03/06/2014, When Apple’s CarPlay was announced, one of their participating partners was Mercedes-Benz. The CarPlay feature is expected to debut in newer models that will be released later this year, but what does that mean for older models? What does it mean for customers who might have bought a Mercedes-Benz last week but don’t get access to the feature? It sounds like something consumers might get upset about. After all it […]
03/06/2014, It was just a few days ago when we brought you word on Mercedes-Benz having the intention to include Android support when Google’s car infotainment system is ready to rock and roll.

01/07/2014, [CES 2014] Mercedes-Benz makes some of the most desirable vehicles which not only focus on optimum driving pleasure, but also offer a barrage of features in order to make the passengers’ lives easier.

07/30/2013, GPS navigational systems have evolved over the years, with our smartphones these days being more than capable of doubling up as a navigation system as well, but sometimes just because you can be directed to your destination, there are times when you still need to do a bit of searching before you find it. An example would be how a navigation system could guide you to a particular area, but […]
05/28/2013, QR codes have been used in the mainstream mostly for marketing and advertising purposes, but Mercedes-Benz is hoping their implementation will help save lives.
05/16/2013, One thing that we absolutely love about concepts is the fact that such ideas can be toyed around with. In a nutshell, you are able to claim that this conceptual device or in this story’s case, the vehicle, will come with promises that are impossible to deliver at this point in time simply because current day technology has yet to be “exploited” to such levels. Well, the Mercedes Benz GLA […]

01/15/2013, Looks can be deceiving, and when you take a glance at the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, it might not seem like it at first, but when tested, it will clearly take the lead by being the world’s most aerodynamic production car, period. This fierce looking compact sedan will have a drag coefficient of 0.23, making it the world’s most aerodynamic series production car as it hits the US later this September. […]
04/11/2012, The Mercedes-Benz G Class might not be the best looking Benz out there in the market, but it certainly has not reached the end of the road. Yet. The 2013 model has just been unveiled, and the overall look certainly resembled its great ancestor all those years ago – from 1979, to be exact. However, the inside of the G Class has certainly kept up with the times, sporting a […]
02/24/2012, If you were planning on getting yourself a Mercedes-Benz A-Class in the future, don’t be surprised if your iPhone’s Siri voice assistant feature will be integrated into the car’s infotainment system.

02/07/2012, The Mercedes-Benz is one luxury vehicle that shows the world you “have arrived” at your station in life, but there is a new feature introduced in the upcoming SL class models that has gained its fair share of detractors – as it enables the driver to update their Facebook status despite being behind the wheel.

01/15/2012, Fancy driving around a vehicle using nothing but gesture controls? That thought sounds a little scary, and if the steering wheel still causes problems for some when driving, resulting in accidents, who knows what might happen when the world moves on to a gesture control-based vehicle? I’d loathe to own an insurance company then. Mercedes-Benz looks to the future with their conceptual gesture control idea that might just grace our […]
01/11/2012, [CES 2012] Remember our story last week about Mercedes-Benz ready to make a splash at this year’s CES? Well, it seems that their mBrace2 system has proved to be quite a hit, where it merges telematics and infotainment into a single system, receiving connectivity in the form of an embedded 3G modem. The mBrace2 is being prepared to launch alongside the 2013 SL this spring, and will also be a […]
