If you’re in the market for a new Mercedes-Benz, then your holiday season must be going good. Buying any Mercedes-Benz means you are buying a vehicle of top-tier quality. When choosing a Benz, the issue of which is better isn’t the issue. In fact the title of this article is misleading because it implies that one Benz may reign supreme over another. In reality, which Benz is right for you is more of a matter of personal preference than which one is objectively better. If a safe, comfortable, midsize luxury vehicle is right for you than go for the M-Class. If you’re looking for a top-tier sedan or sports car, I would recommend looking at the AMG.

The M-Class features a modern design where the interior space is disproportionally large compared to the overall size of the SUV. What I mean by that is it has the interior space of an SUV but is the size of a midsize vehicle or crossover. Mercedes-Benz has made a luxury midsize vehicle that performs and feels like a rugged SUV. The most important thing to know about the M-Class is that is has received some of the highest rankings in safety of any vehicle in its class. For Example, usnews.com gave the 2013 M-Class a safety rating of 9.7/10, thecarconnection.com gave the 2014 M-Class a 10/10 for safety, and it is an IIHS top safety pick for 2014. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the M-Class a 5/5. I would recommend the M-Class to anyone traveling with precious cargo such as children. For more information and to see how the M-Class performs like a crossover but feels like an SUV, visit your local Mercedes-Benz dealer.

AMG-branded Mercedes-Benz are often underrated. AMG has been manufacturing racing engines since the 1960’s and has made its mark on the racing world. The average consumer in the market doesn’t see the accomplishments AMG has made in the racing world and so it gets underrated. AMG makes their engines by hand with a motto of “one man, one engine.” Each engine receives a stamp that is unique to the individual who made it. Visit a Mercedes-Benz of Tucson and ask to look under the hood of any AMG to check out the unique maker engine stamp. This practice is similar to how a painter signs their painting once it’s finished.
