2020 Mercedes-AMG GLC63 S revealed: Australian launch due in October

Alex Misoyannis • Mercedes-AMG has facelifted its V8-powered GLC63 midsize performance SUV and SUV coupe, ahead of its debut at the New York motor show. Powering the updated crossovers is the same 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine as the outgoing car, which produces an unchanged 350kW of power and 650Nm of torque in GLC63 guise, or 375kW and 700Nm in the top-spec GLC63 S model...

Inside Mercedes-AMG Formula 1 HQ: What it takes to win

As Formula 1 marked its 1000th race at the Chinese Grand Prix last weekend, it has long ago cemented its place at the very top of the motorsport food chain. There is not one serious racing driver that doesn’t dream of securing one of just 20 competitive seats inside an F1 car...

Mercedes-Benz Concept GLB revealed

Mercedes-Benz has revealed the Concept GLB ahead of its public debut at the Shanghai motor show later this week, giving us a clear indication of what to expect from the upcoming production model. While dubbed a 'concept', the Concept GLB looks achingly close to production specification, though the show car has a few off-road bits that may not be fully indicative of the final production...

Compared to the GT R and GT R Pro, the Black Series gets a revised front bumper design incorporating a more aggressive splitter, along with large flics that extend from the grille through to the front wheel arch...

2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class spied inside and out

The next-generation Mercedes-Benz S-Class has been spotted again, this time with less camouflage and false body panels than we've seen previously. Compared to earlier prototypes, we can now see the S-Class is wearing more production-ready components like the tail-lights and door handles. It appears the tail-lights will be slimmer than the current units, as will the headlights up front...

2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS spied

The next-generation Mercedes-Benz GLS has been spied again, but this latest prototype has lost a lot of camouflage compared to its predecessors. There's still a substantial amount of disguise at both ends, but we can now clearly see the shape of the headlights, grille and front fascia. At rear, the GLS looks set to feature a thin strip of tail-lights stretching into the tailgate...

2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class recalled

Mercedes-Benz Australia has issued a recall for the 2016 model-year E-Class, over concerns the airbag could be damaged. The German marque reports the air conditioner housing may have "collided with the airbag control unit during assembly", which could have damaged the latter. If the condition occurs, "this may lead to an impairment of the function of the control unit and an inadvertent activation of the airbags"...

2020 Mercedes-Benz EQ B spied

Mercedes-Benz's practical plug-in, the 2020 EQ B, has been spied testing alongside the EQ C on snowy roads. Although we've seen what look like plug-in hybrid B-Class models in past, this is the first time our spy photographers have managed to snap a pure-electric model. How do we know? The big sticker saying 'electric' on the windscreen is only applied to electric Mercedes prototypes, for one...


REVIEW: 2020 Mercedes-AMG GT R, GT C, GT S first drive

There's so much to like, here. If I were buying an AMG GT, I would find it hard to go past the GT R at first. And if I intended to track the car frequently, I would put up with the downfalls, but a more rational version of me would definitely pick the GT C and live happily ever after. Maybe.

Mercedes-AMG G63 drags Audi RS3, Porsche Cayman GTS

Much has been made of the fact Mercedes-Benz slots a twin-turbo AMG V8 into its G-Class. Sure, the G63 looks like an old-fashioned off-roader, but it's fast enough to make sports cars nervous in a straight line. It might weigh 2500kg, but 430kW and 850Nm are serious outputs...

2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class recalled

Mercedes-Benz Australia has recalled the 2019 A-Class, over concerns about the high-beam activation lever. According to the company, the high-beam lights can't be deactivated using the column stalk when the headlights are in auto mode. Instead, the driver has to put the car into 'manual driving light' mode, at which point they'll be able to dip the high-beams...

EU charges BMW, Daimler, Volkswagen for colluding on emissions cleaning technology

The so-called "circle of five", which included engineers from Audi and Porsche, are said to have "coordinated their AdBlue dosing strategies, AdBlue tank size and refill ranges...
