Beirut will be witnessing distinctive moments with the start of 2012 as T. Gargour & Fils S.A.L., the exclusive and sole agent of Mercedes-Benz in Lebanon, prepares the reveal of its long-awaited and much anticipated all-new ‘M-Class’ 2013.
The third generation of the M-Class sets new benchmarks in the SUV world with its leading-edge automotive technology which boasts special interior and exterior features at the same time. The new M-Class encompasses leading standards of safety and security which has always been a renowned trait by this leading automobile brand.
The modifications applied on the exterior with the AMG Sports package adds a sporty appearance with an aggressive modern design formed with a detailed AMG front apron and muscular side panels lined with chrome. In addition, the LED daytime running lamps which offer enhanced visibility with their adaptive high beam assist automatically adapt the range of headlights to road and traffic conditions and surround the muscular front cover which is set with an ‘Active Bonnet’ popping up and increasing the clearance between the bonnet and engine in case of accidents.
On top of all the distinct exterior features, the Mercedes-Benz engineers ensured that drivers of the M-Class are in upmost comfort and enabled with unparalleled driving experiences due to its flexibility, lightness, ease and responsiveness no matter what the driving conditions are. This new SUV’s carbon emissions have also been decreased by 25%, a breaking record for a car in this category.
With a newer and more powerful V6 CGI engine with 306 horsepower, the M-Class is still a leader in terms of reduced fuel consumption and emissions in its field, setting a new benchmark in the SUV segment, as it also leads the way with its further improved 7G-Tronic Plus automatic transmission.
The 4Matic permanent all-wheel drive, led by large 5-spoke AMG light-alloy wheels, assist in making any driving condition, no matter how bad the roads might seem, an easy expedition for its driver. For even further flexibility while driving, the M-Class has been fit with Active Parking Assist including Parktronic which easily supports the driver into steering the vehicle into parking spaces.
The evolution of the M-Class goes on further to include an automatic panoramic sliding sunroof and heat-insulating dark-tinted glass in addition to an interior space that promotes the passengers’ wellbeing on every trip through a wide range of state-of-the-art features. Fine leather seats enable comfortable seating even throughout long trips. Moreover, the modified exterior design has provided the M-Class with additional interior space, making the boot capacity the largest in its segment, impressing adventurers and those seeking long sports expeditions in need of ample luggage space.
Commenting on the occasion, Mr. Cesar Aoun, General Manager of Mercedes-Benz at T. Gargour & Fils, said, “The powerful, sporty look, strong engine, exceptional performance, top quality materials used in its production, in addition to a series of other features makes the M-Class the number one choice of SUVs for those looking for the perfect vehicle that will meet their passion of driving at all times of the day, whether on the coast or in the mountains, valley or off-road.”
Dr. Thomas Weber, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG for Group Research and Mercedes-Benz Cars Development says, “The M-Class embodies all the automotive experience that we have accumulated over 125 years and thus represents – in short – a quantum leap in terms of efficiency, safety, agility, driving enjoyment and design!”
“Our aim with the M-Class has always been to combine the comfort and luxury of a saloon with the off-road capability and emotive appeal of an SUV.”
