Impressions from the GIMS

Post by Platinnum » Wed Mar 07, 2018 10:12 am

Hi all

I am in Geneva at the international car show. Below some impressions......
Sweet cars. Looking at the new C43 AMG this could be my next car.

I hope you enjoy!

Cheers

I honestly have to say, in person the new A class looks very nice!! Quality of the interior is better than what we have in ours!Image all in all I think the new A45/A50 could be a sweet machine!

The new C43 looks superb, still not liking the rear or dash of the new A :(

I've got agree regarding the C43 Coupe does look the business although the A looks okay until you actually see the revised version of the AMG it's difficult to surmise especially with little information, not overly fussed with the dashboard screens I'm afraid. 8-)

I found this in the 'items for sale' section of the forum so I've moved it here :)

The dashboard/interior of the new A class wouldn't look out of place with a Citroen badge on it.
That's what it looks like to me - a cheap city car dashboard with cheap electronic screens instead of properly engineered mechanical switches and dials.

Just looks a cop out.

If the same photo was used and announced as "The new Toyota iQ interior" would anyone be particularly surprised?
I think not.

the launch price is quoted as being a bit higher that the competitors, so it better be good.

A200 looks great, saw a few posted about the new A35 but the colour they have launched it in is terrible, possibly nicer looking in person! ;)

Have to admit I'm looking forward to December and retirement to allow me time to look at some of these new models, they've just released the new A series into Bahrain although it's unlikely I'll have the time to go to the showroom and look at them. One aspect I did notice when I happened on to the configurator it automatically changed to the Bahrain site and the costs for the usual add-ons is pretty horrendous to say the least so much so it's unlikely I'll ever complain when back home! 8-)
