PostHeaderIcon 2019 Mercedes C-Class – Details, Pictures and Specs

The next model to get a refresh in Daimler’s extensive range for the new year is the C-Class sedan. The new 2019 Mercedes C-Class gets the same sort of upgrades we saw yesterday on the Maybach, in that it becomes cleaner, more luxurious, and overall classier than the model it replaces. 

On the outside the 2019 Mercedes C-Class gets revised head and taillights and, depending on the trim, you may get some nice chrome strips as well. The bumpers have also been revised for a more upmarket look, and the diamond grille is now standard. These little details add up to make the mini S-Class look more refined than ever. Same goes for the interior where you get some nice new options such as 3D wood veneer in pore brown walnut or open-pore anthracite oak, Magma grey/black AMG leather upholstery, and Multicontour Seat package.

A cool highlight of the 2019 C-Class is a fully digital instrument display from the S-Class with three “Classic”, “Sport” and “Progressive” styles. Other high brow features include the optionally available MULTIBEAM LED headlamps with ULTRA RANGE, ENERGIZING comfort control, optional wireless charging system, and the latest-generation COMAND Online system, plus Mercedes me connect with Concierge service. Details of the market-specific engine lineup as well as the upcoming AMG versions will be announced closer the car’s launch at Geneva Motor Show in March.






The C-Class in its current generation was Mercedes-Benz’s top-selling model in its fourth year on sale. Worldwide sales topped 415,000 in 2017. The C-Class is produced at four plants on four continents. These are the lead plant in Bremen (Germany) plus East London (South Africa), Tuscaloosa (USA) and Beijing (China). The Beijing plant also produces the long version of the C-Class Saloon, which is built and sold exclusively in China. China was the biggest market for the C-Class in 2017

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class Gets Cosmetic Upgrades

In an effort to keep the discerning customers of their Maybach series happy, Mercedes has come up with a number of visual upgrades for the 2018 version of the luxury saloon. In this treatment the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class gets even more exquisite interior color combos, optional two-tone paint jobs, and a new radiator grille. 

If we cut to the chase, the two-tone paint works available for the 2018 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class include armagnac brown/black and savanna beige/black. There will be nine color combinations available in total, complete with double clear coat which creates a brilliant surface finish with a piano lacquer effect that gives the paint job a special depth.

These should improve the aesthetics of the Maybach, especially when teamed up with new luxury 20-inch multi-spoke wheels. on the whole three exclusive 20-inch wheels are available for the Maybach, including a 20-hole design from the Mercedes-Maybach S-Cabriolet. As for the interior, black Maybach Exclusive nappa leather upholstery appointments can also be ordered with a choice of copper-, gold- or platinum-coloured contrasting topstitching. There is also trim inserts in designo flowing lines Magnolia for those with an ultra-refined taste.

The 2018 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class featuring the new upgrades can be seen at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show in S560 guise with or without all-wheel-drive. It features a 469 hp/700 Nm 4.0 liter V8 engine.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 Mercedes-AMG G63 Goes Official with 585 hp

People keep telling us the horsepower war between German automakers is a thing of the past. How, then, will they explain the new 2019 Mercedes-AMG G63, which is more powerful than ever? This mighty offroader now packs an insane 585 horsepower from a 4.0 liter V8. 

Based on the new generation of the G-Wagen with its cute new lights and fancy interior, the 2019 Mercedes-AMG G63 is also the most capable iteration of this car ever built. Zero to 100 km/h takes only 4.5 seconds. That alone is mind-boggling in a car this size. The limited maximum speed of 220 km/h, or 240 km/h with the AMG Driver‘s package, is the other astonishing figure, no less than the titanic 850 Nm of torque the engine generates. Not that anyone cares, but the combined fuel consumption is 13.2 l/100 km, and the combined CO2 emissions 299 g/km,mainly thanks to cylinder deactivation system.

The running gear in the 2019 Mercedes-AMG G63 consists of AMG Performance 4MATIC all-wheel drive and a 95 SPEEDSHIFT transmission. Add to that the AMG RIDE CONTROL suspension and adaptive adjustable damping, AMG speed-sensitive steering, and AMG DYNAMIC SELECT driving modes, and you have a speed machine that is unstoppable regardless of the terrain. For the first time the big G could outperform the mighty Range Rover offroad thanks to its new “Sand”, “Trail” and “Rock” settings.

The AMG G63 is distinguished from a regular G-Wagen by virtue of its Panamericana grille, sports bumpers with large intakes up, flared arches, and the signature side exhausts. New 21 and 22 inch wheels also add to the unique look of the AMG. The interior, meanwhile, is onpar with that of a S63 Coupe in terms of design, quality and equipment, while maintaining its utility and functionality. The new G63 will go on sale at the end of March, and first cars will arrive in August.

PostHeaderIcon Production Mercedes-AMG GT Coupe Set for Geneva Debut

So a year after making its debut as a concept, the four-door Mercedes-AMG GT Coupe is coming to Geneva Motor Show, this time in full production trim. Taking on the likes of Porsche Panamera and Maserati Quattroporte, the four-door GT is one of the hottest cars to be launched this year. 

Following last year’s debut the Mercedes-AMG GT Coupe was dispatched around the world in form of development cars to undergo a number of vigorous tests. IF this GT wishes to beat the Panamera at its own game, it needs to be a quality product. It won’t be enough just looking better and going faster. This class of vehicles has to be an altogether uncompromising specimen, equally at home on Monte Carlo’s streets as it is at Silverstone.

That is a tall order, but if anyone can do it, it’s those mental engineers at AMG. The production Mercedes-AMG GT Coupe should not differ much from the concept design-wise, although some changes would be inevitable. But even if the finished product is toned down a bit, the thing would still be a looker. The EQ Power+ hybrid powertrain will be featured in the four-door GT, but their final specs are yet to be revealed. There is going to be different power outputs and different packages for customization.






“With the Mercedes-AMG GT Concept we are giving a preview of our third completely autonomously developed sports car. And extending the attractive AMG GT family to include a four-door variant. Plus the GT Concept – like the AMG Hypercar, which we are presenting at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt – illustrates how we are defining performance of the future at AMG. Impressive driving dynamics coupled with high efficiency, resulting from an innovative drive system and tailored to the vehicle segment in question – that is Future Performance made by AMG. With our AMG GT Concept that means a combination of an ultramodern V8 petrol engine and a high-performance electric motor. Both intelligently networked and with a modular battery concept with a combination of extremely powerful yet light batteries. This performance hybrid powertrain offers an impressive electric range and the opportunity to generate a system output of up to 600 kW in its last level of development. It covers the sprint from 0-100 in less than three seconds – which corresponds to a super sports car level” says Tobias Moers, CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.

PostHeaderIcon AMG Teases Cigarette Racing 515 Project ONE Speedboat

The partnership between Mercedes-AMG and Cigarette Racing is legendary. Every time AMG comes up with a new supercar the boat makers release a special model celebrating that car. And so now it is time for a speedboat version of the AMG Project One, and it’s called Cigarette Racing 515 Project ONE.

Right now we only have a teaser drawing of this magnificent thing to drool over, but the wait is not going to be long since Cigarette Racing 515 Project ONE will be revealed next week at the Miami Boat Show (February 15, 2018). Judging by what we can see, the boat tries to replicate the unique look of the hypercar with a special paint work featuring a silver base and black accents. As the sea-faring equivalent of the Project one, is also going to be fast. Like, really fast. And just like the car, it is going to be the privilege of a select few to enjoy its looks and performance.

Just to recap, the Mercedes AMG Project One hypercar is the ultimate effort at making a Formula One car for the road. It literally uses F1 powertrain technology with a 1.6-litre V6 hybrid petrol engine with direct injection and electrically assisted single turbocharging that revs up to 11,000 rpm! The unit generates more than 1,000 hp and has a top speed beyond 350 km/h, which are the hypercar norms these days. There will also be two further 120 kW electric motors at the front axle, making the One four-wheel-drive. It remains to be seen if the boat is as much of a techno-feast as the car.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 Mercedes Sprinter Is a Jack of All Trades

No, really. Whatever your trade is, chances are there is a version of the new 2019 Mercedes Sprinter that fits your needs. The Mercedes of vans was unveiled minutes ago with three main body styles of panel van, tourer, and construction truck, and more than 1700 different configurations! 

It is fairly pointless to talk about the deign of a new van, even though the 2019 Mercedes Sprinter does look quite good and fancy. So let’s begin with the technology and see what makes the new Sprinter special. The new model comes with Mercedes PRO connect combined with the  MBUX multimedia systems. This makes managing a fleet a lot more convenient as you can connect the vehicles and use services such as Vehicle Supervision, Vehicle Operations, Fleet Communication, Maintenance Management and a digital Driver’s Logbook.

As for the practicality, the new model has a lower load sill and 50 kg more load capacity (up to17 m3 with tonnages up to 5.5 tonnes). There is also new front setup for the all-wheel-drive system, two newly developed transmissions for front-wheel drive including a 6-speed manual and a nine-speed automatic. Other highlights of the 2019 Mercedes Sprinter equipment-wise include self-cleaning reversing camera showing its image in the rear-view mirror, a modern Parking package with a 360-degree view, and a rain sensor with an integrated Wet Wiper system for optimum visibility.

“The inland port in Duisburg stands for globality and modern logistics at the highest level. It is therefore the perfect environment in which to present the new Sprinter. The Sprinter continues to embody the traditional attributes that have made it so successful worldwide since its market launch – flexibility, robustness and economy. At the same time it impresses with unrivalled modernity, for example with its connectivity and incomparable variability. This makes it the first end-to-end system solution for commercial fleets, both for Mercedes-Benz Vans and for the entire industry,” says Volker Mornhinweg, Head of Mercedes-Benz Vans.

PostHeaderIcon This Is the 2020 Mercedes-AMG A45, Probably

Only a day after the debut of the new 2019 Mercedes A-Class, the internet gives us our first look at the AMG version of the premium hatchback. The 2020 Mercedes-AMG A45 seems to be spot on, at least based on what we know of AMG’s methods in turning ordinary Mercs into hotrods. 

That said, there are a couple of issues with this rendering that might put off the more pedantic viewer. The first is the name itself. The 2020 Mercedes-AMG A45 may not even happen. They are still going to make an AMG version of it, but it will probably get a new model name, most likely the A53. But who cares about the name? The other issue is the front grille which in the new generation of AMG Mercs is a modern interpretation of the Panamericana grille. Apart from that, this is almost certainly how the next hotted-up baby Merc will look like.

As for the power and performance and all that, if we go by the way things were done when the first A45 came out, the new model should have around 400 horsepower. But things are a-changing, and there is talk of further downsizing and limiting the power output in favor of higher efficiency. That would be for the best, since even the current A45 does not make much sense given how much it costs. Who needs a 400 horsepower, four-wheel-drive hatchback that costs as much as a sport sedan?

PostHeaderIcon 2019 Mercedes A-Class Is a Mini CLS with S-Class Features

They did promise to give us something amazing with the new model and boy have they delivered! The new 2019 Mercedes A-Class is about as premium as hatchbacks can get. The design is reminiscent much bigger, more luxurious models, and as for features, it leaves the competition for dead. 

The looks of 2019 Mercedes A-Class on the outside is a tad controversial. It looks like the CLS had a mini-me version created for it from pretty much any angle save the rear. There you find a pair of not so pretty taillights that reminds one of Hyundai products to be frank. But the whole looks pretty high class, especially inside the cabin where you could really mistake it for an S-Class.

The new baby Benz comes with S-Class-like features as well. This is a family hatchback with tech stuff like MBUX highly advanced infotainment with AI, multibeam LED lights, and semi-autonomous driving. There is also head-up display, 3D graphics, navigation functions based on Car-to-X communication, Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC, Active Emergency Stop Assist, Active Lane Change Assist, Active Brake Assist, and a ton of other technology features.

Engine-wise, 2019 Mercedes A-Class launches as A200 with 163 hp, 250 Nm; A250 with 224 hp, 350 Nm; and A180d with 116 hp, 260 Nm. A 7G-DCT dual clutch transmission is standard across the range. On request the new A-Class is available with the permanent all-wheel drive system 4MATIC with fully variable torque distribution.

“With the fourth generation of the A-Class, we are redefining modern luxury in the compact class. To do this we have opted for a combination of uncompromisingly dynamic design and an intuitive operating concept,” says Britta Seeger, the member of the Daimler AG Board of Management responsible for Mercedes-Benz Cars sales. “With MBUX – the new Mercedes-Benz User Experience – we are creating a completely new customer experience.”

PostHeaderIcon IMSA Mercedes-AMG S63 Packs a 720-hp Punch

German tuner IMSA is known to those who have know a thing or two about the world of high-end tuning as the firm with some of the craziest body kits ever. With their latest project, however, they have gone sensible and focused mainly on performance. The result is this IMSA Mercedes-AMG S63 which they have re-badged the S720. 

And there’s a clue as to the kind of power you can expect from this luxurious and classy monster. Don’t get us wrong. IMSA Mercedes-AMG S63 does come with a number of new body components. But these are very subtle and understated compared what we usually expect from this tuner, and their main purpose it to enhance the performance and make the car faster. They do so through a combination of weight saving and aerodynamic efficiency.

The carbon parts tailored for the S720 include a pair of side sills, special air intakes, and rear diffuser with new tailpipes. The aero components are complemented with a set of CR2 alloy wheels based on the customer’s request, shod with 9×21 with tires in 255-35/21 on the front axle and 10,5×21 with 295-30/21 at the rear axle. Again the wheels are mainly there for performance reasons and the cool look they result in is an added bonus.









But the biggest highlight of IMSA Mercedes-AMG S63 remains the heavily tricked-out V8 engine. The main mods they have implemented on this unit include in-house turbo-chargers, downpipes made of stainless steel and catalysts, and remapping of engine and transmission control modules. The owner can now enjoys 720 horsepower and 990 Nm of torque.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 Mercedes G-Class Goes Official in Detroit

With a lot of pomp and circumstance, and with a guest appearance from Arnold Schwarzenegger, Daimler unveiled the new 2019 Mercedes G-Class at the Detroit Motor Show. The much improved G-Wagen looks almost identical to its predecessor, and that is a good thing. 

Everybody’s happy that Mercedes didn’t give in to temptations for a radical redesign of this icon. Granted, 2019 Mercedes G-Class does look a little cuddlier around the front, but that is about the biggest change in styling you can find. The rest is just softening the rough edges and making the whole thing more round and nice. Inside the cabin, however, changes have been more profound and very welcome. The entirely new cabin of the G-Class looks better than the outgoing model and features more tech and better ergonomics.

Among the main highlights of the 2019 Mercedes G-Class inside the cabin there is the double display feature for infotainment and instruments, a design that will be implemented on all new models over the next few years. The legendary off-roader also comes with a new suspension and full LED lights, not to mention more space for people and their luggage. The chassis is partly developed by AMG and boasts independent suspension with double-wishbone front axle in combination with a rigid rear axle. This and the electronic aids of the DYNAMIC SELECT system make the new G-Class even more amazing offroad and a lot better on it as well.

The 2019 G-Class launches in the U.S. in G 550 guise featuring a 420 horsepower 4.0-liter V8 gasoline engine with 450 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to a 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission with torque converter which is the optimum choice for offroading. It is rare for a new version of a universally beloved car not to be disappointing. But the Big G pulls it off. It’s pretty much perfect!

“Enhancing an icon such as the G-Class in technological terms was both a challenge and an opportunity at the same time. Each part and every bolt came under close scrutiny,” explains Dr. Gunnar Güthenke, Head of the Off-Road Product Group at Mercedes-Benz. “With the body, our main focus was on increasing the vehicle rigidity and the connections between the suspension and drivetrain with the ladder-type frame.”

PostHeaderIcon Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) Unveiled at CES 2018

The trendiest trend in the auto world in 2018 seems to be artificial intelligent. Car makers are scrambling to get ahead in this field, and Mercedes-Benz just made a huge leap with their new infotainment system. Unveiled at CES in Las Vegas, the new Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) is an infotainment system infused with AI. 

You still get all the traditional features of a good in-car entertainment and connectivity system, only with the MBUX they are better. You get high-resolution Widescreen Cockpit with touchscreen operation, navigation and voice recognition. But these in the Mercedes-Benz User Experience are complemented with augmented reality technology plus intelligent voice control with natural speech recognition. Think of this system as a big in-car smartphone. “Hey Mercedes” is the phrase that activates the thing.

But the coolest feature of Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) is its artificial intelligent. You have to be an advanced AI yourself to figure out how it works, but basically this AI can be individualised and adapts to suit the user. Mercedes says it creates an “emotional” connection between the car and the users, which sounds like hyperbole to be honest. But it could be true, if the system really can understand you and take care of your needs the best it can. That is how we form emotional connections, mainly through our needs.






The system is part of Mercedes me Connectivity technologies and can be updated over the air. It will enter series production later this year, used in the entire new compact car generation from Mercedes-Benz

PostHeaderIcon Mercedes-Benz GLS Grand Edition Announced for USA

Americans love their SUVs plush, and so Mercedes announced the launch of a more ‘Grand’ version of their GLS for the US market. The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLS Grand Edition comes with exclusive interior and exterior elements that set it apart from the standard version.

The cost of this extra luxuriousness will be announced after the debut of Mercedes-Benz GLS Grand Edition at the Detroit Auto Show and before it reaches the dealerships in mid-2018. It will be available on both GLS450 4MATIC and GLS550 4MATIC, so if you only want to look top-of-the-line but don’t big power to go with it you can get the smaller, cheaper one and still enjoy the looks and amenities.

As for what makes the Mercedes-Benz GLS Grand Edition special, on the outside we have exclusive badges and fancy new wheels. But here is a giveaway as to which version of the Grand you are driving. The GLS450 4MATIC features 20-inch 10-spoke two-tone wheels and an advanced LED Intelligent Light System. The GLS550 4MATIC is as standard equipped with 21-inch wheels and Active LED headlamps. So keep that in mind.







The interior of the Grand GLS is more lavishly equipped, with the highlights including Porcelain / Espresso Brown and designo Nappa leather seats with exclusive diamond quilting and special Budapest-design piping, open pore brown ash trim with light stripes and a Nappa leather dashboard, and finally ambient lighting and Espresso Brown velour floor mats.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 Mercedes G-Class – First Official Details and Pictures

After giving us a taste of the new 2019 Mercedes G-Class interior, Daimler has now released the first photos of the legendary SUV flexing its muscles on an offroad course. Granted, it’s a heavily camo’d prototype, but it does reveal pretty much all that is new about this model.

Nobody, of course, expects the 2019 Mercedes G-Class to come with a radical new design. It is going to maintain the iconic boxy shape of its predecessor. The new stuff are mainly trivial details such as rounder headlights, slimmer taillights, new bumper design, and a more prominent grille. And that’s alright. We don’t our beloved G-Wagen to look any different. The interior changes have been more substantial, giving the big G a more refined and luxurious feel inside the cabin.

As for the technical specs, while the performance figures of the 2019 Mercedes G-Class are yet to be released, we have some initial details to drool over. The characteristic features of the G-Wgen, i.e. ladder- type frame, three 100-percent differential locks and LOW RANGE off-road ratio are still there. These are complemented with independent suspension with double-wishbone front axle and rigid rear axle. So you can expect not just better offroad capabilities, but also nicer on-road handling. There is a new “G-Mode” which is an automatically engaged extra-clever offroad mode that manipulates adjustable damping of the chassis and the steering as well as the accelerator to make you an offroad expert even if you are nothing of the sort.

Other highlights of the new 2019 G-Class include a 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission with torque converter, geared for comfort, efficiency and maximum ability, 360° camera with bird’s eye view and guiding lines, and 18-inch all-terrain tires. Below you find some of the most impressive facts and figures about the new G’s capabilities…

//Slope climbing ability of up to 100% on suitable surfaces

//Ground clearance between the axles: 241 millimeters (+6 millimeters )

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Mercedes S-Class Cabriolet (S560, S63, S65) UK Pricing and Specs

Mercedes-Benz UK announced the official pricing of the new 2018 Mercedes S-Class Cabriolet family. It may seem like odd timing giving the weather right now, but you see they are not taking orders for these bad boys in preparation for the spring 2018 launch. So it’ll all work out. The new S-Cabrio comes out just the weather becomes suitable for alfresco motoring. 

So let’s see how much the privilege of enjoying the new 2018 Mercedes S-Class Cabriolet will cost you. The minimum you have to pay to get into one of these is £115,910. That is the price of the “entry-level” S560 model which replaces the S500 and brings with it a new 4.0-litre biturbo V8 petrol engine. You get 469 hp and 700 Nm of torque, a nine-speed automatic gearbox, and 0 to 62 mph in 4.6 seconds. Not that it matters, but average fuel consumption is 31.4 mpg with 204 g/km of CO2.

Next up we have the magnificent 2018 Mercedes-AMG S63 UK-spec. 612 hp and 900 Nm is the power you get from the 4.0 liter biturbo V8 in this one, via the AMG Speedshift MCT 9G-Tronic nine-speed gearbox which makes possible 0 to 62 mph in 4.2 seconds.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 Mercedes G-Class Interior Revealed in Official Photos

With the world premiere of the all-new 2019 Mercedes G-Class set for the Detroit Auto Show in January, the German automaker is giving us a Christmas treat. They have released a bunch of photos completely revealing the SUV’s interior design. And it’s a fine blend of old and new, incorporating the current design themes of Mercedes-Benz into the unique shape of the G-Wagen‘s upright dashboard. 

To be honest an upgrade to the big G’s cabin was long overdue. They did give it a new steering or a fancy screen now and then, but the overhaul that comes with the 2019 Mercedes G-Class is a real improvement in terms of design and ergonomics. There is more space in the new cabin, more luxury and comfort features, and fewer sharp edges that could seriously hurt you in the event of an accident. The main highlights include a new dashboard, instrument panel and center console in line with other Mercedes products of this era, plus new steering wheel, infotainment screen and seats.

The iconic features, such as the grab handle in front of the passenger or the chrome-highlighted switches for the differential locks have been preserved. The driving position is also pure G-Wagen, giving you a command of the road ahead. We have to say though, some of the enw techy features on the 2019 Mercedes g-Class may not be very suitable for offroad use. For example, touch-sensitive Touch Control Buttons on the steering wheel respond to swiping motions in the same way as the surface of a smartphone. then again, teh G is designed mainly for the high streets of fashionable cities and not messy offroad courses.






There are plenty of storage spaces inside the 2019 Mercedes G-Class, and you got ample cargo space as well, as rear seats can be folded down to 60, 40 or 100 percent. AS always, there are a bunch of personalization options under the designo program with a range of exquisite colors for the leather and refined materials for the trim. And while the standard audio system features seven loudspeakers, but you can have that upgraded to Burmester surround sound system with 16 speakers and a 590 watt amplifier.

Stay tuned for more on the new G-Class over the coming days and weeks.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 Mercedes CLS Rendered in a Bunch of Guises

Don’t like the new 2019 Mercedes CLS? Want to see it butchered in by Photoshop? Well then you’ve come to the right place! Maybe butchered is not a fair word to use here, seeing as the shooting brake and coupe variants are looking pretty good. But you will agree the CLS pickup and that CLS 63 AMG depicted here are kind of horrendous. 

This is not to say that artist has done a bad job. Not at all. Technically, these renderings are top works. It’s just the idea of a Mercedes CLS pickup truck that is revolting and doesn’t make any sense. The same goes for the CLS 63 AMG which, as you may know, is not going to happen. Anf hallelujah to that, if it were going to look like this. The next AMG CLS will be called CLS 53 and it’s a hybrid. So chances are AMG designer will steer clear of their usual tricks and come up with some new elements.

Now for the eye candies… Let’s begin with the Mercedes CLS Shooting Brake which is a nice thing to look at on account of its sexy sloping roof. Granted, the front-end is still controversial, but at least with the Shooting Brake one does not have to look at the hideous back end featured on the standard CLS. As for the two-door and convertible models rendered here, they are awesome and hopefully we will see them in real life as the next generaion E-Coupe and E-Cabrio.

PostHeaderIcon Prior Design Mercedes X-Class Is Extra Wide

The first tuner to treat the new Mercedes X-Class pickup truck like a proper Benz is Prior Design. They have come have come up with a wide body package for the workhorse which kind of nullifies the whole point of the vehicle, but makes it look a helluva lot cooler. 

The PD500 package as they call the Prior Design Mercedes X-Class wide body consists of a few simple parts that replace the original components. They are designed for the sole purpose of increasing the X-Class’ sex appeal. So you get massive new bumpers and skirts and fenders. And while these are not very practical for, say, farm work, they look absolutely sensational when you cruise around town in your tricked-out truck.

The ingredients of the Prior Design Mercedes X-Class include an aggressive front bumper featuring large air intakes with dark accents and extra louvers, equally impressive rear bumper with cutouts for diffuser and tailpipes, and front and rear widening complemented with sport side skirts. These bits are designed as part of a package and you need to order them together as they do not work individually. You can’t have the fenders without the bumpers and vice versa.









But you can order the PD400 package which is like a basic version of the package. It still gets you the extra wide fenders but with revised custom bumpers. It looks good, the PD400, but the full-fat version is what you really want.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 Mercedes CLS Facelift Unveiled in Los Angeles

So here it is ladies and gents, the new 2019 Mercedes CLS in official glory. As we knew from the numerous teasers we were treated to prior to reveal, the new CLS features an evolutionary design, blending the classic lines of the original model, conceived in 2003, with the latest Mercedes-Benz design trends. 

The result is a handsome four-door coupe which looks more dynamic than ever in profile. But one cannot gloss over the fact that the new lights on the 2019 Mercedes CLS, especially those on the rear, will prove quite controversial. Already we can hear the internet chatter likening those lights to all sorts of unsavory things. But we think the design of the new CLS is a job well-done on the whole. It certainly looks as outlandish and as exciting as the original, but it’s even more futuristic,making it the perfect shape for the present!

One thing about the 2019 Mercedes CLS that is completely new is the engine lineup. The sexy sedan launches with three new six-cylinder units. The CLS 350 d 4MATIC gets 286 hp, CLS 400 d 4MATIC a 340 hp version, and CLS 450 4MATIC 367 hp + 22 hp thanks to EQ Boost mild hybrid system. Among the technology highlights of the new CLS we can mention AIR BODY CONTROL suspension, ENERGIZING comfort controls and the very latest infotainment generation, smartphone connectivity via Mercedes-Benz Link and wireless charging.

Features-wise, the standard kit on the 2019 CLS include LED High Performance headlamps, 18?inch light-alloy wheels with mixed tyres, Lane Keeping Assist, Speed Limit Assist, a 12.3?inch media display, ambience lighting including illuminated air vents, Mercedes me connect services and a communication module with LTE. There is a special First Edition model which gets fancy trims and colors, and later on you get anAMG version, designated for the first time ’53’ powered by a turbocharged six-cylinder engine.

PostHeaderIcon Forgiato’s Mercedes G500 4×4 Is Dopeness Overload

We have seen many different takes on the already bonkers Mercedes G500 4×4 Squared since the car’s launch. But we have to admit we liked none of them as much as this new one, which is curious, because all the mods it features is a set of wheels. But what a set of wheels it is!

This unique and utterly handsome Mercedes G500 4×4 rocks a set of Forgiato Origini-T wheels shod with extra-chunky off-road tires. The G500 has never been much of an on-road performer anyway – unlike its G63 cousin – so we reckon the tuner has made a fair trade here, gaining extra off-road capabilities with those tires while losing some of the car’s tarmac performance. Another advantage of that massive set of wheels and tires is the dope look they result in. It’s as if the 4×4 was always meant to look like this. That is how brilliant the fitment is. Mind you, we should also mention the amazing color on this particular G500 – is it Copenhagen Silver? – which play a big part in giving the SUV that overall excessive dopeness.

Mercedes G500 4×4, in case you have forgotten, is one of the most fun versions of the G-Wagen. It features jacked-up suspension and portal axles from the G63 6×6 and has a 4.0 litre V8 biturbo engine developing 420 horsepower. The SUV is also very luxurious. The G500 4×4² offers an exclusive ambience with the designo Exclusive package. The seat bolsters and head restraints as well as the dashboard, centre console and armrests in the doors are styled in black designo leather with white contrasting topstitching. The seat surfaces and door panels are covered in DINAMICA microfibre and impress with their attractive diamond-design quilting. In addition to this there is DINAMICA trim for the roof liner and the body pillars.
