Mercedes Benz is commonly referred to as Mercedes and/or sometimes Benz. Mercedes is a luxury German vehicle brand established back in 1926. However, Mercedes-Benz actually traces its origins to Karl Benz's creation of the first internal combustion engine in a car. This was patented in January 1886. Mercedes-Benz normally has a strong reputation for quality and durability.
Until the year of 1994, Mercedes-Benz utilized an alphanumeric system for categorizing their vehicles. The number sequence is approximately equal to the engine's displacement in litres multiplied by 100. The following numbers then indicate the body style and engine type.
"C" indicates a coupe or cabriolet body style.
"D" diesel engine.
"E" indicates petrol fuel injection. Also used for electric models and plug-in hybrids.
"G" was originally used for off-road vehicles. However now applies to Mercedes SUVs such as G, GLA, GLC, GLE, GLK, and GLS.
"K" was used in the 1930s, indicating a supercharger engine. Although there are three exceptions (SLK, SSK, and CLK), where K indicates short-wheelbase.
"L" indicates lightweight for sporting models and long-wheelbase for sedan models.
"R" indicates racing cars (for instance, the 300SLR).
"S" indicates "Special class" for flagship models, including the S-Class, and SL-Class, SLR McLaren, and SLS sports cars.
"T" indicates "Touring"
Bear in mind some models in the 1950s also had lower-case letters (b, c, and d) to indicate specific trim levels.
