Apparently Mercedes-Benz recently updated their mid-size E-Class sedan range and now – thank you, COVID-19 – the convenience of online launches granted NamWheels an invite to the digital launch of the two-door Coupé and Convertible derivatives. Here are a few details:
Ever since the A-Class attained previously unimagined levels of trendiness, the poor B-Class has been left fighting the MPV mommy van battle by itself. We recently tested a B200.
With the ruthlessly relentless onslaught of SUV’s, are the days of the luxury sedans finally numbered? We test a base model Mercedes-Benz C180 to find out.
The cushioning forays
Mercedes is on a bit of a roll. Recent sales statistics show that the once old and stodgy brand is selling its revived and desperately fashionable products like hot cakes. I’ll immediately admit that I’m not a huge fan of this decidedly successful transformation, chiefly because I have a garage full of old, stodgy Mercs.
The polite softness
I hate pointless things. Nay, I detest anything that misses its point or purpose. Like a screwdriver being used as a chisel, creative minds studying tax law or that gigantic 4×4 on the school run. My latest test car, this pearly white convertible Mercedes S-Class, had me wondering at first – what the hell is the point of it?
The shiny veneer
Some car reviews almost write themselves or, better still, will be written for you by other people. When Mercedes-Benz’ press fleet brought me their range-topping V-Class luxury MPV for testing, I initially panicked about what to write… until the first passengers climbed aboard. All I had to do was listen and take notes…
The latest Mercedes two-door with its miserly Diesel might be a unique offering…
Do you remember Auntie Mabel, the one who always kissed you on the mouth and wrote Christmas cards until last year? Well, she certainly remembered you in her final wishes and hence you now find a lovely bulge in your bank account. So, why not get yourself a swish new coupé like the Mercedes-Benz E220d?
TATA: Wat u nie geweet het nie!
Tata is reeds ‘n dekade of twee of meer ‘n vertroude naam in Namibië. Eers deur ingevoerde vragmotors uit Indië en later die bekendstelling van ‘n reeks bakkies en motors in suidelike Afrika. Die eerst Tata-bakkies wat hier vanaf die vloer gekoop kon word, was die Telcoline. Die naam van hierdie voertuig vertel eintlik die geskiedenis van die motormaatskappy.
