Model range: Individuality, dynamism and innovation, combined with exemplary quality and safety
  • A compelling choice of vehicles for every purpose and lifestyle
  • The largest product portfolio in the premium market, with more than 120 model variants
  • Engines from 60 kW/82 hp to 460 kW/626 hp
With its 16 model series and more than 120 model variants — a record number — Mercedes-Benz, as the DaimlerChrysler Group’s premium brand, is fulfilling the demands of drivers who are conscious of comfort and quality and want their cars to serve their exclusive lifestyles. In every sense, such customers have unusually high expectations when it comes to their cars.
From an innovative compact saloon with flair to a four-door saloon offering maximum comfort, a practical estate car for work and leisure, a sporty roadster with dynamic drive, a coupé with chic design, a four-seater cabriolet, a robust SUV with four-wheel drive, and a Grand Sports Tourer with unprecedented spaciousness — all models deliver the values and characteristics that have always shaped the brand image of Mercedes-Benz passenger cars: a confident presence, top quality and reliability, innovative technology and exemplary safety. In the Mercedes-Benz model range, AMG high-performance cars represent dynamism, exclusivity and cutting-edge technology.
The Mercedes-Benz safety concept includes the Electronic Stability Program (ESP®), which is standard equipment in all Mercedes-Benz passenger cars. And the special-protection vehicles from the Guard product range offer maximum protection for vulnerable groups of people.
MobiloLife: mobility and value retention guaranteed for a car’s entire service life
In many European countries, Mercedes-Benz guarantees the mobility and value retention of all newly produced passenger cars. The rust-perforation warranty and the MobiloLife mobility warranty are valid for four years, without restrictions. Thereafter, a long-term warranty of up to 30 years takes effect, on the condition that the car is regularly serviced at a Mercedes-Benz authorised workshop. A warranty claim may be submitted as long as no more than two years have elapsed since the last maintenance service.
The MobiloLife warranty covers the cost of repair of rust perforation (from the inside out) to the body or underbody, provided the repairs are performed by a service provider under contract with Mercedes-Benz, within a period of up to 30 years. What’s more, the car owner’s mobility is ensured during the time period in which the rust repairs are being carried out. The range of services offered by MobiloLife is equally comprehensive in the event of breakdowns and other problems. In such cases, Mercedes customers are entitled to many warranty services free of charge for the service life of their vehicles (up to a 30-year maximum) if they regularly have their cars checked at a Mercedes-Benz authorised workshop, beginning in the fifth year of the vehicles’ service life. Within the first four years of the life of a Mercedes passenger car, MobiloLife also assists drivers who experience small mishaps that lead to breakdowns, including the loss of a key, a dead battery, low oil or coolant levels, tyre damage or inadvertently filling a car with the wrong fuel.
A-Class: a compact trendsetter
  • Second generation of the successful compact car
Thanks to its unique sandwich concept, the second-generation A Class also offers tremendous advantages including the occupant safety that is so typical of Mercedes, exemplary use of interior space and superb versatility. The interior space is significantly improved compared to that of its predecessor and surpasses other compact cars. The new A Class has also achieved a remarkable advantage in perceived value, underscoring its premium status and setting new standards for the compact car segment. The model range of the new A Class includes two body versions, each with its own distinct character: in addition to the versatile five-door model, Mercedes-Benz is now offering a three-door version in this model range, a car with an appealingly sporty, youthful look. The performance of the newly developed and improved four-cylinder engines has been boosted by up to 38 percent, while fuel consumption has been reduced by up to ten percent.

The new Mercedes-Benz B Class celebrated its world premiere at the 2005 Geneva Motor Show. This Compact Sports Tourer stands out through its excellent design, dynamism and dimensions. Because of the space-saving arrangement of the engine and the transmission in front of and under the passenger compartment, the new B Class offers the same spacious interior as larger saloons and estate cars in spite of its compact outer dimensions. Powerful CDI diesel engines and state-of-the-art petrol engines meet the demands of the Sports Tourer concept for superior driving performance and lots of driving pleasure.

Since spring 2003, Mercedes-Benz has continued its successful tradition of four-seater cabriolets with the CLK Class Cabriolet.

CLS-Class: coupé for connoisseurs
  • New four-door coupé concept
  • Unique combination of coupé elegance and saloon comfort
Mercedes-Benz unveiled the new CLS-Class, a four-door coupé, at the Geneva Motor Show in the spring of 2004. The car is based on a unique vehicle concept that, for the first time, combines the elegance and dynamism of a coupé with the comfort and practicality of a saloon. Although the four-door Mercedes coupe's spaciousness, boot capacity and suitability for everyday use are all equal to those of a saloon, its lines display the fascinating emotional character of a true coupé. This to-date unique combination puts the new CLS Class a coupé-generation ahead of its rivals. The technical equipment also sets new standards. Three high-performance petrol engines are available for the CLS Class: the V6 engine with 200 kW/272 hp for the CLS 350, the powerful eight-cylinder with 225 kW/306 hp for the CLS 500, and the AMG top-of-the-line model — the CLS 55 AMG with its 350-kW/ 476 hp supercharged AMG V8 engine. The CLS 320 CDI with a powerful V6 diesel engine is a new addition to the CLS-Class Coupé range.

S-Class: leading-edge automobile technology
  • Pioneering technology for increased safety and comfort
  • Larger body for first class travel comfort in all seats
  • New V8 engine for dynamic driving pleasure
A new generation is now at the pinnacle of automotive engineering. The new S-Class debuted in autumn 2005. Like its predecessors, the new S Class features technical innovations as standard equipment, making this Mercedes flagship model the benchmark for passenger car development in general. Pioneering safety features and exemplary comfort continue to be the outstanding attributes of the S Class. Compared to its predecessor, the new top model has grown in every dimension. Two different body variants measuring either 5076 or 5206 millimetres in length are available, an increase of 33 and 43 millimetres on the current S Class. Likewise, the wheelbase has increased by 70 and 80 millimetres to 3035 and 3165 millimetres respectively. The new dimensions create the conditions for an interior layout that provides every passenger with first class comfort. Three of the four engines available for the new S Class were newly developed by Mercedes-Benz. They offer up to 26 percent more output and up to 15 percent more torque than their predecessors. A new eight-cylinder engine delivering 285 kW/388 hp and a powerful 530 Nm of torque from 2800 rpm were available right from the market launch in autumn 2005.

CL-Class: dream car with high-tech equipment
  • Market launch in October 1999, model updated in autumn 2002
  • Range: four engine variants and luxurious equipment
  • Innovations: Active Body Control and windowbags
The latest technology and unique design shape the character of the exclusive top-of-the-range coupé in the Mercedes-Benz model range. In October 1999, Mercedes-Benz equipped the CL Class with the Active Body Control (ABC) system as standard equipment, offering a previously unattainable level of handling dynamics and driving comfort. The CL-Class cars were the world’s first passenger cars to offer the system as standard equipment. The system compensates for the body movements that typically occur when moving off, cornering and braking. The CL 65 AMG is available with a V12 biturbo engine with 450 kW/612 hp and 1000 Nm of torque.

SLK-Class: sporty, charismatic roadster
  • Second generation of the SLK Class launched in spring 2004
  • Now with new V6 engines and also with an eight-cylinder unit
One of the most exciting and successful sports cars, now into its second round, is the new SLK-Class. More attractive, more powerful and sportier than its predecessor, this appealing two-seater celebrated its market launch in March 2004. Four engine variants are available, developing from 120 kW/163 hp to 265 kW/360 hp, including - for the first time in this vehicle class - an eight-cylinder engine from Mercedes-AMG. The SLK 280 and SLK 350 are powered by a newly developed V6 engine delivering 170 kW/231 hp or 200 kW/272 hp for dynamic driving pleasure. The second generation of this two-seater again captivates the eye with its sophisticated design featuring details reminiscent of motor racing. The enhanced vario-roof, which transforms the roadster into a coupé in just 22 seconds, is joined on the list of standard equipment by head/thorax sidebags, adaptive front airbags and two-stage belt force limiters. In a global first, Mercedes-Benz is offering the AIRSCARF neck-level heating system.

SL Class: the sports car legend lives on
  • World premiere in July 2001
  • Two powerful models with 12-cylinder biturbo engine
In the autumn of 2001, Mercedes-Benz embarked on a new chapter in the long-standing tradition of the SL roadster by introducing a stylistically fascinating new sports car with state-of-the-art engineering. Thanks to a unique combination of cutting-edge electronic systems unparalleled in the automotive world, the new roadster offers dynamic handling like no other vehicle while offering the highest level of driving safety, and setting new standards for sports cars. Its foremost technical innovation is the Active Body Control (ABC) chassis system that reduces body movements when cornering or braking. The SL Class eight-cylinder and twelve-cylinder models boast a unique performance range as standard.

SLR McLaren: a modern Gran Turismo
  • High-performance sports car with 460 kW/626 hp
  • Carbon-fibre body shell and crash structure
  • High-performance ceramic brake discs
The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren testifies to the many years of experience of Mercedes-Benz and Formula 1 partner McLaren in developing and producing high-performance sports cars. The two-seater, with its striking swing-wing doors and styling elements that recall the Formula 1 Silver Arrow, continues the legend of the SLR racing car from the 1950s. The newly developed supercharged AMG V8 engine delivers 460 kW/626 hp and accelerates the sports car from zero to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds. Its top speed is 334 km/h. Like the Formula 1 racing car produced by McLaren-Mercedes, the new SLR McLaren also has a body made of lightweight carbon-fibre materials with an outstanding degree of energy absorption, thus providing a very high level of safety to the driver and passenger. The SLR McLaren is the world’s first series-production car with a front crash structure that consists entirely of carbon fibre. Adaptive airbags, newly developed knee and sidebags, seat belt tensioners, high-performance ceramic brake discs and an automatically extending air brake on the boot lid round off the safety equipment of the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren, which sets standards in all areas in this class.

GL-Class: first class on and off-road
  • New premium off-roader for up to seven people
  • Maximum safety thanks to PRE-SAFE® occupant protection system
  • Three powerful V8 engines and a tried-and-tested V6 diesel unit
Mercedes-Benz is unveiling a new highlight in the luxury Sports Utility Vehicle market segment: the GL-Class. The seven-seater premium off-roader offers excellent handling both on and off-road and pampers occupants with its extremely spacious accommodation and the comfort of a luxury saloon. The GL-Class sets another milestone with PRE-SAFE®, the comprehensive safety system, a first in this market segment. With its poised, assured presence, the GL-Class leaves you in no doubt about its aspirations to conquer this market segment. The distinctive design idiom exudes power and exclusivity. 4MATIC – the permanent all-wheel drive from Mercedes-Benz – provides the GL-Class with superior handling whatever the conditions. Together with the standard-fit AIRMATIC air suspension, the precise speed-sensitive power steering and the ADS Adaptive Damping System also fitted as standard, the imposing GL-Class (wheelbase 3075 mm) handles impressively. Handling when pulling a trailer is no less impressive thanks to the ESP® Trailer Stabilisation. It defuses critical driving situations involving a trailer before they become dangerous by precisely applying the brakes, while AIRMATIC provides fully automatic level adjustment.

R-Class: Grand Sports Tourer from Mercedes-Benz
  • Unique vehicle concept in response to changing customer wishes
  • New dimensions for outstanding spaciousness
Through the new R Class Grand Sports Tourer, Mercedes-Benz is highlighting its role as a pioneer and trendsetter. The unique vehicle concept combines the advantages of existing vehicle types — such as sporty saloons, estate cars, vans and sports utility vehicles — into a new, individual profile. Its outstanding hallmarks are design, dynamism and dimensions. The North American market will saw launch of the new R Class in autumn 2005. Mercedes customers in Europe will be able to take delivery of the car from early 2006. The power range of the engines starts at 165 kW/224 hp and extends to 225 kW/306 hp, making clear just what the R Class has to offer in terms of dynamism and pleasure. All of the engines are combined with the 7G-TRONIC seven-speed automatic transmission, which comes as standard equipment. Permanent all-wheel drive, the 4ETS traction system and ESP® team up to offer peerless driving safety and keep the new R Class safely on course, even in poor road conditions. These systems are all available as standard, as is the air suspension on the rear axle. Mercedes-Benz presented a version of the R Class developed specially for the European market at the International Motor Show (IAA) in September 2005. Its body is 235 millimetres shorter than the long-wheelbase version of the Grand Sports Tourer.

M-Class: cultivated power
  • New premium off-roader with typical Mercedes innovations
  • Three newly developed V6 engines and new high-performance V8 AMG engine
  • 4ETS traction system with extended performance range
With the very latest in technology such as the 7G-TRONIC seven-speed automatic transmission as standard; the PRE-SAFE® preventive occupant protection system; AIRMATIC air suspension; the higher-performance 4ETS all-wheel-drive system and powerful six and eight-cylinder engines, the M Class is again demonstrating its outstanding position in this rapidly growing market segment, which Mercedes-Benz created in 1997 with the predecessor model. Three of the four engines available in 2005 are newly developed and significantly exceed the output and torque of the engines for the predecessor model. The unique 7G-TRONIC seven-speed automatic transmission is fitted as standard in all models of the new M Class. Mercedes-Benz has taken the permanent four-wheel drive and the 4ETS traction system to the next level by incorporating additional functions such as Downhill Speed Regulation, hill-start assist and off-road ABS. A new Off-Road Pro engineering package is available as an option, including a two-speed transfer case, low-range gear ratio, manually or automatically selectable differential lock (100%) and a modified version of the AIRMATIC air suspension designed especially for off-road driving.
