2018 Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet - New Car Reviews

Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet First Look
Last year's 19-foot coupe concept loses its roof 

Last year, Mercedes wowed us all with an electric coupe concept it called the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6. While the name was a bit of a clunker, everything else about it was pure elegance. It was nearly 19 feet long, almost all hood, and rode in silence thanks to its electric powertrain. The Vision 6 is back at Pebble Beach this year, this time without its roof.

In cabriolet form, the Vision 6 is still impossibly long, wide, and low. Only now, the peasants can get a better look at who’s driving. Instead of last year’s red, it’s been painted blue and rides on new 24-inch alloy wheels. Rims that size would look massive on most other cars, but the Vision 6 Cabriolet is so impossibly long, it actually makes 2 feet of wheel look appropriate. Of course, since this is a Maybach concept we’re talking about, the center lock is painted in rose gold. That’s not the only gold decorating the exterior, either. The fabric top also has rose gold threads woven in to match.
Inside, the driver is treated to what Mercedes calls a “360° open-air luxury lounge.” As you can see, the cabin is designed to flow around the occupants, wrapping them in luxury. There aren’t even really separate seats. Instead, the driver’s door panel almost seamlessly transitions into the seat bottom, then into the armrest, the passenger seat, and finally the passenger door panel. And there’s no infotainment screen integrated into the dash, either. Instead, the display is part of a strip that encircles the cabin. The dials and air conditioning vents contrast with the rest of the futuristic interior, using analog needles and classic design cues.

There’s also a sea of white Nappa leather covering almost every surface you might touch. The buttons used to secure the leather to the seats, for example, each have a Mercedes star on them backlit in blue. Oh, and of course the trim pieces are made from rose gold. The floor is covered in open-pore wood and inlaid aluminum to continue the boat theme that the car’s massive length and shape started. The transparent center tunnel, meanwhile, uses blue fiber optics to remind occupants that they’re in an electric land yacht from the future.
Speaking of the Vision 6 Cabriolet’s electric powertrain, it’s even more powerful than the coupe. Instead of 738 hp, it now makes a full 750 hp. Despite the car’s incredible size, Mercedes says that’s enough to hit 60 mph in less than 4 seconds. It also has a claimed range of more than 200 miles and supposedly gains 60 miles of range on only a five-minute charge.

Interior: 360° open-air luxury lounge

With the luxurious interior of the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet, Mercedes-Benz demonstrates a new synthesis of intelligence and emotion. At the same time, the designers have combined the unique tradition of the brand with a previously unknown high-tech experience.
The generous, flowing design idiom brings exterior and interior together in a holistic design. The formal flow of the areas from the rear into the interior gives rise to a typical yacht feeling. A light wing flows in a curve across the door trim and the center tunnel into the seat landscape, creating a 360° open-air luxury lounge.
The new "inside out" spatial design adds a particularly special feature. The sitting surface forms a horizontal plane, transitions into the vertical plane of the doors and finally becomes the underside of the dashboard wing.

In addition to the flowing contours, the material composition produces a luxury experience of the highest order. Here, too, the interplay of the contrasts is both hot and cool. The brand's hallmark authentic materials and colors are used, such as rose gold on the trim elements, or the surfaces which come into contact with the skin, featuring a lavish, quilted crystal white nappa leather finish. In this luxury technique, familiar among other things from Chesterfield furniture, the leather is put into folds in a diamond pattern and secured to the frame with buttons. In the case of the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet, this traditional seat upholstery boasts a futuristic interpretation: each individual button of the quilting depicts a delicate Mercedes star, backlit in blue. The open-pore wood floor with inlaid aluminum underscores the lounge sensation and the connection to yachting.

2018 Tesla Model 3 unveiled

2018 Tesla Model 3 unveiled
Some 400,000 of you out there are eagerly awaiting the day when you can take the wheel of your shiny new Tesla Model 3, but you're going to have to wait a little bit longer. The first full-production version of that car has just rolled off the assembly line, and it's destined for the garage of Tesla CEO Elon Musk himself.

The Model 3 is Tesla's first proper mass-produced car, with a production volume goal of 500,000 units in 2018. That's a very aggressive ramp-up from the approximately 85,000 cars the company sold in 2016. Helping that volume is a much simpler design for the Model 3 than either the Model S or Model X that came before, and helping demand is the price: around $35,000.

2018 Volkswagen Polo offers forbidden fruit in many forms

Volkswagen has offered its miniature Polo hatchback in Europe since 1975. Now in its sixth generation, the 2018 Polo grows a bit, both in terms of its physical size and what it brings to the table.

Like many other new cars, the Polo is slightly larger than before -- it's now about the same size as a fourth-generation VW Golf from 1997. Its look is pretty close to the Golf's, albeit with a more tapered rear end and a front fascia that looks a little more squished.

Honda Civic VTi hatch 2017 review

After a brief pause - and in the quiet before Honda's new CR-V breaks cover - the Japanese company has presented us with the hatchback version of the old-stager. Like the sedan, it's pretty much new from the ground up and has a set of very silly tail-lights. Don't let that second thing put you off, though.

2017 Suzuki Swift - Crash test

he passenger compartment of the Swift remained stable in the frontal offset test. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs for both the driver and passenger. Suzuki showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. In the full-width rigid barrier test, protection of the chest was marginal, both for the driver and the rear seat passenger. Otherwise, protection of critical body areas was rated a good or adequate. The Swift scored maximum points in both the side barrier test and the more severe side pole impact, with good protection of all critical body regions. Tests on the front seats and head restraints demonstrated good protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision. However, a geometric assessment of the rear seats indicated poor whiplash protection for occupants in those seating positions. The Swift has, as part of its 'Radar Brake Support' option pack, autonomous.
emergency braking. The system works at the low speeds, typical of city driving, at which many whiplash injuries are caused and, in tests of this functionality, the system performed adequately.


In the frontal offset test, readings from the 6 year dummy indicated poor chest protection and weak protection of the neck. For the 10 year dummy, neck protection was marginal. In the side barrier test, decelerations in the chest indicated poor protection of the 10 year dummy. Protection in this test was, otherwise, good. The front passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. Clear information is provided regarding the status of the airbag and the system was rewarded. All of the restraint types for the which the Swift is designed could be properly installed and accommodated.


The protection provided by the bonnet to the head of a struck pedestrian was predominantly good or adequate, with poor results recorded on the stiff windscreen pillars. The bumper scored maximum points, offering good protection to pedestrians' legs at all test locations. Protection of the pelvis was predominantly good but some weak and poor results were also recorded.


The Swift has, as standard, as seatbelt reminder system for the front and rear seats. Autonomous emergency braking is included in the 'Radar Brake Support' option pack. Tests of its functionality at highway speeds showed good performance. A driver-set speed limiter is available as an option, separate from the pack.
