Mercedes is launching six new arrivals in the autumn
Mercedes-Benz in Ireland is facing into a busy autumn of new model introductions with a further six new arrivals set to hit our shores between September and November.
The company is making big efforts to be a younger more dynamic brand. The problem is, as always, how to hold on to your old market as well.
In the pipeline is a new C-Class estate, which will take its place alongside the recently-launched C-Class saloon range, plus two new S-Class derivatives - an S-Class coupe AMG with all of the sporty trim that the letters AMG suggest, and an S-500 hybrid which will take its place alongside the S-300 version.
For CLS admirers, new versions of the coupe and shooting brake models are promised along with an AMG GT which will be a head-to-head competitor for the iconic Porsche 911.
Commenting that these new arrivals will top what has surely been the most active period of new model development in Mercedes-Benz's history, their sales manager in Ireland, Ciaran Allen, said that "for environmentally-conscious motorists, the year will close on a high with the arrival in November of an electric-powered B-Class."
