Hot hatches were made famous when Volkswagen unleashed the Golf into the world. To join in with the fun, Mercedes-Benz too released a hatchback of their own. Not only does the Mercedes-Benz A-Class promise a fun drive, especially the previous generation W176, but it also plays the role of an entry-level model into the Mercedes-Benz brand.

Used Mercedes-Benz CLA for RM 105k, what are the issues to look out for?

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. Unfortunately, you can no longer purchase a standard CLA new as MBM only has the CLA 45 on sale now, but there are still plenty on the used car market. But what are the issues to look out for?

The Mercedes-Benz CLS 260 is so stylish, there’s little left for power – 1.5L turbo, 184 PS

At the rate that things are progressing in many parts of the world, where governments are waging wars against high CO2 emissions cars and speeding, it’s inevitable that car buyers will soon trend towards lifestyle cars that are packed with the latest infotainment, powered by the smallest available engine. We have already seen this in Hong Kong, Singapore, and Japan, where 180 series engines are the norm for Mercedes-Benz A-Class and C-Class models. Here in Malaysia, the lowest available engine t

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

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.
