The Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 and GLC Coupé 300

Just a few weeks after unveiling the GLC SUV, Mercedes-Benz is presenting the GLC Coupé worldwide. But I am glad Jati Transport brought both the GLC SUV and the GLC Coupé together this time. Both are available for viewing at the Mercedes Autohaus at Beribi from today till Sunday.

The next generation of the successful model skillflully and intricately combines the sportiness of a coupé with the functionality of an SUV. The result is a vehicle for individualists who attach maximum importance to extraordinary looks, the greatest possible freedom and pioneering technology. Innovative technologies, intelligent driving assistance systems and a new engine line-up make the Coupé a paragon of sportiness, safety and efficiency.

All in all, both Mercedes-Benz GLCs have a facelift from the previous GLC 200 and 250 models and both GLCs are the 300 model too. The horsepower for both GLCs is 258 which is 30 more than the previous model. After facelift includes the LED High Performance headlamps and the rear lights as well. There is one version of the GLC Coupé 300 that sports an LED Multi-Beam headlight where there is extra lights when cornering.

The other variances of the GLCs are the diamond grille upfront for the standard and AMG version and let’s not forget that all the newer GLCs are equipped with the MBUX, the combination of touchscreen displays, navigation with augmented reality and of course, the voice command operated by saying “Hey Mercedes” which is now available in the GLCs. Only in the GLC Coupé 300, they have two digital panels including the cockpit whereas the GLC SUV 300 has one digital panel in the middle and an analog cockpit.

So make yourself available this weekend (Friday to Sunday) to view the latest GLC SUV 300 and the GLC Coupé 300. The only one available for test drive is the GLC SUV 300. It will be open from 9am to 5pm and refreshments will be provided.

The GLC Coupé at a glance

• Expressive design: The stylish appearance of the new Coupé generation encapsulates the Sensual Purity design philosophy and combines the flexibility of an SUV with the sense of style and sportiness of a coupé. The A-pillars have a more pronounced slope, which lowers the roof silhouette. The model owes much of its extraordinary character to the diamond radiator grille, which is available in silver as standard or black in conjunction with the Night package, featuring a chrome trim incorporating formal elements of the underride guard. Further eye-catching features include the standard-fit LED High Performance headlamps with their torch design and unmistakable light signature. The elegant lines are drawn to a successful conclusion by the compact rear end featuring a new-look diffuser with underride guard and tailpipe trims as well as full-LED tail lamps.

• MBUX – Innovative telematics: The combination of the touchscreen displays, navigation with augmented reality, intelligent voice control via the talk button or the “Hey Mercedes” prompt, connectivity and the user interface makes the GLC Coupé state of the art.

• Suspension: As an alternative to the standard sports suspension with adaptive damping, DYNAMIC BODY CONTROL with infinitely adjustable dampers for the steel springs on the front and rear axle is available as an option. Depending on the driving situation, speed and condition of the road, the damping is controlled individually for each wheel in interaction with the engine, transmission and steering characteristics.

• Advanced assistance systems: Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC and Active Steer Assist provide even more comfortable support to help the driver to keep a safe distance and steer. The speed is adjusted automatically ahead of bends or junctions. Active Steer Assist helps with forming an emergency corridor and with changing lanes. The risk of potential collisions can be reduced by the turn-off function of Active Brake Assist by braking if the driver fails to see oncoming traffic.

• Drive system: The GLC Coupé comes with a choice of efficient four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines from the latest generation. The diesel engines already meet the requirements of the Euro 6d standard. The petrol engines are electrified by the integration of a 48-volt on-board electrical system (EQ Boost).

The new-generation GLC Coupé is a blend of exceptional and sophisticated features, further underlining its leading position with this combination of style and ability. At present, Mercedes-Benz has a very successful presence in the SUV segment with seven models (GLA, GLC, GLC Coupé, GLE, GLE Coupé, GLS, G-Class).

It’s the time of the year again. They had one earlier this year and now another similar event where Jati Transport lucky customers will be attending the AMG Driving Event in Sepang International Circuit (all paid expense trip to Malaysia).

The draw was held earlier this afternoon at Mercedes-Benz Autohaus and all the 10 winners were drawn and an additional 4 were drawn as well, just in case some of the top 10 winners couldn’t make it for the said event.

There were 55 Mercedes-Benz models that were bought from 1st July 2018 to 30th September 2018 and all the 55 customers were entitled for the lucky draw. To make the draw legit, the draw was broadcasted live on Instagram and representatives of the media drew the shortlisted winners.

The models that were purchased ranged from the GLCs to the GLSs to the C class and many more.

This even is slated for 16th November 2018 at Sepang International Circuit, Kuala Lumpur. The Driving Event in Sepang allows participants to spend a whole day training and learning about the fundamentals of improved driving safety and driving enjoyment as well as to experience all kinds of thrills behind the wheel of a Mercedes-Benz.

So what can you expect?

Imagine this. What do you do in an emergency situation where braking is very necessary? Or you want to avoid a certain object by maneuvering the steering wheel? All these require a decision in a split second. So the Driving Event will give some theories and practicals for the participants.

You will also learn the position yourself on your driving seat. Perhaps the fun part is when you learn to oversteer and understeer. Sounds scary but fun, right? Not to worry because the courses are conducted by Mercedes-Benz certified instructors.

Apart from that, the participants will have the privilege to drive different models of the Mercedes-Benz range around the popular Sepang Circuit.

This was an event that I totally missed due to unforeseen circumstances. Mercedes-Benz Malaysia hosted a Mercedes-Benz Driving Experience #MBDE at Sepang Circuit, Selangor, Malaysia in the final week of April 2018. As part of the appreciation from Jati Transport, the authorized dealer for Mercedes-Benz for Brunei Darussalam, the said company invited a few of their customers to join the Mercedes-Benz Driving Experience during that weekend.

The customers were able to test drive many Mercedes-Benz models such as the awesome AMG C43, the AME C43 Coupe, the AMG GLC 43, the SLC 300 and the AMG GLA 45 to name a few.

The Brunei Mercedes-Benz owners were treated to a special driving session such as drifting and AMG Slalom to name a few. There were even lapping sessions starting from basic at 120km/h to 150km/h to a no speed limit session.

There were also certified driving instructors – Mikko Nassi, Nathan Antunes, Jake Fouracre, Dom Storey and Peter Hackett.

The selected Brunei customers were part of the Mercedes-Benz promotion where any passenger who registered a Mercedes from January 2018 to March 2018 will stand a chance for a driving experience in Sepang, Malaysia.

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.”

So what can you expect from the Mercedes-Benz Driving Event in Sepang, Malaysia, this year?

You will spend a whole day training and learning about the fundamentals of improved driving safety and driving enjoyment. So that confidently regaining control after a tail skid or precise steering manoeuvers at different speed levels become a matter of routine.

You also learn on having maximum concentration, fast reactions and focused precision. Experience the sporty side of driver training on this intensive training course for beginners on the race track. The handling course is available for a warm-up. Then you get closer to the perfect racing line lap by lap and find the optimum braking points. As you gain in experience, you get to know the sections of the track and the speeds at which the vehicle oversteers or understeers. Followed by a race in which you can demonstrate just how much you have learned. The perfect combination of enduring experience and memorable moments.

New AMG Emblem LED Projector now available

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

Stuttgart. After the success of the illuminated Mercedes star in the grill, the Mercedes-Benz original-parts program now offers an additional customization option based on modern LED technology: LED Projector AMG Emblem. When opening the driver’s and passenger doors, the AMG emblem is projected into the entry area in 3D with the help of the entrance lighting mechanism at the bottom of the door. The LED Projector AMG Emblem is now available at Mercedes-Benz sales partners for numerous vehicle models from A-Class to GLS.

The AMG emblem shows the cornerstones of the high performance brand, 
Mercedes-AMG: an apple tree on the river symbolizes the location in Affalterbach, Germany. The cam, valve and valve spring symbolizes the engine manufacturing. With the new AMG emblem projector, the emblem can now be projected into the entrance area next to the vehicle in a high-tech 3D look. Thus, making the ingress into a Mercedes-AMG an impressive experience.

Mercedes-Benz partners can assemble the AMG emblem LED projector in just a matter of minutes: just simply replace the factory-installed entrance lighting at the bottom of the front doors. The new projector uses state-of-the-art LED technology, consumes little power and has a long service life. Moreover, it fulfils the high quality requirements that Mercedes-Benz places on all its original parts and accessories. This new individualization option is available from the A-Class to the GLS in combination with the corresponding door lighting packages.

The AMG emblem LED projector is not only for Mercedes-AMG enthusiasts, but there is an LED projector for Mercedes-Benz drivers as well. In this case, the Mercedes star, possibly the world’s best-known trademark, is projected into the entry area when the front doors are open.

The Illuminated Mercedes Star available for many lines from the original-parts program is also a real eye-catcher. The outline of the Mercedes star centred in the radiator grille illuminates by means of the light conductors as well as LED technology, and thus adds a special look to many Mercedes-Benz models.

"
This was our car for the day – the Mercedes-Benz GLC AMG 250. So much to love about this model and it’s one of the most popular model in South East Asia.

One of the media had the opportunity to hug a tree. I should have done that. This was the 2nd round of trekking which was tougher than the first one. I survived but my sneakers were all dirty from the soft ground.
 

"
We finally worked out the navigation for easier reference while driving. Hence we realised less on waze unless we want traffic update.

A situation where there is overcrowding of Mercedes-Benz SUVs at one spot
 

"
This is a pretty sight with all the convoys of the SUVs
 

"
On our way back from the mountain and the fog started to set in pretty early
 

"
A true test when it rained and of course, the Mercedes-Benz SUVs had little trouble during the rain with some puddles along the way
 

"
After trying out the GLC AMG 43 and the GLC AMG 250, I test drove the tamer version which will be launched in Brunei in November – The GLC 200. Again, a luxurious model of its own.
 

 

"
I tested with the Sport+ and Eco mode and you can tell the difference. I even did the launch control on the long stretch at Shangri-La’s Rasa Ria. Love that adrenalin feeling.
 

"
Apart from the test drive, I love the fact that our host accommodate the invitees to stay over at Shangri-La’s Rasa Ria Resot and I truly loved the experience. I made use of the humungous bath tub outside my room.
 

"
The finale BBQ dinner to cap off the #ReadyForAdventure trip. Thanks once again!
 

"
Representatives of Jati Transport and their customers from Brunei also joined the fun 🙂
 

"
I wanted to pamper myself and indulged for a massage session at the hotel. I shall give this 4 stars for the overall experience. I even fell asleep at one stage. So good.
 

"
Only 2 nights here and I made myself so comfortable at my room at Shangri-La’s Rasa Ria. This is one of the best hotels I have stayed in 2017. Maybe the best 😀
