Mercedes-AMG

Mercedes-AMG is the new spin-off brand for all Mercedes-Benz models enhanced by the company's famed tuning arm, AMG. The division was founded as an independent business in the 1960s, but eventually joined the Mercedes-Benz family when parent Daimler took a controlling interest in the tuning house in 1990. Later, in 2005, AMG became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Daimler AG. Now, as Mercedes-AMG, the division is more clearly set apart as the BMW M rival that its fans have long counted it as.

James gets a chance to sample the manic Mercedes-AMG A45 S without speed limits, and with a new set of sticky tyres. Will he ever bring it back?

2021 Mercedes-AMG GLS 63 review: Australian first drive

Has Mercedes-AMG finally found a way to break the laws of physics? James bends time and space, with the seat massage on, in the mighty Mercedes-AMG GLS63.

2021 Mercedes-AMG GLB 35 review: Australian first drive

Hot-hatches don't often have seven seats, and as James discovers with the 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLB 35, there's probably a good reason why...

Video: 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLE53 Coupe review

The current flagship in the GLE range, the 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLE53 Coupe is a redesigned take on an already popular model within the range. Coupe styling aside, Mercedes-Benz’s big, luxury SUV might look similar to the old model, but it promises to be significantly better.

Which is quicker in the real world? We throw former racing driver Ian Dyk the keys to find out in a series a performance tests.

Revisit: Mini Clubman JCW v Mercedes-AMG A35 (video)

The hottest version of Mini's Clubman, the John Cooper Works, takes on Mercedes-AMG's A35 hot hatch... on track! Which is the most fun to drive when (mostly) unleashed? Jamed Ward finds out.

Video review: 2020 Mercedes-AMG A45 S

There are other hatches, there are other AMGs, most of which will suit the majority of your needs better than this one, but if you really must have the hottest of the hot, there is no other option: it's the 2020 Mercedes-AMG A45 S!

Hot 'hatch' review: 2020 Audi RS Q3 Sportback v Mercedes-AMG A45 S comparison

Audi’s high-performance crossover takes on Mercedes-AMG’s hyper-hatch in a battle of racy compacts.

2020 BMW X5 M50i v Mercedes-AMG GLE53 comparison

A family SUV doesn't make a great sports car, and vice-versa. These two bulked-up family freighters buck the trend, with one in particular doing a very convincing job of being both things.

2020 BMW M235i Gran Coupe v Mercedes-AMG A35 sedan comparison review

German four-door luxury performance cars have never been more attainable. But should buyers head for the car wearing an M badge or the letters AMG?

BMW M outsells Mercedes-AMG globally in 2020 – but AMG remains on top in Australia

BMW M has beaten Mercedes-AMG in the international performance-car sales race in 2020, despite a global pandemic – however, the brands' Australian arms tell a contrasting tale.

Top 10 new cars money can’t buy: The list of vehicles with a long queue

New-car sales have recovered faster than expected in the wake of the pandemic – with demand surging in the last two months of 2020 – which has led to severe stock shortages of some models. After almost a decade of record low prices and sharp drive-away deals the balance of power has shifted in favour of dealers who are scrambling for cars to sell...

2021 Mercedes-Benz and AMG new cars

Mercedes-Benz cemented its place as Australia's leading luxury carmaker in 2020, its 26,350 passenger vehicles sales to the end of November placing it well ahead of arch rivals BMW and Audi.

2020 Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 S 4matic+ review

I will begin this review of the C118 CLA45S by saying that I have been lucky to have owned two of the previous model (the C117 in both the first generation and the facelifted 2016 versions), so a lot of comparisons will be made. When the C118 model was announced in the middle of last year, I was not completely convinced about giving the CLA a third try...

2020 Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 S 4matic+ review

I am not a good car reviewer. I'll admit it from the outset. When I got my CLA45S in May I sent a terribly written review to CarAdvice and I think it almost immediately made its way into the trash can. But a bit of time with the car has given me the opportunity to appreciate it far better and hopefully now I can produce a review that is “worthy” of the readership (note: my writing skills have not improved)...

2016 Mercedes-AMG C 63 S review

Trundling through the CBD at 40km/h, with the sound of the exhaust reverberating through the concrete canyons, the C63S coupe is reminiscent of a Panzer tank rumbling into battle. The exhaust note telegraphs the fury that can be unleashed by the 375kW 4.0-litre, twin-turbo V8 that powers this German muscle car...

2016 Mercedes-AMG GLA 45 4MATIC Review

3 years ago we bought this car. I hated it. I hated it on the test drive and I hated it on the drive home. After 39000kms, I will now fight anyone who tries to take it off me. I love it. It is utterly brilliant, entertaining, noisy and monstrously fast. Plus the baby fits in it. The issue at first was me being familiar with big capacity V8s and having no experience with little turbo engines...
