After writing the report about the possible integration of the Google Glass and Pebble Smartwatch to future Mercedes-Benz cars‘ infotainment system, I started asking myself these questions: “Are these really necessary? Aren’t the iPhone and iPad integration enough?” The introduction of the infotainment system in Mercedes cars, or other cars for that matter, have transformed our driving experience from something of a chore to an enjoyable, comfortable or luxurious time. The function that the system provides also help us make effective decisions as drivers of whether to take a turn, make a stop, proceed or take an alternate route during certain situations. However, it seems like many of us are… Continue Reading »

Over the years, it has served as a symbol of grace, performance, class, style and many other words that when combined together would all sum up to “legendary”.

Mercedes-Benz Commercial with Kate Upton Creates Controversy

Recently, CBS reported that the ad titled, “Kate Upton Washes the All-New Mercedes-Benz CLA in Slow Motion” has been drawing heat from some critics. One particular group who wasn’t impressed with it is the Parents Television Council. Their spokeswoman told Daily Mail UK that it was very racy and it was not even trying to sell the car. She further said that it connotes a very negative image to all women across the country. Now, what’s up with that? Personally, I don’t see any problem with the commercial. There are TV shows and other commercials in the prime time slot that are far more daring than that. There are also… Continue Reading »

Why Mercedes-Benz is Offering Lower-Priced Models

As stated in the previous report, Mercedes-Benz is now working on a new set of cars with a lower price range. The new CLA-class is set to be the company’s entry on the $30,000 price tag, which is now within the reach of more customers, especially with people at a younger age. The move by the German manufacturer is not surprising as the competition is now getting very tight on the luxury car market. Its competitors have already started offering more compact and sporty cars plus crossovers under the $30,000 and $40,000 price range. One notable competitor of Mercedes-Benz who began providing autos under the mentioned price tag is BMW,… Continue Reading »

As Peter Parcon reported, Evo conducted a drag race to see how the Ford Shelby GT500 Mustang fares against the Mercedes-Benz C63. Well, we all know that these two cars are entirely different from each other. Each has features that are unique from the other. However, there is one thing that both models brag about – that they are good at straight line acceleration. So, to put a rest to this debate, Evo pitted them against each other in a 0 to 1,000m drag race just to determine which one has the right to lay claim of the bragging rights. The Result (Spoiler Alert!) Here’s how the race turned out… Continue Reading »
