Mercedes AMG GT reviews

The second bespoke sports car from Mercedes' AMG performance division, the AMG GT features a downsized turbocharged V8 for improved emissions and fuel efficiency. Elsewhere it follows the traditional sports coupe format of two doors, two seats and a low-slung body.

Mercedes-Benz A-class reviews

Mercedes-Benz's A-class started life back in 1998 as a tall, compact people carrier. After a very early example of the car rolled over during a swerve test, Mercedes fitted electronic stability control to the A-class, making it the first mainstream model to boast this safety equipment. The second generation A-class (2005-2012) followed the MPV theme, but was better to drive and looked more upmarket. The latest model has morphed into a far more conventional, yet distinctive-looking hatchback. Read our reviews to see how the A-class compares with rivals. 

Latest model: Mercedes-Benz A-class (2012-)

Mercedes-Benz B-class reviews

The Mercedes-Benz B-class is a medium hatchback, but it's tall and wide, giving it MPV-like versatility. The B-class can be luxurious, if the right options are specified. Prices are way in excess of other medium hatchbacks, although you are getting a finely-crafted and very safe car.

Mercedes-Benz C-class reviews

The Mercedes-Benz C-class is popular large car, sold as a saloon, estate and coupé. Its main rivals are the Audi A4 and BMW 3 Series. The C-class is expensive to buy - new or used - but holds its value well. It's comfortable, and the latest diesel engines are very fuel-efficient. 

Latest models: Mercedes C-class (2014-), Mercedes C-class Estate (2014-) and Mercedes C-Class Coupe (2015-)

Mercedes-Benz CLA-class reviews

Mercedes introduced the world to the ‘four-door coupe’ with its E-class-based CLS in 2005. Now it’s applied the same thinking to the A-class to create the CLA. Like the CLS, there's a CLA Shooting Brake too - an estate version with the same dramatic looks but the practicality of a five-door with a larger boot.

Mercedes-Benz CLC reviews

The Mercedes-Benz CLC is actually an evolution of the previous C-class Sport Coupe, but it borrows its frontal styling from the current C-class saloon. Although it's a four-seater coupe, it's never been a particularly fast or sporty car.

Latest model: Mercedes-Benz CLC Coupe (2008-2010)

Mercedes-Benz CLS reviews

The original Mercedes-Benz CLS set the standard for luxury four-door saloons back in 2005. The second-generation CLS is aiming to build on its success, although it faces stiff competition from German rivals Audi and BMW.

Latest model: Mercedes-Benz CLS (2011-); Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake (2012-)

Mercedes-Benz E-class reviews

The Mercedes E-class has a long legacy, being the German maker's mainstay for many years. It's a big luxury saloon (also available in coupe, estate and convertible forms) with many advanced features and an unruffled, refined atmosphere.

    MercedesGLC

    The Mercedes-Benz GLC is the first compact SUV from the German brand to reach the UK. Distilling the road presence and interior ambience of the larger GLE off-roader into a more manageable package, the GLC has a raft of talented competition to contend with.

    2015 Mercedes-Benz V-class 1
