White Mercedes-Benz on the roadMercedes-Benz vehicles are known for their turbo power, distinctive styling, luxurious interiors, and excellent fuel economy. But what are the most reliable Mercedes-Benz models? Short answer: all of them! Thanks to benefits like available extended warranties and innovative safety features, Mercedes-Benz has always been marked as a dependable manufacturer of luxury sedans, compact SUVs, and sports cars.

Warranty Coverage

Mercedes-Benz offers comprehensive warranty protection, whether you buy new or certified pre-owned. Here are just a few highlights:

  • 48-month/50,000-mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty
  • Extended Limited Warranty (60, 72, or 84 months from the original 48-month/50,000-mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty start date – up to either 75,000 or 100,000 total miles)
  • Trip Interruption Coverage
  • 1-year/unlimited-miles CPO Limited Warranty

Safety Features

When you think “Mercedes-Benz technology,” chances are you think of the COMAND® infotainment system or DYNAMIC SELECT®. However, a large portion of the brand’s technology is dedicated to safety systems. A few examples include:

  • 4MATIC® All-Wheel Drive: This lightweight system intelligently allocates torque to the wheels that need it most, allowing you to conquer Merced’s toughest roads.
  • PRESAFE®: Most new vehicles are equipped with PRESAFE®, which senses instability associated with a collision and automatically preps the cabin for impact.
  • Car-to-X Communication: Standard on vehicles like the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and S-Class Sedans, Car-to-X Communication allows drivers to send and receive traffic, weather, and hazard updates.
