2020 Mercedes-Benz SL Grand Edition
The Mercedes-Benz SL Grand Edition is a special-edition version of the company’s familiar and fairly old SL roadster. Based on the sixth-generation SL, upgraded most recently for the 2017 model year, the Grand Edition is probably the last hurrah for the dated roadster, which should be replaced by 2021. Described as an "especially exclusive" Mercedes-Benz, the Grand Edition is indeed a more bespoke version of the SL, but upgrades are limited to special color and trim on the outside and a new leather upholstery inside the cabin. The Grand Edition also rides on a sportier suspension, but it features the same engines as the standard model. Let’s find out more about it in the review below.
2020 Mercedes SLC Final Edition
Just as Mercedes is adept at rolling out First Edition models, it can do the same with Final Edition models. It just so happens that the latter is more fitting for the times, particularly with the SLC-Class, Merc’s largely forgotten retractable hardtop convertible. In case you didn’t know, Mercedes is closing the book on the SLC’s three-generation life, and to commemorate the occasion, the Germans are rolling out the 2020 Mercedes SLC Final Edition. Mercedes is offering the special edition SLC on the SLC300 and AMG SLC43 trims of the roadster. There’s no specific number on how many models Mercedes plans to build, only that the special edition will be available in the U.S. in 2020.
Mercedes-AMG Wants to Make You The Perfect Set of Gloves for your ONE Hypercar
There are cars in this business that are exclusive, and there are cars in this business that are exclusive. The Mercedes-AMG ONE belongs in the latter group. It’s so exclusive that Mercedes-AMG only plans to build 275 units of the Formula One technology-derived hypercar. It’s so exclusive that each of the 275 units costs almost $3 million. It’s so exclusive that, apparently, Mercedes-AMG sent all 275 prospective owners a box with a template inside it. The customers are required to imprint their hands on the template so AMG can make them the perfect pair of driving gloves. And if you’re wondering how much these customers had to pay to reserve one slot for the ONE, the answer is around $565,000 based on current exchange rates. That’s only the deposit, folks. The freakin’ deposit.
2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is the German automaker’s tip of the spear when it comes to luxury and opulence, offering the very latest in technology, styling, and interior features. With a history that dates back to the early ‘70s, the latest sixth generation for the flagship sedan model (also known as the W222) was introduced back in 2013, which means it’s time for a ground-up redesign. With that in mind, we pulled out the TopSpeed crystal ball, drew up the above-pictured rendering, and wrote up a speculative review on what exactly the next S-Class could be bringing to the table.
Update 02/14/2019: We’ve received new spy shots of the 2020 Mercedes S-Class and, while it hasn’t dropped any camo, it has evolved to include new, production-ready LED headlights. Check them out in our spy shots section below!
2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE 350
The 2020 GLE is about to hit the US showrooms in late spring 2019, and let me tell to all SUV buyers out there, wait for it! This new generation is absolutely ground breaking when it comes to technology. No wonder Mercedes-Benz skipped the 2019 year model and jump straight into 2020. The new infotainment system called MBUX is stunning to look at and I wondered how I lived before without the self driving capabilities offered in these kind of vehicles. Follow me on a photo reportage of the GLE features.
The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE 350’s Infotainment System Has Countless Options and the Digital Instrument Cluster is Just as Good
We recently had a go with the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE 350, and suffice to say, the infotainment system is dense. There are menus upon menus to scroll through, with options offered for customization of just about every vehicle parameter imaginable - and a few we’d never dream of. Which begs the question - at what point is it all just too much?
2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA
The second-generation Mercedes-Benz CLA was unveiled at 2019 Consumer Electronics Show.The revised four-door coupe replaces the highly successful first-generation CLA, introduced all the way back in 2013. Just like its predecessor, the 2020 CLA competes in a very tight niche that only includes the Audi A3 Sedan. However, the 2020 CLA may have what it takes to compete against the slightly larger 2019 BMW 3 Series. Based on the same platform that underpins the latest A-Class hatchback and sedan models, the CLA boasts a notable design inside and out. It combines features seen on the A-Class and CLS on the outside, while the interior comes from the smaller of the two. Like most recently unveiled Mercs, the CLA features all the cool technology found in the bigger E-Class and S-Class models, including the semi-autonomous driving system. This places the CLA at the top of its class tech-wise. Let’s find out more about that in the review below.
Mercedes will inject some practicality into its all-new second-gen CLA with the load-lugging CLA shooting brake model. It’s not difficult to see that, with its tapered, swooping shape, it won’t be the most cavernous wagon on the market, but it will certainly offer more space inside than the sedan. It may also appeal to wagon and SUV fans that would otherwise have completely ignored the model.
However, this is not merely a rehash of the initial CLA estate’s formula, since this new one has quite a different shape to it. The front it inherited from the new CLA sedan, but the rear end looks quite different compared to that of the previous CLA wagon - it’s even sleeker and has a more steeply raked fastback-like rear screen.
Realistically few will buy the CLA wagon for its practicality, and most will just want one because it’s a cool, stylish wagon that drives well. Plus it carries the ultra-desirable Mercedes badge. It’s a head-turner too, as with any CLA (even the older one), it draws quite a lot of looks since it’s quite an unusual shape and quite nice to look at too.
Details of the 2020 Mercedes-AMG Project One Have Been Revealed and It’ll Even Beat the 2018 Bugatti Chiron
The Mercedes-AMG Project One has been making headlines for more than a year now. The German company slowly released bits of information about the upcoming supercar in 2018, but come 2019, and we finally know a bit more about its performance. To put it simply, it’s outstanding!
Mercedes was caught testing restyled E-Class prototypes that look like they’re hiding new front and rear fascias. It also appears that most of the work will be done on the front end, which is covered by the heaviest camouflage, although there are other details hidden as well.
The current E-Class, the fifth generation of the nameplate, was launched in 2016 and it is due for a refresh next year. Most changes will be done to the styling, to better reflect Mercedes’ new design language that was originally showcased on the new A-Class and CLS. The updated E-Class is expected to experience an extra infusion of tech as well.
No changes will likely be made to the engine range since the Mercedes started selling the E-Class with its new generation of four-cylinder and straight-six diesel engines, both of which make up the bulk of sales in major markets such as Europe.
Update 01/22/2019: The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is due for a mild facelift, and it should be coming in 2020. It’s only been about a month since we last laid eyes on the pre-production prototype, but we’re getting another look at it. There aren’t any real changes in terms of what we can see on the outside, however, we do get a decent look at the interior, and there are some minor things that we can spot. Check out our spy shots section below for all the details.
The 2020 Mercedes CLA Will Become More Practical in the Future as it Morphs into a New Shape
Mercedes-Benz is already parading camouflaged prototypes of its upcoming CLA wagon, the second generation of the load-lugging four-door coupe that is based on the A-Class. This time the model is all the more unique since there is no bigger CLS shooting brake anymore, so buyers looking for this type of sporty looking wagon within the Mercedes range will have to settle for the new CLA.
Pricing for the 2019 Mercedes A-Class is In and The CLA-Class is No Longer the Cheapest Merc on U.S. Roads
Mercedes-Benz revealed the entry-level price for the new A-Class Sedan. You will be able to get it for $32,500. Go for the 4Matic and be prepared to churn out two grand more at $34,500. This is considerably more compared to the 2013 Mercedes-Benz CLA - the entry-level Mercedes-Benz in the U.S. at the time. That one managed to slip just under the $30,000 mark and was the only Mercedes-Benz to achieve so.
Long gone are those days. While the A-Class Sedan isn’t as special as the CLA, the new car definitely has some merit in the world. And, while $32,500 does not sound that bad for a new Mercedes, this price does not include the destination charge (so, add a grand on top of it) and don’t even imagine having access to all the amazing Mercedes-Benz tech found in higher-end models.
2019 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque vs 2019 Mercedes GLA-Class
Land Rover first introduced the Range Rover Evoque in 2011. A few years later, Mercedes-Benz revealed the GLA-Class in 2013. Both offer subcompact crossover practicality wrapped in a luxurious, high-end package. Both seat five passengers, and both come with a long list of options and features to help them stand out in a crowd. But the question remains - which is best? To find out, we dove headfirst into the spec sheets and put together the following comparison article.

7 Impressive Facts About the 2020 Mercedes CLA
After a rather cheesy debut of the new 2020 Mercedes CLA at the CES in Las Vegas that included a cringy discussion between a talking EQ C and a talking CLA, we finally got an opportunity to see the complete car. It is a big deal for Mercedes-Benz who managed to sell 750,000 units of the CLA since its introduction in 2013. With its debut at the 2019 CES, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA displayed the latest electric technology and a very convincing voice interface.

Here’s Your First Look at the 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA Before You’re Supposed to See It
Mercedes-Benz plans to reveal the new 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA today at the CES in Las Vegas. However, I got my hands on a few fantastic photos before Mercedes-Benz officially revealed them, and I can tell you right away - the 2020 CLA looks the business. While all the 2020 Mercedes-Benz specs are still hidden somewhere in the Daimler hard drive intestines, I did find out that the new car is longer, wider, and lower.
