Should You Buy A Mercedes-Benz For Your Next Car?

Lots of people admire and buy Mercedes-Benz cars. Janis Joplin even asked the good Lord above if He could buy her one; I guess she didn’t like her Porsche 356 cabriolet!

The German car manufacturer has been in the business of making cars since 1926, and are one-third of the “big three” German luxury carmakers (Audi and BMW being the other two). Not a day goes by where you don’t hear about how Mercedes-Benz are developing or launching new models.


If you are in the market for a new car, and you would like to upgrade to a luxurious German-built car, should you be considering a Mercedes-Benz? I think you should, and here’s why.

They appeal to people younger than
55 years of age

Despite the firm’s technological innovations, one of their criticisms up until a few years ago was that the car they produced were solely aimed at older motorists.

I am pleased to report that Mercedes-Benz have shaken off that “grandad” image that has been, unfortunately, associated with them for many generations, and there are now lots of exciting new cars out there aimed at people of all ages.

For example, the new A-Class is a small family car designed to compete with the likes of the BMW 1 Series and the Audi A3. And if you prefer something more sporty, there is always the SLS AMG models, like the one pictured above!

Young and growing families often need practical cars, but don’t want to drive around in a “boring-looking” car. The CLS Shooting Brake isn’t just a practical estate car; it’s very stylish, powerful and is poised to take on cars such as the Jaguar XF Sportbrake.

They feature amazing technology

Most car manufacturers fit the same features into their vehicles as their competitors, such as climate control, Bluetooth-enabled stereos, daytime running lights and so forth.

But what sets Mercedes-Benz apart from the rest is the fact they are technology leaders, not followers! In the past, the carmaker developed some pretty useful technology which is now commonplace in most cars, such as ABS.

These days, you can find some amazing technology featured as standard in today’s Mercedes-Benz cars, such as cloud-based multimedia entertainment systems, active parking assist, adaptive braking, downhill speed regulation, and more!

If you are a gadget geek, or you simply have a lust for driving a car that encompasses the latest technology, owning a Mercedes-Benz is going to be the right choice for you!

Model availability

Because Mercedes-Benz is such a popular car marque, there is a veritable plethora of new and used models out there for you to choose.

Whether you make your purchase from a Mercedes-Benz main dealer or an independent specialist such as, you will find the car of your dreams quickly and easily.
