Mercedes Benz 1500cc: BY Nairobi Law Monthly: DT Dobie has expanded the Mercedes Benz C-Class range of luxury four door saloons for Kenya with the introduction of the C 180. The 1500 cc engine of the C 180, which combines fuel economy with strong performance gives prospective owners the benefit of a favourable price. This brings ownership of the best selling Mercedes saloon within the reach of many more motorists.

The latest C-Class range is a great step forward. The appearance has been changed and features modified bumpers, radiator grille and state of the art headlamps and taillights.

The pleasure of driving a Mercedes Benz is enhanced by the high level of equipment including Active Parking Assist backed by reversing cameras. The Active Break Assist system keeps the driver a safe distance from other vehicles.

The comfort of drivers and passengers is enhanced by special air conditioning designed for a hot climate. The driver’s seat has four way back support and the interior mirror and driver’s exterior mirror dim automatically. Electrically folding exterior mirrors help to minimize the risk of damage in car parks.

Among the safety features are a tyre pressure loss warning system and the C 180 is fitted with run- flat tyres.

Explaining the history of the C-Class, Ian Middleton, managing director of DT Dobie said, “The predecessor of the C-Class was the Mercedes Benz 190 which was introduced in 1982 and caused a sensation.

This brought the handling and safety of the grand S-Class to a smaller format. By the time the first C-Class cars were introduced in 1993, 1.9 million Mercedes Benz 190 cars were on the roads of the world.”

The class leading equipment and technology of the C-Class are the result of work of the Mercedes designers and the use of motor racing as a means of developing and testing new technology.

The Formula One racing cars that have been driven so successfully by World Champion Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas will help to provide advanced performance and safety features for future passenger cars.
