This question always pops up in this community.

What are the different classes in Mercedes Benz?

Many of the letters of the different Mercedes classes have a historic meaning. Mercedes adopted a new, simpler naming convention for their vehicles a few years ago, so this answer reflects that.

The core models

S-class: Sonderklasse = Special Class

E-class: Executive Class

C-class: Comfort Class

B-class: no historic meaning, but smaller than a C-class

A-class: no historic meaning, but smaller than a B-class

G-class: Geländeklasse = Off Road Class (real off road, not an SUV)

V-class: historically used to be called Vito, which refers to Vitoria-Gasteiz, the assembling factory in Spain. Easier to remember: V stands for Van.

X-class: no historic meaning, but X stands for 4x4 (4 wheel drive)

Other letters are sometimes used as a prefix (yes, the prefixes overlap with the core classes, but you’ll get the hang of it soon enough):

C: Coupe

S: Sport

G: Geländewagen = Offroader / SUV

L: Leicht = Light (as in lightweight, although you need to take this with a grain of salt)

CL: Coupé Leicht = Lightweight Coupe

SL: Sport Leicht = Lightweight Sportscar

GL: Geländewagen Leicht = Lightweight Offroader / SUV

GT: Gran Turismo

Now you can build your own Mercedes-class. Isn’t that fun?! Let’s give it a shot:

CLA: A-class-based Lightweight Coupe

GLE: E-class-based Lightweight SUV (this used to be the ML-class)

C Coupé: C-class-based Coupe

CLS: S-class-based Lightweight Coupe

E Convertible: E-class-based Convertible

GLS: S-class-based Lightweight SUV (this used to be the GL-class)

New example: SLC: C-class-based Lightweight Sportscar (this used to be the SLK, where K stood for Kurz (meaning “short”)

Let’s just say that Mercedes’ naming is not a dyslexic’s best friend.

You’ll notice that Mercedes-Benz is rather liberal with the “Leicht” moniker. Obviously none of these cars are really light, but historically, the L did stand for Lightweight. Sometimes the weight of history catches up with us.

Enjoy your Benz as much as I do..

Anyway it's nice to see that Mercedes has again won the F1 Race for the 5th consecutive years starting from 2014.

Congratulation to the Mercedes Team.
