Mercedes-Benz has published images of the new A-Class hatchback and sedan models, together with spy shots of the B-Class, CLA, GLA and the GLB. But one thing we have not seen yet is the CLA Shooting Brake. While we’ve heard rumours that the swoopy wagon won’t be renewed, we think that the opposite is true.
In January 2017, Autocar heard from Mercedes’ sales and marketing boss, Britta Seeger, that the wagon will be getting a second generation version. There has been no retraction so we take that as a signal that we will soon see a new generation of the CLA SB. Nevertheless, we regret to say that the larger model, the CLS Shooting Brake, has been terminated due to low demand.
It is true that a lot of people have a thing for wagons, but the number of people who are shifting to crossovers and SUVs are significantly more, and really, automakers will just have to head towards the direction where their business will flourish. This is also why we should be glad that Mercedes-Benz is still giving the CLA Shooting Brake a second generation model.Read the entire article X-Tomi’s rendering of Mercedes-Benz A-Class Wagon is a stylish Shooting Brake
Whenever Mercedes-Benz officially unveils a new generation vehicle, it also creates a special edition model dedicated to the launch of the all-new model. Typically called as the Edition 1, this model is essentially a more lavish version of the newly launched next-gen model. Now, after unveiling the new generation of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class Sedan, the carmaker is introducing the 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Sedan Edition 1.
As a launch edition model, The 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Sedan Edition 1 is differentiated from its ordinary counterpart with a number of visual tweaks. In addition, compared to the ordinary 2019 A-Class Sedan, the Edition 1 will have more equipment included as standard. The A-Class Sedan Edition 1 Edition 1 is essentially derived from the AMG Line version. It features “Edition” badging on the front fenders to communicate to the world that it is not your typical A-Class Sedan.
Visual tweaks implemented on the exterior of the new 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Sedan Edition 1 include a number of copper accents. These copper accents include the pins on its “diamond” front grille as well as on its elegant 19-inch alloy wheels.Read the entire article Mercedes-Benz introduces 2019 A-Class Sedan Edition 1 with copper-like highlights
Mercedes-Benz is showing some love for the automotive customers in China by unveiling the long-wheelbase version of the A-Class at Auto China 2018, also known as the Beijing Motor Show. The very first A-Class L will be exclusively produced in China, with sales to commence in the country and in other parts of the world in the second half of the year.
While the fourth generation of the A-Class bound for Western Europe next month is the hatchback, the A-Class unveiled at Beijing is a notchback, and Mercedes-Benz is officially calling this compact car the A-Class L Sedan, with the “L” suffix referring to its long-wheelbase character.
This is because the wheelbase of the A-Class L Sedan (at 2,789 mm) is around 60 mm longer than that of the A-Class hatchback (at 2,729 mm), offering more knee room for rear passengers. In terms of dimensions, the new A-Class L Sedan measures 4,609 in length, 1,796 mm in width and 1,460 mm in height. It offers up to 420 liters of boot space.Read the entire article Mercedes-Benz A-Class L Sedan unveiled at 2018 Beijing Motor Show
Swedish carmaker Volvo Cars has taken the wraps off its latest creation – a new midsize premium wagon (estate) dubbed as the new 2019 Volvo V60. Volvo intended the V60 to be a family all-rounder, underscoring its position as a carmaker with the tradition of producing good-looking yet practical cars.
To strongly deliver the message that the new V60 is a family all-rounder, Volvo went for an unconventional yet persuasive manner of introduction. Instead of unveiling the new V60 at a motor show or at an auto-related event, the carmaker revealed the new premium wagon at the driveway of an up-market villa in the suburbs of Stockholm, Sweden. It was driven into the driveway – where it really belongs -- by Lex Kerssemakers, Volvo’s senior vice president for the Europe, Middle East, Asia region. This way, Volvo was able to send a clear message that the new V60 is designed to cater to the needs and wants of modern family.
As introduced, the new V60 is underpinned by Volvo’s Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) platform that also underpins the new XC60 and four top-of-the-line 90 Series cars. So far, the V60 is the smallest and lightest vehicle to be underpinned by this platform.Read the entire article Elegant practicality defines newly unveiled 2019 Volvo V60 midsize premium wagon
Mercedes-Benz has not unveiled the A-Class Sedan yet, though we think that we will see it very soon because the automaker has already revealed the hatchback, and it should not be too long for the saloon to come out this year.
The Germany based automaker displayed a concept at the 2017 Shanghai Auto Show. But we have to agree that this model, in Shooting Brake guise, will be absolutely stunning. Aksyonov Nikita has already done the work for us. He released images of an A Class Shooting Brake that looks ready to enter production.
In 2017, the automaker actually made it clear that they will draw a distinct line between the A-Class sedan and the next generation CLA by giving the CLA a fastback styling. The A-Class is going to be the model the CLA will be based on, and will then use the front wheel drive platform of the A-Class, though it will adapt its own distinct style. This will then be placed above the A-Class Sedan in Mercedes’ lineup.Read the entire article Artist creates Shooting Brake version of 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class
Recently, Mercedes-Benz announced that their new compact family will have at least 8 members. That’s a lot to swallow but we never really considered the A-Class would be associated with the Maybach sub brand.
But apparently, its inclusion makes sense to one artist, and that is Aksyonov Nikita. He rendered something that he calls the Mercedes Maybach A-Class. Of course, he took inspiration from no other than other Maybachs in Mercedes’ range - and by looking at his creation, all we can say is that it looks interesting.
The most obvious element in this rendering is the paint. We think that Nikita got this shade of blue from the Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet Concept, except that it has a matte finish instead. Moreover, its front grille as well as the eye catching multi-spoke rims seem to also come from the same model.Read the entire article Mercedes-Maybach A-Class rendered... because why not!
It wasn’t that long ago when we first saw Mercedes-Benz’ newest A-Class when it made its world debut. And already, X-Tomi Design has already reworked it as a convertible. Now, the rendered version only comes with two doors instead of four, while losing its roof - turning it into a trendy four-seat drop top.
Right now, we believe that Mercedes-Benz has no intentions of launching a convertible model on its compact, front wheel drive platform. But still, its lineup will offer an array of different things. This includes an A-Class that would offer customers a five door hatchback, while the A-Class Sedan looks similar, but only comes with four doors and a trunk.
Aside from those, Mercedes Benz offers the CLA-Class for customers who look for a four door model with more style. There is also the more utilitarian B-Class hatchback for the more adventurous people. And let us not forget the GLA-Class, which is a coupe inspired crossover, and the GLB-Class that is a boxier SUV.Read the entire article X-Tomi reimagines the 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class as a convertible
Mercedes-Benz recently announced their newest A-Class model, and we think that the upgraded hatchback looks amazing beside the rest of its siblings, plus the fact that it now highlights the new MBUX infotainment technology that just makes it extra modern - in fact, way more than the rest of the models. With all that good news, there is one thing that might disappoint you, and it is the fact that there will not be a hatchback version of the A-Class in the United States - sorry to burst your bubble.
This is because Mercedes plans to only sell the five door A-Class in markets outside of the United States, while the American market only gets the four-door model. In fact, Canadians will even be able to get their hands on the hatchback configuration. This was confirmed by Mercedes Benz Canada CEO, Brian D. Fulton, during his interview with The Truth About Cars.
Fulton supported his statement by saying that their US colleagues already confirmed the idea that only the sedan version of the A-Class will be sold in North America. Meanwhile, Canada will get both versions: the sedan and the hatchback. More details on the sedan will be released later this year.Read the entire article 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class sedan will come to the US, but don’t expect the hatchback variant
The 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class, aka the fourth generation A-Class, has arrived. And some of the few things it boasts would be the technology upgrade, three new engines, and a slight increase in size. Overall, the hatchback gets a handful of cool features that makes it stand out from other models, while receiving physical improvements that turn it into a more stylish hatchback.
Firstly, its wheelbase has grown by 1.2 inches (30 millimeters), while its track is half an inch (14mm) wider. Because size has been increased, there will be more space for passenger, and I mean more shoulder and head room. Plus an increase in cargo capacity where they can put larger suitcases in. Passengers will also benefit from a more comfortable ride, thanks to the revised suspension. There are also optional active dampers that can be adjusted depending on the driving mode you choose.
Its new exterior, especially up front, has been made to look more angular. It also looks more aggressive because of the new downward sloping nose and a pair of tilted headlights. Customers can then upgrade to a set of Multibeam LED headlights, with 18 individually actuated LEDs.Read the entire article 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class reveals its new design
The 2018 Consumer Electric Show is full of exciting new technology for everyone, including the automotive industry. One of the most anticipated is the unveiling of the Linux-based MBUX that promised to bring a “revolution in the cockpit.”
Expect to see this infotainment system in upcoming compact models starting off with the next-generation Mercedes-Benz A-Class hatchback. A camouflaged near-production prototype of the five-door model is currently in Las Vegas at the CES. This won’t be offered in the United States but then, the sedan version will make it to the country soon enough.
We will be giving you all the details you will need to know about the infotainment system, starting off with the seven-inch instrument cluster with a touchscreen of the same size that can be found on the A-Class. For the higher trim, the touchscreen gets an upgrade to a 10.25-inch version. Meanwhile, the top trim gets a dual 10.25 inch setup.Read the entire article Mercedes-Benz’ new MBUX infotainment system will debut in next-gen A-Class
Before the W177 goes on sale in 2018, Mercedes-Benz had to go back to the drawing board to check on the A Class’ interior. This is because the new model will have a completely different cabin compared to the current model. One of the most noticeable changes would be the dual display layout that has been received from the range topping model of the range. Instead of being fully incorporated into the dashboard, the screens will be sticking out, so it will be quite different from the E-Class.
As you can see in the images, there is a pair of 12.3-inch wide displays in the top of the range 2018 Mercedes-Benz A-Class. The base model, on the other hand, will have a dual 7-inch setup, while the mid-range version will come with a 7-inch instrument cluster and a 12.3 inch infotainment system. There is a total of 64 ambient LED lighting colours that passengers can choose from, and that is a huge jump from the outgoing model that only had 12 hues.
You have already seen the steering wheel from before and that is because it had been sourced from the S-Class to enable Mercedes’ entry-level model for a more upscale feel. Other features that were carried over from the E-Class Coupe and Cabriolet include the nifty turbine-style air vents.Read the entire article 2018 Mercedes-Benz A-Class shows off its premium high-tech interior
Genesis, Hyundai’s luxury brand, recently launched the 2018 Genesis G70 to go against German models like the BMW 3 Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class and Audi A4. But while its rivals offer their models in wagon variants, Hyundai doesn’t have a G70 wagon variant. This is because some customers just prefer to have a little more space for their junk. To keep up with the competition, Genesis might need to have a long roof variant of its own. But how would it look? X-Tomi Design helps us imagine it.
The current G70’s design features a flowing roof that goes all the way to its sporty rear, including an integrated upward kink towards the edge of the trunk. X-Tomi Design’s rendering retains its original shape, but stretches it a little creating a longer line and some extra space in the rear. The rear end now gets a spoiler to keep its performance-oriented appearance.
At this moment, Genesis offers three options of the G70 at launch in South Korea, and they have not given any details regarding the US-spec model. The Korean version’s base trim has a 2.0 liter turbocharged four-cylinder that carries out 248 horsepower (185 kilowatts), and with the Performance Package, 251 horsepower (187 kilowatts) and 260 pound-feet (353 Newton-metres) of torque. Another option is the 2.2 liter four-cylinder turbodiesel with 200 horsepower (149 kilowatts). And for the range topping trim, you’ll get a 3.3 liter turbocharged V6 that produces as much as 365 horsepower (272 kilowatts) and 376 pound-feet (510 Nm) of torque. Customers can either opt for a rear wheel drive or an all-wheel drive.Read the entire article X-Tomi Design renders the 2018 Genesis G70 as a wagon
What can we expect from Mercedes-Benz for this year and the next? It seems all matters have been laid out with luxury carmaker’s vehicle lineup for 2017 and 2018. As revealed by parent Daimler AG in its second-quarter interim report, a roadmap for the Mercedes’ product offensive includes interesting new vehicles up for release in 2018.
The road map included in Daimler’s second-quarter 2017 interim report details Mercedes’ product offensive starting 2017 through next year. Some of these products were already presented or are set to be introduced in the period January to September 2017 -- such the E-Class Coupe and the E-Class (March 2017), GLA facelift and AMG GT Roadster (April 2017), S-Class Facelift (July 2017) and the E-Class Cabriolet (September 2017). The remaining product to be introduced in the remaining months of 2017 is the Mercedes X-Class pickup truck, which is bound for release in November or December 2017, according to this product offensive roadmap.
Mercedes’ product offensive in 2018 will be headlined by the S-Class Coupe Facelift and the S-Class Cabriolet Facelift, both of which were recently unveiled at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. Bound to arrive in the first months of 2018, the S-Class Coupe facelift and the S-Class Cabriolet facelift features -- more or less -- the same tweaks made on the 2018 S-Class Saloon facelift that was introduced in July 2017. These include new steering wheels and new OLED rear lamps.Read the entire article Mercedes-Benz’s 2018 product offensive includes CLS Coupe, A-Class Sedan and GLC long-wheelbase
While the reveal of the 2018 BMW M5 (F90) has been met with plenty of applause, there are a number of people who want a much wider trunk space from this model on top of the hot sedan's updated look, more powerful engine and new performance features like shifting from an all-wheel to a rear-wheel drive.
But since the Bavarian company has not come up with that yet, an artist from X-Tomi Design has rendered one. And what was created looks like a facelifted M5 Touring. It was back in 2007 when BMW last offered a Touring version of the M5, when it was released with the E61. Also, back then the company did not produce that many units of the M5 Touring, and the variant did not even reach US soil. Since then, BMW has skipped the touring trim in the last generation F10.
This is why we think that this rendering should encourage BMW to produce a Touring variant, which would make a lot of customers more satisfied. Under the hood of the 2018 M5 is a 4.4 liter V8 that produces as much as 600 horsepower (447 kilowatts) and 553 pound-feet (750 Newton metres) of torque. This powertrain lets it hit 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in just 3.4 seconds, before reaching its top speed of 155 miles per hour (250 kilometers per hour). This can even be maxed out to 189 mph (305 mph) sans the limiter.Read the entire article 2018 BMW M5 (F90) Touring with 600 hp rendered for your pleasure
The mere thought of a Rolls-Royce wagon is quite silly. But hey, it didn’t take us long before we realized that it isn’t that hideous after seeing X-Tomi Design’s latest spinoff.
The artist derived its digital rendition from the eighth generation Phantom following the limousine’s official launch in London. Rolls-Royce did come up with wagons way back when there were no SUVs yet. Do you remember the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud from 1959 that the coachbuilder converted into a wagon? There used to be four of them. As a matter of fact, the British automaker did those conversions together with H.J Mulliner and so the idea of a Rolls-Royce wagon isn’t totally new.
“Project Cullinan” instead is now in the works and will be the first sports utility vehicle to be offered officially by the luxury carmaker. Strangely, while Rolls-Royce’s SUV prototype was being developed, several spy shots have actually revealed some close resemblances to the all-new Phantom. It only seems logical since the dimensions of the current Phantom is virtually the same as a truck. The difference is that the SUV gets to sit on a taller platform.Read the entire article 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom Wagon rendering, does not look bad at all
Mercedes-Benz is not the company you expect to produce slow poke vehicles, and if you want more power boost then they got you covered with an AMG option. The team of tuners at Brabus takes these Mercedes-Benz releases and turns them into bolder, madder creations. Now the notable tuner has revealed its latest creation named the Brabus E-Class Wagon which is based on the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate.
Clients who are searching for an even edgier style can opt for new wheel designs that measure between 18 and 21 in diameter. The larger ones measure 9 inches in front and 10.5 inches at the back.
These wheels were safety-certified for the S 213 model series by independent German Technical Inspection Association TUV. Drivers can also opt to make the big wheels look more attractive by choosing Brabus' suspension turning alternative.Read the entire article Brabus is back with a Mercedes-Benz E-Class Wagon power upgrade
Mercedes-Benz really does love to tease, and now, we know why. It is because the top honcho of parent Daimler AG, chairman Dieter Zetsche, loves to do so. In fact, Zetsche was recently featured on a post at Daimler’s LinkedIn business network account, taking a selfie with a camouflaged version of the 2018 Mercedes-Benz A-Class. Yes, the 2018 Mercedes A-Class is finally coming and it is now being test-driven – as well as teased -- by Zetsche himself.
Teasing a new product isn’t actually the main part of Zetche’s job at Daimler. However, he can do as he pleases. Nonetheless, as Daimler’s chairman noted, it is part of his job to test drive new products like the next generation of the A Class. It is his job to make sure that a new model is good enough to pass the careful eyes of the company’s management team, and is ready for series production.
Confirming that the car that he was taking a picture with is the 2018 A-Class in a camouflaged form, Zetsche said in a LinkedIn post that Mercedes will be taking the wraps off the camouflaged A-Class in 2018. He called the new A-Class as special since it is a symbol of the rejuvenation of the Mercedes brand, which started when it introduced the current generation in 2012. He noted that since 2012, Mercedes has sold more than two million units of the A-Class.Read the entire article Daimler chairman takes selfie with camouflaged Mercedes-Benz A-Class
The 2017 Shanghai Auto Show was dominated mainly by crossovers but that doesn't stop Mercedes-Benz from stepping out with a cool new update for the S-Class. During the event, the German automaker has also showed off the much anticipated Concept A Sedan, its first ever small four-door A-Class model with a coupe-like rear end.
If there’s more, Gorden Wagener, Mercedes’ head of design hinted about its latest design language during last week’s exhibit. In a statement, Wagener said that the design era of creases has finally reached its end. With that being the case, we’ll be seeing lesser lines and more rounded surfaces on their upcoming models. Sounds very promising isn't it?
Mercedes-Benz as we know, is looking to expand its current compact car lineup following the successful launch of the GLA, the CLA Shooting Brake, the CLA, the B-Class and the A-Class models. If ever, the new Concept A will be Mercedes Benz’s answer to Audi’s A3 Sedan and the BMW 1 Series. Taking its cues from the latest AMG GTs, the Concept A is also seen to represent Mercedes’ upcoming smaller car range. Still, how about a convertible version of the A-Class? This was rendered by Aksyonov Nikita and honestly, it looks amazing.Read the entire article Mercedes-Benz Concept A-Class rendered as a cabriolet
Mercedes-Benz has unveiled at the Shanghai Auto Show a new design study of the next compact premium sedan – the new Mercedes-Benz Concept A Sedan.
This new concept shows us a glimpse of Mercedes’ next generation of compact cars. In addition, the new Concept A Sedan presents a possible new body type for the carmaker’s compact vehicles.
This new design study is intended to continue the success story of the brand’s current compact vehicle generation. Since its introduction in 2012, the current generation of Mercedes’ compact vehicles has resulted to over 2 million sales, and has been hitting new sales records ever since.Read the entire article Mercedes-Benz Concept A Sedan unveiled at the 2017 Shanghai Auto Show
Even as Volkswagen has just started taking orders for the VW Arteon in Germany. Arteon fanatics are already asking for a wagon variant of the Passat sedan. Some people actually prefer a long-roof version of it. It’s an awesome idea, if you ask us.
Luckily, the company admitted that they have thought of it already. In fact, as early as now, the people from Wolfsburg are referring to it as a “shooting brake”, but decided to just call it a wagon instead. Maybe so it doesn’t sound too old-school.
Don’t lose hope, guys! Elmar-Marius Licharz, Head of VW’s Full-Size Product Lines, did say that it is possible. However, from a business perspective, it will have to depend on the current Arteon’s success. If the sedan version becomes a hit, and receives a stamp of approval, then they will add the wagon to extend the lineup. So if you are reading this, then show some support if you want the wagon variant.Read the entire article This render of a VW Arteon wagon creates buzz for new variant
