2018 Mercedes-Benz SL-class | In-Depth Model Review | Car and Driver
A night out in an Armani tux and Gucci driving loafers.
Calling the Mercedes-Benz SL-class a sports car is only telling half the story. This car offers a compelling blend of passenger comfort and driving excitement. It’s more than competent on a twisty road, and both of its available powertrains—a 362-hp V-6 and a 449-hp V-8—provide plenty of forward thrust. Drop the top, select Comfort mode, and switch on the optional massaging seats; it’s a luxury car that just happens to resemble a low-slung sports car. It’s even practical, sporting a much larger trunk than many of its rivals and a folding hardtop that keeps the cabin serene when up. Even though it’s aging, it still looks as good at speed as it does when parked at the front of the valet line, and its dual personality makes it perfect for a glamorous night out.
HIGHS
Strong performance, impressive refinement, expensively subdued good looks.
LOWS
Interior not up to Benz’s best, small infotainment screen, not as flashy as some competitors.
VERDICT
A polished roadster that oozes class and lives up to its storied reputation.

2018 Mercedes-Benz E400 Coupe Test | Review | Car and Driver
Sensibly irrational.
Although they share a basic architecture, the Mercedes-Benz E-class coupe has an entirely different spirit than its E-class sedan counterpart. Going beyond the simple removal of a pair of doors and B-pillars, the E400 coupe’s elegant, airy ambiance makes it the perfect accomplice for both nights on the town and long Sunday drives, these in addition to its core competence as an indulgent transportation device. That the rear compartment is large enough for a pair of full-grown adults to sit comfortably is a welcome bonus.
HIGHS
Understated elegance, usable rear seat, surprising grip.
LOWS
No choice of engines, fixed rear-quarter windows slightly taint the pure profile.

2017 Mercedes-Benz S-class | In-Depth Model Review | Car and Driver
Let us chauffeur you through its excellence.
The Mercedes-Benz S-class is the benchmark full-size luxury sedan. It may be the template, but it is anything but cookie-cutter, with standout elegance, peerless fit and finish, and an unmatched smoothness to its every move. Equipped with the standard V-8 engine, the no-cost plug-in hybrid powertrain, or the available V-12, fully optioned or bare-bones, the S-class reigns over other sedans like the kings and heads of state who frequently ride in them.
HIGHS
Elegant styling inside and out, impeccable fit and finish, smooth and powerful engines.
LOWS
V-12 can’t be combined with all-wheel drive, base price is nearly six digits.
VERDICT
Among full-size luxury sedans, it’s Mercedes-Benz or nothing.

Mercedes handles the competition because it knows how to handle data, too | Ars Technica
Ahead of (another) Mercedes win, Ars gets a look at the team's network stack.
AUSTIN, Texas—History happened Sunday at the Circuit of the Americas. Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton won for the fifth time in six years at Austin, inching him closer to a fourth world championship this year. And on a macro scale, Hamilton’s victory sealed a fourth straight Formula One constructors’ championship for the Silver Arrows team at Mercedes. According to ESPN, that makes Mercedes the first team to win consecutive championships across a major regulation change.
How does a team achieve such sustained dominance—Mercedes has won a staggering 51 of 59 total races between 2014 and 2016—in an era where the sport has witnessed an infusion of more money, more engineering talent, and more of those aforementioned regulations? If you listen to members of the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport tech team tell it, the answer starts in the team’s network stacks.

2018 Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster Full Test | Review | Car and Driver
Brutally quick and up to the challenge of challenging 911s.
When the Mercedes-AMG GT emerged back in 2014 as the lighter, nimbler, and cheaper successor to the SLS AMG, not only were the 456-hp base and 503-hp S variants arguably among the company’s most focused and well-balanced performance cars since the original 300SL, the coupes finally gave Mercedes something it had always lacked: legitimate competition for Porsche’s iconic 911 Carrera.
HIGHS
Lip-smacking looks, alluring and luxurious cabin, uproarious vocals, quickest droptop Mercedes ever.
LOWS
Priced out of our reach, too much chrome for some tastes.

2017 Mercedes-AMG C43 | In-Depth Model Review | Car and Driver
Twin-turbo triple threat.
Filling the gap that exists between the sensible Mercedes-Benz C300 and the raucous Mercedes-AMG C63, the Mercedes-AMG C43 offers mighty performance at a relatively reasonable price. It’s available as a sedan, coupe, or convertible, and the titillating twin-turbo V-6 engine is the star of the C43 show. If only the model’s ride quality were as impressive as its powertrain. As is, the C43’s harsh suspension setup feels as though it channels every road undulation and surface imperfection directly to the seat cushions and up the spines of the driver and passengers. Still, if you can live with the C43’s rough ride, you’ll appreciate typical C-class hallmarks such as a handsome exterior design, a rich and finely pieced-together interior, and a surprisingly playful chassis.
HIGHS
Gorgeous cabin, stunningly quick, choice of three body styles.
LOWS
Rocky ride, adding options quickly inflates the price.
VERDICT
A budget AMG, harsh ride and all.

Mercedes AMG GT R: The New German Road Rocket
Mercedes has just recently expanded its hyper car AMG GT range with a new top-of-the-range GT R.  In this increasingly competitive segment, at which every hyper car marker seems to be producing a jacked-up version of its range topping models, the Mercedes AMG GT R sets its eyes on rivals like the Jaguar F-Type R,...

2018 Mercedes-Benz S450 First Drive | Review | Car and Driver
Finally, a V-6 worthy of the S-class.
Starting a Mercedes-Benz S450 outside the Manhattan Four Seasons could be a letdown, if you’re the type to make it one. Car-enthusiast wisdom says that once you’ve played on the Palisades Parkway in an S65, the base model will forever disappoint. But while the S-class sedan caters to Benz’s most badge-conscious customers, a downlevel numeral on the decklid no longer undermines this big sedan’s reputation.
HIGHS
Strong twin-turbo V-6, sublime driving experience, spacious comfort.
LOWS
Self-driving features need constant attention, sparse(-ish) equipment for $90K base price.

2018 Mercedes-Benz C300 Cabriolet Test | Review | Car and Driver
This softtop is no softie.
More than a century before the invention of the automobile, France introduced the world to the cabriolet: a two-wheeled, horse-drawn carriage intended for short jaunts about town. The compact carriage notably featured a folding roof that could be tucked away in good weather or raised to protect passengers from nature’s elements.
HIGHS
Miniature S-class looks, slick power top, impressive lateral grip.
LOWS
Stiff ride, small back seats, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto don’t come standard.

2019 Mercedes-Benz CLS-class First Ride | Review | Car and Driver
The new E-class gets a swoopy makeover.
When it bowed for the 2005 model year, Mercedes-Benz’s CLS-class launched a segment the world didn’t know it wanted: the four-door coupe. Quad-portal traditionalists worked themselves into a tizzy, pointing out that the CLS was merely a sedan with a fastback roofline; that a coupe had only two doors. But if a company could offer a two-door sedan (something Ford was doing as far back as the 1920s), why couldn’t we have a four-door coupe? Regardless, the style and nomenclature caught on with the European crowd, spawning machines such as the Volkswagen CC and the Audi A7. The original now is about to enter its third generation. And it’s doing so by edging ever closer to the sedan that spawned it, the E-class.

2018 Mercedes-Benz S-class Sedan Priced Starting under $91,000 | News | Car and Driver | Car and Driver Blog
If you’re a luxury-sedan shopper who is unconcerned with cylinder count, we have some good news for you: The Mercedes-Benz S-class just got significantly more affordable. The 2018 S450 starts at $90,895, a $6700 discount over the 2017 S550. But before you call Benz generous, know that the lower model number has repercussions under the hood. Instead of a twin-turbo 4.7-liter V-8, the S450 borrows the also twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 from the compact C43 and bolts it to the much heavier S-class. Perhaps you can adjust to 362 horsepower from 449, but the S450’s 369 lb-ft of torque isn’t going to replicate the S550’s majestic 516 lb-ft. But for those with a light right foot, an S450, or the S450 4Matic (add $3000), may be more than enough.
