Over the past two decades the company has produced many amazing models so we have picked out the best ten for you.
The Mercedes SLS AMG
Released in 2009, this amazing modern Mercedes is actually a new take on the old classic 1954 Gullwing. This model has delighted Mercedes car lovers the world over. It has a 6.2 litre and V8 engine with a 7-speed gearbox.
It might be in homage to the 1954 model but with an acceleration of 0 to 60 in less than four seconds, this is definitely a car for the modern world, thanks to its 563 horsepower.
The Mercedes E63 AMG
This saloon model looks somewhat ordinary on the outside, however the incredible luxury featured in the interior makes it unmistakably Mercedes. The car features a V8 engine giving it intense power taking it from 0 to 60 in just over four seconds.
The Mercedes Benz CLS
The CLS is the traditional executive car offering a great drive for business folk, providing that real traditional luxury we have come to expect from Mercedes. It comes with a 3 litre V6 engine providing around 224 horsepower, giving a great driving experience.
The Mercedes SLK 171
This car comes with a retractable hard top and is an amazing roadster. This model is an up-to-date version of the original 1996 170 model. It boasts a design inspired by F1 vehicles and is the type of convertible which can be driving in all weathers thanks to the roof.
The roadster comes with a 166 horsepower engine which provides an amazing driving experience, making it still one of the most popular Mercedes models of the past two decades.
The Mercedes E-Class W211
This model is recognisable around the world with both saloon and coupe models available. It is adored by Mercedes fans in all countries thanks to its intense style, class and luxurious feel. There are a variety of engine sizes from 2.6 litres up to 6.2 litres in this range.
The Mercedes CL203 Sport Coupe
One of the German manufacturer’s smaller models, the sports coupe has been the choice of young, upcoming professionals for years as a badge of their success. Although it comes with a relatively small engine compared with some models – just 2.5 litres – it still packed a punch on the city streets.
The Mercedes S600
This luxury saloon has set the tone for luxury cars for nearly 60 years. The 2005 update brought a whole new look, emulating a stretched version of a standard Mercedes. The S600 is perhaps not a car to drive, but a car to be driven in. You can get anything from a 2.1L diesel to a supped up 6.2L AMG version.
The Mercedes C 240
A Mercedes man is usually also a family man. The C240 Wagon is probably the ultimate family Mercedes, offering a luxury, yet family friendly, car. The 2.6L V6 engine along with the excellent comfort moved the market towards luxury Station Wagons rather than the boring, old, SUVs. This 2003 car was definitely a game-changer.
The Mercedes A-Class
The Mercedes version of the mini MPV is a sleek luxurious city car which gives an impressive premium drive while being a practical family car at the same time. This model has been flying off the shelves since it was launched bridging the gap for those who never thought a Mercedes was out of their reach.
The Mercedes B-Class
The B-class is the SUV of the Mercedes world, with a higher driving position and a hatchback look, providing another option for Mercedes lovers looking for a smaller, practical car without losing the luxury and engineering associated with the brand.
All of these different models represent the best of the Mercedes brand, displaying the sheer variety and innovation which the car manufacturer brings to the market, over and over again. From small family hatchbacks to top of the range premium sports cars, the Mercedes range really does have a model to suit every lifestyle.
No matter what the model, the Mercedes stamp of luxury, innovation and technology flows through all of them, providing amazing comfort, stunning exteriors to turn every head, and an unmatched driving experience for all motoring enthusiasts.
From the original 1950s models through to today’s revamped versions, the Mercedes stamp of luxury is unmistakable and the biggest question yet to be answered is what will the brand come up with and develop for its fans in the next twenty years.
