2018 Mercedes-Benz V250d Avantgarde review

Moving more than two passengers in style and comfort is the subject of much debate in the motoring world. If you need to move more than five, though, the V250d really is tough to topple.

2019 Mercedes-Benz B-Class review

The all-new third-generation Mercedes-Benz B-Class has lost some of the previous gen's frumpiness and gained tech, refinement and plushness.

2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE review

The Mercedes-Benz GLE has come of age in its all-new fourth generation. It’s brimming with tech and grows into a seven-seater, but is it a finer large luxury SUV?

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 GLE review: What's new this gen?

Possessed suspension, ultimate electronic wizardry, super intelligent infotainment... yes, there's a few new things here.

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.

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...

Who's making utes for whom?

Car companies have been sharing development costs for years, so it’s hardly shocking to see them doing the same with pickups/utes. For one, we’ve just seen Ford and Volkswagen announce the co-development of the next-generation Ranger and Amarok, due for market launch in 2022. Isuzu and Mazda are also sharing costs on the next D-Max/BT-50...

CarAdvice podcast 135: Tony Crawford drives a Singer 911!

Welcome to the 2019 season of the CarAdvice podcast! This week you are joined by Mandy Turner and Mike Stevens. In car news, Honda has launched a new entry-level third-row CR-V, the 2020 Land Rover Defender has been previewed, while the 2019 Lamborghini Huracan Evo and Mercedes-Benz CLA have been revealed...

2020 Mercedes-AMG GLE63 Coupe spied

The next-generation Mercedes-AMG GLE63 Coupe has been snapped for the first time in snowy Europe, ahead of an anticipated reveal sometime later this year. Despite the heavy black-and-white camouflage, we can see the GLE Coupe will look very much like its wagon-bodied sibling, with an updated take on Benz's coupe design language at the rear...

When will luxury cars get five-year warranty?

Pressure is mounting on luxury car brands to boost their warranties to five years or more, now that nine of the Top 10 brands offer extended coverage as standard. In particular the decision by car giants Toyota and Volkswagen to increase their warranties from three to five years from January 1, 2019 has made it increasingly difficult for their respective luxury affiliates Lexus and Audi to hold out...

2008 Mercedes-Benz A170 Classic review

George ('Dubya') Bush once quipped: “There's an old saying in Tennessee — I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can't get fooled again.” I pondered such (mangled) wisdom when I bought my second A-Class, although this time a W169 (or is that a ‘Dubya 169’) A170 instead of a W168 A160...

2012 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG review

“You’ll have to grab this next exit, mate”, I say, with what I believe to be plenty of notice. “This one on the left?” says Aaron, still running his fingers over the Alcantara, perusing buttons, gripping the steering wheel and playing with the drive-mode selector. “Yeah, this one on the left...

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)...
