Mercedes-Benz

Mercedes-Benz can trace its roots all the way back to the first automobile itself, back in 1886 - but these days the firm is well established as one of the big three premium brands, alongside BMW and Audi.

As with both of its rivals, Mercedes has expanded its line-up into countless niches over the past few years. The pinnacle of its range is the S-Class, the benchmark for luxury saloons, but it extends all the way down to the A-Class, a rival for the VW Golf and Audi A3.

Executive saloons remain at the heart of Merc's model range, with the C-Class set to be joined by an all-new E-Class in 2016, and the more style-focused four-doors, the CLA and CLS, slotting in between the more established shapes. You can get estate versions of all of these cars, too.

Mercedes hasn't been afraid to jump aboard the SUV bandwagon, though; it sells a beefed-up A-Class, the GLA, and a BMW X3-rivalling mid-sized SUV, the GLC. At the top of the range there's the GLE, offered as a regular SUV and as a coupe SUV, and the seven-seat GLS.

The company has a performance division, AMG, which develops tuned versions of pretty much the entire line-up. It also puts its name to Merc's answer to the Porsche 911, the Mercedes-AMG GT.
