New Mercedes-Benz Actros brings the outside in
Big, imposing, formidable – the adjectives could almost fill the trailer unit on a current heavy Goods Vehicle, (HGV), truck or Artic. Grossing some 40tonnes, they are the lifeblood of both our commercial intent and our private demands – everything in our homes, shops and offices arrives courtesy of one of these behemoths, a fact often forgotten by those ignorant of the fact. New to our highways and byways is the Mercedes-Benz Actros and akin to all modern day heavy-haulers, it is packed with technology to inform and assist the driver on their mega-mileage journeys. It would be all too easy to assume that these road warriors are old-fashioned and unrefined, this latest Actros blowing that notion to the stratosphere, its offerings on a par and in some aspects beyond anything available to those driving less elevated machinery.

ŠKODA have been on the road since the late 1890’s, its heritage right there with the pioneers of motor motion. They’ve certainly come a long way since, their addition to the Volkswagen Group of vehicles in 2000, having been in joint partnership with them since 1991, accelerating their image and model production in equal measure.

Motor Industry Appoints New SIMI President Gabriel Keane
Gabriel Keane, who is Managing Director and owner of Kia Liffey Valley, Dublin was elected President of the Society of the Irish Motor Industry (SIMI), at the organisation’s AGM held recently in Killashee Hotel, Naas, Co. Kildare. Speaking at SIMI’s AGM, Gabriel Keane commented that he has experienced the highs and lows of the industry. “Some great years and some terrible years. And unfortunately, 2019 will not go down in the annals as a great year. Over the last three years we have seen the new car market decline by nearly 25%. Obviously, Brexit was the main cause of this downturn and while we are by no means out of the woods on Brexit there is a feeling that a softer Brexit may become a reality. I do believe that if this happens, we will see growth in the new car market in 2020.”

Albeit a short dive a its launch is not enough to hock the family jewels in order to acquire one, this new GLE showed enough of its hand to be taken very seriously.
