Video: 2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class W223 - First Australian look at the all-new luxury sedan

Something that doesn't happen every day, and in fact, has only happened 7 times in total, is the launch of an all-new Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The S-Class badge officially started in 1972 with the launch of the W116, followed by the W126, W140, W220, W221, W222, and the new car, the W223. Cars will arrive later this year in Australia...

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.

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...

2011 Mercedes-Benz E250 CDI Avantgarde review

NOTE: stock images have been used as none were provided by owner. My son bought this Mercedes-Benz E250 at auction for me - fait accompli. I like the space inside the car, the stunning design and style, and the ride and comfort. There's nothing here to dislike. The finish and paint work (Iridium Grey metallic) is excellent...

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...

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.
