A third generation Mercedes-Benz C-Class was introduced in 2008, which coincidentally was also its 25 th year in production. Longer and wider than its predecessor, it has a longer wheelbase as well. What didn't change are the classic driving qualities of a Mercedes sedan, which starts with a drivetrain that sends power to the rear wheels.
The overall message conveyed by the selection of vehicles in the Museo Automovilístico de Málaga is that cars can be expressions of great design. Believe me, this museum is packed with such cars, examples of which range from the beautiful to the bizarre. They all make an impression.
It's “form follows function,” as one engineer put it, payi
Unique styling, an upscale cabin, a firm, quality feel, and pleasing performance and efficiency.
The latest-generation Mercedes-Benz C-Class hit the market in 2014 for model year 2015, with sedan and coupe variants on offer. For this generation, the C-Class ditched the angular and chis
Mercedes-Benz invited us to Seattle, Washington, to drive the all-new C 300 and C 400 mid-size luxury sedan. That’s right, mid-size; with the new CLA serving as Mercedes’ entry-level compact sedan (and the B-Class and upcoming GLA crossover as hatchback options at similar prices and content), the C-Class has grown to the point that it can l
After four years of the current generation, the Mercedes C-Class sedan and wagon are getting some updates. That includes some styling changes inside and out, with a new display concept taken from the S-Class and upgraded driver assistance features.
The new look starts with new front bumpers wearing a new chrome strip. Mercedes says that the new
New Level 1
The C-Class Cabriolet is the new entry level to top-down Mercedes-Benz motoring. It’s the first-ever C-Class cab, unless you count the CLK, which we don’t because it was expensive and niche. This one will surely have more mainstream appeal and is a good example of the German marque’s push into more “accessible” luxury markets.
In 2016 Mercedes-Benz releases the all-new 2017 C-Class. Ours will be the all-wheel-drive C 300 4MATIC model. autoTRADER.ca got a chance to see and drive the C 300 in Malaga, Spain.
After the C 300 come the enthusiast models, the 2017 Mercedes-AMG C 63 and C 63 S. They brought these to Spain as well, strapped us in and put us on a track so we
Hey, two white cars in a row -- lucky me! White does look good on a luxury sedan I will concede, and actually it looks good on a lot of cars for that matter. This week, instead of the pervasive compact car and Canadian bestseller I'm driving a luxury version of the "compact sedan", the Mercedes-Benz C400 4MATIC.
Of course this is a litt
The BMW 3 Series, Audi A4 and Mercedes C-Class have been among Canada’s top-selling luxury vehicles in recent years – with the Mercedes taking the recent sales lead amongst the “big three” German luxury sedans. Each of these luxury sedans is a great pick for technology, comfort, design, performance, and safety. None is the right, or wrong, choice w
There may be no ‘i’ in team, but more surprisingly, there’s also no Benz in the new Mercedes-AMG C 63. This latest C-Class super sport sedan introduces to mainstream models Mercedes’ new AMG naming hierarchy that debuted on its Porsche 911-fighting Mercedes-AMG GT : the sportiest models are now Mercedes-AMG products, and the most track-ready of th
Genesis, Hyundai's luxury brand, has just revealed their new compact luxury sedan. The entry-level G70 goes on sale in Korea next week and will arrive in Canada in spring 2018.
The G70 completes the Genesis sedan lineup, sitting alongside the full-size G90 flagship and mid-size G80 . It's aimed squarely at the big German three, the BMW 3, the
Genesis has made no bones about it. The G70 is here to compete. And it’s here to do battle with the age-old masters of the compact sport sedan category – the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Audi A4, and BMW 3 Series. Challenging these established monsters head-to-head is a lofty proposition, and some may scoff at first. Let’s have a closer look at the all-n
No doubt the executives at Hyundai knew the immense challenge they faced in launching the Genesis brand. From brand awareness and perception to pricing and sales strategy – to the amount of wiggle in each button and dial – every move and product would be under the microscope, from media and consumers to competing companies ready to respond to anoth
This here lusciously red 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia sport sedan prompted an office debate on the best-looking cars on the market. I came back from a photo shoot singing its praises, my colleagues surely wondering what exactly happened out there. For me, this is clearly the best-looking four-door vehicle for sale in North America – and that’s any vehi
SEOUL – In 2015, Genesis became South Korea’s first standalone homegrown luxury brand. Granted, prior to this there were a number of Hyundai cars wearing a Genesis badge, but now we no longer utter the “H-word” when speaking of Genesis. Genesis is to Hyundai what Lexus is to Toyota and Infiniti is to Nissan.
As Biermann said over lunch, “For
