Mercedes-Benz Malaysia has launched the Mercedes-Benz GLA facelift in the country. As before, two non-AMG variants of the premium compact SUV are available here, a GLA 200 and a GLA 250 4 MATIC.

External revisions include a new front bumper, which with the exception of the AMG Line ditches the faux side intake cutouts and introduces fog lamps into the equation. There’s also a new grille design, which features rectangular elements within the slats, as well as a new, redesigned lower section…Read entire story

VIDEO: AMG – 50 years of Driving Performance

This year marks the 50th anniversary of AMG, the high performance division of Mercedes-Benz, and to mark the occasion, the company has released a video that provides a quick history lesson of the company. It all began in the 1960s, when Mercedes engineers – Hans Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher – worked on the 300 SE racing engine in the Daimler-Benz Development department. Unfortunately, the company decided to discontinue all motorsports activities soon after, but that didn’t stop Aufrecht and Melcher from continuing their work. Working out of Aufrecht’s house in Grossaspach, they spent their spare time fine tuning the performance of the…Read entire story

Internally dubbed the C213, C for Coupe as its sedan takes …Read entire story

Coast to coast in a Mercedes-Benz

A fleet of Mercedes-Benz four-wheel drive vehicles have successfully traversed the UK, from the east coast to the west coast, without the use of any open public roads. In what is believed to be the first ever journey completed off-road, the 12 vehicles – a mixture of GLE, GLS and G-Class models – made the 65-mile journey across the Scottish Highlands, over the course of two days. The 4x4s were all standard UK-specification cars, fitted with road-legal ‘mud tyres’, but with no modifications apart from the removal of side steps where fitted.
