GLC-Class will go on sale in Europe in the middle of the year. As for us in the U.S., you’ll have to wait a little longer as the crossover isn’t scheduled to hit our shores until the latter part of 2019.
Update 03/14/2019: We’ve updated this review with fresh images of the 2019 Mercedes GLC that we took during the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. Check them out in the gallery at the bottom of this page!
2019 Mercedes-AMG GT R Roadster
The Mercedes-AMG GT R Roadster is the range-topping version of the company’s lineup of drop-top sports cars. Based on the AMG GT R coupe, it provides the thrills of a high-performance sports car with the benefits of infinite headroom. First launched for the 2017 model year, the GT Roadster made its debut in base trim, with a GT C model added soon after that. More recently, Mercedes-Benz also launched a GT S Roadster, leaving the GT R the only trim that still needed to go topless. After years of rumors, the AMG GT R Roadster finally made its global debut at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.
2020 Mercedes-AMG GLE53
Mercedes unveiled the 2020 Mercedes-AMG GLE53 at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show as the most potent six-cylinder GLE that you can buy. It has over 400 horsepower, a performance- and efficiency-enhancing mild hybrid system, and sporty AMG touches to go with the extra shot of electrified performance. As with all AMG 53-badged models, the GLE53 is powered by Mercedes’ new straight-six engine with two turbochargers. It’s essentially the same unit found in the AMG 43-branded models, the difference being the extra oomph provided by the mild hybrid. And, since it’s the fastest and most powerful model in the range that doesn’t have a V-8, it is very well equipped and features unique AMG design touches.
Mercedes has so far not announced or revealed an AMG 63 version of the all-new GLE, so until then; this GLE53 4Matic+ is the best performing model in the lineup. In fact, Mercedes hasn’t even mentioned a hot, twin-turbo, V8-powered GLE yet, so it might not even make one - Mercedes has also done this for the CLS, a car that can no longer be had with a V-8.
The Revised 2019 Mercedes-Benz V-Class is the Rolls-Royce of Passenger Vans
Because of their mundane looks and low-performance specs, vans are usually overlooked at auto shows. But the Mercedes-Benz V-Class that just debuted in Geneva shouldn’t be one of them. Although it’s not a brand-new vehicle, the third-gen V-Class boasts a few impressive features.
Mercedes-AMG GT-R Roadster Has the Makings of a Future Collectible
Almost three years since Mercedes-AMG unveiled the GT R, its droptop sibling has finally joined the party. The Mercedes-AMG GT R Roadster is here, and, from the looks of it, all the waiting we’ve had to endure has paid off in kind. The GT R Roadster looks the part of a raunchy roadster with the added aesthetic benefit of a rear wing supplementing its sporty looks. It’s fierce, aggressive, and potent, all rolled into one. The latter is just as important in the AMG GT R experience, especially when you consider that this model weighs 110 pounds more than its coupé counterpart by virtue of its triple-layer fabric soft top and the corresponding aluminum and magnesium structure that supports it. Pricing details have yet to be revealed, but we do know that there won’t be a lot of these models on the road when it hits the market. Mercedes-AMG only plans to build 750 units, making the AMG GT R Roadster a bit of a special edition model in its own right.
2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake mixes style and space in Geneva
Mercedes calls its new CLA Shooting Brake a “sports car with load space,” and while that may purely be marketing babble it does put you in the mindset to understand what they were trying to do with it. Now in its second generation, the CLA wagon builds on the strengths of its not very popular predecessor in order to gain more market traction - whether or not this new one will be more successful than the car it replaces remains to be seen.
Mercedes Concept EQV Previews the World’s First Premium Electric Van
Mercedes-Benz showed up at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show with a new vehicle that will expand it’s EQ-badge all-electric offering. Following the introduction of the EQC crossover, Mercedes now wants to expand into the van market with the EQV. It’s just a concept for now, but it previews an all-electric version of the V-Class passenger van.
