Six new Mercedes-Benz models will make their world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show in March, continuing a new product offensive “that has opened Mercedes-Benz ownership to a significantly broader body of motorists and underpinned growth, both in Irish and international markets”, according to Ciaran Allen, sales manager for Mercedes-Benz passenger cars in Ireland.

One of the big stars of the show will be the new Mercedes-Benz A-Class, which is set to arrive in Ireland in time for the 182 registration period.

The new facelifted C-Class range will also be on display, and arrives in Ireland just after the new A-Class in July. First versions will be in coupé and cabriolet form, followed in September by the saloon and estate versions.

Other Geneva newcomers for Mercedes-Benz will be a high-performance 4-Door GT Coupé, G63 and C43 Sedan and Estate facelift, plus a plug-in hybrid C300de and E350e, and the latest self-driving concept from Smart.

The new Mercedes-Benz G-Class will also be on display at the Geneva Motor Show. It was first shown at the recent North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
