Review of the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C200
Mercedes-Benz, the brand associated with producing pioneering premium luxury cars all over the world, grabbed eyeballs recently as it decided to take off the wraps of the all-new S-Class. This lead to the passing of the technologies and the specifications on to the lower-end Mercedes-Benz models, the latest to follow that path being the Mercedes-Benz C200.
Although appearing almost identical to the S-Class, the C200 has an identity of its own, with the beautifully sculpted headlamps and the front grille. The car is so designed to reduce wind resistance to cut through air in higher speeds.
The interior of the car is artfully crafted, paying more attention to the details and comes in with the usual latest Mercedes-Benz features like a slim tablet-inspired 8.4 inches infotainment screen that displays the latest version of the Mercedes’ COMAND infotainment system including the 3D navigation, a reverse camera function and car systems touchpad.
The C200 provides longer wheelbase to create additional room to the already spacious car. It also has a panoramic sunroof, resulting in a cabin that feels more airy.
The four-cylinder of the C200 produces 184PS at 5,500rpm with the 2.0-litre engine and 300Nm at 1,400rpm, making the C200 the most powerful car in the segment. The motor of the machine is silent like most of the Mercedes units. It is also established with an automatic 7-speed transmission. The bold machine accelerates to 100 kmph at a time of 7.3 seconds. The top speed is betted at 235 kmph.
The new C200 is a benchmark in this segment as safety is a priority in the machine. Assistance in hill start and availability of seven airbags is a standard. Several other comfort features like panoramic sunroof, full leather upholstery, adjusting of electric seat for both passenger and driver which includes thigh support, 3D navigation, keyless ignition, LED headlamps, ambient lighting and premium Burmester music system which includes 13-speakers. This surround system is the best in its segment.
Review of the Mercedes-Benz GLA45 AMG
After the inception of the Mercedes-Benz GLA 45, the smaller end of the performance SUV market has spiced up all of a sudden. This car enables the GLA stand out among all other ‘crossover’ cars and sports a silhouette much more like a well-sized family car rather than a studier station wagon.
This sultry 4x4 has 355bhp installed in it, along with a 2.0-litre petrol fitted with a 332lb ft turbocharged engine. A dual-clutch of seven-speed transmission which is automatic is also installed. Its performance is reputed to be capable of 0-62mph in 4.8sec and limited to 155mph.
The car also has an easy handling facility and allows a comfortable ride through most of the bumps lumps although snatching the calm away from the cabin only in the sharpest of ridges.
The stability and precision along with the turbo-fed traction makes up the car’s most convincing features and the ride extremely enjoyable on a twisting road.
The car is jacked up with impressive features and is set to be the new trump card for the premium car manufacturing company for the sales of the next few years.
Review of the 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe
2015 sees the entry of the new Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe, the company’s answer to the BMW X6.The car is fitted with an impressive set of features and is the first other than the E-Class to include the 9-speed transmission as standard and a four-wheel-drive.
The car comes bundled up with SUV features with a fast-curved roofline mixed with surprisingly clearance of high ground and enormous wheels- 20-inch to 22-inch rims- which makes the car perfect to be driven off-road.
The beefed up styling of the GLE Coupe is sure to take the market by storm and give a tough competition to the BMW X6.
