Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, a van for the ages

There’s a near-100 per cent chance you’ve been impacted somehow in your life by a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. From postal deliveries, to internet goodies arriving by courier, or – unfortunately – riding in the back of an ambulance, the ubiquitous van continues to serve our needs. And this year, it turns 25...

Video: 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLA Review

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLA has big shoes to fill. Despite being an ageing player in a tough segment, the old model was the segment leader in 2018 and remained in the top three in 2019. It’s fair to say, then, that the Australian market liked the old model. According to Mercedes-Benz, the new GLA is bigger, bolder, more SUV-like, and (of course) better...

Video: 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB review

Mercedes Benz is continuing its alphabetical SUV onslaught with another new model joining the local ranks. We’ve seen GLA and GLC – so now let's welcome the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB250 4Matic. Three models are on offer from launch, GLB 200, our car the 250 4 Matic, and the sportier GLB35 AMG. The GLB name would have you think this slots neatly between GLA and GLC – but it’s not that simple...

Video review: 2020 Mercedes-Benz EQC400

Same same, but different. The all-new Mercedes-Benz EQC has plenty of GLC déjà vu, and that might be what makes it work so well.  ...

REVISIT: 2017 Mercedes-AMG C63s v 1996 Mercedes-Benz C36 AMG

There's never a bad time to taste some old-school performance, but is anything from the 1990s old enough to be retro cool, yet? That's the question we explore here, looking back at a 1996 Mercedes-Benz C36 AMG - right alongside today's hero, the 2017 Mercedes-AMG C63 S.

Dieselgate: Fallout from emissions saga continues

Eight more Volkswagen employees have been charged by German prosecutors for their alleged roles in the 'Dieselgate' saga. German authorities have continued their scrutiny of car manufacturers ever since Volkswagen was found to have used software to cheat diesel emissions laws back in 2015...

Every car leaving the Australian market in 2020 – UPDATE

It's been 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 are reducing their ranges, discontinuing under-performers and replacing older models with hybrids, electric cars or new creations altogether...

Lewis Hamilton no longer driving exotic collection, cites environmental concern

Lewis Hamilton owns some of the world's fastest production cars, however he claims he no longer drives them for environmental reasons. The six-time Formula One world champion, who sold his private jet and became a vegan last year, told reporters on Thursday that he was doing his best to reduce his personal carbon footprint: "I don’t drive any of the cars that I own any more...

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...

2013 Mercedes-Benz B200 CDI Be review

As an admitted geek who cares more about gigahertz than horsepower, I've wanted a car with adaptive cruise control for a long time, well before I could afford one. ACC with stop and go down to 0km/h is a great technology with an active radar, allowing for easy driving on long commutes, and increased safety when glancing at screens in stop-start traffic - as most drivers tend to do these days...
