    Nice car as a starting segment of Mercedes it owns brand value. !

    Mercedes is a brand that provides best class service. It is best car for 2 people and of course its a 2 wheel drive. The rear seats foot space is less. Car skids in turns Best thing is the speed gear box and speed should be from 0 to 100 km/l in couple of minutes. Car is good for 2 seaters and dashboard and instrumental cluster is best in class as compared to toyota. I had a great experience riding a car a month ago. The petrol variant is 1.3 liter and great performance. It's display is great and alexa works on it.
