Both Leila Tong and Zac Koo has got their driving licenses for ten years. However, when it comes to familiarity about cars, Leila is much better at that.
Both of them were curious and started fiddling with the hi-tech facilities.
Making an appointment with Zac Koo and Leila Tong, who are both the leads for the stageplay '18m', to test out C280 Estate, the initial plan was for the guy to talk more and the girl to be photographed. Who would have expected that Leila was the one who wanted to try first and Zac was the one who was unclear about the use of the top part of the station wagon. There was a total change in roles and luckily, Leila, who is a pretty decent driver, took up the role of the driver and this did not ruin their experience of this C280 (3,000 cc) speed which is definitely not only 18m per second.
Spacious car boot Practical and stylish
There are two types of car owners. The first type refers to those who buys a car for simply for transportation purposes whereas the second type enjoys the feeling and joy of driving, and they are those who will like to test drive whenever they see a new car. Despite being unsure if Zac Koo, who plays the role of Hung Chung Yam in '18m' enjoys the speed of cycling, what we are certain of is that he belongs to the first type of car owner. Zac just bought a brand new Prius hybrid car for transport purposes and this shows that he looks out for practicality when it comes to cars. Zac said,"The five-year warranty is really attractive and it saves petrol. I have to top up the petrol only once in two weeks. " As for the other lead, Leila, who is playing a couple with Zac, nearly drooled when shed saw the huge C280 Estate wagon. "I love those really guy-ish cars and the bigger is is, the more it is suitable for me. Previously I was also driving wagons and I really like the spacious car boots. It's really cool! " Leila exclaimed. The car boot of C280 is definitely not for show only. If the back row seats are folded, its storage capacity can go up to 1500 litres, making it really practical and it can even store a few bicycles.
Alot of people like these sort of wagons partly because of its attractive appearance, but also the top cover which gives the entire car a sporty feel. Leila said that this is the best part she likes about the wagon. However, Zac actually asked, "Actually what is the usage of these two things?" Seeing this guys lack of knowledge about cars, everyone could guess that he did not really have the urge to test drive the car...
Both of them buy the idea of the car boot with storage capacity of up to 1500 litres.
3000cc engine Powerful yet silent
At this moment, Leila asked while looking at me (the journalist) with her big eyes, "Can I really test drive this car?" Never underestimate Leila's small size and her demure look. When testing out the C280 with its 3000cc engine and the 7.5seconds from 0-100km/hr, she will go all the way to feel the 231hp. Leila exclaimed, "Wow! It feels really good and smooth! Previously I have never tried driving cars with such powerful engines. So it really feels so strong. Although I have never liked such powerful cars as I'm afraid it would be noisy, however C280 is really powerful and quiet enough. Really good! Last time i did not really like Benz estate cars as I felt that the front and back of the car is too narrow, making it look genteel in front and sporty at the back. However the modified style of this new generation of car feels much better and looks more stylish. If there's a chance, I will definitely buy an estate car. "
