Keeping you updated with our latest products...

Welcome to the latest issue of our popular newsletter which I hope you are enjoying reading. We try to keep you updated with the latest products from our suppliers as well as keeping you informed of any local developments.

One of our representatives, Raymond Makombe, recently attended a new product forum on Jeep, Chrysler and Alfa Romeo products in Morocco. He was privileged to be shown some startling new models that will be coming to Zimbabwe within the next twelve months. These included the New Jeep Compass which is stunning and will certainly conquer the small to medium range SUV market. He also saw the new Alfa Romeo SUV which is a seriously good looking vehicle and is called the Stelvio. Watch out for these new editions coming to Zimbabwe soon. We will keep you posted.

With the Easter holidays over we suggest you get your vehicle quickly checked over in our workshops. The extra large potholes that have appeared on our roads with the late rains are a menace to your car’s suspension and wheel alignment so a check is well recommended.

You may have heard rumours about our new venture in Borrowdale, well they are true! We are going to build a new state-of-the-art showroom to house both Mercedes-Benz and Jeep! We hope to be open in the next few months so keep a lookout for this exciting new venture which shows our commitment to you and our flagship brands.

I hope you have all enjoyed the Easter break and we look forward to keeping you all informed and safely on the roads in our new products.

Best regards,

Bob Crossley


The new S-Class celebrates its world premiere with extensive innovations at the Shanghai Autoshow and becomes the leader in the premium segment. Ola Källenius, on the Board of Daimler AG for Group Research and Mercedes-Benz Cars Development said, “The development of the new S-Class was extremely extensive. With a whole series of new features and functions the S-Class remains the technological pioneer”. This Mercedes-Benz top-of-the-range model takes another big step towards autonomous driving and takes Intelligent Drive to the next level. DISTRONIC Active Proximity Control and Active Steer Assist now provide even more comfortable support for the driver to keep a safe distance and steer. Furthermore, the speed is now adjusted automatically ahead of curves or junctions. MULTIBEAM LED headlamps and ULTRA RANGE High Beam turn night into day. ROAD SURFACE SCAN, the forward-looking detection of bumps, and the curve-tilting function CURVE are further unique features of the S-Class in the segment of luxury saloons.

The interior of the new S-Class is characterised by the two new high-resolution displays, each with a screen diagonal of 12.3 inches. Visually, the two displays under one shared glass cover blend into a wide-screen cockpit. The instrument cluster contains a large display with virtual instruments in the direct field of vision of the driver as well as a central display above the centre console. The new S-Class has touch-sensitive controls in the steering wheel. They respond to swiping motions like the screen of a smartphone and enable the driver to control the entire infotainment system without having to take their hands off the steering wheel. The operation of DISTRONIC and cruise control with control elements directly on the steering wheel is another new feature.

High quality materials define the interior of the S-Class which include open-pore woods as well as leather-trimmed doors and upper body edges. As before, the interior lighting uses only long-lasting, energy saving LED technology and with 64 colours, the optionally extended ambient lighting offers a wealth of individual settings.

In the new S-Class the new in-line six-cylinder diesel engine makes its debut. Even though it has noticeably more power than its predecessor, the new engine consumes over 7% less fuel. The new V8 in the S560 4MATIC and Mercedes-Maybach S 560 4MATIC is among the most economical V8 petrol engines in the world and consumes about 10% less fuel than the predecessor. In addition to the aforementioned engines, further new power units are planned for the new S-Class, including in-line six-cylinder petrol engines.
