Motor Trend Comparison: GLC vs. RX vs. MKX

Motor Trend Image

Motor Trend took these mid-size SUVs for a drive through wine country and guess who won?!

Read the full review here

“The execution is also top-notch. Every material in the GLC300 feels authentic. Wood is wood, metal is metal, and even the faux leather feels more convincing than the Lincoln’s true leather. Every button, dial, and switch is designed and built to a standard rather than to a price. Mercedes-Benz has set the benchmark with the GLC300’s interior design and execution.”

“Although Mercedes’ COMAND might not be cutting-edge in terms of technology and/or screen size, at least there are multiple/redundant ways in, and it’s easy to navigate through its features using both hard buttons on the center stack and the knob/touchpad controller. Its graphics are not only sophisticated but also useful for intuitively accessing everything from vehicle preferences to manually tuning radio stations. No gimmicks, no frustrations, no “it’s just the way you have to do it.” Rather, it just worked on a level above the others.”

“The GLC is larger and improved in every measure compared to the GLK, and its handsome exterior, impeccable interior, and class-leading dynamics and efficiency only serve to underscore the value it also contains. Who would’ve guessed that a Mercedes-Benz would emerge as the least expensive, least powerful, lightest, most sophisticated, most engaging to drive, most fuel-efficient, most attractive, and thus most desirable player in this group? The GLC300 takes the gold medal. Keep your eye on this one for next year’s SUV of the Year.”

Thanks Lloyd for pointing this article out to me! Glad your GLC won!

Comparing the 2017 C300 Coupe to the 2015 C250 Coupe

Our first 2017 C300 coupes arrived today and my first move was to find a old body C-coupe for comparison. Here are the results!

2017 C300 Front End

The 2015 is the black car on the left and the 2017 is the Diamond White on the right.

Below: The top image is the 2015, with the center mounted gear shifter and the bottom is the 2017 with the column mounted selector.

The rear ends are obviously different with the 2017 being influenced by the new S-Coupe!

Mercedes-AMG GT S Review by Jalopnik

GT S Review

The Mercedes-AMG GT S is SO FUN! That is my official review. Jalopnik recently drove one for the weekend and came to a similar conclusion. I love the colorful language in this review.

“So how do you make a car this expensive, this wild, this over-the-top, and still make it absolutely great? I’m still not sure how Mercedes did it, but the Mercedes-AMG GT S, incredibly dumb name and all, is great.”

“I thought it might be an attempt at a sporty coupe for general-practice doctors from a car company that makes big and heavy yachts for thoracic surgeons.”

“Plus that button just looks like a twin-barreled cannon carried around by a demented robot.”

“Foot on the brake, press the ENGINE START/STOP button, make sure the loud exhaust is in the “on” position, because the quiet setting is mostly just for unexpected funerals and pre-getaway crime, and then make sure the parking brake is off.”

“It’s direct and communicative, and even though you sit approximately 900 miles from the tip of the car, you still know at all times what the front of the car is doing. ”

“It’s a car that you not only want to drive, it wants to be driven right back at you. And there’s nothing I could possibly want more.”

AMG Engine Builder Video!

Recently an AMG buyer used YouTube to invite his engine builder for coffee to discuss the process. The builder couldn’t make it to coffee but did post this video in response!

The 2017 E-Class Due This Summer

I’ve been getting a lot of questions about the all-new 2017 E-Class. There are great pictures and details available in the Future Vehicles section at MBUSA.com.

  • Yes, the only engine at launch is the 4-cylinder with 241 horsepower and the same torque as the V6.
  • No, no pricing yet. Probably closer to the launch date.
  • Yes, it looks like a mixture of C-Class and S-Class with some new twists thrown in!
  • No, I haven’t seen it yet. My training is June 9th and that is likely the first time I’ll see it.
  • Yes, you can order one now.
