How Mercedes can improve their range / what I expect
These are my thoughts on how Mercedes can improve their range and what I expect from their upcoming models.
These are based on the criticism from reviews and from owners that I've read. I've only listed the improvements needed to be made based on what the majority of people criticized.
Vehicles that are soon to be improved or replaced are not included
A/CLA - Much improved ride quality, improved refinement, and faster automatic gearbox.
CLS - Remove the foot operated parking brake, move the shift to the console, and improve the refinement and quality slightly.
SLK - Improved chassis and ride quality.
SL - Slightly improved handling.
M - Improved chassis, body control, and a facelift to keep up with the designs of newer rivals.
The 2015 C-Class should be a lot better to drive than the old one, no foot operated parking brake, and quality/refinement should be top notch.
The GLA should have a much better suspension than it's FWD based brethren, and it's claimed MPG figures should be correct or at least close.
What are your thoughts? Do you think a model or more from here is absolutely fine?
