When you talk of a highly represented brand from motorsport to transportation and industry vehicles, there is no doubt that Mercedes is well represented across boards. The company has learnt to constantly improve on its success formula, and so it has been able to release arguably its best in the last decade. It has pulled a lot of positive surprises and has created some of the best cars ever lived including some of its own best models of all time. Here are the top 10 of this series as we have researched and identified;
Mercedes Benz S-Class
As it is almost impossible to have anything go wrong with Mercedes, some of its height in the 2010s is the flagship super luxury sedan. It has a perfect ergonomics which is only next to supreme at its time. This complements its stylish coupe variant and the hybrid inclusive option. Let me be clear to you without exaggeration that the S-class has been uncontested in terms of its luxury, performance and features since it was unveiled.
It has an enormous list of options, starting at $91,000 and could rise up to $250,000 depending on your features’ choices.

Mercedes Benz S-Class is an unending nest of offers as it nestles up 612 horsepower from its eager V12 engine. Can I hear you say wow?!
As you know that no year goes unnoticed in the Mercedes Benz community, the brand blessed the automobile world with yet another classic originality in its most brilliant model lineup in 2015. This is the Mercedes GT supercar. The car takes a low-slung design that takes design inspiration from the brand’s earliest sport models. The car’s signature feature a massive elongated hood and a V8 engine that chum out a whopping 577 horsepower to its rear wheels. This means that the Mercedes AMG-GT do a 0-60 within 3-5 sends and would only cease acceleration after it hits 200 mph. If you are seeking one of the most beautiful cars of the last decade, I strongly recommend GT.

For its luxury feel and sporty performance, it is referred to as the spiritual successor to the legendary 300SL “Gullwing” of the 1950s supercars category. In fact, the car was a proof of a huge decade for Mercedes Benz in the 2010s. It became the dream car of many immediately after it was released. Top of the heavens for this car is its gullwing door design and the huge 622hp raw power that gets generated from its 6.2L V8 engine. This is not entirely all. Its 2013 model came on board as a limited electric variant and the most powerful production Mercedes ever made courtesy of its 740 horsepower from the same engine. Guess what?! The world was not prepared for this luxury monster and so the model was discontinued in 2015 to give way to the Mercedes-AMG GT.

Mercedes has got something for the luxury sports convertible lovers with its branded SL-class. This car featured an aluminum framework paired with a new line of powerful petrol engines to drastically reduce its weight.
The attractive roadster has up to 60L engine that generates an insane dose of 630 horsepower.

Mercedes Benz A-Class Sedan
Just at the close of last century, Mercedes began to introduce the already appealing luxury sub-compact A-class in an all-new sedan version.

To beat up its presence in the market amidst competitions, Mercedes introduced an impressive 15.1 cubic foot rear storage and more rooms in both front and back seat areas.
Mercedes sets a standard of 188hp and 2.0L engine for all its trim. However, it continues to with its beautifully designed concept that appeal to almost everyone that loves sportiness and practicality. The closest competition to this car is the BMW’s 2 series. Others simply seem not to have an answer for it.
Mercedes AMG GT 63 S
The Mercedes Benz AMG GT is a class on its own but the AMG GT 63 S is an all-out luxury sedan with the performance of a supercar which seems to be on a bigger class. This car is arguably one of the few fastest four-door cars in the world. Mercedes was right to use this product to test the limits of just how far a luxury sedan can travel.
