    • Mercedes W213 E Class Coupe
      The current Mercedes E Class was debuted at the North American Auto Show in 2016 and came on sale shortly after. Designated by Mercedes as the W213 the current E class is available in saloon, estate and coupe body styles just like its predecessor.
      With regards to this fifth generation, E Class Mercedes has unified the design to tie the E Class in with both the current S Class and smaller C Class. As such, this has meant the current E Class Coupe is curvier than its predecessor whilst giving it a sportier persona.

    • Used Car Review: Mercedes SLK
      The Mercedes SLK is now into its third generation and was first shown at the 2011 Geneva Motor show in preparation for its release later that year and designated by Mercedes as R172. This SLK model aimed to improve on the quality and equipment from the previous R171 model and adopted various options from its predecessor such as Mercedes airscrarf system and also gained the front engine, rear wheel drive set up. The third generation SLK was a stark contrast in appearance compared to its predecessor which had based its looks on Mercedes Formula one cars and the SLR Mclaran supercar. The current SLK has adopted a more of a conservative look in my opinion by having less of a raked/pointed nose, but this has also made the current model look more grown up as well as bringing the design in line with the SLK’s bigger sibling the SL.

    • Future Classic: Land Rover Defender
      It cannot be denied the Defender is a true British icon and one of the few vehicles in the world which is truly classless. It’s a car that is befitting of Royalty, as well as farmers or builders and as such it is a vehicle which does not look out of place either in the country or parked on a suburb

  • Global Road Safety Week

       (0 reviews)

    ROAD SAFETY and breakdown organisation GEM Motoring Assist is using the forthcoming UN Global Road Safety Week as an opportunity to encourage all drivers and riders to consider the risks they face (and the risks they pose) on their daily journeys, and to find ways of reducing those risks

    The Fifth UN Global Road Safety Week, starting next Monday 6 May, seeks to promote understanding of what a safer future could look like, and to mobilise action among road users that will lead to safer road journeys worldwide.

    Figures released by the World Health Organization (WHO) show that road traffic injuries are now the number one killer of people aged 5 to 29 years. This burden is disproportionately carried by pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists. Drastic action is needed to put measures in place to meet any future global target that might save lives, says the WHO.

    Neil Worth, GEM Motoring Assist’s road safety officer, said: “As road users, we all tend to underestimate the risks we face – as well as overestimating our ability to deal with them. That makes us all more vulnerable than we may realise.

    “GEM’s message for UN Global Road Safety Week is that we all have an opportunity to make a difference. We can all commit to reducing risk and improving safety on road journeys, as long as we don’t always see it as someone else’s problem.

    “So let’s celebrate the opportunity we all have to make a difference. Let’s commit to make changes, and develop an attitude where risk is reduced. Let’s stop criticising others and instead see what we could be doing to improve safety on our road journeys – safety for ourselves and for those who share the roads with us.

    “The good news is that we can all start with our very next journey.”
