Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 4MATIC+ brought thrills at 2019 Geneva Motor Show

Mercedes-AMG won't be so silent about its performance aspirations as the high-performance arm of Mercedes-Benz unveiled another hardcore model at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. This time around, the performance division is giving more oomph to the new generation of the Mercedes GLE by taking the veil off the new Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 4MATIC+.

Even at the first look, the AMG GLE 53 4MATIC+ is easily identifiable as an AMG offering thanks to a number of elements that only its performance vehicles don. The most glaring of these elements is the AMG-specific radiator grille, which comes with 15 vertical chromed strips. Centrally located on the dynamic-looking Panamericana grille is the Mercedes star in the double ring.

Furthermore, the new AMG GLE 53 4MATIC+ features narrow headlamps, the A-Wing with silver-like trim as well as silver chrome-plated.

Mercedes-Benz refreshes its GLC SUV after nearly four years

The 2019 Geneva Motor Show is serving as a witness to the unveiling of the Mercedes-Benz GLC Facelift. It has already been nearly four years since Mercedes-Benz launched the GLC in autumn 2015, and now the German premium carmaker is refreshing one of its beloved SUV with some revisions on its looks and better technological features.

On the exterior, the updated Mercedes-Benz GLC features chrome elements running from the front to the rear end, a heavily contoured chrome radiator grille and a front fascia with three small rectangular sections.

Mercedes-Benz unveils X350d 4Matic X-Class at 2018 Geneva Motor Show

Mercedes-Benz is set to unveil the new X350d 4Matic X-Class at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. It was back in July 2017 when the brand first premiered its pickup which utilizes the chassis, as well as certain body panels, of the Nissan Navara. However this version is set out to be the most expensive one yet.

This new model has a six-cylinder engine and the 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive. Specifically, the new X-Class is fitted with the turbodiesel 3.0-liter V6 engine that benefits from the common-rail direct injection. With this, it can deliver an output of 258 hp (190 kW) with top torque measured to be 406 lb.-ft. (550 Nm) and available at 1,4000 rpm and up to 3,200 rpm.

As a comparison, the highest specification of the biturbodiesel V6 engine fitted in the Volkswagen Amarok is only able to deliver 224 hp (165 kW). In addition, while the amount of torque is similar, it is available beginning 1,5000 rpm. Paired to this engine is the 7G-TRONIC PLUS automatic transmission having steering wheel shift paddles as well as the ECO start/stop function. This transmission has been modified to allow it to transmit 60% of the available torque to the vehicle's rear wheels to result in a rear-based configuration, highly suitable especially for a pickup truck.

The Mercedes-AMG S63 – both in its sedan and coupe guises -- is a high-performance luxurious ride that offers 612 PS (603 hp or 450 kW) of max output and 900 Nm of peak torque. These massive numbers are already considered as the higher levels of performance, but people at Brabus believe more can be done to further increase these figures. Turning belief to reality, the well-known German tuning company created the new Brabus 800 Sedan and Coupe as based on the AMG S 63 4Matic+.

As its name indicates, the Brabus 800 Sedan and Coupe based on the AMG S 63 boasts of 800 PS (789 hp or 588 kW) of max output from the heavily upgraded AMG 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine. The peak torque level has already been boosted from 900 Nm to 1,000 Nm (737 lb.-ft.) as available at just 3,600 rpm. An untouched AMG 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine is already powerful enough to send the AMG S 63 – both sedan and coupe versions -- sprinting from nil to 100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds and achieving a top speed of 250 km/h.

But the upgraded eight-cylinder mill with its boosted power allows the Brabus 800 Sedan and Coupe based on the AMG S 63 to dash from true zero to 100 km/h in just 3.1 seconds, which is 0.4 seconds quicker than their regular counterparts. As for the top speed of the Brabus 800 Sedan and Coupe based on the AMG S 63, these tuned units could go as fast as 300 km/h (186 mph). For those seeking a faster unit, Brabus is currently working hard to create some tweaks to allow the Brabus 800 Sedan and Coupe based on the AMG S 63 to go a lot faster.

Mercedes-AMG GT fans and enthusiasts got really excited when the carmaker unveiled the AMG GT Concept a year ago in Geneva. This four-door coupe concept was meant to preview a production version that blends a coupe design with sedan practicality. A year later at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, the performance brand has taken the wraps off that production model – the new 2019 Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe.

The excitement buildup before the big reveal was real, and the new AMG GT 4-Door Coupe didn’t disappoint. It was the model that people had been expecting but it managed to go beyond expectations. For instance, the new AMG GT 4-Door Coupe looks nearly the same as the AMG GT Concept. There are some differences in styling, of course, but in the end, the resemblance isn't surprising, as both models follow the design philosophy of Sensual Purity.

AMG reinterpreted the striking proportions and muscular body, as well as the sensuous shapes and convex surfaces of AMG GT Coupe to a stunning effect fitting for a four-door version of the high-performance car. Just like other members of the AMG GT family, the AMG 4-Door Coupe features an AMG-specific grille, Shark Nose, slim Multibeam LED headlamps and a front bumper with a Jet Wing. It also borrows an element from AMG GT R – the Airpanel, which is basically composed of radiator shutters in front of the center cooling air inlet. It also boasts of a flowing silhouette defined by a lowered greenhouse, frameless side windows, a windscreen inclined to the rear, tailored upper contours, broad shoulders and pronounced rear wheel arches. On the rear, the AMG 4-Door Coupe is marked by slim LED taillamps and an extendable rear spoiler.

The Mercedes-Maybach S-Class has been known to be more than just luxurious as it is also prestigious and exclusive. Now, the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class has been updated to feature a distinct and revolutionary lighting technology, as unveiled to the global public at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.

Image projection is not a new concept in cars. So-called heads up display (HUD) uses light to project images onto the windshield just in front of the driver. The projected image by the HUD system features various information considered as relevant to the functions of the vehicle. This lighting concept is taken into another level by the groundbreaking revolutionary headlamp technology Digital Light. While other headlamps just illuminate the road ahead, Digital Light also projects certain symbols – in HD quality -- directly in the field of vision, serving as a visual aid to the driver of a Mercedes-Maybach S-Class. Likewise, the projected symbols serve as communication with the surroundings.

This marks the first time that Digital Light is employed in the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class. Digital Light will be soon entering small series production in the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class, with only a select few of its fleet customers taking delivery of the symbol-project luxurious flagship in the first half of 2018.

When Mercedes-Benz gave the regular C-Class models a soft update for the 2019 model year, it was already expected that it would do the same to the high-performance C-Class units. Now, the Mercedes-AMG C43 is getting a soft update – both in terms of looks and power – when it arrives as a 2019 model year.

Offered in Saloon and Estate variants, the new Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC is considered as the entry-level high-performance C-Class model. Thus, it is only logical that it receives certain updates. For starters, the Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC Saloon and Estate are provided with new distinguishing visual elements like the AMG radiator grille with twin louver in matt iridium silver, as well as the dynamically sculpted front apron with extra flics. The front apron features side air curtains that help channels front airstream. The trim details on the front splitter as well as the cross fin attachment now don a silver chrome finish.

On the rear end, the Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC Saloon and Estate now feature a pair of round (instead of angular) twin tailpipe trim elements as finished high-gloss chrome. The rear end is also defined by a rear apron with side air curtain appearance, a more expressive diffuser as well as body-colored spoiler lip on the boot lid.

The smallest wagon in the Mercedes-Benz family is being treated to a special version that delivers extra levels of elegance and style both on the exterior and the interior. The German premium carmaker will be unveiling this new special compact model series, the Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake Night Edition, at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.

Mercedes’ new CLA Shooting Brake Night Edition is basically a CLA Shooting Brake that is laden with exterior effects from the carmaker’s AMG performance brand as well as with a rich interior derived from the Urban Line, as marked by black and white accents. Equipped with a DCT transmission, the CLA Shooting Brake 200 d Night Edition consumes 3.9 liters of fuel per 100 km (combined) and emits 101 grams of carbon dioxide per km (combined).

With its introduction at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, the new CLA Shooting Brake Night Edition marks the start of a strong barrage of Night Edition version for Mercedes’ compact class models, with AMG also offering its own Night Edition models for the compact segment. Aside from the CLA Shooting Brake, the Mercedes CLA, GLA and B-Class will also be receiving Night Edition models of their own. Interestingly, a brighter version of the Night Edition will also be launched in the future – the Night Edition Starlight.

The outgoing Mercedes-Benz C Class began production in the year 2015. And even though it may not be that old, the automaker decided to already give it a mid-cycle refresh and finally, it has arrived with the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedan. The automaker recently just took the camouflage off the vehicle, before setting out to make its debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show in March.

When looking at the new C-Class sedan from the outside, changes seem to be very subtle but noticeable. For instance, the single bar diamond grille from the AMG Line now comes standard, surrounded by new LED headlights that are now standard as well.

The front fascia looks tweaked with horizontal fins in the side air intakes. The rear fascia has also been redesigned, now with an additional diffuser. The headlights and the taillights also got a minor design change and an LED upgrade, and the sedan now sits on a set of 17 inch twin five spoke wheels that are standard. Customers will now have more paint options like Mojave Silver Metallic and Emerald Green Metallic.

For those of you who have extremely high standards, the Mercedes-Benz S Class may not be opulent enough for you. And this is the reason why the automaker decided to make the high class sedan a notch more luxurious with its Maybach variant. This model will make an appearance at next month’s 2018 Geneva Motor Show, before it goes on sale in the United States in the late summer of 2018.

What makes this variant stand out from its siblings would be the new grille that uses vertical slats, instead of the regular horizontal ones. On the lower fascia, you will find a metallic trim that gives the vehicle a flashier look.

The most prominent change here, however, would be the car’s profile. The 2019 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class now measures 215 inches (5,461 millimeters) long, while riding on a 132.5 inch (3,365.5 mm) wheelbase. This is a whopping 10 inches (254mm) increase than even the long-wheelbase S-Class Sedan. Having said that, passengers should have a lot more leg room in the cabin.

It was a few weeks ago that Mercedes-Benz revealed the G-Class SUV to the public. And as early as now, they have already surprised us with the more powerful AMG version of it. It is definitely what we expected it to be - except it came earlier than we anticipated. Check out this 2019 Mercedes-AMG G63. Despite its huge, boxy size, this SUV is capable of accelerating to 60 miles per hour in just 4.4 seconds. That makes it almost a full second faster than its high-performance predecessor.

You are probably wondering where all this power comes from. Well, apart from the obvious, which is the ample AMG supplied power boost, the same 4.0 liter biturbo V8 has been tweaked so it can carry out 577 horsepower (430 kilowatts). That definitely sounds like a lot despite the fact that it is actually 14 horsepower (10 kilowatts) more than the G63. But aside from that, it is also because the G63 also lost a significant amount of weight, and I mean 375 pounds (174 kilograms) to be specific.

Moreover, the G63 also has a whopping 627 pound-feet (850 Newton-metres) of torque, making it 100 more than the GT R and 60 more than its predecessor. Can you just imagine this boxy G-Class SUV outrunning many hardcore sport sedans out on the streets?

After weeks or months of speculating about the name of the new Mercedes-Benz performance sedan, it’s finally revealed. The four door vehicle that will make its premiere at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show next month is the Mercedes-AMG GT Coupe. Even as the teaser images show the model in camouflage, these are still much clearer than previous ones.

At the same time that the company released this statement, it also published three photos of the four-door. Like I said earlier, the sedan’s appearance is camouflaged like that of earlier test mules. Nevertheless, we can make out several of its features.

The Mercedes-AMG GT Coupe got most of its design elements from the 2017 Mercedes AMG Concept that we saw last year wearing a metallic red coat. Both vehicles have the similar wide grille and vertical slats with a trio of large inlets in the front fascia. There is also a steep A pillar that leads back to a flowing roof and rounded tail. In the rear, there is an active spoiler that can deploy from the back. Overall, its design makes it look both sporty and sleek.

Brabus is now showing off its impressive vehicle lineup at the ongoing motor show in Switzerland. The German tuning brand has offered its own take on a Maserati Levante, a Mercedes-Benz V-Class, a Smart Fortwo and Mercedes’ fancy G-Wagon.

The Mercedes-Benz G500 4x4² is unmistakably hardcore but Brabus certainly knows how to make it even more radical. Currently attracting crowds at its premiere at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, Brabus takes the center stage with its new 550 Adventure 4x4².

The radical-looking off-roader is made even more sinister, thanks to Brabus’ aftermarket body kit. This highly modified truck now comes with a more extreme bumper guard at the front, a new hood scoop, a more aggressive underride guard, additional lighting plus a newly installed winch for emergency.

Brabus will be hitting this week’s most happening auto show with a powerful 641bhp C63 Cabrio. The after-market tuning company has earned its reputation in the industry for having tuned Mercedes-Benz cars for four decades. Its latest project, the new Brabus 650 Cabrio, is based on the Mercedes-AMG C63 S Cabriolet.

The drop-top 650 Cabrio receives a powerful boost of up to 138 hp –resulting in its highly impressive 650 horsepower and 604 pound feet of torque. Brabus modified its standard 4.0-liter twin turbo V8 engine so it can accelerate from 0- 62 mph in just 3.7 seconds before reaching a top speed of 200 miles per hour. The conversion consists of Brabus PowerXtra B40S and 2 turbochargers with larger compressor just to name a few.

Normally, a standard Mercedes-AMG C63 S Cabriolet comes with 502 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. The hefty amount of powerful boost wouldn’t be possible if not for the recalibrated electronics and new turbochargers fitted under its hood. To do this, Brabus replaced the factory specified AMG turbocharger with its own turbo charger units. The tuning house has also upgraded the Mercedes-AMG C 63 Cabriolet’s ECU and got rid of the 155 mph limiter to allow its 650 hp run up to 200 miles per hour at top speed.

Could we expect a new premium performance vehicle from Mercedes-AMG that would compete directly against the Porsche Panamera? If Autocar’s sources are to be believed, Mercedes-AMG would soon unveil a concept version of the much rumored Mercedes-AMG GT4 performance luxury four-door sedan at the upcoming 2017 Geneva Motor Show in March.

This design study will preview Mercedes-AMG’s new GT4 offering, serving as the main attraction at Mercedes-Benz’s booth at the Geneva Motor Show. The unveiling of the AMG GT4 Concept would form part of the German premium carmaker’s 50th anniversary celebration this year. According to Autocar, the production version of the AMG GT4 would be launched next year (2018) in Europe. It would be pitted against the likes of the Panamera of Porsche, the 6 Series Gran Coupé of BMW and the A7 and RS7 of Audi. Once it achieves its final form, the AMG GT4 would become the performance brand’s third dedicated series production model line, after the AMG SLS and the current AMG GT. It is said to be the replacement for the CLS Shooting Brake.

Tobias Moers, chief executive of Mercedes-AMG, cryptically indicated in January that the Mercedes-AMG GT4 could be really coming. Moers was answering several questions from automotive Web site Motoring when he gave an ambiguous declaration about the performance sedan – saying that speculations of an upcoming AMG GT4 are not necessarily wrong. This tells us that at least some of the rumored details are true.

German premium carmaker Mercedes-Benz will commence deliveries of its new 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe in March, after introducing this luxury sports car in December 2016 and unveiling it at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show in January. But just as Mercedes starts deliveries of the E-Class Coupe, it will also unfurl the fifth and final member of the range at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show in March – the new open-air 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet.

Currently, the new E-Class family is made up of four models – Sedan (including China-only long wheelbase saloon), Estate, Coupe and All-Terrain. The addition of the Cabriolet model will finally complete Mercedes’ E-Class lineup when it is formally unveiled for the global public at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.

The 2018 Mercedes E-Class Cabriolet should look similar to the coupe version. In fact, this drop-top model is the lone 2018 Mercedes E-Class Coupe without the hard roof, plus it comes with a number of modifications to accommodate the drop-top. In this setup, the 2018 Mercedes E-Class Cabriolet allows drivers and passengers to enjoy open-air driving and riding experience.
