Motor Trend has just named the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC as the SUV of the Year! It has been selling like hotcakes and I am sure that this announcement will boost it even more!
“Before we get to the “why” of the award, let’s get to the “what” of the SUV. The GLC replaces the old GLK, the little-loved, squared-off, schnauzer-faced mini-ute that will forever be known as the most believable character in Sex and the City 2.”
“The GLC is a smaller vehicle that feels every bit as well-honed as an E-Class, if not an S-Class.”
“How does the GLC compete against the other strong-selling German SUVs, the Audi Q5 and BMW X3? Solid players for sure, but we can tell from experience that the GLC does it all better. That also applies to the smaller-volume players in the segment, the Jaguar F-Pace, Maserati Levante, Porsche Macan, Acura RDX, Infiniti QX50, and Volvo XC60. All are nice premium SUVs—some even do a good job mimicking sports cars—but none is as well-rounded as the Mercedes-Benz GLC. Although not an official criteria, being the best in a given segment greatly helps secure first-place votes.”
It has been a few years since Mercedes-Benz asked us to have cars inspected before the end of the lease. Well, it’s back!

Kevin, of International MotorSports, Inc, picked up his new GLS450 this week and has already hit the road for Memorial Day weekend. He took the dirt bikes up to north Georgia for some off road fun and sent me this picture.

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz E300 should arrive very soon.
The MSRP was just announced: $52,150!
This is almost $1000 LESS than the current E-Class and when you factor in some of the new standard features it is approximately a 10% value enhancement.
New, standard features:
I will get to see the E-Class up close and personal during my training event in about 2 weeks. Check back for all of my impressions!
Atlanta Classic Cars invited a small group of AMG owners to Atlanta Motorsports Park to see what their cars could do on the track! You simply can’t appreciate your AMG when following the rules of the road!
Here is a video I made from the porch on the clubhouse. AMP is a great facility and I would highly recommend you go whenever the opportunity presents itself! Thanks to ACC and AMP for a great day!
A client of mine in South Carolina sent me this testimonial recently:
“We had one heck of a hail storm here yesterday evening. My GLK was parked outside with one of the other members of the white Mercedes club (that’s what you call it when everyone in the family has a white Mercedes), and there was a Chevy and a Honda on either side of us when it hit. Once the sky cleared, the Chevy was as dimpled as a golf ball, and the Honda took a few dents too, but both of the Mercedes were unharmed!”
Mercedes are just built of better stuff!
