Test drive Trendymen: Mercedes-Benz GLA

Let’s start with the fact that despite the letter G in the title, GLA in practice is difficult to refer to crossovers. Nicely, this is supposed to be A-Classe, but the dictates of the market, and without a formal compact crossover today any self-respecting brand just does.
In a sense, this is the label of the crossover can be a source of inflated expectations. After all, what we usually expect from such a car? The height, the view from the top down and high ground clearance. Here the templates are broken from the very first seconds of acquaintance. Here we were met by a small landing, and the line of Windows is not above passing sedans and hatchbacks. Despite the 17 inch ground clearance, this option has GLA less than any of its competitors — the usual set of qualities does not stack well. And that is why you should not try to measure GLA usual criteria crossover.
And one has only to distract from the Protocol, as everything falls into place. Four-wheel drive, increased ground clearance, relatively capacious trunk and amazing everyday practicality. In some sense, GLA closer in spirit to the series Allroad Quatro, and label crossover here — a tribute to fashion.
Mercedes was very soft, foldable and proportional way. Additional 20 inches of length compared to A-Classe allowed to make the silhouette more balanced and not breaking the line of the rear rack and trunk lid. Designers also do not regret chromium with additional style packages, the car looks brilliant as a designer accessory. It is important not to miss the color of our test car flow neighbours were sincerely mistaken for a female, but a dark tone of the body needs to fix this embarrassment. Our clear choice — GLA in black.

Despite its compact size, the GLA is not asking for discounts for your size. The salon is very carefully tailored. There is no gloss Mercedes flagship models, but not visible saving on the little things that often plagues competitors. The arrangement of the elements and controls calibrated and requires no adjustment. However, the Central multimedia screen it’s tempting to point a finger. But nothing will happen — it can only be operated washers joystick Comand.
At our disposal was the car in the version of the GLA250, all-wheel drive version with increased ground clearance. Despite four-wheel drive, a stock 2 litre turbo petrol engine 211 HP enough to stock — car shows adult dynamics, covering the first hundred in 7.1 seconds. Suspension for Russia in Mercedes amplify. On the one hand, it is very practical from the point of view of operation in the conditions of local roads, but on the other, makes a move of several absorbers sandwiched. It makes GLA literally bounce on the road bumps, especially at speeds closer to 100 km/h.

But on these cars rarely go to forced marches. But in the conditions of city streets GLA revealed a small wheelbase and precise wheel maneuverability make it outstanding. In conjunction with a whole bunch of driver assistance systems, including the monitoring of dead zones, and the control strip, and rear view camera, daily performance of this car can compete with anyone, and GLA can handle it. And here it is not required to be labeled as a crossover.

5 everyday things that can save your life

Recently on the territory of the entire planet is gaining momentum a new trend: preparing for survival. The so-called “preppers” spend a huge amount of money, time and other resources to provide themselves and their families in case what. Reached an extreme stage of paranoia people supply the backyards of their homes underground shelters. Machine equipped with a heavy scottbradley, strengthen window grilles, wheels — chains. And all anything, if the security of your own home does not remain for such people the tenth case. But if you believe in common sense, that is a house (or apartment) you have to protect from normal misfortunes, which is not part of the zombie Apocalypse. We have collected a small list of basic items that must be in every home. Each of them is able to save not only your property but also your life.


  • Radio

    Natural disaster, war and other troubles certainly will bypass the usual methods of communication. Buy and fit batteries conventional radio — from here will receive information about which side to lie down with your legs right now, and which way to crawl slowly, covered with a sheet.


  • Flashlight

    Blackout is a phenomenon in our country is quite common. If you don’t need to go, you can, of course, and with a candle in the kitchen to sit. But all sorts of global problems (knock on table) is usually accompanied by the same off the light. Buy a good flashlight, insert the batteries and keep it in an accessible place. In peak situations is useful.


  • Ect

    Keep the house bat — bad taste, remember. Among other things, it still hit should be able to. Rushed the robbers to armed confrontation ready probably better than you. So will be able in no time to take away this useless stick. And to make it useful, but not for you. Much better would be to buy a Taser. Any documents on its storage is not required, and in case of attack, he could save not only your property but also your life. Better yet — buy a Taser in a closed room with the range of the shot enough with his head.


  • Smoke detector

    A smoke detector is installed in each new apartment, by default. Then, a thousand little intelligible reasons it remove the residents themselves. Either someone is Smoking, and tired of the constant alarm. Either kitchen magician is tired of the same beeper as nightly happy sacred action with seafood for the whole family. So, stop Smoking (at all, in principle, and the apartment in particular), and the kitchen magician buy your headphones. Unscrew the smoke detector is very stupid and dangerous. Who will warn you about the commencement of the fire?


  • Plug for sockets

    This thing just needed to families with a small child growing up. It is unclear why children are drawn to shove a piece of wire in the socket, and not a finger in the honey jar, but the fact remains. A set of rubber plugs on the apartment — not complex and not expensive acquisition. Do it!

Hot electric Tesla hi from Aston Martin

Connect even the most isolated producers to imposed Tesla throughout the automotive market electrodance is only a matter of time that once again proved the company Aston Martin. Now the British are actively drawing on existing technology “chetyrehdverki” Rapide, electrical variation which you have to shoot as early as 2017.
In this case the manufacturer has no intention to change the principles and major parties prefer the limited edition number of electric cars in a couple of hundred copies a year. This maneuver will allow Aston Martin to somehow justify the price tag 200-250 thousand dollars for a car that, as we remember, 50-100 thousand more than the “charged” version of the Tesla.
Another task of the 800-strong electric vehicle (recall, Tesla Model S P85D two electric motors give only 700 HP), we could reduce the average emissions of the line Aston Martin, where you can enjoy powerful 12-cylinder engines. Концепт Aston Martin DBX
Promised the head of Aston Martin, Andy Palmer to add to the lineup, and the analogue of the Tesla Model X, however, the DBX crossover will be just before the end of this decade and even have time to go through a hybrid stage.
Despite the fact that the electric competitors have about the same range of just over 300 miles on a single charge, it is not clear that the British company is planning to oppose Tesla in ensuring their cars “filling” stations. The latter of these already hundreds more across America, and Rapide for a quarter of a million dollars, it seems, will have to move from outlet to outlet. Read More →
