    24 September 2008 by Ben Barry

      The Mercedes C63 AMG Performance Package costs £3210 and promises to turn the four-door saloon from Affalterbach into an M3 beater. For your money you get uprated brakes and suspension, a...

  • Mercedes B170 NGT (2008) gas powered review

    Price:  £22,791

    25 June 2008 by Christopher Hubbard

    The initials at the end of Mercedes-Benz B 170 NGT do not stand for No Green Technology. That’s just a rumour. BMW may be thrashing Mercedes in the environmental PR stakes just now, but it doesn’t mean the big M isn’t trying. The B 170 NGT is a B-Class with a conscience. And a boot full of Natural Gas… So, the...

  • Mercedes S320 CDI LWB (2008) review

    Price:  £59,885

    02 June 2008 by Ben Pulman

    The best car Mercedes makes? Surely it’s got to be the S320 CDI. The S-class absolutely dominates its market segment and, according to Merc, nearly 25 percent of all limos sold in the UK are the...

    Price:  £20,850

    30 May 2008 by Guy Bird

    Plaudits for the Mercedes B-class were thin on the ground back in 2005 when the car first launched, pitched as a ‘Compact Sports Tourer’. To drive it was nothing of the sort – not as ‘compact’ or...

    30 May 2008 by Guy Bird

    Luckily for the Mercedes A-class, its otherwise dull 2008 facelift has been saved from obscurity by interesting new engine and powertrain developments. Ignore the forgettable visual exterior and...
