Exceptional thrills and looks, but don't think that it's an everyday car.
Great looking, stuffed with tech, implausibly fast. A private jet for the road.
One of the most practical, sensible and desirable large estates.
Rivals are closer than ever, but S-Class remains our favourite luxo-barge. For now
Not the visual feast of its predecessor but much better to drive. A very convincing Benz.
If ever there was an estate to get the masses out of their X6s, this is it.
Merc shrinks the S-Class and turns it into an Estate. Yes, it's that good.
Mercedes nails it. The C-Cab is pleasant to drive but majors on al-fresco feel-good.
It’s not revolutionary, but in refocusing the dynamics to deliver a more relaxed driving experience, the All-Terrain is the most compelling E-Class estate out there.
Confident effort, free from old-school Stuttgart smugness, but not trying to ape the 3-series either.
Mercedes says this new A-Class is vital to its future fortunes. Phew, go the board: it's very good.
Mercedes has thrown everything it knows into the new E-Class. You can tell.
Every bit as convincing as the VW California. What is loses in the finer packaging details, it makes up for in quality and design.
The B-Class is now a genuine contender – if an expensive one – in the family hatch sector.
Mercedes almost undermines its own flagship with new E-Class Cabrio. Close one
A few niggles aside, this V-Class feels luxurious and worth the outlay. A fine, MPV/business-express.
Dramatic, fast and useable, with Mercedes’ thoroughness and AMG’s sporting genes.
An immensely fast and capable car to drive. But Golf R remains better to drive.
Has moved on from its predecessor and is now one of the best luxury SUVs on sale.
Seven seats and plenty of off-road ability, but many will find the smaller, cheaper Merc ML as good.
All the ingredients were there, Merc just had to wrap it in a gorgeous two-door body. Predictably brilliant.
A likeable thing. Go for a higher powertrain and it makes most sense.
