With the Mercedes-Benz E200, you can't really go wrong with it

With the Mercedes-Benz E200, you can't really go wrong with it



Another day, another review with sgCarMart! And today, we have the 2020 Mercedes-Benz E200 Exclusive!

One of the best sellers in the Mercedes-Benz range since its inception, the E-Class just keeps getting better and better, and being here in E200 guise, it still gives you the luxury and comfort you expect of a Mercedes-Benz.


If you thought the front fascia of the new E200 looked good, check out the side three-quarter angle. I daresay it blends the sleek and smooth lines with just the right amount of aggression into one great package.


With 194bhp and 320Nm of torque from an updated 2.0-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder mated with a nine-speed automatic transmission, I doubt many drivers are going to find a lack of power with the E200, especially when you're trying to overtake that inconsiderate driver hogging the first lane on the AYE. 0 - 100km/h comes and goes in 7.5 seconds. You're not going to break any speed records, but that is still brisk enough for Singapore traffic.


The sight of this 3-point star bonnet emblem never really gets old, does it. I daresay it is that one factor that really adds a debonair touch to any Mercedes-Benz that has it.


Like all newer Mercedes-Benz models, the E200 comes with two large screens at the front, one to display the car's information while the other is for infotainment purposes. I love how Mercedes-Benz is the only manufacturer who does this and it really gives a feel of airiness to the cabin.


And not to mention, the lovely contours and leather patterns on the seats.


And if you still aren't convinced how much legroom the E200 has in the back, here's some proof. The seat has been adjusted to Jon's position, and Jon is about 1.8m tall. Just look at the amount of space Julian has to lounge in the back seat, enough to seat cross legged even! Oh, and let's not forget the in-built sunshades on the windows. Those will be useful in our sunny weather.


Electric tailgate as standard, wouldn't expect anything less on a Mercedes-Benz. 540 litres of boot space, more than able to fit the auntie trolley length wise.


Cavernous, almost. 10 more litres than the BMW 5 Series, if you're wondering.


There is even a pullout tray table that you can use to store documents, have a quick lunch, picnic, whatever you can think of to utilise that tray table. It can handle up to 10kg maximum load, so don't put anything that's too heavy on it.

    ComfortDelGro taxi driver whips out metal pipe during road rage

    We thought ComfortDelGro taxi drivers should be the most well-mannered taxi drivers on our island based on service standards, but this driver's actions made us stop and think. What made us think otherwise? This video of a very pissed-off taxi driver confronting the cam car driver for sounding his horn at him. Rewinding back to how it all started, the cam car can be heard sounding his horn at the taxi driver after a passenger gets off at a sheltered crossing. The taxi driver then proceeds to move off slowly, triggering the cam car driver to toot his horn in impatience.  The taxi driver does not react to the first horn which leads to a few more horns from cam car. This is where it gets interesting. The taxi driver's pissed off at this point, he takes his time to slowly drive into the carpark and stops on the second level to confront the cam car driver. We don't really know what happened after the taxi driver got off his taxi since most of the clip is on mute. Thankfully, no one got hurt in this road rage incident.  Could this have been avoided if the cam car just overtook the taxi at the shelter? Let us know! Not an isolated incident That is not the end of the story though. Someone else has also been a victim to the same taxi driver's road rage.    



    Smol food delivery cyclist with big bus problems

    Do you know the story of David and Goliath? Well, if you don't, long story short, it's a story of a small boy who defeats a giant man with nothing but a slingshot. We have a Singapore version. Let's take a look at a short clip of a food delivery cyclist engaging in an argument with a bus driver driving a SBS bus. Unlike the David and Goliath story, no slingshots were used but, in true blue Singaporean fashion, lots of pointing and cursing ensued. This incident makes me think of the upcoming movie of Kong vs Godzilla (not a sponsored post. I really want to watch it though). The only difference? Both Kong and Godzilla are comparatively equal in size. This food delivery guy's bicycle pales in comparison to the bus to be frank. My take on this incident With all these dash cam cameras on the road these days, you're bound to end up online if you engage in such negative behaviour. So, what's the point in getting so worked up for? Lucky for the cyclist that this altercation was just a verbal one. Imagine if it had become physical. The internet would 'pang no chance' with this guy. Unfortunately, we cannot hear what the food delivery guy says to the bus driver. You can make your own assumptions but, from the body language, I'm quite sure it's a colourful conversation. "Thank you for giving way" 🤣 - They should put this sign next to the bus driver  



    Man causes a long queue by pumping petrol 'machiam' like he in JB

    Remember the good old days where you could bring your whole family across the border and enjoy everything our neighbouring country has to offer? With the affordable prices of petrol, topping up your gas tank before coming back to Singapore was something no one would skip. But there are some people who go a little too far to save a couple of dollars. Like this! 😂 Which brings us to video below. I'm scratching my head as to why this driver is trying to ensure that every cubic meter of fuel is stored inside his car. Given that our petrol prices in Singapore are exorbitant now.  A little bit of Myth busting Myth - Do I really save money if I am able to top up my car to the brim? 🤔 One of the Quora-ist mentions that it is insignificant to have the petrol tank pump to the brim. My personal take on the matter The whole shaking action is unnecessary. Once you hear the nozzle click, it means that the next time you'll have to refuel would be in 5 to 6 days, give or take. Shaking the car does not mean you'll extend that time significantly. Furthermore, over-filling your fuel tank could potentially result in damage to your vehicle’s charcoal cannister, which is part of its vapour recovery or Evaporative Recovery System.   If you really want to save fuel, drive like a saint and don't over-rev your car when driving. Always plan your route ahead and leave the house early so you will not drive like a madman.  Peace out! ✌️  



    Speeding Cerato loses control and crashes into Prius causing it to flip over

    In this footage uploaded by SG Road Vigilante, a speeding Kia Cerato lost control and collided with a Blue Toyota Prius along CTE (Before Yio Chu Kang Exit).  LATEST UPDATE : According to TNP,  two men were arrested for suspected drink driving. Meanwhile, the driver of the car that flipped over looked to be in a bad condition. The SCDF said the driver & his passenger were taken to Sengkang General Hospital. Both were conscious. (Source) Here's the video:   Here's the unfortunate Prius, driving patiently on a relatively empty CTE:
    After the Cerato collided, it sent both cars crashing into the railing, and the poor Prius was flipped over.  
    We're not sure why the Cerato lost control, because it's a relatively straight road. We're also not sure how fast the Cerato was going, but it looked like it was speeding.   Here's the reaction between the passenger and driver of the cam car:
    Cam Car Driver: Why are they speeding, for what???
    Cam Car Passenger (Man) A: Maybe drunk? *after driving off*
    Cam Car Passenger (Lady): Thank you so much for being alert!
    Cam Car Driver: I wasn't being alert - we are lucky! We are f***ing lucky man!!!   The video also sparked some reactions by fellow netizens:   We hope the drivers and passengers in involved in the accident are okay, and will post an update here once we receive the latest news.
