2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 Review: 12 Months A Full Year with the Baby Benz

A Full Year with the Baby Benz It’s been a year since we got our 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 long-term test car. It’s also been a year since we posted our six-month 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 review. In that review we mentioned a few… let’s call them… foibles with the then newest Baby Benz mixed in among the many high points.   Here’s a quick recap of our six-month 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250...

Mercedes-AMG GT: A True Sports Car

503 Horsepower Mercedes-AMG GT S Lands in Spring 2015. 456 Horepower AMG GT Follows in 2016 (Specs and 0 to 60 Time) Okay, so the Mercedes-AMG GT isn’t your ordinary Mercedes-Benz. It’s actually a fairly unique offering from Stuttgart for a few reasons. For one thing it doesn’t exactly look like anything else that bears the three-pointed star. Yeah, it has the Mercedes-Benz nose, but that’s pretty much where it...

2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 Long Term Review: 6 Months

Well, it’s been about six months and 10,221 miles since we took delivery of our 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 long-term test car.  We took a vow when we leased the car to keep it for better and for worse, and let this six-month long-term review serve as an account of both the better and the worse.   Our 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 But, first a reminder on what it is we’re testing, exactly.  In October 2013, we leased a 2014...

2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class: A C-Class Worth Having [NAIAS, Video]

I’ve always hated the Mercedes-Benz C-Class… hated it.  I thought it was phoned-in, cheesy, underpowered, ugly and just complete rubbish.  I don’t think I was alone in thinking this.  As a matter of fact, I know I wasn’t alone in this opinion.  And, I think the powers that be at Mercedes-Benz finally understood the general ire people felt toward the C-Class while they were designing the new one, because it is...

2015 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Final Edition [Los Angeles Auto Show]

Nothing says goodbye to a supercar like an over-the-top limited edition.  I guess that’s why Mercedes-Benz will be saying auf wiedersehen to the range-topping SLS AMG with the limited 2015 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Final Edition.   Limited to only 350 units of both coupe and roadster versions, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Final Edition isn’t the most bonkers variant of the SLS AMG — that would be the 622 hp...

2014 Mercedes-Benz GLA Edition 1: A Limited Edition to Welcome the GLA-Class

Just a short time ago, the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class hit dealership floors.  To celebrate the launch of a completely new model, Mercedes created the CLA Edition 1, a fully kitted-out limited edition that came nowhere near the U.S.  Now, to commemorate the launch of the CLA-Class’ slightly steroidal sibling, the GLA-Class, Mercedes is offering the GLA Edition 1, which is also highly unlikely be reach U.S. dealerships. If you are...

2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series: MB’s Top Tire Shredder

At 583 horse and with a 0-60 time of 3.7 seconds, the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is already a powerful, torque-happy machine.  But add the words Black Series to the name and the car becomes a whole different beast.  The 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series is the top dog of the current Mercedes-Benz lineup and the fifth Black Series model to come out of Stuttgart (after the 2006 SLK55 AMG Black Series, the 2008 CLK63 AMG Black Series,...

Mercedes-Benz Concept S-Class Coupe: Half the Doors, Twice the Swagger [Video]

Back in July, I introduced you to the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class.  It’s good.  Very, very good.  But, it seems as though Mercedes and one-upped itself with the new Mercedes-Benz Concept S-Class Coupe, a two-door version of the mega-Merc. Take away a few of the concept-y touches (tiny wing mirrors, bits of the super-organic white interior) from the Concept S-Class Coupe and you probably have a good idea of what the replacement...

Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG Racer and CLA250 Sport: CLA-Class Gets Mean

The AMG models of Mercedes Benz have always been tire-shredding torque monsters.  Well-built, expensive and luxurious, but torque monsters nonetheless.  And, now there’s a new one… the CLA45 AMG.  Like the upcoming GLA-Class, the CLA45 AMG (and the CLA-Class in general, obviously) is based off of the (not to be sold in the States) A-Class platform, making it the smallest AMG one can get Stateside. And, based on these...
