Mercedes-Benz Maybach

Mercedes-Benz Maybach

The Mercedes-Benz Maybach is the ultimate of the ultimate, and it is the long-wheelbase version of the S-Class. Rich leather upholstery, replete with beautiful decorative perforations and stitching, resides everywhere the hand falls and seemingly stretches from floor to ceiling. The steering is fairly light, and with lane keeping assist and/or Distronic Plus (Advanced radar sensors vigilantly scanning traffic ahead) cruise control activated, it could even subtly steer the car for you. This quite obviously isn't a sporty car, but it can be surprisong at how adeptly this very large sedan can hunker down and go around a corner.

The standard equipment list includes a chrome twin exhaust system, LED headlights, a sliding panoramic sunroof, key-less entry and go, run-flat tyres, tinted rear windows and a 360-degree camera system on the outside. A pair of massive, 12.3-inch widescreen displays appear to float in their mounts, with one acting as a gauge cluster and the other keeping tabs on infotainment functions and advanced vehicle settings. At night, driver-adjustable multi-color lighting bathes the cabin in a soothing glow.

The rear seats are the place to be, with pampering accommodations that wouldn't be out of place in a custom-outfitted Gulfstream. There's abundant room to stretch out, and with the rear center console, it's easy for a pair of occupants to get work done on the optional foldout tray tables or watch a movie using the twin rear screens. With the seats' power recline function and pop-out calf support and footrest, it's also possible to catch a few Z's or indulge in a quick "hot stone" massage en route to your next appointment.

At the front, all of the Maybach's many vehicle functions are controlled by the latest iteration of the Mercedes COMAND system. It is quite easy to be overwhelmed by the sheer volume of things to control on the car. As a result, it takes a long time to familiarize yourself with everything even on a drive including the redundant control setup of a traditional knob controller and a more modern capacitive touch-pad. You can essentially use whichever you prefer.

Besides the typical airbags and traction aids, Mercedes-Benz Maybach comes with a driver knee airbag, front side pelvic airbags, rear side airbags, rear cushion airbags that prevent submarining under your seat belt, rear-seat belt airbags, a forward collision warning and automatic braking system (detects cars and pedestrians), a rear collision detection and mitigation system, a drowsy driver warning system, active lane-keeping and blind-spot assistance, front and rear cross-traffic alert. Also included is free trial of Mbrace Secure emergency services, which includes automatic collision and alarm notification, stolen vehicle locator and an emergency call button.

The car also comes standard with ABS brakes automatically sense when a tire has stopped rotating under extreme braking, and can modulate the brake pressure to allow the tire to rotate. Anti-whiplash head restraints actively react to rear collision forces and craddle the occupants head in an effort to reduce the likelihood of a whiplash injury. The vehicle is equipped with an ignition disable device that will prevent the engine from starting if the correct original manufacturer key is not used.

Ford Everest

Ford Everest

The all-new Ford Everest is a seven-seat wagon, full-time four-wheel drive, and dual-range gearing with an excellent Diesel engine.

It's now offering a combination of stylish design, modern technology, balanced on-road and off-road capability, and a refined premium interior. The Ford Everest provides equipment such as headlamps, LED daytime running lights, powered panoramic sunroof, eight-way powered front seats, leather seat trim, leather gear shifter, power fold third row seats, illuminated scuff plates, blind spot monitoring.

The console touch-screen is big, and manages many menus. The climate control can be operated from here, or from their panel of physical switches lower down, where you’ll also find the seat heating controls. The mid-row rear seat occupants are spoilt with their own 12V and 230V power ports.

The Ford Everest adds Dynamic stability control with roll stability control, ABS with electronic brake force distribution and traction control, emergency brake assist, driver and front passenger airbags, side front airbags, side curtain airbags (to 3rd row), driver’s knee airbag, and a belt minder system (for 1st and 2nd row occupants) comes standard across the range.

The EPAS is intelligent enough to vary steering assistance based on vehicle speed, steering wheel angle, cornering forces and acceleration, and is calibrated to deliver accurate responses at high speeds while remaining light and nimble at low speeds, such as when parking. The result is responsive handling that rewards the expert driver and flatters the novice, delivering Ford's fun-to-drive spirit.

Trend adds lane keep assist and lane departure warning, while the Titanium gains blind spot monitoring with cross traffic alert, and tyre pressure monitoring.

MG GS 2017

 MG GS 2017

The MG GS certainly isn’t bad, but you do feel some body lean on a twisty road. The steering helps, though, because it’s well weighted and it’s easy to place the front of the GS precisely. The gear change is pleasant enough, offering slick if slightly long shifts, but unfortunately an engine that holds on to revs far too readily spoils this. To make a smooth change, you need to come off the throttle and consciously wait for the revs to fall before shifting into the next gear.

Standard features include power steering, power windows, central locking, fabric seats, halogen headlamps, fog lamps, LED daytime running lamps, manual-adjustable seats, manual A/C, stereo with USB/AUX support, 4 speakers and 17-inch alloy wheels.

Safety features include stability control, ABS with electronic brake distribution (EBD), brake assist, auto hold and front airbags. This models get additional airbags, hill descent control and anti-roll program.
