  • Stuttgart, Sep 15, 2020 - What characterises a dream car by Mercedes-Benz? Is it the design? A powerful drive and high driving dynamics? Or the shine of the Mercedes star? The answer is: all three factors are important, others also play their part, in varying levels of importance – and, of course, subjective perspectives.

  • Stuttgart, Sep 2, 2020 - What makes a vehicle the epitome of the automobile in its time? The Mercedes-Benz S-Class and its predecessors have been answering this question since the early years of the brand’s history. The tradition of luxury models from Mercedes-Benz has continued uninterrupted since 1951, but executive and luxury class saloons had already been firmly established in the model range long before the Second World War.

  • Apr 29, 2016 - The Mercedes-Benz E-Class and its predecessors are representatives of a unique tradition in the automotive luxury and intermediate categories. The technical innovativeness and trendsetting design behind the successful model series from Mercedes-Benz have made their mark on this whole segment. The latest generation, the 213 model series launched in 2016, paves the way for the future – along with a wide range of systems that play their part in accident prevention and the possibility of semi-autonomous driving.

  • Stuttgart, Jul 15, 2011 - The desire for vehicles with a compact exterior and at the same time the ‘inner values’ of a high-quality interior has been a constant underlying theme throughout the entire history of Daimler AG and its predecessors. The Stuttgart-based company – whose own domains have traditionally comprised product segments occupied by the luxury and upper mid-range classes – has also enjoyed repeated success in applying its innovation and development expertise in the lower range segments for more compact, lower-priced vehicles too.

  • Stuttgart, Feb 12, 2010 - In 1934 Mercedes-Benz braved public opinion with a revolutionary vehicle concept, the 130 model. It was a bold move, since never in brand history had there been a production rear-engine car. Indeed, the entire history of the automobile, which by then spanned almost half a century, had seen very few rear-engine vehicles.

  • Stuttgart, Sep 24, 2008 - Mercedes-Benz can look back on a long tradition of exclusive limousines bearing the name Pullman. In modern usage the term typically denotes a representational vehicle with highly luxurious equipment, extra-long wheelbase and two rows of seats in the rear – the individual seats are generally arranged as two pairs of “vis-à-vis” (facing) seats.

  • Stuttgart, Sep 23, 2008 - Special protection vehicles give a completely new dimension to the concept of vehicle security: while components for active and passive safety help avoid accidents and protect the occupants if a collision occurs, vehicles with special protection feature armor plating and other additional items of equipment to protect against armed attacks.
