Geneva International Motor Show: 2017 Looks to be an Exciting Year for Mercedes-Benz Vehicles

With a year that began with the "best results in [Mercedes-Benz] company history," according to a press release, "marked by double-digit growth in January and February," it's no wonder that the myriad new European- and world-premiered offerings showcased at the March-2017 87th Geneva International Motor Show were a "big stage" of "sporty elegance" to which to look forward in 2017 and beyond.

Mercedes-Benz opens with a "renewed and expanded" E-Class Cabriolet offering, open-air by design and seating four, to top off the eponymous family, style accents like its long bonnet, taut soft top and muscular amplifying a sporty aesthetic in keeping with the vehicle's powerful engine, comfortable chassis and, below decks, Widescreen Cockpit and state-of-the-art assistance systems. An E-Class coupe and new GLA model, appearing for the first time in Europe, comes close behind.

Next was a four-door high-performance hybrid-powertrain dynamic fastback to turn heads, the Mercedes‑AMG GT Concept coupe, bespeaking quite an appreciable future for performance vehicles, its EQ-Power+ moniker identifying it as featuring an intelligent electrified drive and offering a road-commanding 0‑100 km/h acceleration in as little as three seconds. Mercedes-Benz kept everyday use in mind for this offering, however, as the car likewise offers a roomy interior concealed under its sizable rear lid.

The world premieres of the 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine-equipped Mercedes-AMG E 63 S 4MATIC+ Estate and GT C Roadster Edition 50 vehicles followed, offering the sports feel and ample luggage capacity for the more practical, flanked by the 66 kW (90 horsepower) three-cylinder fortwo cabrio BRABUS edition #2 and 66 kW (90 horsepower) forfour crosstown smart cars, each showing off special trim elements and distinctive sills to appeal to the crossover segment.

Mercedes-Benz of Arlington sure sees good things coming down the metaphorical pipe this year. Take a ride in the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class cabriolet or another model in our five-star lineup to see what we mean. We're just around the corner from Alexandria, Washington D.C., Vienna and Bethesda.
