2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE review

The new Mercedes-Benz GLE is clearly a step up from its predecessor. We have slotted a direct comparison test against the BMW X5 into our calendar, which we're counting down to... Granted, the bigger optional wheels hurt ride quality, the GLE400d’s six-pot engine is a big step up in cost over the fine 300d, and features such as ventilated seats, a wireless phone charger, and a tyre pressure monitor should really come standard on a $100k-plus vehicle...

2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Sedan review

If you thought the CLA was the only small-ish Mercedes-Benz sedan on offer, think again: now there's this, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Sedan. It launches in Australia this week, but should buyers consider it over the slightly cheaper A-Class hatch and the slightly pricier CLA? Joshua Dowling takes it for a pin.

2019 Mercedes Benz GLC & Mercedes-AMG GLC63 S review

With models like the Audi Q5, BMW X3/X4 and Volvo XC60 all vying for attention in the premium mid-sized SUV segment, Mercedes-Benz has given its GLC an all-important update How does it stack up? Mike Costello finds out.

REVIEW: 2019 Mercedes-Benz EQC 400

Is this Mercedes-Benz EQC the new benchmark in luxury electric vehicles? We look forward to getting it through our garage for a proper comprehensive test, but, either way... it's a positive sign of things to come and shows Mercedes-Benz is heading in the right direction for an assault on the EV segment.

2019 Mercedes Benz Marco Polo Activity: The camping trip

If you're into camping but you’re not a fan of canvas or tents, and caravans are just a little too much, then a camper van would be your best option. And no, you don’t need to hire a 1992 Mitsubishi Express from the Byron Bay hinterland with lewd innuendo scrawled down the side. You could opt for something like the Mercedes-Benz Marco Polo...

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.
