Mercedes-Benz

Mercedes-Benz is one of the most celebrated luxury carmakers of all time. Associated with premium vehicles since the early days, the German firm is now one of the most successful manufacturers in the luxury market. Established as Mercedes-Benz in 1926, the company goes back to the late 1800s. Founded as Benz & Cie. in 1883, it became Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft in 1890. Although it's mainly know for its cars, SUV, and race cars, Mercedes-Benz also manufactures commercial vans, buses, and trucks. Its current car and SUV lineup includes no fewer than 19 nameplates, some of which go back several decades. Iconic classics from the past include the 770K, 500K, 300SL, 190SL, and successors to the current S-Class, E-Class, and C-Class models. Throughout its history, Mercedes-Benz has operated factories in 30 countries spread over five continents.

What is the Cheapest Mercedes-Benz?

The company’s most affordable vehicle in the United States is the A-Class sedan. Based on the A-Class hatchback, which isn’t offered in the U.S., the small four-door sedan retails from $32,500. The CLA four-door coupé is the next most affordable vehicle at $33,100, while the GLA is the cheapest SUV at $33,950 before options.

What is the Sportiest Mercedes-Benz?

Mercedes-Benz may be famous for luxury cars, but it’s equally famous for sporty vehicles for the road and track. It’s the AMG division that’s usually responsible for these cars. As of 2019, most of the company’s nameplates come in AMG guise, but some are sportier than others. The Mercedes-AMG GT R is arguably the most track oriented vehicle on offer. Essentially a race car for the road, it features a 4.0-liter V-8 engine rated at 577 horsepower and it rides on a chassis that includes many race-bred parts. This car is heavily related to the AMG GT3 and GT4 race cars, although it aerodynamics aren’t as aggressive.

What is the Most Popular Mercedes-Benz?

The compact C-Class is the company most popular vehicle. Globally, the C-Class sold almost 400,000 units in 2018 in both sedan and wagon body styles. This figure also includes the long-wheelbase version that’s offered only in China. In the U.S., the compact GLC crossover is the most popular, with 69,727 units sold in 2018. The GLC is followed by the C-Class with 60,409 units delivered and the E-Class with 46,422 examples sold in 2018 (CLS sales included). The GLE SUV comes close with 46,010 units moved in 2018.

What is the Most Expensive Mercedes-Benz?

The big Mercedes-Benz S-Class is the most expensive car from the brand, with its AMG versions fetching in excess of $250,000. Somewhat ironically, the most expensive Mercedes-Maybach variant of the S-Class narrowly misses the $200K mark. The AMG S65 Cabriolet is the most expensive Merc you can buy at $253,550, while the coupé version of the same car comes in at $241,450. The third most expensive Merc is the AMG S65 version of the S-Class sedan, priced from $232,550.

What is the Fastest Mercedez-Benz?

The Mercedes-AMG GT R is the fastest vehicle you can buy from Mercedes-Benz. Its twin-turbo, 4.0-liter V-8 engine enables it to hit 60 mph from a standing start in just 3.5 seconds. Its top speed is also superior to other Mercedes-Benz models at 198 mph. The AMG GT R is the fastest Merc on the Nurburgring track as well with a 7:10.9-minute lap.

Are Mercedes-Benz Cars Reliable?

Mercedes-Benz cars become famous for their rock-solid reliability in the 1960s and 1970s, but the brand’s dependability decreased in the modern era. In the mid-2000s, Mercedes-Benz rarely scored above average in surveys by Consumer Reports and similar outlets and some of its models were declared unreliable in the mid-2010s. The company’s reliability ratings have gone up a bit in recent years though, with Mercedes-Benz usually placed above rivals like BMW, Audi, Porsche, and Infiniti. However, the brand’s vehicles falls behind cars from Lexus and Tesla. J.D. Power gave Mercedes-Benz a similar rating in 2018.
