The previous year’s model boasts an impressive 329 horsepower and 354 ft-lb of torque and the 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLS only ups the ante. The newest model will now sport an amazing 362 horsepower and 369 ft-lb torque thank to the advanced electrical system. Another benefit of the EQ Boost technology is that it will lower the vehicle’s fuel consumption and increase efficiency.

Stop by Mercedes-Benz Santa Barbara and ask one of our brand-trained representatives about the new styles in the CLS class.

Linking climate control, steering wheel and seat heating, lighting, music, and the fragrance system will allow the driver to tailor this feature according to six different comfort settings. Another feature that amazes is the dual-screen cockpit. Consisting of two 12.3 in. high-resolution screens, one serves as the instrument viewing screen with driver configurable variations and the other serves as the center console housing the Mercedes-Benz CLS’ entertainment system. These two screens are then merged together to form a widescreen along a single panel mounted onto the dash.

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.

Mercedes-Benz Introduces 2018 E-Class Coupe at 2017 Detroit Auto Show

2017-02-01T11:11:17+00:00February 1st, 2017|Mercedes Benz, New Vehicles|

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe puts comfort as a top priority without diminishing any of its predecessors’ best qualities.

The Mercedes-Benz team at Santa Barbara Auto Group is excited about the future of the E-Class after the brand released the model plan prior to the car’s public appearance at the Detroit Auto Show. The Mercedes-Benz E-Class has carved its place into the brand’s persona as the leader in luxury and comfort while lending the title of sportiest to its rivals. In this regard, the 2018 E-Class Coupe solidifies and bolsters that reputation, and even offers a sporty appeal as well.

“With its clear aesthetic lines, our new E-Class Coupe appeals equally to the heart and mind,” said Prof. Dr. Thomas Weber, member of board of management of Daimler AG and responsible for group research and Mercedes-Benz cars development. “It combines contemporary luxury, agile sportiness and high-tech engineering into an automotive personality with spirit, offering exclusive, refined driving pleasure.”

Spacious, Luxurious, and Powerful

The 2018 edition of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe is longer, wider, and taller than its predecessor. The coupe measures at 190-inches long (4.8 inches longer than the previous model), 73.2-inches wide (2.9-inches wider than before), and 1.3-inches taller at 56.3-inches. The extra space and comfort acquired by these additional few inches are substantial, especially in regards to rear legroom, front and rear shoulder room, as well as rear headspace. One of the more recognizable changes in the vehicle’s appearance is that the 2018 E-Class has dropped two of the doors. The now two-door Coupe has a more executive appearance with aesthetic lines flowing from front to back that subtly demand and inherently garner respect.

For the U.S. market, the E-Class Coupe will initially launch with the E400 and E400 4MATIC models. Powered by a 3.0-liter bi-turbo V6 engine with 329 horsepower and 354lb-ft of torque, the new E-Class will offer more in the power department than any of the previous models. Both the E400 and E400 4MATIC will come equipped with a 9G-Tronic nine-speed automatic transmission that pushes it from zero-to-60 mph in 5.2 seconds. In the technology department, the 2018 E-Class Coupe will introduce Mercedes-Benz’s next step to semi-autonomous driving, with the upgraded Drive Pilot system and Distance Pilot Distronic that, for the first time, can automatically follow vehicles in front of you up to a speed of 130 mph.

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe is set to be released for public purchase in the summer of 2017. As a proud authorized Mercedes-Benz dealer, the Mercedes-Benz team at Santa Barbara Auto Group offers exclusive deals and financing options that come direct from the manufacturer.
