    With a lineage descended from Le Mans–inspired gullwings, few cars have the chutzpah of the Mercedes-Benz SL. Steeped in 60 years of tradition and polished to near-perfection, it has been for most of its existence an embodiment of success, as well as the de facto baseline for high-end convertibles. On the other hand, a couple of decades ago, Stuttgart allowed the SL to grow soft in the middle; the SL of the 1980s and 1990s maintained its regal fitments but was oft dismissed by sports-car cognoscenti as a Beverly Hills shopping cart, a reward for marrying into a successful dental practice.

    Redemption began with the new fifth-generation SL in 2003, Mercedes dialing in progressively more performance and handling acuity with each passing year. Of these, the fire-and-brimstone SL63 AMG was definitely our favorite, and while that model lost its splendid, naturally aspirated 6.2-liter V-8 in the car’s extensive 2013 redesign, it’s no less an executor of all our guiltiest pleasures.

    With its sleek, eye‐catching design, impressive cargo capacity and efficient turbodiesel engine, the highly successful Sprinter commercial van continues to set the pace for the modern van market segment, and has enjoyed tremendous sales growth in the U.S. After decades of truck‐based box vans with gasoline engines, the Sprinter burst into the European market in 1995, then made its U.S. debut in 2001.

    The practical design and outstanding quality of the Sprinter translate to impressive cargo capacity and low operating costs. With its efficient BlueTEC diesel engine, the Sprinter gets higher fuel mileage than its competitors, while its high roof and large door openings give the van class‐leading cargo carrying ability. Large delivery companies have moved to Sprinter vans, and it’s also become a favorite of small businesses such as catering firms and building trades.

    The Sprinter Success Story

    The Sprinter cargo van features a best‐in‐class payload capacity of 5,415 pounds and cargo capacity of up to 547 cubic feet. The van also boasts the largest side‐ and rear‐door openings as well as the lowest load floor and step‐in height of any full‐size van.

    The Sprinter has been sold in the U.S. since 2001 by Freightliner, the leading manufacturer of medium and heavy‐duty trucks in North America, and through select Mercedes‐Benz dealers since 2010. Both MBUSA and Freightliner are divisions of Daimler AG, the world’s largest manufacturer of commercial vehicles.

    All Sprinters come with a number of Mercedes‐Benz safety features ‐‐ ESP stability and rollover control, ABS anti‐lock brakes, Brake Assist and traction control. The driver and front passenger seats are equipped with standard multi‐stage front air bags, and side curtain and torso air bags are optionally available.

The brand new CLA features world-leading aerodynamics, an avant-garde coupe design and 4MATIC all-wheel drive, that will be available in Spring 2014. With its frameless doors, the four-door coupe seamlessly carried over the design of the Concept Style Coupe into series production.

    “The response to the Concept Style Coupe was overwhelming. The most frequent comment by far was ‘Please put this car into series production.’ That’s precisely what we are doing now,” notes Dr Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of the Board of Management for Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars. “The CLA is a car that does not confuse ‘mid-size’ with ‘mid-quality’. Its sporty design underscores the sporty side of the Mercedes-Benz brand.”

    The sporty CLA comes with a powerful turbocharged engine generating 208 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, as well as sport suspension and available 4MATIC all- wheel drive. The technical highlights of this new design icon include a new world record in aerodynamics for series production automobiles (Cd value: 0.23) and a wide range of driver assistance systems, including advanced COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST.
