00:01:00,239 –> 00:01:05,199
back and this is what it looks like

27
00:01:02,000 –> 00:01:07,680
okay this is the actual camera installed

28
00:01:05,199 –> 00:01:08,240
uh on this car so first of the adaes

29
00:01:07,680 –> 00:01:11,040
features

30
00:01:08,240 –> 00:01:12,720
is it has built-in gps okay so you can

31
00:01:11,040 –> 00:01:13,520
actually track your speed and location

32
00:01:12,720 –> 00:01:15,280
using

33
00:01:13,520 –> 00:01:16,720
the built-in software that comes with

34
00:01:15,280 –> 00:01:18,720
the dash cam

35
00:01:16,720 –> 00:01:19,920
second it has the lane departure warning

36
00:01:18,720 –> 00:01:22,640

00:01:19,920 –> 00:01:22,960
also it has the front collision warning

38
00:01:22,640 –> 00:01:24,320
so

39
00:01:22,960 –> 00:01:26,080
let’s say you’re too close to the car in

40
00:01:24,320 –> 00:01:26,640
front this dash cam will actually warn

41
00:01:26,080 –> 00:01:28,479
you

42
00:01:26,640 –> 00:01:30,240
and it also has i think one of the most

43
00:01:28,479 –> 00:01:30,799
important things the parking mode

44
00:01:30,240 –> 00:01:32,880
feature

45
00:01:30,799 –> 00:01:34,799

47
00:01:34,799 –> 00:01:39,200
any motion or collision

48
00:01:36,479 –> 00:01:40,640
it also records so that you know like

49
00:01:39,200 –> 00:01:42,079
hit and run cases let’s say you park

50
00:01:40,640 –> 00:01:45,040
your car someone hits you

51
00:01:42,079 –> 00:01:46,479
and then tries to like drive off without

52
00:01:45,040 –> 00:01:48,320
leaving a note or anything

53
00:01:46,479 –> 00:01:50,000
it will actually record so you it’s

54
00:01:48,320 –> 00:01:50,720
easier for you to make your claims and

55
00:01:50,000 –> 00:01:54,000
all that

56
00:01:50,720 –> 00:01:55,920

81
00:02:37,360 –> 00:02:40,640
inside do you do you notice that

82
00:02:38,879 –> 00:02:43,519
whenever you get into a must you get

83
00:02:40,640 –> 00:02:44,560
that kind of certain kind of smell from

84
00:02:43,519 –> 00:02:47,120
the interior

85
00:02:44,560 –> 00:02:50,319
is it the old man smell yeah that’s what

86
00:02:47,120 –> 00:02:51,440
i was thinking

87
00:02:50,319 –> 00:02:53,280
there’s a there’s always that

88
00:02:51,440 –> 00:02:54,160
distinctive smell that you get whenever

89
00:02:53,280 –> 00:02:57,200
you go into the

90
00:02:54,160 –> 00:02:59,760
mother um so far most smurfs that i go

91
00:02:57,200 –> 00:03:01,360
into they have this kind of smell

92
00:02:59,760 –> 00:03:03,200
is it a good smell or is it a bad smell

93
00:03:01,360 –> 00:03:03,920
well it’s probably the older gentleman

94
00:03:03,200 –> 00:03:05,770
kind of smells

95
00:03:03,920 –> 00:03:09,360
not bad

96
00:03:05,770 –> 00:03:12,159
[Laughter]

97
00:03:09,360 –> 00:03:12,800
just kidding i understand the appeal of

98
00:03:12,159 –> 00:03:15,760
this car

99
00:03:12,800 –> 00:03:16,640
because the exterior looks very it’s a

100
00:03:15,760 –> 00:03:20,239
good looking car

101
00:03:16,640 –> 00:03:22,560
okay this the f30

102
00:03:20,239 –> 00:03:26,120
3 series the same generation as this car

103
00:03:22,560 –> 00:03:29,599
the f3 series and the b

104
00:03:26,120 –> 00:03:34,080
8.5 the 8.5

105
00:03:29,599 –> 00:03:35,760
and the b9 audi a4 i think this is the

106
00:03:34,080 –> 00:03:37,840
this is probably the most good looking

107
00:03:35,760 –> 00:03:39,840
uh car in the segment

108
00:03:37,840 –> 00:03:40,879
and the car from the outside it doesn’t

109
00:03:39,840 –> 00:03:43,360
actually look

110
00:03:40,879 –> 00:03:45,200
that big it looks quite small right from

111
00:03:43,360 –> 00:03:46,879
some angles it looks like a girl’s car

112
00:03:45,200 –> 00:03:48,799
i’m not saying that it’s for girls only

113
00:03:46,879 –> 00:03:50,560
but you know from some angle this is my

114
00:03:48,799 –> 00:03:52,400
my opinion like it looks like a girl’s

115
00:03:50,560 –> 00:03:55,280
car but it’s not

116
00:03:52,400 –> 00:04:01,840
obviously okay that’s why some of the

117
00:03:55,280 –> 00:04:01,840
men like it because it’s got nice curves

118
00:04:05,439 –> 00:04:08,640
uh and of course because the mercedes

119
00:04:07,840 –> 00:04:10,959
like logo

120
00:04:08,640 –> 00:04:12,000
the three-pointed star is so damn big at

121
00:04:10,959 –> 00:04:13,680
the front

122
00:04:12,000 –> 00:04:16,160
yeah that’s also another appeal of this

123
00:04:13,680 –> 00:04:19,359
car i guess first impressions of driving

124
00:04:16,160 –> 00:04:19,359
the c200

125
00:04:19,680 –> 00:04:23,360
it feels like a small car the inside is

126
00:04:22,160 –> 00:04:24,960
not very

127
00:04:23,360 –> 00:04:26,800
spacious i don’t feel like it’s very

128
00:04:24,960 –> 00:04:30,080
spacious

129
00:04:26,800 –> 00:04:31,919
steering is very light then the big

130
00:04:30,080 –> 00:04:35,840
brother of the sea cross the e

131
00:04:31,919 –> 00:04:37,840
class anyway um yeah steering is very

132
00:04:35,840 –> 00:04:40,240
light

133
00:04:37,840 –> 00:04:42,240
visibility all around is actually quite

134
00:04:40,240 –> 00:04:44,080
good i don’t know what kind of mirror

135
00:04:42,240 –> 00:04:45,840
they are using but it feels like the

136
00:04:44,080 –> 00:04:46,960
back of the car is closer to me than it

137
00:04:45,840 –> 00:04:50,880
actually is

138
00:04:46,960 –> 00:04:51,840
so i like just the view out the car is

139
00:04:50,880 –> 00:04:54,639
quite good

140
00:04:51,840 –> 00:04:55,680
and yeah i really like i don’t know how

141
00:04:54,639 –> 00:04:57,199
they

142
00:04:55,680 –> 00:04:58,720
position this mirror or what kind of

143
00:04:57,199 –> 00:05:00,479
mirror they are using but

144
00:04:58,720 –> 00:05:02,639
i feel like the back of the yeah the

145
00:05:00,479 –> 00:05:05,360
rear um windows are quite

146
00:05:02,639 –> 00:05:07,199
close to me so it gives me that sense of

147
00:05:05,360 –> 00:05:08,960
like security like i’m always aware of

148
00:05:07,199 –> 00:05:12,800
what’s going on around

149
00:05:08,960 –> 00:05:15,680
so that’s quite nice wow

150
00:05:12,800 –> 00:05:18,080
the pickup is strong and i’m only in

151
00:05:15,680 –> 00:05:20,320
comfort mode you know i’m not even in

152
00:05:18,080 –> 00:05:25,840
sports mode let me try putting it into

153
00:05:20,320 –> 00:05:25,840
sports mode

154
00:05:25,919 –> 00:05:29,360
okay the brakes are the brakes are quite

155
00:05:28,240 –> 00:05:33,280
good as well

156
00:05:29,360 –> 00:05:34,800
not too big but like you see i

157
00:05:33,280 –> 00:05:36,320
had to apply quite a lot of pressure

158
00:05:34,800 –> 00:05:37,199
just now because the traffic light was

159
00:05:36,320 –> 00:05:40,400
uh

160
00:05:37,199 –> 00:05:42,320
burning rate so yeah not too bitey but

161
00:05:40,400 –> 00:05:43,840
it still stops the car very well

162
00:05:42,320 –> 00:05:45,360
one thing i noticed is that every time i

163
00:05:43,840 –> 00:05:46,800
stop this car or maybe because i’m in

164
00:05:45,360 –> 00:05:49,840
comfort mode

165
00:05:46,800 –> 00:05:53,199
the engine auto start stop activates

166
00:05:49,840 –> 00:05:55,759
automatically so that’s quite annoying

167
00:05:53,199 –> 00:05:56,880
yeah you see right now i’m in sports

168
00:05:55,759 –> 00:06:00,000
mode right and

169
00:05:56,880 –> 00:06:01,680
the engine auto start stop like it just

170
00:06:00,000 –> 00:06:02,400
turns on after i move off i don’t know

171
00:06:01,680 –> 00:06:04,479
why

172
00:06:02,400 –> 00:06:06,080
this car doesn’t have killers entry as

173
00:06:04,479 –> 00:06:07,840
in the spec this car okay

174
00:06:06,080 –> 00:06:09,680
like this car doesn’t come equipped with

175
00:06:07,840 –> 00:06:10,800
that what were you as a passenger what

176
00:06:09,680 –> 00:06:13,120
do you feel

177
00:06:10,800 –> 00:06:14,960
it it’s actually quite bumpy to me i was

178
00:06:13,120 –> 00:06:17,919
expecting it to be a bit more

179
00:06:14,960 –> 00:06:19,120
refined yeah comfortable yeah that’s why

180
00:06:17,919 –> 00:06:20,080
i don’t know to me i feel like it’s

181
00:06:19,120 –> 00:06:22,960
comfortable enough

182
00:06:20,080 –> 00:06:24,240
but maybe we’ll go drive a bit more let

183
00:06:22,960 –> 00:06:25,919
me see what it’s like and this car is

184
00:06:24,240 –> 00:06:28,720
like what six years already

185
00:06:25,919 –> 00:06:30,160
so you can see that um overall the

186
00:06:28,720 –> 00:06:32,000
materials right they still

187
00:06:30,160 –> 00:06:33,440
hold up quite well one thing i want to

188
00:06:32,000 –> 00:06:34,479
point out is that the steering wheel is

189
00:06:33,440 –> 00:06:37,600
the thing that

190
00:06:34,479 –> 00:06:39,440
looks the most aged in this car because

191
00:06:37,600 –> 00:06:41,840
you step in right everything looks okay

192
00:06:39,440 –> 00:06:43,360
but the steering wheel you can see that

193
00:06:41,840 –> 00:06:46,479
it’s starting to

194
00:06:43,360 –> 00:06:49,039
lose a bit of its shine you know like

195
00:06:46,479 –> 00:06:50,560
it doesn’t look as pristine and as new

196
00:06:49,039 –> 00:06:54,400
as the rest of the

197
00:06:50,560 –> 00:06:57,520
car seats are comfortable here are your

198
00:06:54,400 –> 00:06:58,960
steering your seat controls

199
00:06:57,520 –> 00:07:00,319
yeah the interior of the car holding up

200
00:06:58,960 –> 00:07:01,759
quite well i have to say even though

201
00:07:00,319 –> 00:07:02,160
they pop the car under the sun and all

202
00:07:01,759 –> 00:07:03,759
that

203
00:07:02,160 –> 00:07:05,360
it’s still holding up quite well and

204
00:07:03,759 –> 00:07:07,599
this beige interior

205
00:07:05,360 –> 00:07:09,280
just makes the car feel that more

206
00:07:07,599 –> 00:07:11,280
premium as compared to like a full

207
00:07:09,280 –> 00:07:13,199
black interior that you get in quite a

208
00:07:11,280 –> 00:07:16,639
lot of c-classes

209
00:07:13,199 –> 00:07:18,240
c-class c-classes yeah with a five to

210
00:07:16,639 –> 00:07:18,800
six year old car i think this car is

211
00:07:18,240 –> 00:07:21,039
useful like

212
00:07:18,800 –> 00:07:22,560
events or when they need to like rent

213
00:07:21,039 –> 00:07:23,680
out a car or like they want to test

214
00:07:22,560 –> 00:07:26,880
products like this

215
00:07:23,680 –> 00:07:29,199
dash cam on this car this yeah they they

216
00:07:26,880 –> 00:07:30,080
use this car because i can tell from the

217
00:07:29,199 –> 00:07:31,919
condition outside

218
00:07:30,080 –> 00:07:33,360
you know it doesn’t look like an owner’s

219
00:07:31,919 –> 00:07:35,440
car but if you look at the interior

220
00:07:33,360 –> 00:07:38,400
everything still looks pretty

221
00:07:35,440 –> 00:07:40,479
good okay the only exception is the

222
00:07:38,400 –> 00:07:42,880
steering wheel starts to look

223
00:07:40,479 –> 00:07:44,879
a bit faded like you can see the just

224
00:07:42,880 –> 00:07:46,479
the plastics and all they start to

225
00:07:44,879 –> 00:07:48,160
they’re starting to fade a little bit

226
00:07:46,479 –> 00:07:52,800
the leather here

227
00:07:48,160 –> 00:07:56,639
also doesn’t look as shiny or as

228
00:07:52,800 –> 00:07:57,759
premium as brand new but the rest of the

229
00:07:56,639 –> 00:08:00,319
car right

230
00:07:57,759 –> 00:08:01,440
like the fit and finish still holds up

231
00:08:00,319 –> 00:08:03,680
very well so you can see like the

232
00:08:01,440 –> 00:08:06,400
leather there’s no no leather peeled off

233
00:08:03,680 –> 00:08:06,960
the buttons and all over the buttons and

234
00:08:06,400 –> 00:08:09,199
all that

235
00:08:06,960 –> 00:08:11,680
still intact you know the like the

236
00:08:09,199 –> 00:08:13,840
markings and all are still there

237
00:08:11,680 –> 00:08:16,160
so overall like the leather the plastics

238
00:08:13,840 –> 00:08:17,840
the metal finishing inside the car

239
00:08:16,160 –> 00:08:19,680
is still holding up quite well after

240
00:08:17,840 –> 00:08:23,919
like six years

241
00:08:19,680 –> 00:08:25,599
six to seven years of use okay

242
00:08:23,919 –> 00:08:27,680
yeah they use metal on a lot quite a lot

243
00:08:25,599 –> 00:08:28,639
of the buttons here and even on the door

244
00:08:27,680 –> 00:08:30,639
here and your

245
00:08:28,639 –> 00:08:32,320
seat controls your window controls so

246
00:08:30,639 –> 00:08:35,440
they actually like last

247
00:08:32,320 –> 00:08:37,279
longer and yeah they feel fantastic

248
00:08:35,440 –> 00:08:39,440
when you touch it yeah it just feels

249
00:08:37,279 –> 00:08:44,159
fantastic very very nice

250
00:08:39,440 –> 00:08:47,200
buttons to touch to more or less

251
00:08:44,159 –> 00:08:50,000
these are the buttons another thing is

252
00:08:47,200 –> 00:08:52,080
that this car doesn’t have cup holders

253
00:08:50,000 –> 00:08:54,000
like it doesn’t have proper cup holders

254
00:08:52,080 –> 00:08:55,839
okay so you get this space here for you

255
00:08:54,000 –> 00:08:58,560
to put your drinks but

256
00:08:55,839 –> 00:09:01,120
i don’t think it’s as secure as proper

257
00:08:58,560 –> 00:09:01,120
cup holders

258
00:09:01,519 –> 00:09:08,480
storage compartments i would say

259
00:09:04,720 –> 00:09:11,519
quite decent for a car of this size okay

260
00:09:08,480 –> 00:09:13,040
all right then boogies here go with

261
00:09:11,519 –> 00:09:16,480
mercedes all

262
00:09:13,040 –> 00:09:17,760
go drink by sarbat so you can see that

263
00:09:16,480 –> 00:09:20,560
the car has

264
00:09:17,760 –> 00:09:22,320
a reverse camera with guidance lines

265
00:09:20,560 –> 00:09:22,959
although the camera i have to say it’s

266
00:09:22,320 –> 00:09:24,560
not

267
00:09:22,959 –> 00:09:26,959
i don’t know whether it’s foggy or what

268
00:09:24,560 –> 00:09:27,760
but it’s not the resolution isn’t the

269
00:09:26,959 –> 00:09:30,399
best

270
00:09:27,760 –> 00:09:31,760
infotainment this is something to be

271
00:09:30,399 –> 00:09:33,279
honest i don’t really like about

272
00:09:31,760 –> 00:09:35,120
mercedes because

273
00:09:33,279 –> 00:09:38,560
the infotainment is not as easy to use

274
00:09:35,120 –> 00:09:41,440
as a bmw i drive system or an audi

275
00:09:38,560 –> 00:09:43,600
mmi system okay so if you look at the

276
00:09:41,440 –> 00:09:46,080
infotainment here

277
00:09:43,600 –> 00:09:47,600
they are like overlapping menus what i

278
00:09:46,080 –> 00:09:48,399
mean by that is that these are like the

279
00:09:47,600 –> 00:09:49,760
main

280
00:09:48,399 –> 00:09:51,920
things you should focus on right now

281
00:09:49,760 –> 00:09:54,480
this is what’s in view

282
00:09:51,920 –> 00:09:56,160
but you can also see like vehicle

283
00:09:54,480 –> 00:09:57,920
settings consumption all in the

284
00:09:56,160 –> 00:10:02,640
background so it’s a bit like

285
00:09:57,920 –> 00:10:04,720
distracting you see it’s

286
00:10:02,640 –> 00:10:06,720
when you move down like to a sub menu

287
00:10:04,720 –> 00:10:07,760
the top should at least like disappear

288
00:10:06,720 –> 00:10:10,880
okay like now

289
00:10:07,760 –> 00:10:13,440
but you know it doesn’t do that so

290
00:10:10,880 –> 00:10:15,200
that’s one thing i wanna say and also

291
00:10:13,440 –> 00:10:19,839
okay the radio part is

292
00:10:15,200 –> 00:10:19,839
quite straightforward quite easy to use

293
00:10:19,920 –> 00:10:23,440
but it’s just overall it’s not the

294
00:10:22,800 –> 00:10:26,480
easiest

295
00:10:23,440 –> 00:10:29,440
it takes a while for you to like find

296
00:10:26,480 –> 00:10:30,839
where everything is and get used to okay

297
00:10:29,440 –> 00:10:33,360
surprisingly

298
00:10:30,839 –> 00:10:35,120
spacious like okay this seat is in my

299
00:10:33,360 –> 00:10:37,760
original driver’s position

300
00:10:35,120 –> 00:10:39,120
you can see i get like more than one

301
00:10:37,760 –> 00:10:41,360
knuckle of

302
00:10:39,120 –> 00:10:42,399
leg room okay there’s plenty of space

303
00:10:41,360 –> 00:10:44,160
for my feet

304
00:10:42,399 –> 00:10:47,040
however your thai support is not

305
00:10:44,160 –> 00:10:50,160
fantastic okay because the seat here

306
00:10:47,040 –> 00:10:52,399
this seat is quite short okay so the

307
00:10:50,160 –> 00:10:54,880
thai support is not that great

308
00:10:52,399 –> 00:10:56,800
but space wise it’s pretty good

309
00:10:54,880 –> 00:10:59,200
especially considering the

310
00:10:56,800 –> 00:11:00,560
size of this car because in like some

311
00:10:59,200 –> 00:11:02,560
other cars like maybe

312
00:11:00,560 –> 00:11:04,160
a three series for example you i don’t

313
00:11:02,560 –> 00:11:06,560
think you get as much

314
00:11:04,160 –> 00:11:07,519
uh space in the back as in this car

315
00:11:06,560 –> 00:11:10,399
however

316
00:11:07,519 –> 00:11:11,040
the center transmission panel is very

317
00:11:10,399 –> 00:11:15,200
very big

318
00:11:11,040 –> 00:11:18,560
as you can see so this is very

319
00:11:15,200 –> 00:11:19,760
intrusive yeah so that’s how you’re

320
00:11:18,560 –> 00:11:22,640
gonna

321
00:11:19,760 –> 00:11:23,040
sit all right space in the back not as

322
00:11:22,640 –> 00:11:25,839
bad

323
00:11:23,040 –> 00:11:26,640
as i thought it would be maybe because

324
00:11:25,839 –> 00:11:28,800
the

325
00:11:26,640 –> 00:11:31,920
interior color is also beige so it looks

326
00:11:28,800 –> 00:11:31,920
bigger than it actually is

327
00:11:40,160 –> 00:11:46,160
oh and that’s a ferrari f430

328
00:11:43,600 –> 00:11:46,959
here come let’s let’s race with the one

329
00:11:46,160 –> 00:11:49,839
point

330
00:11:46,959 –> 00:11:52,000
let’s use this 1.6 turbo and keep up

331
00:11:49,839 –> 00:11:54,399
with the ferrari f430

332
00:11:52,000 –> 00:11:55,360
so you see i can keep up perfectly fine

333
00:11:54,399 –> 00:11:58,399
with a

334
00:11:55,360 –> 00:12:01,839
ferrari f430 so end of the day why

335
00:11:58,399 –> 00:12:04,000
pay the rotax i pay the kind of

336
00:12:01,839 –> 00:12:04,720
ridiculous rotax when you can get a 1.6

337
00:12:04,000 –> 00:12:07,920
in

338
00:12:04,720 –> 00:12:11,519
you get the same kind of performance

339
00:12:07,920 –> 00:12:13,120
you know i’m just kidding okay

340
00:12:11,519 –> 00:12:15,680
okay one thing i want to point out also

341
00:12:13,120 –> 00:12:18,959
is that the gear lever for this car

342
00:12:15,680 –> 00:12:20,800
is here okay there’s no

343
00:12:18,959 –> 00:12:22,160
gear lever over here this is all your

344
00:12:20,800 –> 00:12:23,680
infotainment controls

345
00:12:22,160 –> 00:12:25,360
and what the most annoying thing about

346
00:12:23,680 –> 00:12:27,519
this guy is the auto start stop it just

347
00:12:25,360 –> 00:12:30,639
activates no matter what mode i mean

348
00:12:27,519 –> 00:12:32,240
let me put it into sports plus

349
00:12:30,639 –> 00:12:33,760
okay so right now we are in sports plus

350
00:12:32,240 –> 00:12:37,040
mode you you feel that

351
00:12:33,760 –> 00:12:39,440
like the engine is very responsive like

352
00:12:37,040 –> 00:12:41,279
you just tap the throttle a bit and then

353
00:12:39,440 –> 00:12:43,360
the car will like search forward

354
00:12:41,279 –> 00:12:45,200
yeah search and search and search with

355
00:12:43,360 –> 00:12:46,800
every tap of the throttle

356
00:12:45,200 –> 00:12:48,880
this feels like it’s ready to take off

357
00:12:46,800 –> 00:12:51,600
anytime soon

358
00:12:48,880 –> 00:12:52,720
yeah but there’s a suzuki liana in front

359
00:12:51,600 –> 00:12:55,839
of me

360
00:12:52,720 –> 00:12:55,839
not giving me space

361
00:12:56,959 –> 00:13:00,320
to unleash this car’s potential okay

362
00:12:59,440 –> 00:13:07,839
yeah

363
00:13:00,320 –> 00:13:07,839
can’t catch up with that ferrari

364
00:13:10,240 –> 00:13:13,440
this car feels much more nicer today

365
00:13:12,079 –> 00:13:15,440
than the w204c

366
00:13:13,440 –> 00:13:16,480
class the generation that came before

367
00:13:15,440 –> 00:13:18,720
this

368
00:13:16,480 –> 00:13:20,399
that one uh i feel like the transmission

369
00:13:18,720 –> 00:13:23,440
is a bit uh

370
00:13:20,399 –> 00:13:25,760
what’s the word for it a bit clunky

371
00:13:23,440 –> 00:13:27,200
yeah this one feels a bit more refined

372
00:13:25,760 –> 00:13:28,399
but of course i’ve only been driving

373
00:13:27,200 –> 00:13:30,959
this car for like

374
00:13:28,399 –> 00:13:32,800
15 minutes i think so i’ll have to drive

375
00:13:30,959 –> 00:13:34,800
it a bit more to get a proper opinion

376
00:13:32,800 –> 00:13:36,320
this also comes with the pedal shifters

377
00:13:34,800 –> 00:13:38,560
so that’s quite nice although this is

378
00:13:36,320 –> 00:13:40,320
plastic okay it’s not the like single

379
00:13:38,560 –> 00:13:41,839
piece aluminium you get in other cars so

380
00:13:40,320 –> 00:13:42,320
we’ve actually been driving this car

381
00:13:41,839 –> 00:13:46,560
around

382
00:13:42,320 –> 00:13:50,000
for the past four or five hours i think

383
00:13:46,560 –> 00:13:53,440
our overall thoughts on this car

384
00:13:50,000 –> 00:13:56,639
first of all it’s actually quite

385
00:13:53,440 –> 00:14:00,480
a pleasant car to drive why

386
00:13:56,639 –> 00:14:03,120
because it feels small

387
00:14:00,480 –> 00:14:04,720
the bonnet is very visible so it’s very

388
00:14:03,120 –> 00:14:05,519
easy for me to gauge the front of the

389
00:14:04,720 –> 00:14:09,040
car

390
00:14:05,519 –> 00:14:11,199
visibility all around fantastic the

391
00:14:09,040 –> 00:14:12,480
like i mentioned just now the rear view

392
00:14:11,199 –> 00:14:15,440
mirror and the

393
00:14:12,480 –> 00:14:17,360
side mirror they make the objects look

394
00:14:15,440 –> 00:14:17,839
very much closer to me than they

395
00:14:17,360 –> 00:14:20,160
actually

396
00:14:17,839 –> 00:14:20,959
are okay so for me i like that kind of

397
00:14:20,160 –> 00:14:24,880
feeling

398
00:14:20,959 –> 00:14:26,959
because you know it it just feels nicer

399
00:14:24,880 –> 00:14:28,560
okay the car itself very easy to drive

400
00:14:26,959 –> 00:14:30,720
steering wheel is very light

401
00:14:28,560 –> 00:14:32,639
the engine is smooth transmission the 90

402
00:14:30,720 –> 00:14:35,680
tronic very smooth also

403
00:14:32,639 –> 00:14:38,000
however the suspension this doesn’t have

404
00:14:35,680 –> 00:14:41,519
the automatic suspension so

405
00:14:38,000 –> 00:14:44,079
you can feel the imperfections the rear

406
00:14:41,519 –> 00:14:44,959
undulations yeah yeah you can actually

407
00:14:44,079 –> 00:14:47,199
feel them

408
00:14:44,959 –> 00:14:48,240
yeah you feel every bump along the way

409
00:14:47,199 –> 00:14:51,600
actually yeah

410
00:14:48,240 –> 00:14:54,000
for a mercedes it’s a bit stiff but

411
00:14:51,600 –> 00:14:55,760
generally i think it’s okay it’s just

412
00:14:54,000 –> 00:14:57,120
that mercedes yeah the perception

413
00:14:55,760 –> 00:14:58,639
you know it’s supposed to be very smooth

414
00:14:57,120 –> 00:15:00,000
blah blah supposed to be a very cushiony

415
00:14:58,639 –> 00:15:03,120
right yeah

416
00:15:00,000 –> 00:15:05,680
kind of like right but with this car

417
00:15:03,120 –> 00:15:06,160
not so much but it’s not a deal breaker

418
00:15:05,680 –> 00:15:09,360
okay

419
00:15:06,160 –> 00:15:11,279
really it’s good enough for i think

420
00:15:09,360 –> 00:15:13,199
most people yeah i think like what you

421
00:15:11,279 –> 00:15:15,600
mentioned the smoothness of the engine

422
00:15:13,199 –> 00:15:16,560
and then the transmission and all that

423
00:15:15,600 –> 00:15:19,519
it makes up for that

424
00:15:16,560 –> 00:15:22,399
yeah yeah also this car is a big

425
00:15:19,519 –> 00:15:23,920
improvement over the over the w-204

426
00:15:22,399 –> 00:15:25,519
if you’re looking to upgrade yeah i

427
00:15:23,920 –> 00:15:26,800
would say just go and upgrade the

428
00:15:25,519 –> 00:15:29,920
interior looks better

429
00:15:26,800 –> 00:15:31,199
exterior looks better the engine is okay

430
00:15:29,920 –> 00:15:35,360
the engine is uh

431
00:15:31,199 –> 00:15:38,000
just as smooth as the w204 but

432
00:15:35,360 –> 00:15:39,040
uh this overall the drive the driving

433
00:15:38,000 –> 00:15:41,279
dynamics

434
00:15:39,040 –> 00:15:42,959
of this car i feel like it’s much better

435
00:15:41,279 –> 00:15:46,560
the gearbox is also better

436
00:15:42,959 –> 00:15:49,360
okay not so clunky because this car is a

437
00:15:46,560 –> 00:15:49,839
this is a c200 not a c180 not considered

438
00:15:49,360 –> 00:15:51,519
like

439
00:15:49,839 –> 00:15:53,440
slightly more attached than the base

440
00:15:51,519 –> 00:15:56,079
variant c180

441
00:15:53,440 –> 00:15:57,600
so this has a bit more like you know you

442
00:15:56,079 –> 00:15:59,680
have a bit more power

443
00:15:57,600 –> 00:16:01,040
you can actually drag the car faster you

444
00:15:59,680 –> 00:16:02,639
definitely feel it

445
00:16:01,040 –> 00:16:04,160
during the pickup when you are moving

446
00:16:02,639 –> 00:16:06,839
off yeah pickup is very good

447
00:16:04,160 –> 00:16:09,199
it feels faster than 7.3 second zero to

448
00:16:06,839 –> 00:16:12,240
100

449
00:16:09,199 –> 00:16:15,680
also it’s quite i won’t say it’s as like

450
00:16:12,240 –> 00:16:17,920
tight as a three series but it’s still

451
00:16:15,680 –> 00:16:18,720
i won’t say it’s the far it’s a fun car

452
00:16:17,920 –> 00:16:22,000
to drive

453
00:16:18,720 –> 00:16:24,160
but it’s a very good drive okay it’s not

454
00:16:22,000 –> 00:16:25,120
as boring as you’d expect from like

455
00:16:24,160 –> 00:16:27,519
maybe

456
00:16:25,120 –> 00:16:30,320
older mercedes and yeah like i mentioned

457
00:16:27,519 –> 00:16:33,360
it’s a big improvement over the w-204

458
00:16:30,320 –> 00:16:36,320
okay in terms of uh everything

459
00:16:33,360 –> 00:16:39,040
yeah the only thing i dislike about this

460
00:16:36,320 –> 00:16:41,759
car probably would be the infotainment

461
00:16:39,040 –> 00:16:43,759
not the easiest to use another thing i

462
00:16:41,759 –> 00:16:46,720
want to point out is that

463
00:16:43,759 –> 00:16:47,839
i reset the trip computer but it hasn’t

464
00:16:46,720 –> 00:16:51,040
changed

465
00:16:47,839 –> 00:16:54,959
until now so it’s showing that i’m still

466
00:16:51,040 –> 00:16:56,399
um consuming about 20 liters for 100

467
00:16:54,959 –> 00:17:02,399
kilometers

468
00:16:56,399 –> 00:17:02,399
that’s about five kilometer no that’s uh

469
00:17:02,639 –> 00:17:06,799
20 yeah that’s about five kilometers per

470
00:17:05,520 –> 00:17:09,919
liter

471
00:17:06,799 –> 00:17:12,880
which is not true obviously um

472
00:17:09,919 –> 00:17:13,839
but i don’t know why it hasn’t reset yet

473
00:17:12,880 –> 00:17:15,520
so yeah overall

474
00:17:13,839 –> 00:17:18,240
those are my thoughts on the car that’s

475
00:17:15,520 –> 00:17:19,919
a fantastic upgrade over the w204

476
00:17:18,240 –> 00:17:22,400
could come with a few more features like

477
00:17:19,919 –> 00:17:24,799
your driving assistance package

478
00:17:22,400 –> 00:17:26,640
keyless entry and all that yeah yeah but

479
00:17:24,799 –> 00:17:28,640
i think this car was inspected with that

480
00:17:26,640 –> 00:17:30,400
so yeah that’s about it for this review

481
00:17:28,640 –> 00:17:37,919
thanks guys for watching

482
00:17:30,400 –> 00:17:37,919
i’ll see you next time see you
