Next Mercedes-Benz SLC could go front-wheel-drive

Along with the streamlined new naming conventions that fans are still coming to terms with, there's been a much more sensible and obvious platform-sharing arrangement of late within Mercedes-Benz.

Spy photographers have spotted a new Mercedes-Benz E-Class cabriolet on the streets of Europe, ahead of a market debut that will likely come in the second half of 2017.

2017 Mercedes-Benz E400 4Matic Review: Track test

“Just follow me yah, and we have some fun”, crackled the Mercedes-Benz driving instructor over the radio. I couldn’t take him all too seriously though, as he looked (and sounded) like the German nuclear consortium representative on The Simpsons, and I was easing out on to the circuit in a somewhat regular-looking sedan and not some AMG-branded explosive device...
