Here is a quick demo of the Garmin Map Pilot for the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, CLA-Class and CLS-Class. This is a very well integrated system and I highly recommend it.
For 2016, Selenite Grey has been made available on many models and Palladium Silver has been discontinued. I was trying to describe this color as the New Palladium but the more I looked at it, the less Palladium it looked. So, I pulled together all of my greys and here is what I came up with!
From Left to Right: Palladium Silver S550, Selenite Grey E350, Mountain Grey CLA250 and Steel Grey C300
I think Palladium is lighter and has more gold than Selenite.
If you compare the Steel C300 (closest) to the Mountain Grey CLA250, the Steel looks very blue and the Mountain looks a touch brown.
I think this is the best light/angle I captured to show the different colors.
I hope there is a color or paint expert out there that can tell me how to explain these! Until then it will remain light grey, medium grey and dark grey.
I love this commercial! Watching all of the vehicles drive by is fascinating!
The Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class has only been available for a few months and I am just starting to get feedback from my early adopters. It seems to be a hit! This client did his research early and asked for a couple of additions before he picked it up.
The Cargo Tray is an excellent addition to the vehicle. The 2″ tall lip means that anything you spill will be contained. The first time they handed it to me at the parts desk I was sure it was the wrong one. It was huge! The GLA250 really does have an impressive amount of storage.
The Coat Hangar works for most Mercedes-Benz models (must have headrest stalks) and is a popular option with doctors. I guess balling up your lab coat in the back seat is a no-no.
Also, I just saw an announcement that the all-weather liners for the GLA-Class, CLA-Class and B-Class are now available.
Accessorize your Mercedes! You’ll love it even more!
The red accents look amazing on this black car and I didn’t even notice the lower decal until I was taking these pictures!
The interior is full of red accents and the very sporty dinamica interior.
The red grille surround is my favorite feature.
This one is already sold but you can order your own now!
The 2015 CLS400 and CLS550 are scheduled to arrive this month. The CLS400 is a new 6-cylinder addition to the line-up and, based on the early success of the SL400, I bet we sell lots of them!
The 2015 CLA-Class will arrive in December with a host of upgrades! The 2014 sold like hotcakes all year and I think these improvements will certainly bring in even more excited new owners.
