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?
Testing cars these days is much trickier than it used to be. Now when you take a fräulein to the mall in your partially-disguised 2011 Mercedes E-Class convertible some car nut with an iPhone's there to take photos.
The new Mercedes E-Class was launched in Britain with a tree-hugging ad stating "It's a pleasure, but not a guilty one." The UK's national Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) disagreed and told them to pull the print advertisement. Who is right?
This twin-turbo Brabus E V12 uses 800 HP, 1047 Lb-Ft and 230 MPH to justify a wild bodykit, faired rear wheels and a clear hood. We bet it'd kick a CTS-V's ass around Laguna.
Want to make your E coupe handle a tad better without going crazy with modifications? Still willing to drop some fairly serious cash? Carlsson's got you covered.
When we drove from Manhattan to Detroit's Woodward Dream Cruise, it got us thinking about the Holy Grail of American road trips: all the way across the country. It has to be done, but behind the wheel of what?
