The EQE is the executive model nameplate of the Mercedes-Benz, rapidly expanding all-electric EQ range. I recently reviewed the Sedan style of the EQE, however, arguably rather confusingly, there’s also an SUV EQE too, so you can be damned sure I wanted to test that out as well. To add to my glee, not only […]
Call me old-fashioned, but it wasn’t that long ago that a 2L engine produced 70 kW of power and 148 Nm of torque, well not only does the latest 2L C43 AMG boast over four times that power, but with 310 kW and 500 Nm, the output rivals its very own twin-turbo V6 – oh […]
Originally launched in 2016, the Mercedes-Benz GLC rapidly became the German luxury brand’s biggest selling SUV. Boasting over 2.6 million happy customers and topping category charts, are certainly milestones that are tough acts to follow, so in short, the second generation has to be good – thankfully, it is.

Mercedes’ EQ alphabet continues to expand with the ‘quiet’ introduction of the all-electric B.

Having driven the B-Class when it […]

Two new roof boxes have been unveiled that not only add a touch of style but also double up as extra storage space. Available in either 430 or 590 litres, the roof boxes easily […]
Since 1972 the Mercedes S-Class or Sonderklasse (Special Class) has been just that, large, luxury sedans that sit at the pinnacle of the German brand in terms of prestige and refinement. But what happens when it’s given an electric heart and handed over to their AMG performance division? Mercedes-Benz NZ let us find out. The […]
I find the older I get, the more appreciation I have for a leisurely and more relaxed way of driving. Sure, getting out onto a twisty road with some million-horsepower asphalt devourer will still get the adrenaline going, but the appeal having just enough power to soak up the miles in quiet and refinement grows […]
With some help from NY based Master & Dynamic.
It is set to be the most efficient Mercedes-Benz ever!
