The car is just there. If you drive that kind of thing in a supercar city like Dubai, London , Los Angeles, or newyork, nobody go look your side.
the same way no one will at you twice with a lexus of that year too(2008).
Go there and drive a 2017 benz and see what happens.
Don't stay in your backyard and be pulling facts from your ass angry

At least someone thinking like me.

Some of them will even be driving that 4matic series or e or c class and still be making noise. The brand is good no doubt but its overhyped to the extent that Nigerians even tag it as a luxury/exotic car. We go even first mention Audi, BMW , ford etc before you mention any Benz.
ford?nigga go and make money and be enlightened.

Benz is a vehicle for Presidents. The Pope uses a Benz, the Arab sheiks use Benz cars, most billionaires use Benz cars.

It's not for people like the OP whose destiny is to ride Hyundai not Benz.

@OP, I think some of us can pardon your ignorance seeing that you actually don't know about cars. If you do, the way you jam packed supercar brands, luxury brands and economy brands, you won't try it.

How do you put Chrysler and Porsche in same line and sentence, how can you call Mercedes-Benz and Hyundai in same sentence, how can you merge Dodge with koenigsegg and Lamborghini in the same class.??

I advise you to go and learn a few things about cars and brands first. When you are done with that, I assure you that then and then only would you know why the sudden craze of Benz has taken place in Nigeria at this time.
It's not about knowing the cars, It's about buying them. No go hustle, dey here dey form over sabi for cars. Cristiano and Messi did they have time to know about cars before buying the coolest brands?

Over sabi

Nigerians are original follow-follow....they hardly research..all they do is follow follow..

I drive a VW passat CC..that car is a million times better than any benz but the average Nigerian will rather opt for a benz than a VW.

Passat ,especially the cc drives well but my fear is that it doesn't torolect abuse

Exactly...abuse is the bane of VW.

I remember using those itire guys..omoh..they spoilt my car tire..till i discovered one guy that works with stallion motors...my life changed for the better...these days, i rather spend thousands in stallion fixing it with professionals than saving money patronizing all these roadside quacks.

That car is grossly under-rated...its a beast and monster mixed in one.

Hyundai make exotic models . Models your beloved Benz can't even compete with. How many celebs both local and foreign dey drive Benz.? Its just like a plane where you have first, business and economy class.

Benz na for economy class. Its for people who can't afford luxury but want something 30% close to luxury.

This thread should even be on FP lalasticlala autojosh.

Sorry but I've also been wondering like the OP. The sudden hype and boom of Benz in Nigeria is confusing. Just like the op said, it can be likened to the blackberry phones fever between 2009-2014. Benz is not a luxury car brand please. Its an economy car. I'll gladly rate cars like 2018 ford fusion , Hyundai equus, Mazda 6 2018 above most models of your beloved benz. It's a good car brand no doubt. But the overhype na die. Suddenly everybody dey shout Benz for their music. Go to Europe and america nobody even knows what is Benz. Innobets I sight u
.. U wan buy Benz too?

Not every one can afford a Merc....na big boys car infact it's a car that has categories for every type of individual.

If you want speed go for AMG
If you want Luxury go for S class (s65)
If you want the Ultimate Luxury go for Maybach
If you want something of everything go for the E class
As a typical Nigerian you best bet should be the A class (esp A45) since Una like to drive speed anyhow and very compact

U say less than $30k that's the starting price for an ordinary A class besides the s550 na old car but still looks modern....that's one of the advantage of having a Merc.

Even the suppose competitors of the Merc which is the Audi BMW and Volkswagen are not as expensive as the Merc still while Porsche it's in its class if its own with a direct competitor of the Merc AMG GT

pls stop it.. what do you mean by placing a Benz with a Hyundai? Pls they re in two different classes of their own and the C300 you used is still to me one if the under powered ones... If I'm to use a Benz that'd satisfy me in all ramifications, I'd start with a 350 of any of the classes.

The other cars you mentioned are in a class of their own entirely while a Benz is in its own lane with the likes of Audi, BMW, VW depending in the classes. Don't also forget that Mercedes has a class for every class of car out there be it Rolls Royce, Ferrari or what have you in the embodiment of Maybach to be in par with Rolls or easily compared, Mercedes GTS to easily be compared with Ferraris, and other super cars, and A, B, C, E and a few other classes to be on par with other cars in almost same league with them. There is a lot about Mercedes that you do not know but let's stop here...

I know you'd want to lash back for saying Maybach can be compared to a Rolls Royce but I'll tell you this, a rolls is just too much hype and self glorification... Tear both the Rolls-Royce and the Maybach down piece by piece and you'll see how alike they are..

OK bye...

bia nwoke if this is a joke just stop it.... there are only two cars on this planet Rolls Royce and others... the highest maybach cannot even compete with a Base model Phantom. an s600 maybach isn't even near a Bentley mulsanne. As long as the realm of cars are concerned, Rolls is king. show some respect.

Leave whether i can afford $30k or not...lets not derail this thread

Bentley,rolls royce, BMW 750and Audi A8...my personal opinion chief.

The audi is madt ...drove the A8 once and was wowed...and yes i have test driven the G63 and S550 but trust me..the A8 is class.

I will gladly take a 2017 passat to a 2017 e-class.

lol..the uglier the better...have you seen the passat 2017 model...classic..

Please try and test drive a passat cc and you will be wowed..i stay in ajah and will glady allow u test drive my cc for u to feel what a car feels like.

The movement,the acceleration,speed and the madt sound system..leave matter bro..VW is for very few good men like me grin grin

The Audi in general is a force...it's a car that will highly be recommend over the bm and merc in cases of comfortability, reliability and speed and in terms of handling give it to the bm...

But in this space the Merc S class still even competes with the Bentley's and Roll's Royce

lol... Like I said... Self glorification... Don't let all the hype given to a Rolls woo you... I sell cars and ve had the privilege of selling a Rolls Royce and also knowing someone with both 2 wraiths and a Maybach.. I know what I'm saying, however, to each his own... Just know this sha. A rolls is not really king like they make it seem.

Agege bread sold in Eko hotel will definitely not be sold for 50 naira... All Na just hype. You said there's no Maybach to be in par with a Rolls Royce? Lmao... I'll do you one better... Check out the Maybach Emperor. There are only 10 N750m Mercedes Maybach S600 Emperor 2016 in the world. Only 10

It packs a 6.3L V12 twin turbocharged engine with 900 hp from the world’s most powerful workhorse – the Brabus Rocket 900. This engine allows it to rocket from 0 to 100 kmph in a neck-snapping 3.7 seconds before topping out 430 kmph.
