    The Mercedes-Benz S-Class has long laid claim to the top of the luxury-sedan ladder, especially if you value technology, engineering, and some of the most advanced active safety and occupant protection in the world, perhaps over lavish, hand-crafted displays of wealth and 'bespoke' exclusivity. Today's S-Class remains one of the best...

    The Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class is the first front-wheel-drive car offered by the brand in the U.S. Its entry-level positioning and size make it somewhat of a spiritual successor to the compact 190E.

It received a significant update in 2013 and was joined at the small end of the three-pointed star's crossover lineup by the compact GLA-Class for 2015.

    Like the CLA-Class, the Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class is a spin-off of the A-Class hatch that is not available in the U.S. The GLA trades the CLA's slinky sedan shape for a hatchback/wagon body that provides a unique interpretation of the contemporary crossover vehicle. Like the CLA, the GLA is available with all-wheel drive, which completes the...
