Road Test: 2011 Mercedes-Benz S 250 CDI

I usually prefer a big sedan like the S-Class to be black, but apparently white exterior works quite nicely as well. Diamond White exterior with the 20″ Behes alloys make the big and luxurious S-Class sedan look a bit sportier. However, we haven’t come here to make a judgement on the car’s outlook, but to try it’s new engine, which sounds something completely else than a sporty. Now, for the first time in S-Class history there is a 4-cylinder engine available, and it’s a diesel.

Road Test: 2011 Mercedes-Benz CLS 350 CDI

It still is easily recognisable. The long bonnet, short rear boot lid, frameless side windows and roofline which slowly drops towards the end of the car. The proportions of the design have stayed unchanged. Yet the second generation CLS have completely new look. The front of the car has clearly borrowed some bits from the new SLS AMG. The front looks now much more aggressive and the large star in the radiator grille won’t be unnoticed. One distinguishing and also technicically interesting feature are the headlamps, where all of the regular dynamic light functions use LED technology. A total of 71 LEDs are in three arrow-shaped layers. The upper layer contains the LED indicator, second layer is the LED side light offering LED low beam functions and the lowest level of the headlamp houses the main beam and nightview functions. The rear lights have familiar triangular shape, but are much more rounded than before. The new CLS surely looks good, but I’m not sure if it can match the previous model, as the first CLS looked fantastic.

Road Test: 2011 Mercedes-Benz CL 500 4Matic

If you think that Mercedes-Benz’s big coupe, the CL looks good in pictures, you should see it in real life. Because it’s just beautiful. It looks elegant and stylish, but has also sportier ingredients in its exterior. The facelifted CL has a newly designed front bumber with three air intake openings and a chrome trip strip. Daytime running lights with LED technology are integrated in the side openings for the brake cooling air. Headlights have a more curvy look and the radiator grille is designed to represent a V-shape, making the front of the car to look more dynamic. In the rear the design has remained pretty much the same as before. Only the rear lights have a new form.

Road Test: 2010 Mercedes-Benz E 350 CDI 4Matic

Mercedes-Benz new E-class is now available also with 4Matic which is Mercedes term for their all-wheel-drive system. Timing couldn’t have been better, because new E-Class 4Matic arrives in Finland same time with the best winter for many years. Meaning there is a lot of snow and freezing weather to keep the roads just nicely slippery. You couldn’t wish for a better situation to test the capabilities of the new four-wheel drive. In the morning there is light snow cover on top of the car, so once again I have to clean the car from the snow. Task which have become a bit too familiar this winter. But for some reason, this doesn’t bother me today at all. Maybe it’s because soon I will get the taste of the new E-class 4Matic.
