Do we ever forget an old War Hero?

Atleast I don’t think so because they have served us with all their strength and
courage when there was no one around. You might all be thinking who am I referring to in these above lines well! I am talking about the iconic Mercedes Benz model series 124. Recently the 124 Series from the legendary German premium auto manufacturer Mercedes Benz has earned the H registration plate which actually signifies that they have achieved the young Classics status.

This car has number of prestigious awards under its name and if you ask me the 124 series have seen and experienced it all. The iconic series was actually available with various body shapes and sizes and between the time periods of 1984 to 1997 more than 2.7 million units of these were made which also speaks of its popularity. The premium saloon was launched back in the year 1984 and replaced the W123 model., it was available with the following models which included the 200 D, 250 D, 300 D, 200, 230 E, 260 E, and 300 E.

This car was actually popular for its solid built quality and advanced German engineering, later in the year 1993 the model series name was changed to the E Class. This saloon featured a suspension system with individual wishbone control arms at the front and a multi-link independent suspension at the rear and was popular amongst the crowd for its impressive handling, advanced safety features. The E Class design was inspired from the W 201 and possessed clear sporty lines and body panels which were made out of high-strength steel and people back then specially preferred it for its advanced technological features it carried back then, the interior comfort and spaciousness and offcourse its modern design.

When you say “Mercedes Benz ” the first thing that comes to the mind are the luxury premium sedans or those sporty overpowered AMG tuned cars but the German premium automaker also knows a thing or two about SUV’s and have a pretty impressive collection of hardcore SUV’s under their product portfolio. Take for example the mighty old Dinosaur G-Class or the sportier and capable GL -Class but our hot favorite got to be the ML-Class. Yes! This may not be as big or bulky like the other two but surely has all the hardware and ability to take you out of any situation.

The Mid-size premium SUV was first offered to the world in the year 1997 as a 1998 model and it quickly gained popularity because of its shape, size and fuel efficient engines. Mercedes launched the updated ML-Class in India and guess what it is even assembled in Mercedes Benz, Pune plant in India. This is the third generation ML Class that is being sold currently in both International and Indian market as well while the International markets can choose from both petrol and diesel engine options but here in India it is available with only two diesel engine options which include the 350 CDI and the smaller and more fuel efficient 250 CDI. So what else will you get with the ML Class?

Well! You get a vehicle which is capable on urban roads and transforms itself to be equally capable offroader when you feel like having some real fun. Although Mercedes has already started testing the new generation ML Class and hopefully it too will be launched in our Indian market in the coming years but till then you have to remain satisfied with the current generation SUV that is being sold here in India. Here is all the information of the 3rd generation ML Class which is available now in our Country.

The concept of owning a premium Crossover may sound new to many but we already have few important cars in this segment available in India, take for example the BMW BMW X1 or the Audi Q3 now another popular German premium auto manufacturer, Mercedes was missing from the action but in the year 2013, they showcased their own version of a compact premium Crossover called the GLA Class at the Frankfurt Auto show and although they launched the crossover in some of the International markets already but not yet in India which is also one their important markets for compact cars. Don’t be upset if you have seen the images and found it interesting and want to own one for yourself or your family then you surely can because Mercedes Benz has already decided that they will be launching the GLA in India on September 30th 2014.

So this X1 and the Q3 competitor is already grabbing lot of attention even before its launch that’s because nobody really expected a compact Crossover from a brand who is mostly famous for their bigger and bulkier SUV’s like the M and GL Class. Now the GLA is not typically a SUV which is quite clear from its sporty stance and more A Class hatch inspired looks but this is not exactly the same A-class hatch although both the GLA and A-Class share the same platform. Mercedes has been able to give the car its own unique character and styling and quite frankly it looks like nothing else that came out from the Merc’s stable.

Although Mercedes has not revealed much about the new GLA except its launch date and a trailer of this upcoming crossover but we expect that Mercedes Mercedes will be launching this new vehicle with both diesel and engine options and a 7 speed automatic transmission which actually will make the car more fun and exciting to drive.

The whole idea of compact Luxury segment cars is new and every other premium auto manufacturing brand is taking their dig in this segment. Mercedes-Benz is one such brand who developed their introduced their compact cars back in the year 1997, when they launched the first generation A-Class codenamed (W168), while the second generation model was introduced back in the year 2005, to be frank initially their compact cars were not a huge success. The German premium auto manufacturer later in the year 2005 introduced the B Class which unlike their other products was actually was a front wheel drive vehicle and shared the same platform and some of the engines with the A Class but it was also equipped with some more powerful engines which added to its advantage.

Now, Mercedes calls the B Class a compact Sports Tourer instead of a hatchback but let’s just say keeping in mind our Indian consumers preference, needs and outlook towards cars we are calling it a proper premium hatchback which has 5 doors (including the Boot door at the rear), a spacious interior and all the comfort features that you will expect out of an entry level premium car. Mercedes Benz has launched the B Class in India in 2013 and it was well received by the Indian consumers who wanted a spacious car than the sporty looking rather smaller A Class but I am sure although they loved everything about their car but wanted its appearance to be sportier and impressive just like the A Class hatch. Well! Perhaps Mercedes too disliked the appearance of their B Class and that is the also perhaps the reason why Mercedes unveiled the facelift B Class to the world which definitely appears to be sportier than its predecessor. Mercedes besides just improving the appearance of this Sports Tourer also has worked on its interior; unfortunately the new B Class facelift remains unchanged under the hood.

Mercedes will showcase their facelift B Class at the 2014 Paris motor Show which will be held in the month of October and it will most probably make its way on the Indian shores sometimes in the year 2015. So below provided are our first impression of the 2015 Mercedes B Class facelift.
