Sprint Review: 2019 Mercedes-Benz C200 Cabriolet AMG Line

Yoh, that’s pretty. How much does it cost?

You need to know: Three times. That’s how often I got asked about this car’s price in less than 12 hours. A lot of that may be down to this press unit’s striking combination of black metallic paint, sleek light clusters on every corner, pincushion Mercedes radiator grill, pale beige interior and AMG Line goodies.

Tested: 2018 Mercedes-AMG E63 S 4Matic+  

The absurd nerves

Beginning of this week I picked up my new driver’s license; well, the umpteenth re-issue of a document which is almost 25 years old and in severe danger of being taken away. Forever. You see, I’ve been driving the new Mercedes-AMG E63 S 4Matic+ and it’s completely and utterly insane.

C43 AMG: old vs new

W202 vs C205

I appear to have some magical and completely spontaneous connection with Edinburgh. My sister-in-law stems from the Kingdom of Fife, my wife has a few roots there and also found her business niche in the Scottish capital, and as far as I can tell, my third-youngest cousin has mastered just about every course offered by the city’s university.

Launched: Mercedes-Benz GLA facelift

Be Young

Presented in 2013 for the first time, the GLA was introduced as a new compact SUV range to the A-class Mercedes line-up. Becoming considerably popular in China, USA, Germany and Great Britain, the manufacturer has made quite an impact as the GLA proves relatively small from the outside, yet is spacious in design. Combined with the versatility of the model on any terrain, it is understandable that Mercedes have sold over 2 million if these models. Four years after the first GLA was launched, what can you expect from the new GLA facelift? Is it worth it and has the GLA range undergone considerable changes?

Launched: Alfa Romeo Giulia

Bellissima! We drive Alfa’s gorgeous new Giulia.

South Africans and Namibians have both had a long-lasting love affair with Alfa Romeo’s delectable Giulia. The passionate relationship (for Alfisti, at least) started 55 years ago when the original Giulia, the Tipo 105 Berlina, and its subsequent sub-types became the first Alfa model range to be built in South Africa in substantial numbers.
