2019 Mercedes-Benz A200 review

The new A-Class establishes itself as the hatchback segment’s most advanced car, though not everything is as sophisticated as it should be.

2019 Mercedes-Benz CLS450 4Matic review

A long-awaited return to straight-six power, coupled with a revival of Mercedes-Benz’s stylistic elegance, ensures the 2019 CLS doesn’t delve into mediocrity as it enters its third generation.

2019 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter review

Mercedes is launching a new version of Australia's top-selling big van range, with luxury car levels of safety and benchmark infotainment and telematics. But competition is hotting up...

2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Sedan review

From the B-pillar forward the new Mercedes-Benz A-Class sedan is identical to the hatch, but this the more complete car with good looks and a ton of tech to tempt new car buyers looking for a compact luxury ride.

2019 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter review: First drive

There’s a reason why the Sprinter is number one in its class. It’s not the cheapest van necessarily, but it’s a technology leader with a vast range of variations and an experienced network behind it. The fact so many discerning fleets choose it is a pretty telling recommendation, though go look at the Crafter and Transit too.

2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class sedan review: First drive

First impressions are the A-Class sedan is a good thing with plenty to tempt a first-time buyer, but with only one variant driven on foreign soil, we’ll need a lot more seat time across the entire model line-up on local roads before coming any finite conclusions. There’s no doubt at all that Benz has put considerable effort into their new entry-level sedan and is expecting it to become a global sales success...

2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class review

The refreshed C-Class is no revolution, but few facelifts are. It should suffice to keep the popular mid-sizer atop the charts though, because it hasn’t ‘fixed’ anything that wasn’t broken, and has only added to what was already an enduringly popular package.

2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class review: Australian launch

Our first look at the all-new Mercedes-Benz A-Class has revealed a surprise package that will really redefine this segment. It makes the BMW 1 Series look ancient in comparison and the Audi A3 like a vanilla-coloured appliance.

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

When Mercedes-Benz chose to enter the dual-cab ute market with the new X-Class, it didn’t go it alone. Working partner Nissan lent a hand – and a variety of components from the Navara – to get the job done. The two aren’t exactly the same. The X-Class is more than just a Navara with a three-pointed star on the nose (despite what you might read in our comments), but it’s not entirely different...

2018 Mercedes-Benz X-Class X250d Power v Ford Ranger Wildtrak comparison

Dual-cab utes have taken over the cities and suburbs of Australia. So much so that both the Toyota HiLux and Ford Ranger sit in the top-five most sold cars each year. That popularity trend continues in other overseas markets, where the HiLux and Ranger also sell in huge numbers. Mercedes-Benz wants a piece of the premium ute mix and has dipped its toe in the dual-cab ute waters with the all-new X-Class...

2017 Audi Q5 2.0 TDI Sport v Mercedes-Benz GLC 220d comparison

Luxury car makers absolutely love producing mid-sized SUVs based on passenger-car platforms, because aspirational upper-middle class family types are buying them in droves. The newest entrant to the class is Audi's second-generation Q5, which pairs clinical design with cutting-edge cabin tech and typically Teutonic execution...

Mercedes-Benz C300 Hybrid, C350e recalled

Mercedes-Benz Australia has issued a recall for the C300 BlueTec Hybrid and C350e plug-in hybrid due to a wiring issue. The German luxury marque reports the diesel-electric and petrol-electric (respectively) variants could have an incorrectly-routed electric line in the engine bay, which could chafe on a reinforcement strut while the vehicle is being operated...

2020 Mercedes-Benz C-Class spied for the first time

The next-generation 2020 Mercedes-Benz C-Class has been snapped in public for the first time, offering a peek at what will replace the recently-updated W205 model. As you'd imagine of a prototype this far from launch, this vehicle is disguised with body add-ons, lots of blank-and-white wrap, and false grilles...

Mercedes-Benz E300de PHEV launches in the UK

Mercedes-Benz UK has launched the E300de plug-in hybrid in both sedan and wagon variants, adding diesel-electric power to its large car line-up. First previewed in March at the Geneva motor show, the E300de pairs a 145kW/400Nm 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel with a 91kW/440Nm electric motor and 13.5kWh battery system...

2001 Mercedes-Benz CLK230 Kompressor Avantgarde review

In mid-2009, I went car shopping for a Toyota Camry to replace my Mitsubishi Magna. After a day of viewing many examples at a variety of dealerships, I had a brain explosion and paid a deposit on this 2001 Mercedes CLK 230 Kompressor...

2015 Mercedes-Benz C250 D review

2016 was a year of seismic changes: Trump, Brexit … And the Cochranes buying their first (truly) European car. Having owned a Mazda, Honda, Lexus and most recently a Ford Mondeo wagon (Okay, sort-of-European!), the wife decided it was time to replace the Mondeo diesel’s low-speed DSG foibles with a little more badge cred (read: European)...

2018 Mercedes-Benz C300 review

This is my second Mercedes and my third cabrio’. When I bought my first, someone once said to me that it will be my one and only cabrio', but having alternated between hatchbacks and sedans, I found myself longing for the convertible experience once more. My previous car was the W205 Mercedes C300 Hybrid...

1982 Mercedes-Benz 230E review

I first wrote a review of my W123 in December 2016, which you can read here. It was my intention to write a follow-up after 12 months of ownership had elapsed, but instead here I am writing a 17-month one...
