2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE 350d road test review (India)

The three-pointed star is the mark of a Mercedes-Benz but that doesn’t seem to be enough for the boffins in Stuttgart. They want people to identify their new generation cars from the older ones and also want the model names to be self-explanatory. After all, they are shedding the image of being elegant, understated grandpa cars and are building snazzy cars that can be driven into a hip hop video straight from the showroom.
So what is the new nomenclature? If you see a single alphabet like a C, E, S etc, it defines the blood line. If you see three alphabets instead, then they define the vehicle type and its …

Buying from a used car broker: the pros and cons

Used car brokers can be an excellent way of saving money on a used car, but there are pitfalls, too. Here’s our advice.

Used car brokers connect people who are looking for inexpensive used cars to the manufacturers and car dealers who are selling cars on the used market.

There are some names that you’ll be familiar with, such as Cargiant and Motorpoint – both of which have a huge number of cars in stock themselves, but also connect you to used car dealers. This means you can use their search systems and let them do all the hard work.

It’s often tempting just to go to your local dealer and check out their stock. It’s often a good idea, though, to cast your net a bit wider, as there’ll often be a dealer that offers cars at significantly lower prices than the one that’s closest to you.

Here, we’ve listed the pros and cons of going through a used car broker. It won’t always be the best option for you, but you can sometimes get a great deal this way.

New, used, or nearly-new – what should I buy? Read more: New, used, or nearly-new – what should I buy?

Carbuyer outlines the pros and cons of new, second-hand and nearly-new cars

It’s the age-old question when you’re choosing your next car: do you go new, nearly new or used? It’s a tricky one: there are plenty of plusses and minuses for all three and a number of factors that need considering. Therefore, we’ve put together a handy guide to help you choose which is best for you.

It’s fairly common to head to your local dealer certain that you’re after a new car, but then discovering that in fact a used or nearly new car would actually suit you better. The reverse can also be true, with many people set on a used car finding that a deal on a new car is better value.

It’s very rare for someone to walk in to a car dealership, pay however many thousands of pounds for a new car and then drive it away. Most new cars are bought or leased on finance deals that involve spreading the cost over monthly payments, This makes more sense for a lot of people than buying a relatively inexpensive used car, especially if there’s no deposit required. Others may not be able to afford a new car regardless of how the cost is spread out or simply dislike being held in an agreement for a number of years.

How to choose your new car options

Negotiating the options list is always tricky – Carbuyer shows you how

Once you’ve decided which car you’re going to buy, there are still loads of choices to make. One of the most taxing and perplexing is deciding which options you’re going to go for.

Not only can these affect the ownership experience – for better or worse – but they can also seriously impact a car’s resale value. Read on for our advice on how to choose the best options.

What are optional extras?

As the name suggests, optional extras are features on a car that aren’t included in its original list price and for which you must pay extra. These can be anything from technical features, to different designs of alloy wheels or special paint colours.

Each model of car on sale comes with a different set of options to choose from and the same type of option (e.g. sat nav) can be priced differently depending on which car you go for.

The majority of new car model ranges are divided into different ‘trim levels’. These are priced differently and come with increasingly more standard equipment as you move up the range. Some engine and gearbox combinations may only be available with certain trim levels, too.

2015 Frankfurt Motor Show: Jaguar F-Pace SUV unveiled

The CX-17 Crossover Concept from Jaguar was unveiled two years ago on this very day and it took the world by storm, and not just because it was the company’s first attempt at a body type which its sister company Land Rover has mastered over decades. Now the production ready version of the crossover concept has been unveiled right before the Frankfurt Motorshow and in flesh it seems the wait has been worth it. You can at once tell that its got the soul of the F-Type sports car and hence the name ‘F-Pace’. But really, a Jaguar crossover? Well, why not? Porsche did it and succeeded, Bentley is about to do it in a few hours, and even Rolls Royce will do it in the near future. The crossover and SUV body forms are but an eventuality for luxury car makers. Having gotten that out of the way, here’s what the F-Pace is like in flesh.
