Video: 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS450 review - Long-term farewell

Handing back a long term loan car isn't always easy. Case in point, the Mercedes-Benz GLS 450 here is being my faithful companion for the past six months. I think it's pretty fair to say that I've smoked. I've gotten pretty fond of the big guy's despite initial reservations about the sheer size of the Big Merc. I think I'm gonna actually miss it...

Video: Audi A6 v Genesis G80 v Mercedes-Benz E-Class - Drive Car of the Year 2021 Best Large Luxury Car

They once ruled the driveways and roads of Australia’s wealthiest postcodes, a four-wheeled sign you had made it in life. Large sedans wearing badges, predominantly from Germany, sometimes England, oozed prestige, with big powerful engines matched only by large, comfortable interiors...

Video: 2021 Mercedes-Benz Vito review

Here is one way to stand out from the crowd in the medium van segment. We see what the German brand has to offer for couriers and tradies alike.

Video: 2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class review

The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is the benchmark luxury saloon, so what does an all-new generation mean? Quite simply, the benchmark has been raised.

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.

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.

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...
