These luxury vehicles typically offer a plush ride, quietness, an impeccable interior, advanced safety systems, and crisp handling. Models such as the C-, E-, and S-Class sedans, and the GLS and GLE SUVs, have performed very well in our tests. High-performance AMG versions are fierce racetrack machines. However, some entry-level models, namely the CLA sedan and GLA SUV, don’t live up to the brand’s premium promise. Both are too snug, come with less-than-luxurious interiors, and suffer from a stiff ride and uneven power delivery. Reliability has been a sore point for many models, with the GLC performing particularly poorly in our most recent survey. On the other hand, the E-Class has been quite reliable.
