  • "Hey ChatGPT, help me in producing the new MMA platform underpinning the next CLA Class," said Mercedes-Benz

    Well, not in those exact words but Mercedes-Benz did launch a ChatGPT project within its Mercedes-Benz Cars Operations 360 (MO360) digital ecosystem that aims to maximise efficiency for global vehicle production, starting with the new Mercedes Modular Architecture (MMA) platform that will underpin the next Mercedes-Benz CLA Class.

  • Used 1st-gen (C117) Mercedes-Benz CLA, the baby Merc that brought sexy back

    We’ve covered the W176 Mercedes-Benz A-Class last week but for those who aren’t fans of hatchbacks, there is an alternative – a used first-generation (C117) Mercedes-Benz CLA. There is, however, a price to pay (literally) for the sexy four-door coupe design, as we will get into it shortly. What makes this generation of the Mercedes-Benz CLA more appealing is the fact that you can’t buy the current-generation CLA via official channels, the ‘regular’ non-AMG CLA at least. This makes the first-gene

  • Report: 2025 long wheelbase Mercedes-Benz CLA EV to replace A-Class Sedan

    We’ve previously reported that the Mercedes-Benz A-Class Sedan (V177) will not be replaced after the current generation model ends. The move is part of Mercedes-Benz Cars’ efforts to streamline its product offerings, focusing on higher margin products. It begs the question, is Mercedes-Benz really going to exit the compact sedan segment entirely? Not at all, according to a recent report from German business publications Automobilwoche. The report claims that the vacuum that will soon be left in

    Probably the sleekest and sexiest model in the Mercedes-Benz compact series is the Mercedes-Benz CLA. The CLA offered those that prefer a more modern look over the classic sedans that Mercedes-Benz had on offer a compromise with the CLA.

  • 8 millionaire-looking cars for under RM 200k

    Last week, we showed you ten expensive-looking cars under RM 100k and some of you think those selections don’t quite shout ‘appearing rich’. Indeed, the Proton X50 and X70 may feel expensive but they’re still a Proton (or Geely) underneath. For this week’s Top Rank Millionaire-Looking Motors (MLM), we’re bumping up the budget to RM 200,000 and unlike the last list, we’ll be focusing only in the used car market. We’ve selected 8 for this list and you can be certain these fine cars will make you g

  • Mercedes-Benz CLA handles worse than a Kia Picanto?

    The moose test is an evasive maneuver test done to evaluate how well a vehicle performs when evading an obstacle on the road. It is a test of the car’s handling balance and stability control. The term was coined after Swedish car magazine Teknikens Varld flipped over a first-gen Mercedes-Benz A-Class in a test to measure the car’s ability to avoid hitting a moose, which is a common sight in Sweden. Funny that the Mercedes-Benz A-Class was mentioned, because the latest generation Mercedes-Benz CL
