2020 Genesis G70 3.3T Sport long-term review: Value for money

Does the Genesis G70 pack enough value for money to steer potentials away from a European?

Bertha Benz takes world's first road trip; changes automotive history

Video: 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB250 v 2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport P250 R-Dynamic SE

The Land Rover Discovery Sport is no stranger to Australians, having gone on sale here in 2015. The Mercedes-Benz GLB, however, is much newer having gone on sale in 2020. Both occupy the medium-SUV class, and both fall into the ‘prestige’ sub-segment of the category. So, which is the better of these two flexible family freighters?

Video: 2020 Mercedes-Benz X350d review

When it comes to automotive success stories, it is fair to say that X didn’t really mark the spot for Mercedes-Benz. The brand’s much hyped and highly anticipated pickup ended production in May this year, less than three years after being launched.

Video: 2021 Mercedes-Benz A250e PHEV review

Plug-in hybrids don’t often get the respect they deserve – despite making sense for a large cross-section of the driving public – but after a few days with the 2021 Mercedes-Benz A250e, it’s hard to work out why PHEVs don’t get a bit more love.

Video: 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS long-termer introduction

The GLS is the car that Mercedes-Benz refer to as the S-Class of SUVs. It's a pretty bold statement and carries a lot of responsibility, so is the big guy up to the task? Well, we've got one, and this GLS 450 is ours for the next few months so we can find out.

REVISIT: Mercedes-Benz X250d Progressive v Nissan Navara ST-X comparison

Brother from another mother. We looked at the 2020 Mercedes-Benz X350d in runout this week, but how about its four-cylinder stablemate, the X250d? Let's wind back the clock to when the Mercedes-Benz X-Class arrived and was compared directly to its development partner, the Nissan Navara...

Gimme old-school dials and switches... PLEASE!

"We were pushing for the elimination of hard keys because it makes it clean and modern. It's a completely different thing to operate. As designers we love simplicity." And thus, Gorden Wagener, chief of design at Daimler, proved his disconnect from the real world. He was, of course, speaking about the much-lauded, next-generation Mercedes-Benz Hyperscreen launched at last week’s Consumer Electronics Show...

2021 Mercedes-Benz EQS: Next-gen MBUX Hyperscreen infotainment revealed

Mercedes-Benz has unveiled its next-generation, ultra-high-tech take on the modern car interior: the MBUX Hyperscreen. Available as an option on the upcoming 2021 Mercedes-Benz EQS electric sedan, the MBUX Hyperscreen sees the car's interior screens combined into one curved panel stretching the entire, 1410-millimetre width between the left and right A-pillars...

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. Almost half of those sales comprised just two models – A-Class and GLC-Class – underscoring the buying public's taste for small cars and medium SUVs...

Every car leaving the Australian market in 2020

It was a big year for automotive in 2020, with the exit of Holden, the cancellation of international motor shows and the Australian Grand Prix due to coronavirus, and the steady decline of new car sales. In a challenging climate, it's perhaps unsurprising that carmakers reduced their ranges, discontinued under-performers and replaced older models with hybrids, electric cars or new creations altogether...

2015 Mercedes-Benz E400 review

In January of 2015 I decided to purchase a 2015 E400 coupe. I had just sold my two-year old 991 C2S, and prior to that I had owned a facelifted 2012 C63, both of which were great cars in their own right. Over the years I have owned five Mercedes-Benz cars and have always bought and sold cars after 30 months, thus I bought this car thinking it would be a short term acquisition...

2011 Mercedes-Benz C180 BE review

I have owned many vehicles from the major car manufacturers over the years, both European and Japanese. I have experienced the good and bad that they have to offer. But a Mercedes? I had never really thought about one seriously. As a young bloke I had always thought that a Merc was a pensioner car, or only for "the toffs" to own...

1986 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL review

The Mercedes R107 was produced from 1971 to 1989 in the same body style but with various engine types. Big Red is a 1986 300SL convertible, which sports the M103 3.0-litre straight 6-cylinder. This engine was used in Australia in many Mercs, such as the 300SE, 300E, 300CE, and 300TE. This engine has proven over time to be very durable, and capable of very high mileage...

1995 Mercedes-Benz E280 review

I suppose I'm not your typical old-school Mercedes-Benz driver. I am still relatively young (late 30's), with a wife and 2 young kids. The car I now drive - a 1994 Mercedes-Benz E280 Saloon in Zircon Silver, I've lusted after ever since high school. I was 14 years old in 1994. SUVs didn't exist. Your parents either drove a Falcon or Commodore, and said Falcodore was either a sedan or wagon...
