If I am being honest, I am not a real big fan of the style most Mercedes cars off this side of the SLA. I do really like the new CLA Edition 1 though, it looks very cool. The car will be a limited edition only available for 12 months in Europe. No love for the US Mercedes fans out there.

The top of the line CLA Edition 1 will be the CLA 250. It will pack a 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder with 211 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. It promises 0-62mph in 6.7 seconds and AWD. the car uses a DCT 7-speed transmission. The cars will also get sport tuned AMG suspension. A CLA 45 AMG version is also offered. The CLA 250 Edition 1 starts at 44,625 euros.

Crazy. However, Mercedes-Benz might be taking steps in the opposite direction to actual ...

Aug 20 2014 2:39pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Two Aston Martins were missing from last weekend’s Pebble Beach Concours, but since the foursome of “Q” cars and a new V12 Vantage S roadster distracted the crowd, no one noticed. According to petitions the automaker sent to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Aston Martin would have revealed the next-gen DB9 and Vantage this month (and very likely at Pebble) were there not years of losses and “substantial economic hardship.” In June, ...

Filed under: Spy Photos, Sedan, Videos, Maybach, Mercedes-Benz, Luxury It used to be that if you wanted a Mercedes-Benz S-Class, your choice pretty much came down to which engine you wanted, and that was that. But into the new S-Class, Mercedes is integrating several other model lines and extending its flagship family (both literally and figuratively) as far as it will stretch. In addition to the sedan (already available in two wheelbas ...

Jul 30 2014 2:00pm CDT | Source: Top Speed

The second-generation Smart ForFour has a lot of redeeming qualities about it. The fact that it’s bigger than the ForTwo is already a plus on its own, but its front section also looks a lot more modern than I thought it would. So yeah, I’m a fan of the ForFour and I’m actually excited to hear that Smart decided to introduce the ForFour’s own "Edition 1" model.It’s just like what big brother Mercedes has done with ...
