Mercedes-Benz has long been a symbol of luxury and refinement, and the 2017 E-Class is no exception. The 2017 E-Class ushers in a number of changes, beginning with a redesigned exterior featuring innovative “twin torch” headlamps, gracefully flowing body lines and a distinctly Mercedes-Benz front grille. The body is slightly larger than its predecessor, with a wheelbase increase of 2.6 inches and nearly two inches of added body length. The E-Class is clearly built for luxury, but Mercedes hasn’t sacrificed a sleek, sporty aesthetic in the process.

The main attractions, however, are mostly inside the cabin. The cockpit is packed full with features and technologies that allow the E-Class to live up to its branding as the “smartest” sedan ever built. Capitalizing on the latest trends in automation, Mercedes-Benz has fitted the E-Class with its Drive Pilot technology, which allows for up to a full minute of unassisted driving. The system employs an interconnected web of technologies, including a front-facing radar, a stereo camera in the windshield and rear-mounted sensors, to provide an intelligent, automated driving experience that can even switch lanes automatically simply by using the turn signal.

Along with the Drive Pilot system, the E-Class also features a whole host of other automated systems and driving aids. Active Brake Assist is able to activate the brakes if the driver fails to stop at an intersection with cross traffic. Evasive Steering Assist provides a helping hand for stabilizing the vehicle if the driver is forced to swerve quickly to avoid obstacles or other road hazards.

The Pre-Safe Impulse Side system activates inflatable bladders near the front seats to protect occupants from a side-on collision, while Mercedes’ Pre-Safe Sound feature plays pink noise immediately once an impending collision is detected, which helps to protect occupants from potential hearing damage during a crash. It’s clear that the Mercedes-Benz engineers have thought of virtually everything with the E-Class, and the result is a brilliant bundle of technology that deftly solves problems most drivers didn’t even know existed.

Of course, all the tech features in the world don’t mean anything if the car doesn’t deliver a solid driving experience, and the E-Class certainly does. The 2017 E-Class features a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which is mated with the same nine-speed automatic transmission used in all of Mercedes’ recent releases. It won’t be confused with a high-end sports car, but the spunky turbo engine offers an excellent blend of performance and efficiency. Handling is smooth and responsive, lending a sporty feel to go along with the excellent ride quality that is typical of Mercedes-Benz.

Stepping inside, the 2017 E-Class is tremendously well-appointed. Attractive open-grain wood trim accents abound, with a logically designed cockpit and a spacious passenger cabin built from high-quality materials. Optional quilted and perforated leather tops off perhaps the most luxurious cabin in its class. The crowning jewel is a 12.3-inch infotainment screen built into the center stack, which puts a dizzying amount of information and features at the driver’s fingertips. An optional upgrade swaps this out for a single display that spans well over half of the dash.

Perhaps best of all, the 2017 E-Class comes with a slightly lower price tag than its predecessor as well. With distinctive styling, a class-leading luxury interior and an unprecedented level of technology and safety features, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class is truly in a class of its own. Drivers on the lookout for a smart, stylish, efficient sedan that doesn’t sacrifice an enjoyable driving experience need to look no further than the venerable E-Class.

The Maserati brand has joined the SUV ranks by adding a new model to its luxury line-up. It is the full-size 2017 Levante. There are three trims to select from including the base, Levante S, and Levante Diesel. The sculptured chassis lives up to its pedigree. Driver expectations will be surpassed with rich interiors, august power-trains, and cutting-edge technology features. Buyers in this market will have no hesitation with the nearly $80,000 starting MSRP. The engineers made sure that it will be money well-spent.

INTERIOR

Five occupants will experience pure grandeur with more than rich leather, power, and memory attributes. A partnership with ErmenegildoZegna translates to natural fibers of Zegna Mulberry Silk incorporated throughout the cabin. Inserts are hand-sewn into seats, overhead light fixtures, roof linings, door panels, and sunshades. There are accents of authentic wood with the brand’s emblem monogramed in front and rear headrests. Additional details include platinum inspired metals adorning door handles and steering wheels. Comfortable seats use ergonomic technology in all positions with rear seating folding to a full-bench configuration for more cargo space.

EXTERIOR

Buyers can choose from a dozen metallic colors including Rosso Rubino, Blu Passione, and others. Wheels come in 19 inch Zefiro, 20 inch Nereo, and 21 inch Anteo with color-complementing Bremko brake calipers. The five eye-catching hues are Grigio, Rosso, Giallo, Blu, and Nero. Sleek, aerodynamic exteriors have three air vents on the front-side panels while showcasing the bold chrome grills and trademark emblems. The fan-like spoiler serves as an outside sun visor. Dual exhausts and power lift gates blend sporty and convenience seamlessly.

PERFORMANCE

An abundance of prowess is found in the 3.0 V6 single or dual turbo-powered engines. Drivers will experience an exhilarating performance from 250hp or 275hp in diesel power-trains or 350hp or 430hp for gas power-trains. The all-wheel drive has sequential sport shift with limited slip differential in an eight speed transmission. A mode select feature enhances this further with a comprehensive suspension system. It consists of three layers of driving agility with touring, auto-leveling, and adaptive suspension engineering. There are plenty of off-roading opportunities as well with two off-road settings that tow 6,000 pounds.

TECHNOLOGY

A mixture of well-appointed analog and digital displays highlights superb craftsmanship in the dash. The 8.4 inch touchscreen syncs with on-board computers providing access to automatic climate control and satellite navigation. Smartphones on the Apple and Android platform integrate with auxiliary outlets, SD card readers, and USB ports. State-of-the-art Maserati Touch Control (MTC) easily plays music or displays films and images. There are CD and DVD players attached to Karman Kardon or Bowers and Wilkins sound systems. The sounds from eight speakers can also be controlled via steering wheel mounted controls.

FEATURES

Opulent standard and optional features are tastefully designed in each category. Power, auto-dimming, and heated door mirrors, fog lights, fully auto and delay-off Bi-Xenon headlights, and a headlight cleaner are exterior characterstics. Rain sensor and variable setting wipers and power moon roofs are more polished details. Interior attributes have rearview mirrors with auto-dimming functionality, garage door openers, integrated GPS, and versatile steering columns. Drivers can gain entrance using keyless entry to all these standard features. The list of optional goodies comes in packages with skid plates, spoilers, adjustable pedals, and distance pacing cruise control to name a few.

SAFETY

With Maserati vehicles, safety innovation is a given. The investment protection features include an immobilizer and security system. Innovation is kicked up a notch with advances in warning systems. There is nothing passive about the Blind Spot Alert, Lane Departure, and Rear Cross Path Sensors as they add a bit of intuitive responsiveness on the road. Autonomous driving exceeds expectations with Forward Collision Warning and Adaptive Cruise Control monitoring the vehicles out-front and applies brakes to prevent a crash.

The only thing left to do is test drive the new 2017 Maserati Levante. After you put it through the paces, go ahead and sign on the dotted line to own one. Financing or leasing this masterpiece is an option and VIP Auto is best equipped to find you a paramount deal.

The S-Class line of vehicles acts as one of BMWs flagship lines. All the vehicles that bear the S-Class moniker are guaranteed to be luxurious, capable and performance-ready. The convertible has long been a symbol of prosperity in America, and the 2017 S-Class Cabriolet is no exception. With sculpted lines, superior stitched seating and unmatched craftsmanship, this convertible is set to elevate your driving experience.

Beautiful Inside and Out

The moment you set eyes on this convertible, you’ll know you’re about to experience something truly remarkable. The S-Class offers a smoothly sculpted aerodynamic exterior that not only looks good but works tirelessly to reduce cabin noise and improve handling. Wind literally glides off this vehicle, and you’ll revel in the breeze with the all-season power soft top that is made of three layers of material. The top retracts in less than 20 seconds, and you can lower the top while moving, provided you’re driving under 28 miles per hour. A proprietary AIRCAP system works tirelessly to reduce top-down turbulence, so you can enjoy a thrilling ride even at top speeds.

A convertible means you take only those with you that can fit comfortably in the vehicle, and this four-seat convertible makes the ride extremely comfortable for your passengers. You’ll enjoy a fine mix of hand-polished wood, exquisite leather and unparalleled technologies to make your drive more enjoyable. Hands-free systems make it possible to communicate while keeping your eyes on the road. An advanced climate control system adapts to the position of the top, so you’re always cool.

Orchestrating Your Drive

The S-Class Convertible comes with two engine options to customize your vehicle based on your needs. You can choose the 449-horsepower system that gets better fuel economy, or you can choose to go all out with a 577-horsepower system that feels like a virtuoso pianist is at the helm gliding through gears with ease. Advanced technologies make the engine capable of providing millisecond-level precision and outstanding performance. The system rounds itself out with an air suspension system that is designed to leap forward onto the road like a panther in pursuit of its prey. You’ll barely feel a thing as you zip down the road in this performance-oriented vehicle.

The AMG S63 Cabriolet goes beyond your expectations with a first-time, all-wheel drive vehicle. This vehicle is designed with performance in mind, and you’ll be able to churn through all seven precision-tuned gears without breaking a sweat. The vehicle can get from zero to 60 in 3.8 seconds, and you’ll love the stability and control of this vehicle. Combined with other innovative luxury features like the laser-cut holes in the windshield wipers and a host of features that are designed to pamper you on your drive, this vehicle simply can’t be matched for versatility, performance and style.

Advanced Safety and Security

The S-Class Convertible offers a host of passive and active safety features that are designed to keep you safe on the road. The highly rigid body structure is just the beginning. You’ll also enjoy advanced restraints that adapt to the impact of a collision and a full set of airbags located conveniently throughout the cabin. When it comes to roll-over protection, you’ll love the dual pop-up roll bars should you ever find yourself in a situation where they are needed.

The vehicle is also extremely smart. There are various driver assistance programs that can help you avoid an accident, see more around you and get a better view of your surroundings. Radar, a 360-degree network of cameras around the vehicle and other scanners can alert you to danger and give you that crucial few extra seconds to respond.

The 2017 S-Class Cabriolet is an exceptional vehicle that can be either financed or leased. Find out more by requesting a test drive to make sure this vehicle fits your needs. This vehicle is a premiere option that is designed to make every trip more enjoyable, safer and productive.
