With sedan, convertible, wagon, and coupe body styles, the E-Class lineup could as well split from the mainstream brand to form its own.
This vehicle comes with no lesser than five powerplants ranging from the sprightly four-cylinder engine to the twin-turbocharged V8 juggernaut. This shouldn’t be a surprise, after all, we are talking about Mercedes folks!

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class has so much to offer we would have to write the longest review ever. It comes with tons of upscale materials and technologies that very few vehicles can match, and if some would try, they would lack a reputable and reliable nameplate to associate with. The beauty in this segment lies with reliability, reputation, and class. Which the Mercedes-Benz E-Class offer to the brim.

The E-Class offers a supple ride and top-notch performance. The engines that come under the hoods are simply among the best the class has seen. You can hardly find any fault while you are behind the Benz wheel.

That said, however, the vehicle has been in the market for quite some time now and newer models are slowly catching up. This segment is competitive and comes chock full of alluring features like the 2017 BMW 5 Series, 2017 Audi A6, 2017 Jaguar XF, and 2017 Lexus GS.

Nevertheless, we’d be expressly lying if we told you there is another car in the market much better than the Benz. The Benz is the king.

New 2017 Mercedes-Benz C300 Coupe Release Date and Review

The design of the new 2017 Mercedes-Benz C300 Coupe is best described by four elements: sensuous, vivid, athletic, and sporty. Now you get the picture! Again, its interior embodies modern luxury, style, and beauty. See, designers and engineers – mostly engineers – were able to offer the new model agile handling, low road and tire vibration, and a high-level of suspension comfort, courtesy of the optional air suspension system, and the dynamically-configured chassis. Its release date, among a host of other details, is covered exhaustively below.

Mercedes knew one thing for sure: the entry-level rear-wheel-drive C300 had to get the best body construction and driving dynamics, let alone the interior appointments and output, in order to keep up with its well-rounded rivals that include the BMW 4 Series, Audi A5, and the Infiniti Q60. While the Mercedes-Benz C-Class is the undisputed honcho of this exclusive crowd, the aforementioned cars are also top dogs that return with changes in their leaps and bounds.

Just like it was expected, the new model, and all models wrapped under the C-Class umbrella at large, have set a new standard in the segment in terms of high-class appeal. Safety is of high caliber, the interior is impeccable, the exterior sports excellent aerodynamics, and the performance is simply breathtaking. I mean, what more could a shopper in this segment ever want!

The exterior design is distinct thanks to the extensive aerodynamic hues that its skin offers. Unlike its predecessor, the new Coupe is 60 mm longer. What this means in Layman’s language is the interior space has significantly improved over the outgoing model. Buyers should therefore expect better legroom than before. A long bonnet and a diamond grille give the coupe a striking sporty front fascia.

Under the hood of the new 2017 Mercedes-Benz C300 Coupe is a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine capable of making a whopping 241 horsepower and 273 lbs. ft. of torque. According to the German marque, this power should be enough to power up the C-Class from 0-60 mph in just 5.9 seconds. And despite the power the engine packs, the same sources reveal it offers up to 30 mpg in highway fuel economy ratings.

When you take a look at the C300, it is an obvious fact that its sports car camouflaged with the profile of a coupe. Just like a speedster, the exterior silhouette appears taut, low, and elongated. In relation to the Sedan version, the Coupe makes itself unique through its distinctive, sportier shape. The sportiness and the width sense are underscored by the larger air intakes that also offer clues on the performance engine requirements.

H7 halogen lamps are standard across the entire C-Class lineup while Adaptive Highbeam assist and LED intelligent light system are standard.

2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class – Release Date, Review and Specs

Nobody would blame you for showing your interest on the new 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class, after all, it boasts of a desirable three-pointed star badge, elegant interior, and a classy styling.

When the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class 2017 hit the market, it offers sophisticated handling limits, and boasted of a strong performance. Now it has been several years past its debut and the same specifications hallmarks that defined its entry are still abundantly provided, only this time they’re better than they were before.

But even with such an appetizing resume, a couple of cynics were vehemently criticizing its lack of abundant cabin space, elevated wind noise, and a blocky exterior design. True, it may have lacked the all-rounded nature of its brand, but the all-new 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class is here to make the foibles disappear to abyss.

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class interior is elegantly designed and follows in the footsteps of the C-Class. This automatically means the cabin is quieter, solidly built, and laden with sophisticated features. Also, there are equipment that are available for customizations. A first in its class is the Air Body Control – an adjustable air suspension system – that suits various driving conditions and intentions through varying the ride height and firmness.

One trait that blankets its appeal is perhaps the lack of versatility. Its cargo volume, for instance, is less than 60 cu. ft. But hey, the specs discussed above more than make up for the lack of abundant cargo volume. There’re other alternatives in the segment that rival the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class accessories and features.

They include the BMW X3, Audi Q5, Lexus NX 200t, Acura RDX, and the Volvo XC60. Each is stronger in a particular trait and it all depends on your lists of priorities. That said, we still think the GLC-Class deserves a test drive because of its right mix of feature galore.
