The artist formerly known as ML or M-Class can now be found in an even more refined state called GLE. I test-drove the big turbo-diesel 400d model.
C stands for Compact Class, yet this evergreen Mercedes-Benz sales champion tends to follow in its bigger siblings’ footsteps by introducing many innovations to the compact executive sedan market. NamWheels brings you some highlights of the new W206 model while recapping those of its ancestors…
