2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS SUVThis year, Mercedes-Benz saw a worldwide rise in sales, and has officially surpassed BMW. Here at RBM of Alpharetta, we could go on and on about why Mercedes-Benz is a winner in its segment, as well as the entirety of the auto industry. To give you a quick overview of the brand’s strong points, we’ve narrowed our lengthy list down to five traits that make Mercedes-Benz vehicles preferable to those of other top luxury brands. Look below to see why drivers continue to choose Mercedes-Benz over the competition!

1.   Responsive Performance

At the wheel of a Mercedes-Benz, the roadways are yours to explore. All Mercedes-Benz sedans, coupes, SUVs, and convertibles are furnished with advanced engines – all of which are harnessed by efficient, noise-reducing 7- or 9-speed automatic transmissions. For power and handling that adapt to your driving style, every vehicle offers a variety of standard and optional performance features, such as 4MATIC® all-wheel drive, DYNAMIC SELECT®, AIRMATIC® suspension, and much, much more.

2.   Distinctive Styling

Even the unaffiliated recognize the Three-Pointed Star. While every Mercedes-Benz is truly unique, the style and charm of the brand is always recognizable. Taut contouring, dramatic air intakes, blazing headlights and taillights, side mirror-integrated turning signals, and a Star-stamped or classic multi-bar grille instantly set a Mercedes-Benz apart from the crowd. The exterior of every Mercedes-Benz can be further enlivened with an eye-catching color, such as Jupiter Red, Diamond Silver, or Lunar Blue.

3.   Pioneering Technology

Long before the arrival of remote start, smartphone integration, etc., Mercedes-Benz incorporated technologies years ahead of its time. The same rings true for today’s Mercedes-Benz vehicles. Take the E-Class Sedan, for example. As arguably the techiest vehicle of its kind, the E-Class includes 64-color LED ambient lighting, a 12.3-inch COMAND® display, a touchpad controller, and Car-to-X Communication – a new technology that allows E-Class drivers to exchange traffic and weather updates and warnings.

4.   Unparalleled Safety

With so many systems working to protect you at any given time, the cabin of a Mercedes-Benz is one of the safest places to be! Multi-airbag protection, 3-point seatbelts with ETDs, Electronic Stability Program, andmbrace® with Roadside Assistance and Emergency SOS are staples. What’s more, driver assists, such as a pre-collision system (PRESAFE®) and a forward collision mitigation system with automatic braking (Active Brake Assist) are standard across most of the lineup – a scarcity even for the luxury segment.

5.   Mercedes-AMG® Lineup

In 1967, two engineers, Has-Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher, began testing racing engines for Mercedes-Benz vehicles. Fast forward to present day, Mercedes-AMG® is still alive and well – offering a blend of motorsports power and industry-leading luxury. True to its founding “One Man, One Engine” philosophy, every AMG® engine is hand-crafted by a Master Engine Builder. In addition, most Mercedes-AMG® models are distinguishable from their non-AMG® siblings by their wider stance and twin power domes.
