Win a weekend of luxury with Mercedes-Benz
Experience the ultimate in luxury vehicles with your own Mercedes-Benz for a weekend.
When you think Mercedes-Benz, a dual cab ute is probably not the first thing that springs to mind, but the launch of the new X-Class has changed the way we look at the brand forever, and having experienced first hand the benefits of this luxury new addition I can see what all the fuss is about. Offering three variants in the range, starting with the entry-level pure model and stepping up to the progressive and power models, the X-Class is the perfect blend of practicality and comfort. Boasting a roomy interior, our power model allowed plenty of space for our family of five. Decked out with all the bells and whistles you would expect from this prestige brand, the top of the range model is complete with sat-nav, rain-sensing wipers, eight-speaker sound system, 360-degree camera and 19-inch alloy wheels. It’s also the safest dual cab on the road. The 2.3 litre 4-cylinder diesel engine was fantastic on fuel, had plenty of power, was quiet on the road and the roomy tray was perfect to throw all the bikes and picnic gear in for our family outing. Shifting gears considerably, I was also lucky enough to experience the gorgeous AMG CLA 45, now there’s a show-stopper. From the growl of the engine when you turn the key to the invigorating ride on the open road, this would have to be one of my favourite models. As you sit back in the lush bucket seats that hug you tightly, the powerful 2.0 litre turbo petrol engine accelerates to 100km in just 4.2 seconds. I felt like a movie star getting around town in this sleek little number. With a seven-speed, dual-clutch, paddle-shift gearbox, it is flawless along the winding Coastal roads or on the open highway. The Harman/Kardon sound system is phenomenal, and comes with 12 speakers. With the roof top open, the tunes pumping and that lightning fast engine taking you to your next destination, who wouldn’t love this sexy little head turner.
Changing lanes a little, if you’re looking for a practical family car with loads of space that still looks the part, you can’t go past the C 300 Estate. With a curvaceous wagon body, and complete with AMG styling plus 19-inch alloys, lowered sports suspension, and plenty of get up and go, the 2.0 litre direct injected turbo auto is a super comfortable ride. Perfect for ferrying a carload of boys to and from soccer games, the boot was big enough for all their sporting bags, with room to spare. Electric park brake, rain-sensing wipers, parking assistance, reversing camera, panoramic glass sunroof, intelligent lighting system and multi-functional three spoke steering wheel with shift paddles and a killer sound system are just some of the standard features of the C-Class. With an affordable entry price range, this stylish family car ticks all the boxes and is certainly not your average wagon.
There is no doubt, Mercedes-Benz is synonymous with luxury, and that’s certainly the case at the Mercedes-Benz Sunshine Coast dealership. With a motto of the best or nothing, Mercedes-Benz Sunshine Coast has been providing luxury vehicles to residents of the Sunshine Coast for 20 years. Located in the hub of Maroochydore, the dealership offers fully operational sales (new, demonstrator and pre-owned cars as well as commercial vans), service and parts facilities as well as finance availability.
