MONSTER MERCEDES-BENZ GLS 400D BLENDS LUXURY WITH MULTI-ROLE SEVEN SEATER Road test: Colin Smith Pictures: Colin Smith

S

ome sense of scale is applied to the 5.2-metre long Mercedes-Benz GLS 400d thanks to optional 23-inch diameter wheels — the largest I’ve ever rolled on — not looking ridiculously over-sized. The new generation (X167) GLS just launched in New Zealand is the largest of the Mercedes-Benz luxury SUV models and extends the GLE platform to deliver the status and luxury that applying the letter S generally brings to a MercedesBenz. You might say the GLS is to the GL family of SUV models what the S-Class is to its saloons and coupes. The GLS 400d is not only memorable for being my first ride on 23-inch diameter wheels. The other stand-out attribute is the sixcylinder diesel engine which excels for high torque, effortlessly smooth response and impressive fuel efficiency. And when it’s worked a little harder to shift 2.4-tonnes of seven-seat SUV, the muted in-line six-cylinder growl is perhaps the best engine note produced by any current MercedesBenz that doesn’t hail from the AMG line. The full-size GLS has a number of other highlights. The increased dimensions deliver the plush comfort, space and luxury appointment level you’d expect when considering the brand and price-tag supported. And there are broad-based practicalities of sevenseat accommodation, height adjustable air suspension to partner the 4Matic all-wheel-drive system

and the ability to tow 3500kg. And if you want to get more serious the GLS can be optioned with an Offroad Engineering Package that adds low ratio to the transmission, diff locking, under-body protection and Downhill Speed Regulation Control — but doing so removes those eyecatching 23-inch alloys from the menu. Just a single GLS variant is offered in New Zealand — the GLS 400d 4Matic with its 2925cc straight-six diesel developing a strong 243kW but getting its work done with a 700Nm plateau of torque available from 1200-3200rpm. Massive and accessible torque makes the GLS 400d totally relaxed on the highway with the 9G-Tronic transmission allowing the diesel to settle at only 1400rpm in ninth gear at 100km/h and slip through closeratio downshifts at 1600rpm in eighth, just under 2000rpm in seventh and 2400rpm in sixth. It’s a very rare occurrence when the big diesel six needs to work any harder than that. Considering the big GLS tips the scales at a shade more than 2.4 tonnes it can also muster a strong turn of pace with quick shifts allowing a sprint through 0-100km/ h in 6.3secs. Like any diesel the partthrottle overtaking urge is more impressive than the launch from standstill. Mercedes-Benz claims combined

cycle fuel consumption of 7.7L/100km and I averaged 7.8L/100km on a TaurangaHamilton return run and 8.1L/00km as an overall road test average. In city driving it should still return about 10.0L/100km. Air suspension gives the GLS a plush ride quality and settled stance by absorbing larger low speed bumps and maintaining damping composure over corrugated surfaces at highway speeds. The air suspension at its highest setting rises to 259mm of rough road ground clearance or it lowers itself to 179mm. There’s a whole lot of vehicle to change direction when the road gets twisty but the body control and grip is impressive with Pirelli P-Zero MO (run-flat) tyres in 285/40 R 23 sizing across the front and monster 325/35 R 23 rubber at the rear. It’s a $2100 option to upgrade from the standard 21-inch wheels. Exterior size translates into a very generous seven-seat interior. The second-row seats have power fold, recline and slide mechanisms and new for the X167 series the third row now power folds flat to extend the load area. The long wheelbase and sliding second row create third row seat space that is generous by sevenseater standards and there’s still a useful 355 litres of load space available when all seven seats are in use.

In the test vehicle the cabin featured Macchiato beige “rough” leather trim. The light — almost cream — colour opens up the cabin feel and gives a feeling of space that an expanse of black themes probably wouldn’t in vehicle this size. The light colour leather contrasts with dark open pore wood trim, metal pedals and the 64-colour ambient lighting choices. Apart from those massive wheels the exterior detailing includes two horizontal slats in the grille, running boards along the side, roof rails and the wide wheel arch flares. Among the standard specification highlights are the 590-watt, 13-speaker Burmester audio, power close doors and a powered tailgate, a panorama sliding sunroof, a wireless phone charger, head-up display, excellent multi-beam LED headlights with adaptive high beam control and a 360-degree camera display that is very helpful when trying to guiding the big GLS between the lines in a tight car park. With occupants able to be seated in

three rows the Thermotronic climate control gets extended to offer five-zone control. Up front the plush front seats are heated and ventilated with power cushion height/tilt, cushion length, slide/recline and headrest height adjustments and a three-position memory. The flat bottom steering wheel has powered reach and rake adjustments. The GLS is another new MercedesBenz model to adopt the MBUX infotainment system with its intelligent “Hey Mercedes” voice control. As a result of being optioned with the Innovations Package, the MBUX system in the press vehicle showcased the Augmented Reality navigation. When you have a destination programmed the front-facing camera display appears on the 12.3-inch touchscreen as you approach an intersection with direction arrows overlaid to point the way. The Innovation Package also allows a full screen navigation

The GLS 400d is luxury in a supersize serving and the wide-flared wheel arches framing those huge AMG wheels do provide a sense of ‘Monster truck meets luxury limousine’ to the appearance. Massive torque and impressive fuel efficiency from an engine that never needs to show more than a hint of effort is another part of the appeal from a full-size wagon that blends luxury with multi-role seven seater, rough road and 3.5-tonne towing capability.

Kamiq added to Skoda line-up By Colin Smith

S

koda is calling the new Kamiq the third model of its SUV lineup — although it could be argued the Octavia Scout and Superb Scout high-ride wagons already gave the Czech brand more than two SUV choices. The compact Kamiq — which launches in New Zealand next month — does become the third member of the “starts-with-K and ends-inQ” family of SUVs alongside the larger Kodiaq and Karoq models. The newcomer is the smallest of the trio with overall length measuring up at 4241mm to position the Kamiq as longer than a Nissan Juke but shorter than a Nissan Qashqai. It’s slightly shorter — but wider and taller — than a Mazda CX-3 but gains interior space benefits from a 2651mm wheelbase that is actually 21mm longer than the Karoq model. The Kamiq plays a strategic role for the Skoda brand by offering a lower SUV price point and competing in a fastgrowing Compact SUV sector of the market. “Demand for SUVs in New Zealand is continuously increasing. At present, SUVs account for 64 per cent of car sales, and last year the booming compact SUV segment saw an increase of 16 per cent,” said Rodney Gillard, Skoda New Zealand general manager. “The Kamiq is set to become a future pillar of our Skoda model range in this growing segment and will harness further potential for growth.”

All models for New Zealand will be front-wheel-drive with the entry level Ambition model priced from $30,990. Two TSI turbocharged petrol engines will be available with the three-cylinder 1.0-litre offering 85kW output for the base model and the 1.5-litre four-cylinder TSI producing 110kW for mid-grade and premium grades. All models have a seven-speed DSG transmission. The SUV design language shares cues with the Kodiaq and Karoq and it is the first Skoda to have split LED headlights with the daytime running lights element above the main headlights and dynamic rear indicators as standard. Dynamic front indicators are available with the full LED light option. Kamiq offers an elevated seat position and Skoda claims segment bests for the cabin space including rear headroom of 1003mm, elbow room of 1425mm and kneeroom of 73mm. Luggage capacity measures 400-litres and expands to 1395-litres by folding the 60:40 split rear seat. The interior provides 26-litres of space for stowing items and features soft materials on the dashboard and front door trims along with seat overs in Suedia microfibre material. The Kamiq can be customised with decorative trims, contrast stitching, ambient lighting and a Dynamic package. Climatronic air conditioning will be standard for the second tier Ambition+ and flagship Monte Carlo models. The Kamiq Monte Carlo has Sport Chassis Control

THE KAMIQ IS SET TO BECOME A FUTURE PILLAR OF OUR SKODA MODEL RANGE IN THIS GROWING SEGMENT . . . which lowers the vehicle by 15mm between Normal and Sport using Driving Mode Select. Sport Chassis Control can optionally be fitted to the other models. Being based on Volkswagen Group’s MQB-A0 platform enables a high level of active and passive safety technologies. There are up to nine airbags along with Lane Assist, Front Assist with City Emergency Brake, Driver Fatigue Alert and Cruise Control as standard. The Swing, Bolero and Amundsen systems are from the third generation of Volkswagen Group’s modular infotainment and offer displays measuring from 6.5 to 9.2-inches depending on model. Built-in SmartLink technology connects devices via Apple CarPlay, Android Auto or MirrorLink. Skoda’s Simply Clever design features include an umbrella stowed in the driver’s door, ice scraper in the fuel filler flap with a tyre tread depth gauge and the integrated funnel in the lid of the windscreen washer tank. Skoda Kamiq will initially launch in April with the 85kW Ambition model priced at $30,990 while the Ambition+ with 110kW TSI engine is $36,990. Pricing for the topof-the-range Kamiq Monte Carlo with the 110kW engine and equipped as standard with a panorama sunroof has yet to be confirmed and New Zealand stock is scheduled for July availability.

THE EVOLUTION OF THE SAT NAV Sat nav has rapidly changed from moving maps to 3D street maps

W

e’ve come a long way from navigating road trips using large fold-out maps that often led to confusion, arguing and, inevitably, asking a stranger for directions. With this in mind, we thought we’d tell you a little about where in-car satellite navigation started and where it’s headed. In 1930 a “map guidance tool” called Iter Avto was created. The device came with a set of paper maps. These were wrapped from one roll to another across a display and a cable connected to the speedometer controlled the scroll rate. The speed at which the display moved was proportional to the speed of the car, so it always showed the correct point. The problem was that the moment you drifted from your route, you would have to load a new map and find the exact spot of your location. The first true automotive navigation system was developed almost 40 years ago by Honda, Alpine and Stanley Electric and was called the Electro Gyro-Cator. Introduced in Japan in 1981, this “inertial navigation system” used a small helium gas gyroscope and was more like the systems used by fighter pilots in the Cold War. The unit was optional for the equivalent of about $2750 — nearly 25 per cent of the price of the cars in that day. Then there was Etak Navigator in 1985 that read map data from a cassette tape with each city listed on a different cassette. In 1987, Japan gave the automotive world two important advances in navigation technology. The first was the Japan-only Toyota Crown Royal Saloon G with an in-dash CD-ROM mapped dead-reckoning navigation

system and colour display. And in 1990, Mazda introduced the first GPS system for automotive navigational use. Offered in the top-of-the-line Eunos Cosmo cars, and (again) only available in gadgetloving Japan, Mazda’s navigation system was built into the car. Moving to 1997, Alpine introduced its version of a pop-out CD-ROM (stored map) navigation system that used GPS (Global Positioning System) satellites. Each CD disc containing mapping data covered only a few US states. However, this system would allow retrofitting and any car buyer could add GPS to a car. 1998 brought Garmin portable units, that opened the market to a wider audience. From there, GPS technology advanced into phones and into luxury vehicles. Today we have 3D views that see buildings rise inside the map and huge crystal-clear touch screens that can show incredible detail. Just when you thought the tech had reached its pinnacle there are a few recent additions. Mercedes-Benz has a new system called Active Distance Assist Distronic, where the speed preset is predictively reduced according to the route ahead of bends, junctions, or roundabouts, then increased once the road ahead allows. If the route has been selected using the navigation system, the car responds accordingly: if the car is in the slow lane, it decelerates when approaching the desired motorway exit. The same applies to junctions where the navigation route prescribes a turn-off or when the driver activates the turn indicator. The same manufacturer has also launched an augmented reality navigation upgrade. This is where navigation instructions are laid over objects in a live camera view. Street names, turn instructions and building addresses all pop up in a zoomed-in street view as you approach.
