Mercedes-Benz says ‘yes' to flying cars

Car makers heading to the skies? It certainly looks like it. As fanciful as it might seem, and as Jetson-esque as it might sound, Mercedes-Benz has effectively endorsed the concept of flying cars - or flying conveyances, more to the point...

2017 Mercedes-Benz Vito 119 Crew Cab review

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz Vito 119 Crew Cab purports to offer the best of both worlds – hard enough for work and soft enough for play. But, is it worth opting for a premium brand over cheaper alternatives?

AMG GT Black Series a sure thing, but no AMG X-Class

AMG boss Tobias Moers told Australian media at the 2017 frankfurt motor show that there is a Black Series version of the already heavy-hitting Mercedes-AMG GT model on the horizon. With Black Series becoming an even more performance-oriented and collectible version of any Mercedes-Benz platform it is added to over the past decade or so, the GT provides a logical basis for that trend to continue...

2017 Mercedes-AMG GT R track review

The most hardcore road-going GT in the AMG range, the R is a snarling, bellowing beast. Test driving it on-track is a proper test of both machine and driver.

Mercedes-Benz EQA concept revealed, 'would make sense' for Australia

The Mercedes-Benz EQA concept, revealed at the 2017 Frankfurt motor show, previews the second all-electric model from the German marque, following on from the recent EQC.

Mercedes-AMG Project One shows its caboose to the competition

Days before its global unveiling, and less than a week since its last appearance, a new view of the Mercedes-AMG Project One hypercar has been handed down from on high. This latest shot offers a suitably grainy, reconnaissance-like glimpse of the car that will enter as AMG's response to the LaFerrari, Mclaren P1, Porsche 918… and the upcoming Aston Martin Valkyrie...

Across the Simpson Desert in a Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen

An endless expanse of red dirt, shrubs and low trees fold away into the distance. Occasionally, you see a small ridge line of brighter, redder dirt, brilliantly red rocks while the odd cow chews some cud as you whistle past on the heavily corrugated road. Welcome to the expansive Simpson Desert, a largely flat landscape of, well, not very much...

2017 BMW 530i vs Mercedes-Benz E300 sedan comparison

While Bill Murray began every Groundhog Day at 6AM back in the early ’90s, the perpetual time warp I’m currently finding myself in starts with ‘5’ and ends with ‘Series sedan from BMW’. Since the all-new seventh-generation 2017 BMW 5 Series range lobbed locally in March, I've sampled both petrol 530i fours and 540i sixes, spent a week with diesel six-cylinder 530d in May, and attended the 530e iPerformance PHEV’s local launch in June...
