Leaving industry competitors in the dust, Mercedes plans to harness that commitment with reality. Mercedes Santa Barbara is excited to be a part of the journey.

2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS450 Offers the Truck Experience in the Form of an SUV

2017-03-06T13:35:45+00:00March 6th, 2017|Mercedes Benz, New Vehicles|

Mercedes-Benz successfully transfers the driving experience of a truck into the new 2017 GLS450 SUV, combining the best of both worlds.

Santa Barbara Auto Group is pleasantly surprised with the release of the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS450. This behemoth cross-over SUV, offers three rows of seating with exceptional cabin space. The fairly straight-edged, old-school body style relies more on rulers and levels than the majority of its modern rivals, exuding an air of confidence and strength. It’s difficult to create a three-row crossover that doesn’t appear to be a block on wheels. However, the engineers at Mercedes-Benz managed to blend new and old design concepts to create a cohesive compromise that makes the 2017 GLS450 the best-looking vehicle in its class. Santa Barbara Auto Group, an authorized Mercedes-Benz dealer, is excited to offer customers the 2017 GLS450 because it’s the kind of vehicle that fills the gap between trucks and mid-size crossovers for undecided drivers.

Comfort on the Road and in the Vehicle

One of the most impressive attributes of the 2017 GLS450 is that it packs a shockingly smooth ride. Andrew Krok from the automotive web platform Road Show took the GLS450 for a test drive through the reputably calloused and beaten roads of Metro-Detroit. He claims that the roads became much easier to deal with as the SUV absorbed the shock of Detroit’s cratered streets with a sort of soft and forgiving body roll.

With a 363hp, V-6 engine that boasts 369lb-ft of torque the 2017 GLS450 is strong and capable, while giving fair consideration to its fuel-efficiency. The addition of the new nine-speed automatic transmission keeps RPM’s quite low for the sake of fuel-economy, without sacrificing the ability to smoothly and quickly shift when prompt acceleration is necessary or just desired.

The interior of the vehicle matches the vehicle’s exterior by only modernizing the aspects that truly matter. Mercedes-Benz added their signature COMAND infotainment system controlled by a touchpad, a newer steering wheel, and conveniently place USB ports in the center counsel. The first and second rows in the vehicle allow for ample leg and head space, while the third is only slightly smaller beating out the rivaling Cadillac Escalade and Infiniti QX80. Thanks to power switches in the trunk to fold down or tilt the third-row, making space for luggage or groceries has never been easier.

Our Mercedes-Benz team at Santa Barbara Auto Group is excited to show off the 2017 GLS450, so be sure to come in for a test drive and see if this vehicle is the right fit for you.

2016 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Earns a Top Safety Pick+ Rating Through IIHS

2017-01-12T09:54:06+00:00January 12th, 2017|Santa Barbara Auto Group|

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the Mercedes-Benz C-Class their highest safety rating for 2016.

With the winter months just around the corner, driving conditions will inevitably become more dangerous. It’s comforting to know that in the event of a crash or potential crash, your vehicle will protect you as best as it can. Drivers of the 2016 Mercedes-Benz C-Class are offered this peace of mind. The 2016 C-Class was awarded a Top Safety Pick+ rating through the IIHS. In order to be awarded this rating, the vehicle must earn good ratings in the five crashworthiness tests—small overlap front, moderate overlap front, sides, roof strength, and head restraints—and an advanced or superior rating for front crash prevention, meaning the ability of the vehicle’s technology to avoid collision or lessen the impact. The 2016 Mercedes-Benz C-Class excelled in nearly every category.

C-Class Safety Features and Technology

If you’re a driver who is often carting around your family, or you’re looking for a vehicle for your child who’s a new driver, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class is the best choice. When conducting a crash test, the IIHS found that the C-Class only allowed a 4-inch maximum intrusion into the cabin in the instance of a front-end collision. This number is drastically lower than the previous model’s 20-inch intrusion. Also, the IIHS recorded a strength-to-weight ratio of 7 when examining the vehicle’s roof strength. This number is amongst the highest ever recorded, implying that in the event of a crash or loss of control leading to the vehicle rolling, the 2016 C-Class is most prepared to protect its passengers.

For further peace of mind, the 2016 C-Class comes equipped with the Mercedes-Benz Collision Prevention system. This system uses radar to constantly monitor closing speeds between your vehicle and the moving vehicles around you. If the system decides that a collision is possible, it will assist in applying the brake. In addition to this, Mercedes-Benz offers several technology packages that enhance the vehicle’s intelligent safety systems.

It’s news like this that makes Santa Barbara Auto Group proud to be an authorized Mercedes-Benz dealer. Our dealership serves families from all over Southern California, and to know that we offer one of the safest vehicles available is very rewarding. Visit the Mercedes-Benz team at Santa Barbara Auto Group to learn more about the safety features of the C-Class and other Mercedes-Benz models that might interest you.

Mercedes-Benz Eliminates Mileage Limits for Warranties on Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles

2016-10-31T12:10:41+00:00October 31st, 2016|Certified Pre-Owned, Maintenance, Warranties|

Get the most out of your certified pre-owned vehicle at Mercedes-Benz Santa Barbara with their new unlimited mileage warranties.

Mercedes-Benz Santa Barbara is now offering drivers of certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicles unlimited mileage warranties. Mercedes-Benz Santa Barbara doesn’t think drivers “should be punished for putting miles on [their] vehicle, but rather rewarded for taking full advantage of the luxury, performance, and style offered by a Mercedes-Benz pre-owned vehicle”. After revolutionizing the auto-industry with innovative automobiles, Mercedes-Benz decided it was time to revolutionize the warranty aspect of buying a vehicle as well. The unlimited mileage warranty program allows Mercedes-Benz drivers the confidence of knowing that if anything were to happen to within the time restraints of the warranty, they are covered regardless of miles.

How Do Unlimited Mileage Warranties Work?

Mercedes-Benz knows how frustrating it can be to feel forced to watch your mile count while trying to get the most out of your warranty program. To solve this problem, Mercedes-Benz eliminated mileage limits on all Mercedes-Benz certified pre-owned vehicle warranties. The standard warranty offered on Mercedes-Benz certified pre-owned vehicles is the Base Limited Warranty which lasts for one year regardless of miles—in addition to any time remaining on the initial owner’s 4 year/50,000-mile warranty that comes standard on any new vehicle purchase. Once the one-year base term runs out on any Mercedes-Benz certified pre-owned vehicle, the driver has the option to take advantage of the Extended Warranty Program. Depending on the needs of the driver, this program extends the warranty for either one or two more years. The extended warranty is an incredible value at an affordable price.

What is Covered Under Warranty?

  • Engine and Drivetrain
  • Convertible/Retractable Top Systems
  • Central-Locking System
  • Steering, Suspension, and Brakes
  • Electrical System
  • Audio and Navigation Systems
  • Climate-Control System
  • Other Components and Further Details

Your Mercedes-Benz certified pre-owned vehicle warranty begins the minute the previous warranty ends—or if that warranty has already ended, then it begins upon the date of purchase. There is no deductible and your warranty can be redeemed at any of the 300 certified Mercedes-Benz dealerships across the country. There’s no need to ration your miles anymore. Visit Mercedes-Benz Santa Barbara and pick out a Mercedes-Benz certified pre-owned vehicle with an unlimited mileage warranty so you can drive with confidence.

130 Years Of Mercedes-Benz Automotive Pioneering History

2016-09-20T11:07:05+00:00September 20th, 2016|Automotive History, Mercedes Benz|

Mercedes-Benz has a history of making automotive pioneering history. The first car bears the number DRP 37435, the reference under which the patent for the “gas-powered vehicle” filed by Carl Benz on January 29, 1886. Carl Benz’s ability to be an early adopter of ideas lives on today. His entrepreneurial vision with innovation and creativity has set the stage for years to come.  Since the first car, Mercedes-Benz has set the pace for all motorized vehicles.

The Mercedes-Benz innovations and achievements continue 130 years later with over 100,000 patents. Much of this is embedded in the culture of the company with Carl Benz’s quote, “The love of inventing never dies.”

The Timeline of Break-Through Safety Innovations

1886 The First Motor Vehicles
The self-propelled “Motorwagen” with a rear-mounted single-cylinder engine.

1931 4-Wheel Independent Suspension
The Mercedes 170 features the first-ever fully independent suspension, which allows each wheel to respond individually.

1967 Safety Steering
All Mercedes-Benz models are equipped with a new safety steering system as standard. The safety steering system reduces the risk of injury upon impact with the steering wheel.

1978 Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS)
ABS helps the driver retain steering control under heavy braking by preventing wheel lockup.

1999 Active Body Control
This is the Mercedes-Benz brand name used to describe hydraulic fully active suspension. It allows control of the vehicle body motions virtually eliminating body roll in many driving situations.

2002 Pre-Safe
A groundbreaking system to help passengers prepare for an accident before it happens. PRE-SAFE can detect that certain types of collision might be imminent. In the precious moments before impact, it can snug the front seat belts and adjust the front head restraints to help optimize the effectiveness of the restraint systems.

2010 Attention Assist
Attention Assist measures over 70 data points in the first few minutes of a drive. This helps the detect signs of driver drowsiness and audibly alert the driver to take a break.

The Pioneering Future Will Continue

The Mercedes-Benz Safety, Design, Performance, and vehicle Environment systems will continue to show “the love of inventing” from Carl Benz.

Enjoy Worry-Free Maintenance with Mercedes-Benz at Santa Barbara Auto Group

2016-08-03T09:32:31+00:00August 3rd, 2016|Maintenance, Mercedes Benz, service|

Mercedes-Benz owners can enjoy peace of mind with Mercedes-Benz Prepaid Maintenance available now on new car purchases at Santa Barbara Auto Group.

When it comes to taking care of your Mercedes-Benz, there is an intelligent and convenient way to do it. At Santa Barbara Auto Group, we encourage drivers to consider the Mercedes-Benz Prepaid Maintenance program to ensure they get the best pricing and care for their vehicle services. The MB Prepaid Maintenance program allows drivers to “lock in” the costs for their maintenance before their first service or first 10,000 miles.

Benefits of Prepaid Maintenance

There are many convenient benefits with the Mercedes-Benz Prepaid Maintenance program. For example, those who lease vehicles may enjoy a potential increase in residual value if purchased with lease. Buyers may also enjoy a possible increase in the overall resale value of the vehicle because they can easily prove the car was serviced according to the manufacturer’s standards. Similarly, drivers can have peace of mind knowing they have already paid for maintenance once the time comes around and the confidence of knowing their vehicle will be serviced by brand-trained technicians using Mercedes-Benz parts.

Another great benefit of the Mercedes-Benz Prepaid Maintenance program is that you can build the cost of maintenance right into your monthly vehicle payment. You can also elect to pay the full cost upfront and you can purchase the plan any time before your first service or 10,000 miles – even after you have taken delivery of your new car. So if you did not get to sign up when you first purchased your vehicle, there may still be time to enroll!

Drivers can learn more about the Mercedes-Benz Prepaid Maintenance program by speaking with a sales representative at Santa Barbara Auto Group.   There are three different prepaid maintenance plans available to meet your individual service needs. There are plans that cover service visits for 2,3, or 4 years up to 40,000 miles.

Select the Plan that Fits Your Needs

There are three different prepaid maintenance plans you can select from, each customized to your preference. You can choose a prepaid maintenance plan that covers your service needs for 2, 3, or 4 years, and up to 40,000 total vehicle miles. Mercedes-Benz Star Prepaid Maintenance can be purchased for model year 2007 or newer vehicles and provide flexibility and peace of mind for years to come.

To see if you are eligible for Mercedes-Benz Prepaid Maintenance plans, contact your sales representative at Santa Barbara Auto Group or ask for details when you come in to purchase a new Mercedes-Benz!
