    Re: Urus (SUV)

    Gnil:

    The car does not look too agressive . People will get used to it . It has actually a ' sympathetic ' look . I am pretty sure it will be well received .  Don't know about Germany , but here the X6 sold very well ( now it is more of  a '' ex yougoslaves 's ''  people' s car , if you see what I mean . ( no offense )  GLE is also very well established and seen . 

    The regular German population seems to have a deep antipathy for larger SUVs, especially when they look "sporty", like the X6 or GLE Coupe. They are successful here, not only with the Balkan crowd Smiley (sorry, no offense meant but it seems to be similar in Switzerland) but if you leave such a car in a parking lot over night, you can be sure to have a scratch on it next morning. Smiley

    Not sure how the Urus will be received but lately, I haven't seen many Bentayga over here and with the new Cayenne approaching...

    I hardly ever see a Bentayga around here , maybe twice I saw one , that's it . It does not seem to fit in . . It is way too elegant and smart looking for a SUV . Fits Dubai , Miami, Hollywood or city center London  , but not here . It does not make much sense . 

    We will see with the Urus , but I bet it will do well in lots of parts of the world where people will want something different .

    The Bentley is very popular in Chicago especially amongst students from China.  Would imagine the Urus to do as well, if not better.

    Many of the Chinese college students purchase expensive vehicles while attending college in the States.  They then ship the vehicle back and sell it, usually at a significant profit, to help fund their education.  


    Re: Urus (SUV)

    Most don't ship them back to sell. You can't really import used cars into China. The Chinese kids with expensive cars in the US are super wealthy to begin with.

    Of course, all-impotent one, you have an argument for everything.  


    Re: Urus (SUV)

    Eh, I lived there for like a decade and know many of those people and investigated bringing cars myself. Go around all the exotic car dealers in Shanghai and try and find used US cars...

    The main issue with the Bentayga is its pricing ( and its looks Smiley). It will be very interesting to see where the Urus is pitched.


    Re: Urus (SUV)

    speaking of Bentayga look, enlightened what an ugly thing but I quite like the Urus from the concept car.

    Looks like the final product will be more Audi like. let's see how they price it and what will be offered with it.

    I am pretty sure I want one but I cannot afford one. Unlike Audi, Lamborghini lease offers aren't the best in Germany. 🙁

    Getting my GLC63S next spring, not as beautiful as the Lambo but performance won't be much worse. 😉

    Re: Urus (SUV)

    GLC63S is for sure a very good bargain for the money compared to what competition offer in term of performance and chassis kiss.

    this AMG will sure be under the radar for the most but surely a good car to get for the connoisseur. the edition 1 look in mat grey looks nice apart from the yellow sticker enlightened...but I guess can be easily removed.

    Not sure about speccing the buckets  in such type of car as it is surely not a racer, are they comfy and completely adjustable?

    It appears so but let's hope that Mercedes doesn't change anything to lower performance in any way. I am a bit worried about the second delay (car was supposed to be available last summer, then it was delayed to December and now it is spring 2018). Not sure if it is related to the current emissions scandal in Germany but many delays (Audi for example) were related to this, so I am a bit worried.

    this AMG will sure be under the radar for the most but surely a good car to get for the connoisseur. the edition 1 look in mat grey looks nice apart from the yellow sticker enlightened...but I guess can be easily removed.

    My car comes without that yellow sticker... Smiley and yes, flying under the radar is very important for me, especially since I am going to park this car in front of my business.

    I was surprised how comfy they are and yes, they are fully adjustable. The GLC will be my daily driver, this is why I chose these seats. My wife wanted them as well for her C63 S AMG but she also wanted that "neck scarf" (heating system) and it is only available with the standard seats, so she couldn't take the buckets.

    I would love to take a SUV like the Urus but I'm afraid it would be way too flashy and probably also way too expensive for a family truck.

    Re: Urus (SUV)

    I will have a look at this GLC when they will arrive in UAE... especially fully optioned at 120k$ indecision

    Don't think they will try to reduce performances but just making sure everything is OK. putting 500+ hp on the road requires some checks especially in this segment where the best competitor is 100hp less...and don't forget the facelift is at the corner. you can't just release the best in the segment already outdated...

    I don't see the noise to be an issue, AMG knows how to make screaming engines, I even saw sport exhaust system optional so they will definitely make it!

    flying under the radar with a mat paint is bit ambitious smiley with massive golden brakes but I agree it gives a better image than cayenne, let's put apart G class or the existing and coming exotics angry

    those buckets have cooling and heating function as well or not?

    the URUS is itching me badly, I just hope it will be too expansive, that will close out the issue immediately.

    Most people here cannot tell the difference between a regular GLC and the AMG version, no matter how the brakes look or the paint of the car, so I think I'm good. Smiley

    No, the buckets offer heating only, no cooling, sorry.

    There are tons of these kids in Vancouver.

    I actually feel sorry for these kids, as I don't think their parents' money will last forever.

    Also, most of these kids have nothing to look forward to career wise.  They will not work low paying jobs, but high paying jobs will not hire them (other than their own parents or if they have connections).

    To me, they are basically wasting their lives.

    Or one could look it another way : at least , for a few years in their lives, they will have all the toys and pleasure they could dream on .     Just hope they can live with what may come after ....

    I find it pretty irresponsible from the parents, but then also, my kids have so much compared to others , what would they say about me ?

    Don't judge them too harsh, I know one of these billionaire kids and he really is a very nice guy and turned out to be a fine young man. He drove a Ferrari to school first but then switched to a C63 because one of his professors mentioned to him that his car costs more than what he makes in a year. Smiley Wasn't Canada though but the US (Texas).
