Should You Warm Up Your Mercedes Engine in the Cold?

The common notion during winter is that one should let his car be idle in the cold to warm up the engine. How many times did you leave your Mercedes-Benz out in the cold, believing it will somehow make the engine run smoother when it is warmed up? This is completely and utterly wrong based on reliable sources.

According to former drag racer Stephen Ciatti, who also has a PhD in mechanical engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, said that idling one’s… Continue Reading »

The third generation ForTwo arrived last year, but the electric version was noticeably absent from the range. Luckily, there’s no need to fret because the new ForTwo Electric Drive will soon arrive. Smart just confirmed the new version of the ForTwo electric version will make its debut at the 2016 Paris Auto Show in September. This time, every model in the Smart lineup… Continue Reading »

Mercedes vs. BMW: The Autonomous Car

In the autonomous car market, Mercedes continues to play a major role, though BMW is certainly making some recent moves. BMW’s upcoming iNext, an autonomous car, was recently given a 2021 release date, although BMW’s head of marketing and sales, Ian Robertson, suggested that the release date may be premature. The earlier-than-anticipated release date is likely a response to Mercedes’ growing authority in the young autonomous car market, with Mercedes having conducted autonomous car tests since 2012 and having released the stunning F 015 Luxury in Motion E-Class. The revolutionary 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class already provides a sneak peek at what autonomous driving may look like via its F 015 Luxury… Continue Reading »

F1: Hamilton holds off Vettel to win Canadian Grand Prix

Lewis Hamilton prevailed for the second straight race, taking a relatively hard-fought victory at the 2016 Canadian Grand Prix after fending off the vastly improved Ferrari of Sebastian Vettel. Vettel took the lead with a great start to the race from P3. He went past the two Mercedes, who had a bit of contact exiting turn 1, with Nico Rosberg forced to go to the grass and Hamilton aggressively defending the inside. Hamilton said he thought the start would be ‘a breeze’ after a perfect practice start. “But when it came around for real it felt like I was going nowhere, so I need to figure out what happened there,” Hamilton said. “I… Continue Reading »
