Mercedes-Benz's automotive history can be traced all the way back to the 1886 Benz Patent-Motorwagen, which it claims as the first gasoline-powered automobile. Currently, the German luxury automaker offers a full lineup of vehicles in nearly every segment imaginable, from the pint-sized A-class up to the GLS-class three-row crossover. It even builds two cargo vans, the Sprinter and Metris.
There's plenty of clever safety tech in the new Sprinter, much of which was plucked right from M-B's passenger cars.
The GLB's wheelbase is about 2 inches shorter than the GLC's.
Modern engines require modern solutions.
It's more or less the same tech you get in any other Merc, which is very much a good thing.
It's smaller than it looks, but it's loaded with all manner of newfangled kit.
Whether it's tech or creature comforts, there's more than there used to be.
The trade-off for having to wear the spoiler is getting access to a 503-horsepower, 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8.
With a 255-horsepower I4 and optional all-wheel drive, the GLC300 is a comfortable, capable cruiser.
