It is 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG, completed by a unique hood and wider fenders. The machine is 5.5-liter V8. With twin turbo and direct injection, it produces 550 hp of power and 590 lb-ft of torque gives you the optional performance package.

The two engines are set to AMG’s compact, lightweight, quick-shifting MCT seven-speed transmission.

2012 Geneva Motor Show: 2012 Mercedes-Benz A-Class

We don’t know about you folks, but we think that the 2012 Mercedes-Benz A-Class doesn’t radiance what the compact hatchback should be. It is kind of weird, but try to compare it with the prototype where the three-pointed German automaker deployed it for test drive. This the 3 rd generation of the A-Class which got its proper and official unveiled at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.

The 2012 Mercedes-Benz A-Class is constructed from the same MFA modular front architecture of the B-Class. The 1,780mm wheelbase is offering you good performance from the short overhangs and sporty design. You see, we knew it that there is something special about this compact German hatchback and it is the sportiness.

As if this is not sporty enough for you, the powerful version of the 2012 A-Class is currently undergoing development on the AMG division where the total power output sets at 211 horsepower.

The engine which powers up the 2012 A-Class hatchback according to is the 1.6L turbo which provides you with 122 horsepower as the total power output for the A180. Need more power? There is another total power output for you and that is the 156 horsepower and if you look for the range topper, the A250 with more aggressive bodywork surely suits your sporty style.

These are the petrol or the gasoline lines, are you ready for the diesel powerplant choices?

For the diesel, the 2012 Mercedes-Benz A-Class is powered by the 1.8L CDI for the A180 with total power output is 109 horsepower and if you buy the A200 compact hatchback with CDI engine, you can get 136 horsepower. The most powerful diesel engine holds by the A220 with the 2.2L CDI with power output at 170 horsepower. The entertainment system for this compact German hatchback is what Mercedes refers to “iPod on wheels” where they infuse the integration of cool infotainment system on the dashboard.

The main design for the interior of the 2012 A-Class hatchback is derived directly from the B-Class but the A-Class model has the more luxury premium feeling. If you go for the optional AMG package, you can get a new grille mesh, a full body kit, and larger wheels. For the interior, the AMG version of the 2012 Mercedes-Benz A-Class caries carbon fiber for the dashboard and sporty seats which are the same with the ones on the SLK roadster.

2013 Mercedes Benz Viano

You don’t think that Volkswagen is the only German automaker which can produce van, do you? Well, look what we have here… series of spyshots where the prototype of 2013 Mercedes Benz Viano deployed for winter test. It is not all of a sudden the three-pointed automaker shifted their vision to produce van, but Mercedes does has van division where they got new director which formerly assigned at the AMG division – Volker Mornhinweg.

The pedestrian protection standard on the 2013 Mercedes Benz Viano is a car-like front end which we think will score pretty good points from Euro NCAP. For engine and department part, we have no clue what so ever on what engine which Mercedes-Benz will put on. There is no chance this German van will be getting turbo for its engine, although we scooped up one unofficial engine which available and matches the 2013 Viano – it’s the BlueEfficiency diesel engine.
