Mercedes-Benz Digital Light system will use two million mirrors in its headlights

A new headlight technology from Mercedes-Benz will use more than 1,000,000 micro-mirrors in each of its headlights to make driving safer for road users and pedestrians alike. According to Mercedes-Benz, the high-definition Digital Light system will be so advanced that, in theory, you could watch a movie using just the lighting system as a projector against your garage wall.

Mercedes-AMG outsells Porsche in 2016

There are big name brands that people associate with sports cars - Porsche is probably the most prominent. But despite a record year for the Stuttgart brand, its city sibling Mercedes-AMG outsold it in Australia in 2016. Porsche sales in Australia rose a solid 8.4 per cent, up to 4434 sales despite a dip in Panamera sales due to a model changeover, and the 2016 numbers weren't as good for Boxster for the same reason.

Eli Zero: Renault Twizy-style EV revealed before CES 2017

The Eli Zero has been revealed ahead of its debut at this year's CES in Las Vegas. The startup car maker has unveiled the look of its first electric vehicle, but has yet to provide any hard details about the Zero, such as the dimensions, range or performance. Just by the sheer look of it, the Zero should be around the size of the Renault Twizy, which measures 2.32m long, 1.19m wide, and 1.46m tall.
