Mercedes-Benz of Lynnwood: 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sports In-Terminal Mode from Nokia

Now that the new 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class is official, we're finding out more about the new technology coming inside. With the advent of smartphones and their almost universal use, automakers are working to give consumers in-car integration. Mercedes-Benz continues it's partnership with Nokia to provide Terminal Mode technology. According to Nokia, the Terminal Mode will be an industry standard, so eventually it will be able to be integrated to other phones besides a Nokia. Paired with the COMAND infotainment system, Mercedes-Benz offers a complete internet experience, straight from the dash.

While Terminal Mode will eventually come in-car in the new 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, you can also find it as an aftermarket accessory for earlier Mercedes-Benz models. To find out if your Mercedes-Benz can be upgraded with Terminal Mode, let the parts professionals at the Phil Smart Parts Department give you the details.

Mercedes-Benz of Lynnwood: A Bulletproof Hybrid Mercedes-Benz

It's probably not one you'll need on your daily commute to Seattle, but Texas Armoring Corporation has created a custom Mercedes-Benz in a class by itself. Combining the latest in hybrid technology with the latest in protection vehicles, the S400 Hybrid sedan is covered in a lightweight armor reported to be  30 to 40 percent lighter than a standard bulletproof covering--but still able to stand up to an M16 or AK-47.

With this level of protection and a selling price of $255,000 (additional options extra), we doubt we'll see many of these tooling around the Puget Sound. But if you're interested, US and European pre-orders will begin on January 3, 2011.
