Introducing the Fantastic Fiat Fullback...

Welcome to the third edition of our ZIMOCO Newsletter. I am pleased to announce that we are planning the launch of some exciting new models during the last quarter of 2016. These include the new GLE, GLC, GLS and GLE Coupe models which are all in the 4 x 4 off road range. These will all be available to view in our showroom during November/December.

We are also excited to introduce the new Fiat Fullback Double Cab which is both well spec'd and well priced for our market and should suit those customers who prefer this type of utility vehicle. This will be available in our showrooms from the 1st November so please contact either our Club Chambers or Borrowdale Showroom to book a test drive.

We have just completed a training session managed by our partners Mercedes-Benz in Germany. This has brought our salesmen and technicians up to speed on all the latest technology and innovations in the Mercedes-Benz range. We were lucky to be chosen to host a regional training session with delegates from all over Africa. Quite an accolade for ZIMOCO and Zimbabwe.

Despite a struggling economy in Zimbabwe we are still managing to sell and back up our products in Harare. Obviously shortages will occur from time to time due to the lack of offshore currency but we will do our best to keep everyone on the road.

Thank you for your support and happy reading!


The Mercedes Benz GLS

ZIMOCO are excited to announce the imminent arrival of the first Mercedes-Benz GLS into Zimbabwe. The GL now becomes the new GLS and it raises the bar in the SUV world as it becomes known as the “S-Class among SUVs.” It is the only fully fledged seven seater in the European premium SUV segment. It boasts of ample spaciousness with impressive levels of luxurious comfort as well as agile dynamics and best-in-class safety features.

The new, dynamic exterior of the GLS features a re-design of the front end with power domes while the rear has been modernised with LED taillights and chrome line bumpers. The revised, first class interior features the newly designed instrument panel with semi integrated media display, the new multifunction steering wheel and a modified centre console with touchpad. Options available for the new GLS also include an ionisation system for even better interior air quality. Furthermore, state of the art connectivity and infotainment are optionally provided by the latest generation of COMAND Online which features an 8 inch glass colour media display as well as an intuitive touchpad.

Compared with its predecessor, the new generation features improved efficiency, extended DYNAMIC SELECT transmission modes for all terrains and the latest air suspension system, AIRMATIC, with enhanced damping system (ADS) to make your journey on-road or off-road more comfortable. The new GLS also features a 9 speed 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission gearbox as well as state of the art assistance systems fitted as standard. These include, COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS, Crosswind Assist and ATTENTION ASSIST.

All the engines provide better performance with reduced consumption values in some cases. Models available include the GLS 350d 4MATIC (V6 Diesel), the GLS 400 4MATIC (V6 Petrol), the GLS 500 4MATIC (V8 Petrol) and the Mercedes-AMG GLS 63 4MATIC (5.5 Litre V8 Bi-Turbo Petrol).

Global training

Last week, ZIMOCO had the pleasure of hosting Mercedes-Benz Global Training for Passenger Cars, lead by Mr Uwe Strauss from Stuttgart in Germany. East African Mercedes-Benz Distributors from Ethiopia, Uganda, Tanzania, Kenya, Malawi and Zambia came to Zimbabwe to attend the five day Daimler training programme at our ZIMOCO Showgrounds and Club Chambers Showroom.

Mr Uwe Strauss has been with Daimler-Benz AG since 1987 and has an incredible knowledge and passion for the Mercedes-Benz brand and products. The course looked at the new Mercedes-Benz SUV range which included the Mercedes-Benz GLS, which is about to arrive in Zimbabwe, the Mercedes-Benz GLC and the Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe, which has just been launched in Europe. The focus was on Off-Road solutions, looking at the different Drive Select Modes and Off-Road Engineering Packages for all SUV models.

Mr Strauss also focused on the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and its new features such as the new Intelligent Drive Systems, new Agility/Drive Select Programs and the introduction of the new Telematics System, NTG 5.5, of the E-Class.

This Mercedes-Benz Global Training was invaluable to ZIMOCO’s sales and after sales staff and it has reinforced our commitment of being, “The best or nothing."
