WOW (Women on Wheels) - - WOW - Kelly Ed­wards, 28, ad­ver­tis­ing agency strate­gist

“Now the ta­bles are re­ally turned! In­stead of be­ing the car for my trendy city-slicker friends who like to cruise the malls, it’s be­come my dou­ble-duty week­end-war­rior and road trip fun car. “City life is hec­tic, so I can’t wait for the week­ends to hit the open road with a surf board on top and a bunch of besties in­side. It’s my ‘get­away’ car that can take us off the beaten track or off-road, open­ing up all sorts of ad­ven­tures. “Al­though it’s a smooth-as-but­ter-ride in the city, I re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate the off-road com­fort sus­pen­sion, as the body of the car is 30 mm higher, so I have bet­ter con­trol on bumpy high­ways and ragged ter­rain, and the easy steer­ing means I have power at my feet and fin­ger­tips. “It comes into its own with my ab­so­lute favourite fea­ture, the op­tional 360-de­gree cam­era that records the di­rect sur­round­ings all around the car so I never get stuck in awk­ward places! “It’s kind of hard to cat­e­gorise my GLA as it’s a gen­uine week­end war­rior but come Mon­day morn­ing, it’s there wait­ing to ferry me to the of­fice and af­ter-work cock­tails in sports star style. That’s what’s so amaz­ing as it fits so well into both my worlds. “If ever there was a won­der­ful way to grow out of my care­free days and into my fab­u­lous fu­ture, this is it.”

“I love this car be­cause... I can chill and re­lax while the state-ofthe-art driv­ing-as­sis­tance sys­tems kick in and take the strain out of driv­ing and out of me! What more would a girl want from her BFF on wheels? It’s got so many use­ful fea­tures that fit seam­lessly into all as­pects of my life and it’s very adapt­able, just like me. Like the LED High Per­for­mance head­lamps which have three in­ten­si­ties to han­dle all light lev­els from morn­ing to night.
