Based on photographs of a camouflaged 2021 Mercedes-Benz C-Class W206,we decided to have a go at peeling back the camo digitally. Following the body lines as closely as we could, the rendering slowly unveiled itself to be a shrunken Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Mercedes-Benz cars have always adopted a familial look and cars from the smaller segment take styling cues from the larger segment. 2021 will see the W206 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, a much needed update for the 2014 W205 C-Class.

The original Baby Benz – The history of the Mercedes-Benz W201

When the Mercedes-Benz W201 made its debut in December 1982, its looks were far from unique. However, the entry-level model that slotted below the E-Class, S-Class, and SL-Class in Mercedes-Benz’s line-up has become a truly sought-after model and a symbol for the German brand’s future endeavour. The timeless shape and design were penned by Bruno Sacco. Its sharp lines were reminiscent of its siblings, giving it a very distinct, Teutonic Mercedes-Benz look. This W201 was also known as the Baby Be

Mercedes-Benz User Experience, or MBUX for short, is the company’s latest and greatest infotainment to date. How so?

All these can be done without the driver touching the air-conditioning controls. This is made possible by Linguatronic, Mercedes-Benz’s own ‘Siri’ voice command system.

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
