My thoughts on all things motoring, press releases, reviews & techie stuff, from around the world.
Please note that the pictures of vehicles within this blog are used as examples of the specific press releases, on occasions, due to the lack of available official pictures, examples are re-produced.
ANY AND ALL PROFANITIES WILL BE REMOVED AND THE PERSON/S RESPONSIBLE WILL BE BANNED, NO EXCEPTIONS.
I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

HONEST JOHN AWARDS - Mercedes takes the Most Popular Compact Premium Car award for the GLC.
Mercedes-Benz GLC wins ‘Most Popular Compact Premium Car’
The annual Awards are based on the level of interest reviews received on the Honest John website
The Mercedes-Benz GLC was named ‘Most Popular Compact Premium Car’ at the Honest John Awards, which were held in London last night.
Winners are selected according to the interest and page views they generate through the Honest John website. The site, created 15 years ago to help consumers with advice on buying, selling and running cars, receives two million visits every month.
Presenting the award, Dan Harrison, editor of honestjohn.co.uk, commented: “Mercedes-Benz may have been a latecomer to the crossover party, but the GLC proves that arriving fashionably late can have its benefits.
As an even more practical and family-friendly alternative to the C-Class, the stylish GLC has gained plenty of admirers - winning the Most Popular Compact Premium Car award in the process. Even more impressive is the fact the GLC review went live mid-way through 2015, yet still managed to outperform other premium models in a shorter space of time.”
The GLC is on sale now, with prices starting from £34,950 for the GLC 220 d SE. The recently announced Mercedes-AMG GLC 43, which features a 3.0-litre V6 biturbo petrol engine, joins the line-up at the end of 2016.
