Buy one....you'll know the answer. No be by mouth
To be honest there are 2 Types of vehicles
1. Never die Mercedes Benz
2. Others
Try Mercedes Benz and I swear you would never use any other car. With Benz, you feel like a king on the road
For me E-class is the bomb.
For your imported European cars hit me up on both whatsapp or call 07065870508

I mean there are so many car brands out there. I mean exotic car brands Benz can't even compete with asides maybe the latest wagon models. But why is there the sudden craze for Benz ? A car you can't even mention where you say dodge, koenigsegg , Lamborghini, maseratti, Aston Martin etc. Those ones are in a class of their own, let me call them category one. category 2 then we call the likes of Chrysler, Porsche etc. Then category 3 maybe we can call whatever Benz model alongside models like Lexus and Hyundai.

It makes me remember the blackberry craze of those years and the way they swept the African brain aside. Every nigerian thought literally believed blackberry was the best thing in the world.

class,style,efficiency

When I say Lexus, I'm talking of models like you can see below. First is a sedan, second na SUV.
The highest Lexus can't stand close to a 2009 Maybach.

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?

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

@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.


OP and Sowore are related.

OP which Hyundai are you comparing with Benz.. Is it Hyundai sonata or Hyundai Santa Fe..

It's an insult to compare Benz with a car brand that the 2018 model can't even boost of having ordinary DVD.
Hyundai interior and dashboard can never be compared with Benz..



Why would you have a DVD player in a 2018 ride? You shot yourself in the foot

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.
VW like Benz which are German products are really good

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.

Different strokes sha
I have 2011 A6 and 2012 CC and yes both are no where close to E63 AMG, I dont want to even compare the CC to CL550 yet those two are average Benz.

No too blame am...buhari has messed up our currency to the extent people think that a car of $30k is a luxury item...

Are you guys crazy? We can debate if it's overrated or not, but S550? Base price $90K MSRP check it for yourself

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.
I am sure you are just joking and having fun, Benz trumped Audi at all categories, the only thing BMW have over Benz is speed and handling, Benz will floor BMW in every category for build quality and luxury.
have you ever ask yourself why world leaders, presidents and diplomats uses the S550 and not Audi A8, Lexus LS460 or BMW 7 series? Because they all play second fiddle to the S class.

AMG instead.
Re: Why The Sudden Madness For Benz Cars? by ajl: 2:10pm On Nov 09
Nothing but the best. Even my father that does not like material things owned one in the 70s and 80s, and would not stop talking about Benz. I used to own one, and even now that I drive another model, in my mind it's like I am noth really driving a car except I go back to Benz.

Did someone say Benz is not a luxury car? The person need to first understand that definition luxury car". He probably cant afford one. Sorry to say. Comparing Hyundai and Mazda models to Benz. Really?

And the person that said there is a new fever for Benz in Nigeria, I can imagine the generation you belong to. Benz have always been a top luxury vehicle in Nigeria. Back in the days, 70s to 90s, Volvo was a top competitor against Benz in Nigeria, meaning if you are really up there back in those days, if you don't buy Benz, then you buy a Volvo.

And another person listed Dodge. American cars are not built to measure up to German-made cars.

Your logic here is highly flawed.C300 is not even a super car.So how do you think people are going to notice you when they see Lamborghinis like water.

Lambs are in the category of the ferraris and its not even a "classic" brand compared to the rolls and maybachs

E350 of same year will still beat the Passat CC, the back seat of the CC is cramped with space for only two passengers which is a drawback. VW had to stop the production because the CC find it difficult competing with the E350 coupe abd CLS550.
