The E200 experience

Written by Rano Iskandar on . Posted in automative, Social News

 


Check out the E-Class models at Jati Transport
 


Experimenting the Mercedes-Benz E200 with the auto pilot parallel parking and it was a success. Without playing with the gear and the brakes. Such a useful feature especially when you don’t have the confidence to do parallel parking within a limited time.
 

Previously I have driven the Mercedes-Benz E300 and then recently I had the privilege to drive the E200 which has an updated feature in the system. Both are equally good rides and E200 has lesser power of course but a more affordable ride than the E300.

The E200 is simply a nice ride. Elegant, I must say and as always, smooth like butter. I have preference of driving the C-Class because it suits my personality. Now I can see how the E-Class has evolved in terms of its vehicle design. It has a more modern and edgy look compared to the previous E-Class design. It also looks sporty feel to it.

I also love the Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive especially the fully automated parking. You simply just have to press the button while looking for a parking space – be it parallel or reverse parking – and just trust the E200 to be on auto pilot to park the vehicle on its designated spot. This means you don’t really even have to change gears (forward or reverse) or press on the brakes. Just let the E200 do the parking for you. It’s scary at first but the E200 is intelligent enough to detect its surroundings and park to almost perfection.

The interior has a great finish and again, an uplift, modern look for both the driver and passenger. It’s quite spacious as well which is a plus point for me.

Features are great such as the moonlighting and also the E200 has an already enabled Mercedes-Benz apps at your disposal. You can be fully connected to the system when you connect it to Wifi. I even tried surfing my blog on the display panel and it works fine. It’s just the tediousness to type the url on the address bar as there is no proper keyboard.

Once you are connected to the internet, you can also asked for navigation and maybe most of you will prefer to use the Internet Radio which is already pre-installed as part of the Mercedes-Benz apps.

There’s many to like about the E200 and it’s available for test drive too. You can contact Jati Transport or visit their showroom Autohaus at Beribi. If you ask me, the E200 would be my second preference after the C-Class (the C43 mmmmmm).

 

 


Love the moonlighting of the interior of the E200
 


Yes, you can even surf the net on the E200
 


There’s the Internet Radio once you are connected to the internet
 


Two days of driving the E200. I’m hungry for more.
 


Do drop by the showroom and check out the E-Class and also other models.
 

The Mercedes-Benz Driving Experience 2018

Written by Rano Iskandar on . Posted in travel, automative, lifestyle, Social News

 


The Brunei representatives including the 10 lucky winners from Jati Transport Sdn Bhd during the Mercedes-Benz Driving Experience 2018 in Kuala Lumpur recently
 


Posing with the GLC AMG 63
 

One of the lucky customers of Jati Transport Sdn Bhd was very grateful that the company hosted such event outside of Brunei Darussalam for their customers. Not just one or two customers but 10 lucky customers had the privilege to test drive different ranges of the Mercedes-Benz models on the famous Sepang International Circuit, Selangor, Malaysia recently.

This was also made possible by Mercedes-Benz Malaysia as the winners were able to participate in the Mercedes-Benz Driving Experience 2018 in Kuala Lumpur.

Our Brunei representatives was grouped with the Philippines, Singapore and Bangladesh. All of us were treated to stay at The Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Kuala Lumpur and it truly fitted the occasion hosted by Mercedes-Benz Malaysia.

We were treated to a great hospitality team by MBM at the Paddock Club 1, maybe the best I’ve experience at Sepang International Circuit and we were given awesome Mercedes goodies. Let’s not forget the free flow of food and beverage during the whole day session.

Before experiencing the different rides on the different Mercedes-Benz models, the participants were greeted by Peter Hackett, MBM AMG Representative/Chief Driving Instructor/Australian Endurance Championship GT Race Driver and he gave a run down of the program and also a briefing on certain skills such as braking, wheels and most of important, safety in dangerous situations.

So which models did we drive? The C300, The A250, The CLS 450 and lastly, my favourite, The AMG C 43. Most of us were able to also drive the GLCs. The instructors were very accommodating and helped the participants to go through the activities – the Slalom course, the Race Start Simulation and the Drifting Session.

I actually enjoyed all the activities and especially the lapping sessions which took place after lunch. This meant we were able to drive the whole track of the Sepang International Circuit and we took turns to drive all the models prepared by MBM.

I didn’t try the Taxi Ride session where the instructors did a hot lap session so the participant got to experience how professional racers drive on the track.

The Brunei participants didn’t go empty handed as we walked with goodie bags and also certificate of participation. One Bruneian, Reuben Fang, was awarded the Best Male Driver by the organiser. Awesome, huh? Congratulations, buddy!!

I could tell that the Brunei group had fun during the one day event. They also took the opportunity to take photos with the newly launched AMG G 63 and also the AMG GLC 63 which were being displayed at the Sepang International Circuit.

Let’s hope this sort of event will be a yearly thing for Mercedes-Benz customers. I wonder what models will be introduced in the next driving event.

The all-new CLS

Written by Rano Iskandar on . Posted in automative, Business, Social News

 


The new CLS 350 😀

The new CLS pioneers the new design idiom of Mercedes-Benz, which is recognisable by its clear contours and reduced lines. Its character is marked by a grille contour that widens towards the base and a forward-slanting front section. Other features include wide, low-set headlamps and two-section tail lights. At the same time the design reflects the timeless aura of the first CLS, which founded a new segment and quickly became a design icon. All CLS models are equipped with new engines: in-line six-cylinder and in-line four-cylinder units as diesel and petrol versions. Like its predecessors, the new CLS exudes self-assured sportiness in exemplary style: a highly emotive vehicle offering impressive long-distance and acoustic comfort coupled with thrilling, unrivalled technology.

 

 

The standard AMG Line makes for added sportiness of the exterior and interior. External features are dynamic AMG styling (consisting of AMG front apron with chrome trim, sportily distinctive air curtains, AMG side sill panels and AMG rear apron in diffuser look with chrome trim strip), a diamond radiator grille with chrome pins and 48.3 cm (19-inch) 5-twin-spoke AMG light-alloy wheels painted in tremolite grey with a high-sheen finish. In the interior, the AMG Line comprises specially designed seats in ARTICO man-made leather/DINAMICA microfibre in black, an AMG multifunction sports steering wheel with flattened bottom section as well as AMG sports pedals and AMG floor mats.

Interior: comfort and versatility

A high-resolution Widescreen cockpit is standard for the new CLS, with two 12.3-inch displays arranged beneath a shared, continuous glass cover.

In the fully digital cockpit, the driver is able to feely configure the information content according to need and the driving situation. Three different styles can be selected depending on preference, mood or to suit the interior appointments. The Classic and Sport styles have a basic structure with two tubes, while the Progressive style surprises and polarises with a structure having a central, tube-shaped instrument.

The ambience lighting is individually adjustable in 64 colours, and also includes the air vents. When the temperature setting of the air conditioning system is changed, it briefly changes colour to show whether the temperature is being made warmer (red) or cooler (blue).

For the first time, the CLS Coupé is a five-seater. The EASY-PACK Quickfold allows the backrests to be folded down in a 40/20/40 split to versatilely expand the large 520-litre luggage compartment.

Intelligent Drive: safety systems from the SClass

The new CLS comes with the latest driving assistance systems with route-based support for the driver. The standard equipment includes Active Brake Assist, Lane Keeping Assist, ATTENTION ASSIST, Speed Limit Assist and the occupant protection system PRE-SAFE®.

The optional Driving Assistance Package consists of Active Distance Control DISTRONIC, Active Steering Assist, Active Speed Limit Assist, Active Brake Assist with cross-traffic function, Evasive Steering Assist, Active Blind Spot Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist and PRESAFE® PLUS. The Driving Assistance package Plus includes PRE-SAFE® Impulse Side. This system can brace the front occupants for a side impact by nudging them sideways to reduce the risk of injury.

MULTIBEAM LED headlamps with ULTRA RANGE high beam are also standard. These allow extremely quick and precise, electronically controlled adjustment of the headlamps to suit the current traffic conditions. ULTRA RANGE Highbeam generates the maximum light intensity permitted by law.

New range of engines: With EQ Boost and 48 volt onboard electrical system

The third generation of the Mercedes-Benz CLS is powered by completely new engines, in-line six-cylinder and four-cylinder petrol units. Also characteristic of the four-door coupé is the extensive range of 4MATIC models.

The new, systematically electrified four-cylinder and in-line six-cylinder with EQ Boost (integrated starter/generator) and a 48 volt onboard electrical system powers the CLS 350, CLS 450 4MATIC and CLS 53 4MATIC+. The integrated electric motor known as EQ Boost assists the combustion engine e.g. when accelerating, makes driving without the combustion engine possible (“sailing”) and supplies the battery with power by means of high-efficiency recuperation. By doing so it makes fuel savings possible that were previously the exclusive domain of high-voltage hybrid technology. All in all, the new in-line six-cylinder engine delivers the performance of an eight-cylinder engine with significantly lower consumption. The CLS 450 4MATIC is equipped with a particulate filter as standard.

 

 

 

 

 

Press preview of the A250 & A200

Written by Rano Iskandar on . Posted in technology, automative, lifestyle, food, Business, Social News

"Woohooo… How can anyone not be excited for the new Mercedes-Benz A250?
 

"Mr. Ho Ley Hoon, Sales Manager of Jati Transport Sdn Bhd mingling with the guests
 

Jati Transport Sdn Bhd knows how to throw a sneak preview of a model in a luxurious manner. They collaborated with a new eatery called Hook•ed, a subsidiary I believe from Golden Corporation, and provided the set up (ambience), service and the most important the food with detailed food presentation.

The event was hosted for the likes of the local press and social influencers of Brunei Darussalam for the press preview of the latest Mercedes-Benz model, the new A200 and the A250, which have already caught many buzzes when I posted a short video a month ago on social media. The dinner + press preview took place at Mercedes Autohaus at Beribi.

In attendance were Mr. Ho Ley Hoon, Sales Manager of Jati Transport Sdn Bhd, Daniel Loo, Marketing Executive at Jati Transport Sdn Bhd and other sales team of Jati Transport Sdn Bhd.

I have to say that the dinner event has a very personal touch and the representatives of the media and social influencers were in awe with what the new A250 and A200 can deliver. Though the exterior may have similar look with previous models, the main stealer of the show is the features of the A250 and A200 and of course, the interior.

I shall share all the specs and features in my next post or show. You will be amazed how smart the Mercedes-Benz can be and yes, you can command by using your voice. The magic word is “Hey Mercedes” and it will attend to you. Awesome!!!

All the current stock have been taken up by customers even before the official launch. But not to worry, more are being shipped as we speak. If you want to buy a Mercedes-Benz, this is definitely the right window and it could be just the best investment for the year 2018 😉

My deep appreciation for Jati Transport for the invite and delivering such a classy dinner event which really suited the theme with the new Mercedes-Benz A250 and A200. Stay tuned for the upcoming post on the A250 and the A200.

The new Mercedes-Benz C180

Written by Rano Iskandar on . Posted in automative, Social News

 


Test driving the latest Mercedes-Benz C180
 

Another privilege to have driven the Mercedes-Benz C180, its latest version. I asked permission from Jati Transport, the authorised distributor of Mercedes-Benz in Brunei Darussalam, if I could drive one of their models for a commercial shoot and they offered me the Mercedes-Benz C180.

The exterior has a different feel compared to its predecessors. I’m pretty sure those who owns the previous C180 will notice the variance of the exterior. The lines, the edges and even the convex and concave surfaces have redefined the C180 model into a more vibrant first impression.

I was also happy with the interior environment of the C180. As always, a high quality finish and materials and it also gives a cultured sports styling and finite details. I like it – simple and elegant.

A few new features to share with you with the new C180. First is the “Active Lane Keeping Assist”. The system can identify an unintentional drifting out of lane, send a haptic warning (steering-wheel vibrations) to the driver, and can help to return the vehicle to the correct lane by selectively braking individual wheels. So this ideal if you are driving along the highway and have the slight tendency to lose focus. This is a great feature to keep you alert on the road.

The other feature is the “Active Blind Spot Assist”. The system makes one of the biggest dangers in road traffic visible – vehicles in the blind spot. If changing lane, for example, it can warn the driver and apply selective braking to individual wheels to avert a potential collision.If a vehicle is detected within the monitored range, a warning symbol is displayed in the driver’s exterior mirror. Should the driver overlook the warning and start to change lanes, the ESP® system can intervene actively and guide the vehicle back into the lane.

Verdict: With an affordable price for the new Mercedes-Benz C180 and not compromising with quality, this is a good purchase. Furthermore, there is the special promotion where you can get BND 1,000 voucher for Mercedes-Benz Service and maintenance, merchandises, accessories and grooming services. Visit Jati Transport Showroom or their Autohaus today.

Mercedes-Benz iShowroom

Mr. Ho Ley Hoon, Sales Manager of Jati Transport Sdn Bhd officially launching the new Mercedes-Benz iShowroom
 

Jati Transport Sdn Bhd has upped their game in the showroom department. Gone are the days of Mercedes-Benz brochures or pamphlets at their showroom. Last night the management team unveiled their first ever digital brochure app. With this app, customers are able to get a close up preview with their preference on the variety of Mercedes-Benz model available for order.

App is called The Mercedes-Benz iShowroom which acts as a digital brochure which allows prospective customers to choose and view which features and equipment best suits them. It’s like buying a computer online and choosing your own specs. Same thing applies here.

The best part of the app is that it allows the customer to choose their financing solution by dragging the button to see his or her budget needs. You can adjust the downpayment and the length of the loan with a touch of a button. Awesome feature!!

With the iShowroom, you can compare the different types of colors and fabrics and even rims of the available Mercedes-Benz models. It can also be viewed on 3 different angles to give the customer a wholistic feel online. There are also videos and interactive applications in making your car shopping experience more exciting than usual.

The sales executive team will be in charge of the iShowroom app whenever you pay a visit to the showroom. Or even better, they can drop by your area or pay you a visit and do a visual presentation to you with their iShowroom app.

Prospective customer can request for an email to be sent or print out after he or she has selected the options of the model for easy reference.

Mr. Ho Ley Hoon, Sales Manager of Jati Transport Sdn Bhd said, “Mercedes-Benz Brunei has been the first to introduce the concept of converting the traditional physical brochure into digital brochure via an app in Brunei. The idea is to offer our customers a unique and interesting experience to match their latest lifestyle when they visit our showroom. Furthermore, our sales executives are well equipped and will able to bring the iShowroom experience to your doorstep or wherever you are.”
