    Jaguar and Mercedes Immortalized in Film [INFOGRAPHIC]

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Filmmakers have long prized luxury cars from automakers like Mercedes-Benz and Jaguar. A film car coordinator selects the cars to be featured in a movie, and matches each car to the character’s personality, style, and social status. In some movies, the car plays such an important role that it is almost a character itself. Car chases, like the one involving a 2013 G-Wagen in A Good Day to Die Hard, present a great opportunity to show off the capabilities of luxury cars. Cars in films are also used to woo characters, like Hugh Grant’s 1969 280 SE convertible in Bridget Jones’s Diary. Check out this infographic to learn more about the Mercedes-Benz and Jaguar vehicles featured in popular films from the last several decades, and please pass it along to your fellow film and luxury car admirers!

    How Mercedes-Benz Enhances your Dallas Commute

    Last updated 2 years ago

    If you want to drive a luxury vehicle with a heritage of innovation and success, Mercedes-Benz is the best brand for you. Today’s Mercedes vehicles come with the latest features that are designed to keep you safer and more connected to the driving experience. Before you research Mercedes’ latest features, read this article for a history of Mercedes’ technological firsts to find out how Mercedes-Benz enhances your Dallas commute:

    The First Car

    Back in 1886, Carl Benz was given approval for a patent for the first automobile. Called the “Motorwagen,” this three-wheeled car featured an engine with just one cylinder. After 1886, inventors and engineers all over the world looked to Benz’s latest design for ideas, inspiration, and guidance. Over 100 years later, one thing hasn’t changed—automakers worldwide still look to Mercedes-Benz to see how the best automobiles are made.

    The First Electric-Powered Car

    While many hybrid vehicles exist today, few people know that Mercedes-Benz was the automaker that introduced them. Mercedes cars, trucks, buses, and service vehicles were using battery-electric propulsion as early as 1906. Mercedes currently offers the E-Class and S-Class with optional hybrid engines, and is expected to expand its hybrid offerings in the near future.

    The First Four-Wheel Independent Suspension

    The four-wheel independent suspension, a technology that still isn’t entirely common on today’s non-luxury vehicles, is yet another feature that Mercedes-Benz has innovated. Debuting back in 1931, the Mercedes 170 was the first vehicle to feature a fully independent suspension, which gave it the best handling and ride comfort of any vehicle at the time.

    The First Attention Assistant

    Mercedes-Benz is obsessed with safety. Which is why in 2010 the automaker developed the Attention Assist feature. This technology works to prevent accidents from drowsy driving by monitoring over 70 different characteristics and audibly alerting the driver if signs of drowsiness are detected.
