  New Mercedes GLS Spotted At Red Light Next To Ferrari 458 Spider The biggest and most luxurious SUV from Mercedes still isn't willing to show us its production metal. The S-Class of SUVs from Mercedes is getting ready for its third generation and that requires a lot of testing in the real world to perfect the luxobarge and work out all the kinks. A prototype of the fullsize SUV was seen the other day roaming the streets of Germany and at one point it was accompanied at a red light by a lovely Ferrari 458 Spider.

The Mercedes C - Class L has been in production since the end of July 2014 at a factory in Beijing owned by the local Beijing Benz Automotive joint venture

It's all about the rear legroom in China.

Mercedes has not one, not two, but three world premieres at the Beijing Motor Show where aside from the controversial Maybach SUV concept and the A-Class Sedan L, the three-pointed star is also exhibiting the facelifted C-Class L. Like its smaller and bigger (E-Class L) brothers, the sedan is built in China to exclusively cater the local market where rear legroom continues to play an important factor when it comes down to buying a new car.

Mercedes Hints At A Seven-Seat Compact Model

  Mercedes Hints At A Seven-Seat Compact Model Will it be a classic minivan or an SUV? Mercedes-Benz plans to launch at least seven new models on the platform that underpins the recently launched A-Class hatchback. One of them will definitely be a successor to the slow selling B-Class premium minivan, as we’ve already seen prototypes of the model testing with production bodies.

The main difference between the two is the extended wheelbase of the L version, measuring an extra 8 centimeters (3.1 inches). Mercedes Explains Why 2019 C - Class Doesn't Have MBUX Infotainment.

As you would expect, the stretched C-Class follows in the footsteps of the refresh Mercedes gave to the regular model, which is also produced and offered in China. The main difference between the two is the extended wheelbase of the L version, measuring an extra 8 centimeters (3.1 inches). For even more legroom, the passenger sitting on the rear-right seat can electrically adjust the seat in front of him by sliding it forward.

Mercedes EQ Sedan To Fulfill The Role Of Electric C-Class

As standard, the CN-spec C-Class L gets LED headlights with a new look, while those willing to pay more can opt for the smarter Multibeam LED headlights available as an option. Inside, it gets the same fully digital driver’s display as the global C-Class from where it has also inherited the wider infotainment screen. Other novelties include a choice of 64 LED ambient colors, an optional multi contour seat package featuring a massaging function, and an array of new gasoline engines with EQ Boost (48-volt technology).

There’s also the Energizing comfort control originally launched last year for the S-Class. It bundles six selectable programs, each lasting for 10 minutes, which alter the ambient lighting, sound, and other settings to boost comfort inside the cabin.

The C-Class L has been in production since the end of July 2014 at a factory in Beijing owned by the local Beijing Benz Automotive joint venture formed by Mercedes’ parent company Daimler and Chinese marque BAIC Motor back in August 2005. More than 380,000 cars have been sold since the model's start of production almost four years ago.

Refreshing or Revolting: 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class vs. Audi A3 .
Which is the more stylish compact luxury sedan?The A-Class has a planted stance, and that starts up front with the low-slung hood. It also has narrow, angled-in headlights similar to the CLS-Class and a wide grille. This grille features a diamond pattern that gives off a 3D effect. On the Audi A3, the grille is taller and features more conventional bars. The headlights aren't as stretched out as those on the A-Class, making the entire front end look less wide. Character lines that run across the A3's hood are more subtle than those on the A-Class. The cut line of the hood extends all the way to the grille on the A3, but it stops short on the A-Class.
