Mercedes-Benz has an extensive model list for you to choose from. From SUVs, coupe-SUVs, 7-seater SUVs, coupes, cabriolets, 4-door coupes, not to mention performance models for each of those niches. There seems to be a new Mercedes model catered to every single niche, and every one of them even more different than the last.
If you are in a position to buy a Mercedes, choosing the right model may seem a little bit of a challenge. Even from a financial standpoint, as the cheapest models can set you back just over a hundred thousand, but higher specified models can run you up over half a million dollars or more. To find out which Benz best suits your lifestyle, we’ve compiled a list of some popular Mercedes models for you to have a quick gander.
Mercedes’s smallest hatchback may not seem that impressive compared to the larger, more imposing saloons and luxury barges. But for what it is, the A-Class is a mighty impressive hatchback that’s relatively easy on your wallet and has loads to offer in a compact package. Comfortable, well equipped, luxurious, full of tech innovations and features, anyone can set foot in the A-Class and get comfortable behind the wheel in no time.
And if that doesn’t tickle your fancy, you have the Mercedes AMG variant of this hatch, which has one of the most powerful turbocharged 2.0L engines in production today.
Beneath its SUV bodywork, the Mercedes GLA shares the same platform as the A-Class. In fact, many of the interior features of the GLA are identical to the smaller hatchback. The dashboard shares the same dual-screen setup and MBUX infotainment system, with identical air vents and HVAC controls.
But with the GLA, you get an increased carrying capacity and a roomier interior. The driving position is raised higher than the A-Class, and you get 435 litres of storage space in the back, and you get a flatter boot floor to slide larger, heavier items in. It’s a more practical version of the hatch. With a much higher
Mercedes may already have a very reputable subcompact crossover with the GLA, but the GLB further expands on the new and improved SUV formula to give buyers 7 seats, and even more boot space in the rear. Like the A-Class, it is based on Mercedes’s extensive MFA2 platform which underpins a total of 8 cars in Mercedes’s line-up, including the GLA-Class and the CLA-Class Coupe.
A benefit of owning the GLB is the excess space you get while being just 224mm longer and 47mm taller than the GLA-Class. Passengers in the third row would do fine when for a long highway journey across Singapore. With the third row of seats folded, you get 500 litres of storage. More, if you fold the second row down too. The GLB-Class is definitely the most practical of all the A-Class based models.
The C-Class, the coveted executive coupe that’s been adored by generations of drivers. After all, the C-Class is Mercedes-Benz’s bestselling sedan. In the 39 years since its production, there have been a total of 10.5 million C-Class units sold, making it the best-selling model from the brand.
Over the years, the C-Class has seen numerous revisions, with each model following in the footsteps of the luxurious S-Class flagship model. But for people who want a comfortable, compact executive for going about their day-to-day business in comfort, the C-Class is a stellar choice. With the new W206 Mercedes C-Class coming our way, it’s about to be even better.
For consumers who like the C-Class, but think it’s a little too small for their needs, fret not, the Mercedes GLC may be the one for you. This SUV may not boast 7 seats like some SUVs, but you get the same level of luxury you’d get in a C-Class. A beautifully laid out cabin, plush expensive materials on most surfaces, a range of powerful and capable engines, and a massive 550-litre boot in the back. This would be excellent for the C-Class driver who needs more space than a C-Class Estate.
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is one of the most recognizable luxury executive sedans in the market and a favourite among businessmen and retirees alike. The E-Class strikes a balance between the smaller C-Class and the larger S-Class luxury saloon and offers traits from both those cars in a more attractive package.
The flagship model, the Mercedes S-Class. While the S-Class isn’t popular per se, it is a popular choice among the top models from other German Marques. And there are plenty of reasons for it. The S-Class is usually on the receiving end of Mercedes’s cutting-edge driver technologies, such as employing adaptive cruise control, soft-closing doors, and with the latest generation, rear-wheel steering.
Of course, we can’t forget the luxurious interior and level of comfort offered in this luxury saloon. For decades, the S-Class has reigned supreme in Singapore as the choice luxury car amongst businessmen, or tycoons. And with the latest W223 generation Mercedes-Benz S-Class, it’s highly likely that the S-Class will keep its top spot.
