Firm shows two of its new models in its Superbowl advert in the US
7 February 2011

Mercedes has partially revealed two of its new models during its Superbowl advert in the US.

The advert, called ‘Welcome’, introduced four new models to the Mercedes range: the already-revealed SLK and CLS63 AMG models, plus its new SLS cabriolet and C-class coupé.

The four appear towards the end of the video. The SLS cabriolet and C-class coupé are always the two models furthest away from camera, although these screen grabs do show their front-end styling and looks from above.

The SLS cabriolet is tipped to appear in late summer 2011, allowing a public debut at the Frankfurt motor show. It features an electrically operated fabric hood, similar in materials and construction to the roof on the E-class convertible.

The C-class coupé has been designed to replace both the CLK and CLC and will make its debut at the Geneva motor show next month.

Driven this week

  • Citroën C3 Aircross
    First Drive
    17 October 2017
    It's got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
