Bad news for those planning to spec their brand new 2021 E-Class with the company’s classic-style front grille and hood ornament as Mercedes has ditched that option from its US range.

For decades the three-pointed star on the hood was considered a trademark of luxury but as years go by, that image slowly faded away in favor of an even bigger star in the middle of the grille. In fact, the trend of having an ornament sticking out of the bonnet is slowly but steadily dying.

Customers in North America are getting the 2021 Mercedes E-Class with the sportier front grille

Add to that the ever-stricter safety laws in different parts of the globe and hood ornaments are becoming increasingly tricky for automakers with a global footprint.

Mercedes USA has confirmed to Motor Trend that the option, previously available as part of the ‘Luxury’ trim, has been indeed discontinued. Luxury-fitted Mercedes E-Classes came with the classic front grille that featured the familiar rows of chrome slats and the company’s logo proudly sitting on top.

In fact, the only Mercedes models you can still buy with a hood ornament in the US market are the new S-Class sedan and the Maybach GLS SUV, with the rest of the lineup offering the star-in-grille fascia only.

However, the hood ornament option is still available in regions like Europe, where customers can pick the ‘Exclusive’ exterior package. This includes not only the classic chrome front grille and the star on the hood but also adds shiny chrome trim bits to the bumpers and side windows.

In Europe, Mercedes offers the ‘Elegance’ trim level that includes the traditional ‘star’ hood ornament

That means that if you still want that classic Benz feel from your new 2021 Mercedes E-Class, all you have to do is order the parts from the old Continent. It should be plug-and-play.


日本《Mitsubishi三菱》原廠在2020年4月中旬時才替當地所販售的《Mitsubishi Delica D:5》追加了主打強化戶外活動使用機能的《Mitsubishi Delica D:5 Jasper》全新車型。經過了半年多的時間後,日前《Mitsubishi》又再度替日本市場販售《Mitsubishi DelicaD:5》進行了一部產品改良的動作。

現行小改款《Mitsubishi Delica D:5》在2018年11月換上了品牌最心家族化設計風格首度亮相並於2019年2月在日本上市,至今約兩年時間《Mitsubishi》原廠仍持續替《Mitsubishi Delica D:5》車系在當地進行產品改良或推出特別仕樣車延續產品熱度。

此次選擇在2020年12月10日在日本市場所正式發表的最新《Mitsubishi Delica D:5》在外觀、內裝部份並沒有進行顯著更動,原廠將升級重點放在車輛配備的升級與強化上。首先《Mitsubishi Delica D:5》追加了雨滴感應式雨刷的配備增加了在雨天行車時的便利與安全,此外除了M、JASPER、G、URBAN GEAR G等車型之外,其餘日本市場販售《Mitsubishi Delica D:5》都將加熱方向盤列為標準配備,在寒冷冬季來臨之際帶來了暖暖貼心。

另一方面,雖然日本市場販售《Mitsubishi Delica D:5》原本便具備了自動頭燈的功能,但是《Mitsubishi》原廠趁著此次產品改良提升了自動頭燈的開啟速度讓夜間行車的安全性獲得了進一步的提升。經過此次一部產品改良工程的《《Mitsubishi Delica D:5》已經2020年12月10日在日本市場展開販售,而《Mitsubishi》原廠也針對新車開出了介於391萬3,800至448萬9,100日幣的建議售價,約合106萬至121萬元新台幣。

Techart is no stranger when it comes to tuning Porsches and is now offering a full range of mods for the Cayenne, including body kits, interior packages, and of course power upgrades.

The tuning company’s latest product is the available Powerkit for the Cayenne GTS, which boosts engine output from its original 454 HP (460 PS) and 457 lb-ft (620 Nm) of torque to 631 HP (640 PS) and 641 lb-ft (870 Nm), an increase of 177 HP (180 PS) and 184 lb-ft (250 Nm) over the standard model.

This enables the Techart-tuned Cayenne GTS to do the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in 3.6 seconds (down from 4.5) and reach a top speed of 186 mph (300 km/h), 19 mph more than the stock GTS.

Aside from the Cayenne GTS, Techart offers engine tuning packages for every model in the Cayenne range, including the base and S models, the E-Hybrid and the Turbo. Moreover, Techart can upgrade the Turbo S E-Hybrid to a stunning 740 HP (750 PS) and 760 lb-ft (1,030 Nm) of torque.

Porsche Cayenne SUV and Coupe owners can also choose from a wide range of Aerokit body styling options; Techart offers a new aerodynamic hood made out of carbon fiber, a front lip for the bumper, an add-on lip for the rear roof spoiler, a new rear apron with a diffuser and more. The tuner offers its Aerokit accessories for all Cayenne models with a towbar system, as well as all US-spec models.

There’s also an extensive range of wheels, ranging from classic designs to more aggressive-styled ones, depending on your taste. Techart can even add decorative accents in your preferred color for your new wheels.

The rims are forged and can reach up to 23 inches in diameter, offering plenty of different finishes and color combos. The aftermarket wheels can be combined with spacers from the tuning company, as well as painted brake calipers. Models without an air suspension can also be fitted with Techart’s sport springs which lower the ride height by 35 mm.

As for those who want a custom feel inside their Cayenne, Techart offers a virtually limitless range of leather options, bespoke steering wheels, painted segments, carbon fiber trims, matching pipings, stitching, and perforations, as well as the option for natural virgin wool to those who want something different than leather.
