2000 Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG 4MATIC Estate

I love the fact that the only way to get 4MATIC all-wheel-drive on the W210 Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG was to buy it in wagon form. Not just any wagon, as some were still rear-wheel drive, but rather you had to option one with 4MATIC. Naturally, this is a huge deal for traction given the massive amount of torque these and also for usability given this is a wagon after all. This 2000 up for sale outside of Zürich seemed to take advantage of that usability judging by the number of miles it racked up.

2004 Mercedes-Benz C240 4MATIC Wagon

Nobody circles the wagons like the … Mercedes-Benz wagons. I’m sure you know what I’m trying to get at here. In all seriousness, if you want resale value, go ahead and grab yourself a wagon from basically any generation. It’s even true of today’s bottom-of-the-barrel offering, the W203 C240 4MATIC wagon. I’ve ranted for years about how the W203 was a real low point for Mercedes-Benz in the modern era with its utterly bland styling, horrifically cheap interior, and lackluster powertrains. The wagon doesn’t alter that formula, but at least you have the utility of all that extra space. As you can probably tell, this is not an attractive color combination. Travertine beige over Java vinyl. Don’t let the fancy name of “Java” fool you either, it’s just beige.

2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA35 AMG

I am admittedly not a huge fan of the Mercedes-Benz CLA/GLA Class. They certainly were built to be entry-level cars and because of this, were a huge hit. Mercedes-Benz USA boss Steve Cannon stated “This is our best launch in 20 years,” when talking about the CLA because people love cheap stuff. It is no mistake you will see these most often during your daily travels, despite their lackluster offerings. However, they sell and Mercedes-AMG even took a handful of them to produce the CLA35 and CLA45. Today’s car, the CLA35, packs the turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four that thankfully sends power to all four wheels and not just the front like the rest of the model range. However, that interior still kills me. Let me show you what I mean.

2022 Mercedes-Benz C300 4Matic

Well, the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class is here. The 2022 model year launched the W206 chassis, which is an all-new design inside and out. It carries over the rounded shape on the exterior and inside is a light copy of the current S-Class with it’s heavy use of screens and a waterfall-style layout directly into the center console. All the current cars are powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-4 with a 48-volt hybrid system, which I’m sure will be easy to diagnose and repair in the year 2029. Three trim levels are available with the “Premium”, “Executive”, and “Pinnacle”, the latter of which tops out at $48,550. However, this being a new car in 2022 and not for sale at a factory dealer, you can guess the price…

2015 Mercedes-Benz S550 Coupe

Just in under the wire, we might have one of my most favorite cars of the year. It isn’t the rarest or even the most exciting car to drive, but it is one I would be totally happy driving 365 days a year in 2022. This is a 2015 Mercedes-Benz S550 4MATIC Coupe finished in Emerald Green Metallic over a Designo brown leather interior. I like to describe it as a torpedo of luxury. This is a car that hangs in the class of Bentley Continental GT and Rolls-Royce Wraith for a fraction of the price, while looking like it totally belongs. It is hard to to believe this car is already seven years old, but that just means it isn’t $150,000 anymore. Even better, it’s got just 6,300 miles.
