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.

2021 Mercedes-AMG GLB35 review

Nothing says niche quite like a prestige, seven-seat, medium SUV with a dedicated performance skew. Does the Mercedes-AMG GLB35 rise above pigeonholing?

2021 Mercedes-AMG E53 4Matic+ Coupe review

The E53 Coupe might be seen as a lesser AMG, but that would be a mistake. It's potent, fast and effortless – everything an AMG should be.

2021 Mercedes-AMG GLE63 S 4Matic+ review

The new Mercedes-AMG GLE63 S is a monster performer, as you'd expect from AMG, but also a practical family SUV. Coupe or wagon, choose your poison.

2021 Mercedes-AMG C63 S Coupe Aero Edition 63 review

Anyone who thought a C63 Coupe didn't already look tough enough was probably in the minority. Still, there is now an even sharper limited edition available.

Video: 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLE63 S 4Matic+ review

The saying ‘you can have your cake and eat it too’ has never made any sense to me to be honest, but in the case of the GLE63 it seems to be bang on the money.

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.

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?

Mercedes-Benz adjusts pricing across range, discounts up to $820

Less than a month after increasing prices across its line-up – it's third in since early 2020 – Mercedes-Benz has continued to adjust pricing, but this time with a number of discounts being applied to the cheaper end of its model range. The greatest discount in the Mercedes-Benz stable is a tie between the A 250 hatch, CLA 200 four-door coupe, and CLA 250, with $500 taken off last month's prices...

The 2022 Mercedes-AMG CLS 53 has received its mid-life facelift, with first Australian deliveries slated for the fourth quarter of 2021 (October to December inclusive).

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...
