Mercedes-Benz Product for 2019

Here are the main arrivals from Mercedes-Benz and Mercedes-AMG. As always, there could be some surprises. Click the headings for more information, driving impressions, pricing and photos.

Mercedes-Benz A-Class sedan

Not to be confused with the forthcoming Mercedes-Benz CLA, the A-Class sedan will be arriving locally soon with the two derivatives being the A200 and A250.

Mercedes-Benz CLA

The CLA is expected to draw power from the same engines offered in the new A-Class with a range of petrol engines packaged in one stylish body.

Mercedes-AMG A35/A45

The first of the performance vehicles from Mercedes-AMG are the compact duo of the A35 and A45. Both boast 2.0-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder motors and all-wheel drive.

Mercedes-Benz B-Class

When the Mercedes-Benz A-Class moved from frumpy MPV to upmarket hatchback, there was a void in practical MPV segment. Enter the B-Class, a practical and sensible family vehicle boasting all the luxury features you'd expect from a Mercedes-Benz but with a family bent. 

Mercedes-Benz GLC facelift

Mercedes-Benz will introduce a heavily updated version of its current GLC to the market later this year, featuring the brand’s latest 48-volt electric architecture.

Mercedes-Benz GLE

Mercedes-Benz's 4th-generation premium SUV has grown in size and standing, with new engines and advanced new suspension technology that bolsters its overall abilities.

Mercedes-Benz GLS

The third-generation of Mercedes-Benz’s largest SUV is confirmed for market introduction, bringing with it 7-seat carrying capacity as well as some offroad bias.
