Mercedes-Benz Classes

Mercedes-Benz is a much-celebrated name in the automotive industry. The company traces its origins to 1886. That's the year Karl Benz's first internal combustion engine was patented, as well as the same year Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach converted a stagecoach to run on a petrol engine. The first Mercedes-Benz brand name vehicles were produced in 1926, though it took until 1958 for US buyers to have the opportunity to purchase one on American soil.

The intervening years have seen the automaker create numerous safety and technology innovations. Many have since been adopted by other brands after making their Mercedes-Benz debut. The goal today remains the same as when the company was initially founded: to build the world's most desirable vehicles.

Why Mercedes-Benz Separates Their Models into Classes

If you're not familiar with the nomenclature, the Mercedes-Benz naming conventions can seem a bit obscure. However, it's pretty straightforward. Each model class contains a different body type and size of vehicle. Here's an example. Let's say you're considering the luxury SUV lineup. Both GLA-Class and G-Class models fit into that category, but there's an easily-noticed difference between the two classes. The GLA-Class models are subcompact luxury SUVs, while the G-Class is a mid-size luxury SUV.
