Adding to their current wave of new models, Mercedes has taken the wraps off the 2015 C-Class ($TBA), and its styling looks remarkably similar to that of the 2014 S-Class, albeit in a much smaller package.  To help differentiate the C-Class class from their other entry-level sedan – the CLA-Class – Mercedes has opted to enlarge the model, making it 95mm longer and 40mm wider than its predecessor.  Power will be provided by your choice of either  a 235-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 or a 329-hp 3.0-liter turbocharged V-6 paired with Mercedes' 4MATIC all-wheel drive.  Inside a completely redesigned interior is roomier and offers a host of tech options, including an optional Intelligent Drive safety system that includes Active Lane Keeping Assist, Active Blind Spot Assist and DISTRONIC PLUS adaptive cruise control, while Mercedes' PRE-SAFE and COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS will come standard.  Look for the 2015 C-Class to hit dealerships next fall.

Mercedes AMG is known for packing an incredible amount of power and performance into Mercedes' standard luxury lineup, but as such, their designs tend to be more understated than some of their high performance competitors.  As part of Sony's upcoming GranTurismo 6 video game, however, Mercedes' designers weren't bound by their typical design rules, allowing them free reign to build the supercar you wished Mercedes would produce.  The result is this:  the Mercedes AMG Vision Gran Turismo.  And it looks absolutely gorgeous.  Unfortunately, a concept model won't actually be built by Mercedes, but in game, the Mercedes AMG Vision Gran Turismo notes an AMG V8 engine delivering 577 bhp and 590 lb-ft of torque in a 3,053 lbs body along with an AMG performance braking system.  If you're an AMG fan, it's the car you wish Mercedes AMG would build.
