Mercedes-Benz – Concept Shooting Break – Video

The Shooting Break Concept, debuting at the auto show in China this week, is a sneak peek at the upcoming CLS-Class redesign due to be revealed in Paris in September. It is also possible that a version of this concept car will make it to production to compete with some of the other “wagon-coupe” niche vehicles in the marketplace

2011 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Convertibles Coming Soon!

2011 E-Class Convertible
Mercedes has announced the specifications for the E350 Cabriolet Demo vehicle that Atlanta Classic Cars will receive three weeks before the official launch of the E-Class Convertibles as well as the specifications for the E550 Cabriolet Launch Edition. The Launch Edition of the E550 Coupe was hugely popular when it came out last year and was quickly sold out. They are only making one Launch Edition and one Demo Vehicle per dealership.

Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class Sculpture – Detroit Auto Show

Unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show this week, this sculpture is likely the basis for the 2012 CLS redesign scheduled for release in 2011. The SLS style grille is the most obvious change and Mercedes officials say this is the first vehicle headed away from the tradition wedge-shape and toward a more art-deco inspired design.

2011 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Wagon – Motor Trend

Mercedes 2011 E-Class Wagon

The 2011 Mercedes E350 4matic wagon is scheduled to arrive in the US this June. I think the wagon is a great vehicle for passengers and cargo. It is also such an iconic vehicle for Mercedes.

“Sure-footed four-corner traction: Standard. Height-adjustable rear AirMatic suspension for deep-snow ground clearance: Standard. Luggage-rack rails ready to accept your Thule ski-rack: Standard…Seating for seven (okay, five and two-halves): Standard. Iconic style and a hood ornament that commands respect from the apres-ski club valets: Standard. Could there be a more perfect vehicle than the new Mercedes E-Class wagon for driving up to Deer Valley, Whistler, or Hochgurgl, Austria?”

“With all systems on, the car faithfully cleaves to the driver’s intended driving line — at least to the extent that physics can allow (which is impressively high when the various electromechanical traction assistants are abetted by a set of Continental ContiWinterContact footwear).”

“The seat is still comfortable, however, offering oodles of headroom and a panoramic view of the passing Alpine scenery. Another cool feature: once the rear doors have been opened and closed, a screen on the driver’s information display indicates which (if any) seat belts have been fastened.”

“The 2011 E350 4Matic wagon goes on sale in June, 2010 (all-wheel-drive sedans are available now) at a price that’s yet to be determined, but if the price difference relative to the sedan stays roughly the same as it was on the W211 generation, it should drop to $54,500 or so.”

Mercedes-Benz History And Future Of Passenger Safety


If you ask most people which car company was the first to use seat belts, airbags, and electronic stability systems in their cars they would probably credit another European automaker that is always hyping thier safety. Since a Mercedes-Benz is so much more than just the safest car on the road, their rich history of pioneering safety innovations is often overlooked. We invented airbags, crash testing, stability control and now Attention Assist all with the goal of first, preventing the accident, and then keeping you safe from injury if it can’t be prevented.
