Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen not facing the scrapheap despite ever-tightening regulations

How much longer can the Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen exist in a world that is facing ever-tightening regulations for safety and emissions? Forever, perhaps… CarAdvice spoke with Mercedes-Benz’s vice-president of product for SUVs and sports cars, Wolf-Dieter Kurz, at the recent launch of the new GLE SUV and GLE Coupe, and he suggested the big hardcore off-roader will be sold until there’s no-one left who is willing to buy it...

Instead, we will get the sportier European-focused equivalent to be launched inside two years. The Hyundai Creta – stylistically a twin to the Chinese-market ix25, despite a different name and engine options – was announced at the start of June and billed as an “influential global model”...

Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe Review

Is it a copycat? That could be the biggest accusation that could be levelled at the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe, which is suspiciously similar in its intent to the BMW X6. Part SUV, part four-door ‘coupe’, the new Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe could be seen as a catch-up model...

Mercedes-Benz on convertible SUVs: we will find a market

The idea of a convertible SUV may seem silly, but given the growth of the SUV segment globally it's one that’s gathering momentum – including at Mercedes-Benz. The German luxury brand has been a player in the world of drop-top SUVs for years. Its iconic G-Wagen model was offered as a rag-top Cabriolet variant for military use and for public purchase for a staggering 34 years before being axed in 2013...

Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe almost certain for Australia

The new-generation Mercedes-Benz GLC seems to be the gift that keeps on giving - particularly if you want a broad range of mid-sized luxury SUVs. Along with details on the new GLC range, which includes a number of petrol and diesel versions and even a plug-in hybrid model, we've learnt of plans for two go-fast models - the Mercedes-Benz GLC 450 AMG Sport and Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 - and now Australia looks very likely to see the addition of the all-new GLC Coupe, too...

Mercedes-Benz GLC revealed

The all-new Mercedes-Benz GLC mid-sized SUV made its long-awaited world premiere tonight in Germany, meaning the Stuttgart-based marque finally has a proper global rival for the BMW X3 and Audi Q5. A replacement for the GLK (a left-hand-drive car that never came here, much to Mercedes-Benz Australia’s chagrin), the GLC in many ways takes elements from the hugely successful C-Class and applies them to a crossover body-style...

Mercedes-Benz R-Class could be revived

The Mercedes-Benz R-Class could be revived to take advantage of the world’s current taste for SUV-style vehicles. The seven-seat R-Class went on sale in its original form in 2006, before an update in 2010 saw some big styling changes. The car was discontinued from most international markets in 2013 due to slow sales, though it is still being built and sold in China for that market only...

Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe could have beaten BMW X6 to market

The car that upset the SUV segment – the BMW X6 – could have been beaten to market by a Mercedes-Benz coupe-style SUV way back before the Bavarian brand's controversial crossover vehicle launched in 2008. That admission came at the launch of the first ever Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe – which could have been the ML Coupe had it been built way back when – in Austria overnight...
