Mercedes GLC 300
Nothing better than driving this beautiful Mercedes GLC 300 around a very rare rainy day in Dubai.
If you haven't already got to drive the new GLA or GLC Mercedes, then get out there and schedule a test drive with the nearest garage because it is not something you will regret.
With thanks to the team at Mojo Pr and Sixt Rent-a-car I get to experience some of the latest Mercedes and it has developed such a love towards the brand as they are a thing of beauty to drive.
The GLC 300 has 241 hp 2.0-liter four that pairs with a paddle shifted nine-speed automatic and rear drive; all wheel drive is optional. The seats are extremely comfortable, and very quiet to drive making the experience very enjoyable.

GLA 45 AMG
With huge gratitude and thanks to Mojo PR and SIXT Rent-a-car here in Dubai, I was privileged enough to drive around this beauty of a car around UAE's most sought after city.
This Mercedes GLA 45 AMG was an absolute joy to drive, with its intense bucket seats, red seat belts, firm steering wheel and an engine that will wake up your neighbours, this car right out of the gates made me feel like I was a professional driver!
The GLA shares its front-drive bones with the CLA sedan. The GLA is more all-wheel-drive hot hatch and is a kinder, gentler AMG than what we're accustomed to.
The GLA has the same 2.0 litre turbo four as the CLA45 which is a monster that has 355 horsepower and 332 pound feet of torque, and takes 4.8 seconds from 0-60mph. That's quick!!!!
The best review i've read about the this GLA is that it is not a rally car wearing a tie and jacket, it is a deliriously fast pocket rocket Mercedes wearing a leather jacket and chewing tobacco in the back of class, ha....and I completely agree with it.
This car was an instant head turner and within 10 minutes of driving it around I instantly saw people taking out their phones and taking pictures as I drove by.
The sleek, elegant yet sporty appearance of the car matches the sheer sound and velocity of the engine, and with this colour way of pearl white mixed with carbon, black and fierce red it is a car lovers dream!
The GLA's style extends into the inside of the car. From a design perspective, everything inside looks immaculate, especially the toggle switch gear shifter, the suede wrapped steering wheel and the cross shaped air vents.

Mercedes S63 AMG
With huge thanks to Mojo Public Relations and SIXT rent a cars, I got to have the best 4 days driving around Dubai in the all new Mercedes AMG S63.
This 5.5L AMG Biturbo V-8 engine sounds and drives amazing and can do 0-60 in 3.9 seconds, with a top speed of 186mph.
The car runs so smoothly and has been designed and engineered to enhance maximum comfort.
There are so many features to this car and I'm sure I didn't even get to experience them all.
One of my favourite features is the chair moving and adapting to the corners to keep you from shifting around, making you feel very safe, with a technology called MAGIC BODY CONTROL which lets the car lean into corners like a motorcycle.
The interior is beautiful and the large screen and dials make everything much easier to navigate.
With regards to the exterior the car is very aerodynamic and sleek, and is not exactly petite standing at over 5 feet long and two wide with a long bonnet and high waist making the assisting parking feature extremely helpful.

As you can see the car I got to drive this week is an absolute BEAST and so fun to drive.
The all new 2015 Chevrolet Silverado is a thing of pure beauty, not only does it pack a punch but it is also amazingly comfortable. The sheer size of the vehicle makes you feel like you own any road you join and also makes you feel like you receive some sort of respect from others drivers.
It's definitely the biggest vehicle I have driven and also probably one of the most comfortable. This is only the second Chevrolet that I have driven, the first being a Chevrolet Blazer which I owned in America in 2006, this Silverado has just rejuvenated my love for the brand.
Below is the vehicle in more detail from Chevrolet for all your motor heats out there:
Chevrolet Silverado Light Duty: New for 2015
- Eight-speed automatic transmission for the 6.2L V-8 (late availability)
- New exterior color: Deep Ocean Blue Metallic
2015 Silverado Light Duty: Stronger, Smarter and More Capable
- Updated trailer ratings showcase Silverado’s strength and capability
- Available 6.2L EcoTec3 V-8 leads segment in horsepower and torque
- A new eight-speed automatic transmission will be standard on models equipped with the 6.2L EcoTec3 V-8
The 2015 Silverado Light Duty is engineered to be stronger, smarter and more capable than ever before.
It features a trio of new EcoTec3 engines – a V-6 and two V-8s, a quieter and more comfortable cab, a refined interior with connectivity, improved ride and handling and ingenious solutions for managing cargo in the bed.
The 2015 Silverado Light Duty will continue to offer trailer weight ratings up to 5,443 kg as it transitions to new ratings based on US’s SAE J2807 Recommended Practices.
The 2015 Silverado Light Duty pickups are available in seven distinct trim levels, from a Work Truck (WT) to the premium level, High Country.
Interiors tailored to truck customers
The interiors of the 2015 Silverado LD reflect the same focus on form and function. The upright instrument panel, six-gauge instrument cluster and multiple storage options are tailored specifically to the needs of truck customers. Controls are functional, logically placed and easy to operate with work gloves on. Rear doors on crew cabs are larger, for easier entry and exit, and rear doors on double cab models are now hinged at the front for easier access, especially in tight spots.
For those of you that prefer to drive big cars as perhaps it makes you feel safer on the roads, this is definitely the one for you. There will not be many other vehicles you face that will be sat higher than you, and plus with the amazing space and easiness to drive you will not want to drive another model.
Also, Chevrolet's latest offer, which runs until October 31, gives UAE customers looking to buy a 2015 Silverado the opportunity to get a complimentary trim upgrade- which means extra safety, comfort and entertainment features.
Last week I got to spend 4 great days test driving this beautiful infiniti Q70 S and let me tell you it was very enjoyable.
This car is so smooth to drive and extremely comfortable. I got to spin it round from errand to errand here in Dubai.
The inside system is easy to navigate around and took a mere 5 mins to figure everything out. With it's 3.7L V6 engine it is also as fast as it is comfortable.
Here is some more info from Infinti about the Q70 S:
'The Q70 is launched with the Excellence and Luxury Grade that features the Premium body design. As an added alternative, the Sport Grade is available with the Sport body design. The Sport body design features a specially designed front bumper that gives an even lower and wider stance.
The trapezoidal bumper intake and apron shape inspired from race car splitters give an athletic presence and bold impression.
Black painted turn & fog finishers as well as the rear bumper finished in high-gloss black paint reinforce the sporty appearance.
The instrument panel consists of Fine Vision gauges and a 7-inch full color vehicle information display, while the driver and front passenger’s seats are leather and feature 10-way power adjustment, including 2-way lumbar support.
The cost of this Model from Infiniti ranges from 169-175k AED
