New Mercedes-Benz A-Class Ad Released

Mercedes-Benz UK recently launched a new advertisement for the current Mercedes-Benz A-Class through YouTube. The video shoot may not be too fancy but it sure does have a nice music as a background.

Mercedes-Benz Under Fire for Alleged Competition Violation

The UK’s Office of Fair Trading is probing Mercedes-Benz as well as five dealers in England, Wales, and Scotland that sell the Daimler marque’s trucks for alleged violations of competition law, occuring between 2007 and 2010.

The officer added that those involved will get “full opportunity to respond to our statement before we decide whether competition law has in fact been infringed.” Here’s more from the OFT statement: “The precise… Continue Reading »
