Oh, hello. It’s your rich alter ego checking in. I must confess that despite my extreme optimism about the economy, I’ve had something on my mind.
Audi and Volvo—with Allroad and Cross Country, respectively— already know they can get away with throwing lifts on wagons and selling them as new models. Now Mercedes has hopped in on the fun with the new E-Class All-Terrain. It’s macho and burley and totally not the same as the wagon. Nope, not at all.
Mercedes has pulled the plug on at least one advertisement for the new E-Class after multiple groups reached out to the Federal Trade Commission to investigate the ad campaign for overstating the vehicle’s driver-assistance systems.
A Mercedes print ad that is featured in multiple magazines advertising a “self-driving car from a very self-driven company” doesn’t actually feature a self-driving car.
Mercedes showed off its new sexy wagon lineup today, but we only mentioned the E400 because, right now, that’s the only one to be sold in America. But, having stared at it long enough, the E43 AMG is worth talking about.
I get it. You need a car that can move the whole family, but you can’t stand the thought of a minivan and don’t want to be a crossover-buying sheep. If you have the cash, the all new 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class wagon might be the perfect 7-passenger car.
I really, really love the new Mercedes E-Class. It’s easily the most mature rung on the ladder towards the S-Class, and quite possibly the most accessibly comfortable car in the brand’s lineup. The new Mercedes-AMG E43, the “sportier” E-Class, might just be the best all-around Mercedes money can buy.
Mercedes really doesn’t want you worrying about their new Car-to-X technology on their E-Class, so they brought in a researcher from MIT to tell the rest of us that robots won’t take over the world and enslave mankind.
Like many of its potential buyers, the E-Class has gotten a facelift. Most cars go through this sort of mid-life crisis refresh, and many would argue the old E-Class needed one particularly, with a somewhat fussy trapezoid-ish quad headlight setup and four more round driving lights below.
The 2014 Mercedes E63 AMG has been making the rounds in camouflage for a few months. But we haven't gotten a chance to see it in the flesh.
Just three weeks after the new E-Class sedan and the estate came to light, Mercedes-Benz also presented the coupe and convertible members of the family. First thoughts? Well, after calling the sedan dull, I'm happy to say that the two-door/chopped roof treatment made the refreshed design look quite a lot better. They…
Two days after we showed it to you, Mercedes-Benz gave us all the details about it's newest E-Class. We said the car's redesigned front and S-Class shaped profile looks dull, and thought that the sedan's backside could bore even a hardcore Lexus fan, while they refer to it as "emotionally appealing".
Here it is, the brand new E-Class in all its glory. As you can see, the biggest change is that Mercedes-Benz's most important model will switch from the dual-pod lights seen on the current one to single units with LED wizardry. I guess that's how Stuttgart says "hi" to Ingolstadt.
AMG's new, 5.5-liter bi-turbocharged V8 impressed us in the CLS63, even if it didn't snarl like the old 6.2-liter naturally-aspirated blaster. Today, the turbo trickled into the midfield, showing up in the E-Class. Better mileage, too, for more greenness.
Mental note: the tide of the River Thames comes in and out twice in every 24 hours. One who parks his Audi in a slipway to catch a London rowing competition must consider such tides. This guy apparently didn't.
In today's advertising world the question isn't whether your car commercial has a famous spokesperson, indie music or flashy graphics. The question is, when you turn on one of these ten sexually suggestive car commercials, does it return the favor?
