One thing Mercedes' V-Class MPV certainly isn't short of is space. Jonathan Crouch reports on the revised version.
In second generation form, the four-door CLA Coupe continues to inject an extra dose of style into Mercedes' compact model line-up. Jonathan Crouch reports
For such a big vehicle, the Mercedes GLS carries a surprisingly low profile. Jonathan Crouch takes a look at the second generation model.
Ferrying the family around isn't something most of us especially look forward to doing. But Mercedes doesn't see why it shouldn't be. In this second generation B-Class, Stuttgart made great strides in engine efficiency, safety and hi-tech driving aids. Its real importance though, lay in proving its maker capable of delivering Mercedes quality to the mainstream,
True, it isn't perfect. Whether the used alternatives you're considering are plusher versions of either family hatchbacks or five-seater mini-MPVs, you'll find sharper-handling rivals out there from this period - and many that can offer more rear seat space. We have a feeling though, that few potential buyers of this Mercedes will be put off by these issues. These people will recognise in this second generation model the car the B-Class should always been. A car that nobody but Mercedes could have built.
The improvements made to this E-Class Coupe - the more efficient engines, the smart looks, the extra equipment - have certainly been welcome but the essence of its appeal has changed very little. As you'd expect, it delivers the powerful, luxurious, Grand Touring sports coupe brand values you'd expect from a £40,000-£65,000 luxury Mercedes coupe.
In driving it, in owning it, you feel another more elegant level away from owners of the brand's less aspirational C-Class Coupe. And a cut above the sporting two-door models that car competes with, coupes like BMW's 4 Series and Audi's A5. There's a maturity and a class here that these sportier rivals lack. They could never be considered as a wise and cost-efficient alternative to spending £30,000-£40,000 more on a Maserati GranTurismo or BMW 6 Series. This Mercedes could be. And that about sums it up.
And overall? Well it's true that there are sportier, more dynamic models of this kind you could buy. But we're struggling to think of many that offer a better all-round package from this era. Find a car that was specified for off road use and it'll deliver mud-plugging prowess expert enough to suit any right-minded user. Yet with AIRMATIC suspension fitted, it can ride like a Rolls Royce. Quick, capable, practical and luxurious, this is at last the car Mercedes always should have had in this segment.
