The c –class of the Mercedes Bens gets better fuel economy, costs the same as a fully loaded Chrysler, and has more standard safety than cars that cost much more than this vehicle.

A Reversing camera is standard, it will break automatically in an emergency, getting 15 percent discount on most insurers, and it has wipe down vinyl seats that are family friendly.

The world had turned from the time when only the rich people could afford to drive this type of vehicle. But these days just about anyone can drive such a luxurious vehicle.

The Mercedes Benz C180 comes with automatic safety breaking to electric window switches. It is a vehicle that is loaded with allot of safety stuff but also benefits from a new generation of engines with stop-start and turbocharging.

With the C180 performance is almost a match for the C250 yet its claimed fuel economy is 6.0L/100km. it has old school rear wheel drive for refinement and driving enjoyment, with a seven speed automatic gear box.

The new body is bigger but nearly half of the panels are made from aluminium, which cuts weight by up to 40kg.

The body follows Ben’z latest styling, which is more aggressive than the outgoing car, but the interior has been modernised without losing its effectiveness. There is a large touch screen 7 inches. Include a choice of interior lighting colours and an agility switch for the engine/transmission/steering computer. Smart work inside the bigger body enhances usable space, particularly in the back where the outgoing C-Class was upright and cramped. The boot is also much bigger.

Regarding Safety the C-Class basics are right, from the body structure to nine airbags. The extra gear – including automatic emergency braking that flashes you a noisy warning.

The car copes easily over bumps and potholes. There is nothing nasty in the handling of the vehicle, which is generally neutral in all corners, and it cruises quietly and effortlessly.

It used to be that people rented a car when they went away on holiday and they needed to get around. But now, people rent cars for all kinds of reasons. Someone does not need to be on holiday or a business to trip to rent a car. Some people get one for a special occasion. Maybe they are taking someone on a fancy date or taking someone out for their birthday or an anniversary. Luxury cars can be rented although they usually cost more than renting a standard size vehicle.

For business owners, renting a car can be a nice touch when taking an important client out to dinner or picking up someone from the airport. It shows that you are going the extra mile to help the client feel comfortable and to show that your business is professional and classy.

If you are taking a road trip out of town but you don't want to drive your petrol guzzling vehicle such as a truck or SUV, you may want to rent a compact car to save a few bucks. Petrol can really add up when you are driving a car that does not get very good petrol mileage. Especially if you are going on a long road trip. You can save a lot of money by renting something with a smaller, more efficient engine. Maybe you own a car that is not very reliable or has been in and out of the shop many times. You wouldn't want that car to break down while you are on a road trip or taking the family on a holiday away. Being stranded in an unfamiliar place can be a very frustrating and stressful experience. Not to mention it will put a big wrench in your plans for the family holiday you all have been so excited for. Instead, renting a car will give you peace of mind that you will safely arrive at your destination. Plus, depending on what type of car you rent, you may have more room and it may be a more comfortable ride. People also rent cars to save on the wear and tear that traveling long distances puts on their own personal cars.

If you need to move some furniture but don't own a truck, you may need to rent one. It may actually be cheaper than hiring a delivery company to help move your furniture. Especially if you can get the job done in one afternoon. There are some rental companies that can charge by the hour or let you rent the car for a half day.

Most cities have several car rental companies with competitive prices. You can do a search online to compare rates and book a car right over the internet. Some companies will actually come to your location and pick you up. This works out well if your car is in the shop and you have no way to get to the rental office.

Even though there are many reasons to rent a car these days, you really don't need a good reason. You can rent a car just for fun and hit the road with friends or family. It's always fun to drive something different.
