I get the feeling that when Autoblog tested the Mercedes-Benz S550 Coupe, the Billy Joel song “Just the Way You Are” was playing through its speakers. In the site’s review of the S63 AMG Coupe, it basically tells the less-powerful two-door, “Don’t go changing to try and please me.” Autoblog seems to love it just the way it is. That’s not to say the publication hates the S63, though. See what I mean after the jump.
The Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG is a big, heavy, and above all else, hugely powerful sedan meant for blasting down the autobahn. However, with the new Hellcat contending for the same spot as the E63, can the seasoned veteran still compete on the same level as the new kid on the block for a king’s title among powerful sedans?
Both the 2007 Jaguar XJ and the Mercedes-Benz S550 from 2007 were executive-class cruising vehicles. They were also quite enjoyable to drive. Let’s take a trip down memory lane and see what they had to offer.
Folks with the standard sound systems think they sound like something out of a 2006 Honda Civic. People with the optional sound systems think they are God’s gift to ears. What are your thoughts?
If you compare the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Edition 507 coupe with the Audi RS 5 solely on the basis of name length, the Mercedes wins by a mile. If you compare both cars in their totality, things become more complicated. You may like the C63 more than the RS 5, but does it beat the […]
In years past, family truckster duties were handled by vehicles such as the affordable Chevrolet Suburban and the Jeep Grand Wagoneer. Mercedes has had just such a rig on the market for a much shorter time: the GL-Class. Motor Trend recently made one its long-term test vehicle. It ended up being loaded in more ways […]
So you’ve got $68,225 set aside to buy you years of top-down motoring. But you don’t want to test-drive a convertible in these frigid winter temperatures. Lucky for you, the crew at Autoblog braved the elements to evaluate the Mercedes-Benz E550 Cabriolet. Autoblog has even saved you trouble of deciding which color to pick. The […]
Opt for the Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG S 4MATIC over the E63 AMG S 4MATIC and you’ll lose 2 inches of headroom in the back seat … you’ll also lose $6,730 … depending on who you are, that can be a bad night in Vegas, or a bad night in a back seat anywhere in the world. Size […]
Dec. 25 came and went several weeks ago, but, recently, AutoBlog’s Steven J. Ewing probably felt as if it was Christmas morning every time he stepped out his front door and saw a Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG waiting for him. No matter the timing, it must have been because he was a good boy last year. […]
With open arms, consumers welcomed the 2014 CLA250 to the Mercedes-Benz lineup like people welcome their favorite long-lost friend to a high school reunion. In contrast, the automotive press welcomed the CLA250 to the Benz lineup like relatives welcome a drunken uncle to the family Christmas party. Consumer Reports didn’t like it, and people I know […]
