Protecting breeding penguins

aim of Sumner beach boulders

FIFTEEN boulders placed on

Sumner beach near Shag Rock

will help protect white-flippered

penguins during their nesting

season.

When the Coastal Pathway

was built, nesting boxes were

included in the rock embankment

by Shag Rock as it as an area where

the penguins are known to nest and

breed between August and February

each year.

Over the last breeding season,

there was evidence of five pairs of

penguins breeding in the area.

Said city council transport

planning and delivery manager

Lynette Ellis: “We want to make sure

these penguins have a secure nesting

spot that is undisturbed by people

or dogs. On the advice of our coastal

rangers we recently placed additional

boulders to give them some more

protection.”

She said the white-flippered

penguin is endemic to Canterbury

and is classified by the Department

of Conservation as acutely

threatened.

“It is important that we do all we

can to protect the nesting areas.

“It’s amazing to have these birds

breeding in a spot so close to an

urban area and we want people to

have a sense of guardianship. The

last thing we want is people or their

animals inadvertently disturbing

the nesting penguins.’’

Ms Ellis said people can still access

the beach at Shag Rock from the

Coastal Pathway but they should use

the access stairs, which are located

a bit further along the path towards

Sumner.

The city council gained consent to

place the rocks in January and was

not required to notify the public.

But Redcliffs resident Pat McIntosh

said she believed the city council

should have told the public what it

was doing.

“It came as a bit of a surprise.”

The city council has been

contacted five times by 11 different

people over the boulders – one of

those was a complaint.

Meanwhile, the city council

and Environment Canterbury are

currently investigating options to

address the issue of rock spoil which

has come to the surface of

the sand near Shag Rock following

the construction of the Coastal

Pathway.

THE MYSTERY of why

boulders appeared near Shag

Rock has been solved (see

page 1).

The 15 boulders will help

protect white-flippered penguins

during their nesting

season from dogs and people.

Nesting boxes were

included in the Coastal

pathway embankment but

more protection has been

deemed necessary – hence

the boulders.

The penguins nest and

breed between August and

February.

White-flippered penguins

are acutely threatened so very

good care needs to be taken

for their protection.

So it’s great to see the city

council doing its bit.

And for Joe Public – stay

away and keep your dog on

a lead if you are near Shag

Rock.

That could be easier said

than done, I suspect.

Funding decisions on projects due

• By Jess Gibson

TWO HERITAGE buildings

in the Bay Harbour News area

could be getting a spruce up

with help from the city council.

Decisions will be made tomorrow

over a $4872 grant towards

works on

Akaroa Lighthouse,

and a

$13,549 grant

towards the

painting of 2

Cunningham

Tce, Lyttelton.

Tori Peden

Both grants

would cover

50 per cent of

the funds needed to complete

each project.

Banks Peninsula Community

Board chairwoman Tori

Peden said having the heritage

landmarks being protected and

taken care of is important.

“It would keep the character

and keep our history. We’ve got

to tell the story of these heritage

structures and how the history

of our people came to be.”

Akaroa’s Lighthouse Preservation

Society applied for funding

to carry out maintenance,

conservation, and display of the

original clockwork mechanism

and machinery of the structure

on Beach Rd.

The heritage item is New

Zealand’s only operating decommissioned

lighthouse and

one of a very limited number of

lighthouses in the world which is

regularly open to the public.

The lighthouse, constructed

tomorrow over two grants which would be

in 1878, is run entirely by

the community volunteers of

the LPS, which is reliant on

donations and grants to support

their work and maintain the

structure.

A separate report by Resource

Management Group Ltd

recommends the approval of a

grant to paint the building at

2 Cunningham Tce, Lyttelton,

which was built in the 1870s.

The recommended grant

would pay for part of the proposed

works to the property,

which has high historical and

social significance for its association

with prominent Canterbury

businessmen and civic figures

John Thomas Peacock and Peter

Cunningham.

In a slightly later period, the

house has significance for its

use as a boarding house, and for

the long period of ownership

and occupation by the Robson-

Merrifield family.

It reflects a characteristic

feature of Lyttelton life through

to the mid-20th-century, where

properties were commonly

retained in and passed down

through families over multiple

generations.

In Brief

CRASH SITE INVESTIGATION

City council traffic engineers

and police were set yesterday

to investigate a fatal crash on

Summit Rd. It would focus on the

role road infrastructure played in

a May 19 crash where Anthony

Deverson, 78, of Wigram, died

after his car went over a bank

about 1km from Evans Pass Rd.

The city council is also looking

at road safety improvements

for a different section of the

road following the death of

sisters Tayla, 17, and Sunmara

Alexander, 15, in a crash last year.

FUNDS FOR PATHWAY

Funding has been secured for a

project which will see the Moncks

Bay section of the Coastal

Pathway temporarily widened to

enable social distancing. The city

council has received more than

$80,000 from the Government

to pay for the project, as well as

another one in the central city

which involves putting temporary

measures in place at pedestrian

and cycling pinch points.

JETTY BEAM REPLACEMENTS

Two rotten beams and one rotten

pile will be replaced at Redcliffs

Jetty, off Beachville Rd. The

jetty will be closed and unusable

during the maintenance period,

which is scheduled to take place

from June 2 to June 19.

Online book

initiative for seniors

AN ONLINE book programme has

been set up with older Cantabrians

in mind, aiming to maintain social

interaction with others while physically

distanced.

Campfire - Stories Read Aloud for

Adults was created by the city council’s

libraries staff, featuring a fresh chapter

read by librarians from a book every

Wednesday and Friday.

City council head of libraries and

information Carolyn Robertson said

library staff produced the programme

with “our older adult community in

mind and in collaboration with Age

Concern.”

“It is a story time for seniors as we

help ensure that our older library users

remain engaged during the lockdown,”

she said.

“We believe

Campfire can boost

well-being for older

adults and bring a

fresh face – and voice

– to their day. They

can watch and listen

to our librarians as

they read aloud.

Ms Robertson

said for many older

people who have enjoyed books, listening

to another voice can bring comfort in

connection.

“Some may have also lost the ability to

read because of poor eyesight or physical

impairments. We want to hold on to that

social interaction and love of books.”

Age Concern Canterbury chief

executive Simon Templeton has

welcomed the story time programme,

describing Campfire as “a great

initiative.”

“Older people are often avid readers,

so any programme that enables people

to stay connected with their library, with

others and with reading is great,” Mr

Templeton said.

“Some specific groups will benefit,

including those with vision impairment,

dexterity issues, or the housebound. I

think this type of programme will grow

in popularity as the population ages.

“I see it as a daily part of residential

care therapy for rest home residents, and

the means to have a ‘book club’ for those

who can’t read.

“While many older people do not use

the internet, there is a large number who

do – and this is growing,” he said.

Anyone can access Campfire via the

libraries’ website.

Stabilisation work

on slip under way

• By Jess Gibson

Carolyn

Robertson

A NEW retaining wall is being installed

on Wainui Main Rd in French Farm to

stabilise a localised slip which happened

early last year.

As well as building the retaining wall,

city council contractors will carry out

a partial reconstruction of the road,

minor drainage works and associated

civil works.

The cost of the remediation work will

cost between $250,000 and $275,0000.

There will be some noise disturbance

during the work, which will be carried

out from 7am to 7pm, Monday to

Saturday, and the road will be reduced

to one lane.

For residents on Wainui Main Rd,

bins are to be put out as usual before

6am on the set collection day and the

crew will move and return them.

Black Cat retains ferry contract

Phil Clearwater

BLACK CAT Cruises will

continue to connect Diamond

Harbour with Lyttelton by

sailing across the harbour for

another 12 years.

The company, which has been

operating the Diamond Harbour

ferry service since 2000, has

retained its contract by completing

Environment Canterbury’s

public transport procurement

process.

Transport

portfolio lead

councillor

Phil Clearwater

said that

ECan is looking

forward to

continuing its

partnership with Black Cat.

Together they are still looking

at options to get a new, lowemission

vessel as the current

ferry is nearing end of life.

Bay Harbour News reported in

October they aimed to have the

new vessel in service by 2021 but

Cr Clearwater said it may now

be another year out.

“It’s slower than myself or

Black Cat would desire but

equally they are working on it as

hard as they can.

“As we investigate options

for a new vessel, top of mind

will be our community’s desire

for a low-emission public

transport fleet, something we

heard resoundingly through our

Regional Public Transport Plan

consultation.

He said over the next two

years, ECan will work alongside

Black Cat to make an informed

decision on the propulsion system

of a new ferry.

“This will include closely

watching the results of other

electric ferry implementations as

they progress, as well as engaging

with local Canterbury boat

builders.”

The new contract allows for essential

maintenance work to be

undertaken on the current ferry

so it can continue operating for

the next few years, while plans

and costs for a new vessel are

finalised.

Cr Clearwater said the contract

period has been extended

SMOOTH SAILING:

Black Cat Cruises

has retained its

contract for the

Diamond Harbour

ferry service.

HUNTER

from nine years to 12 years and

will start from November this

year.

“The first two years will see

the contract price remain as it is

now, except to accommodate the

critical maintenance work on the

current vessel. The remaining 10

years will reflect the new vessel

build and running costs.

'The feasibility work done so

far indicates that the cost of an

electric vessel could be similar to

a diesel-powered vessel, so if we

can be confident that an electric

vessel can meet the requirements

of the service then we will

commission one.”

Boy racer

numbers reach

pre-Covid levels

• By Matt Slaughter

POLICE ARE disappointed

the number of boy racers in

Lyttelton has increased to pre-

Covid-19 levels since level 2

started.

Canterbury road policing

manager Inspector Greg Cottam

said extra police were on patrol

over the weekend and saw an

increase in the number of boy

racers compared to during alert

level 3.

“We’re seeing them popping

up in the normal spots, at the

airport and over in Lyttelton

way.

“Everything’s probably

returning to normal, which is

disappointing because we still

want people behaving. The

reality is that Covid is still

here.

“We have seen more activity

from that sort of community,”

he said

Inspector Cottam said it is

important drivers take the rules

of level 2 seriously and police

will be there to enforce them if

they do not.

“We’ll be enforcing the

restrictions that are set down for

that, along with any breaches of

the Land Transport Act.”

Concerns problem gambling

could rise under Covid-19 climate

With financial hardship

and unemployment

on the rise as a result

of the Covid-19 crisis,

could problem gambling

follow suit? Louis Day

investigates

THE NUMBER of people on

the job seeker benefit across

Canterbury rose by 4.8 per cent

last month compared to the same

period last year.

The situation is likely to worsen

with the city’s economic development

agency ChristchurchNZ

forecasting

up to 36,500

jobs will be

lost across the

region over

the next 12

months.

A recent

Dr Ekant Veer

survey from

the Canterbury

Employers’

Chamber of Commerce

showed 63 per cent out of 470

businesses across the region were

experiencing “significant financial

impacts” from Covid-19. The

survey also showed 30 per cent

of businesses believed their staffing

numbers would have to be

reduced by more than 25 per cent

in order to survive.

Canterbury University professor

of marketing Dr Ekant Veer,

who closely studies social change

and consumption patterns, said

research showed there was a link

between problem gambling and

financial hardship.

“We know that people who

are facing financial hardship in

general, not necessarily who are

unemployed, are more likely to

gamble. As we see a society in

where everyone’s incomes are

taking a hit we may see gambling

rise as a result of that,” he said.

Statistics show gambling in

New Zealand has been on a

steady incline for the last nine

years.

SPIKE: The financial hardship brought on by Covid-19 restrictions and economic downturn is

expected to bring a spike in problem gambling.

PHOTO: GETTY

In 2011 New Zealanders spent

$2 billion on gambling. Last

year it had increased to $2.4 billion.

The most popular form of

gambling last year was gaming

machines outside of casinos at

$924 million which was followed

by the $616 million spent inside

of casinos.

Salvation Army Oasis Centre

for Problem Gambling team

leader Graham Payne expected to

see a spike in gambling as restrictions

eased, with a particular

concern over pokie machines

within pubs and bars. He has

helped problem gamblers with

their addictions since 1992.

“When people who have got

gambling issues haven’t done it

for a while there is going to be

that catch-up phase, that is how

they operate, ‘I haven’t done it for

a while I need to catch up I have

saved all this money.’ I feel that

issues could really increase over

the first three to six months with

the pubs reopening,” he said.

Mr Payne had also witnessed

an increase in online gambling

over the lockdown period and

expected it to continue even as

other forms of gambling are

made available.

He said early signs of gambling

becoming an addiction were that

pokie machines.

“Pokies are the most harmful

form of gambling in New

Zealand. The majority of people

that seek help for a gambling

problem do so because of pokie

machines,” she said.

The foundation is currently

urging the Government to cut

back the country’s pokie machines

in coalition with The

Salvation Army and Māori health

agency Hapai te Hauora.

Ms Froude said the main reason

behind this was to reduce the

reliance community groups have

on grants from pokie trusts,

but also to reduce gamblingrelated

harm across the country.

A letter from the coalition to

Internal Affairs Minister Tracey

Martin said the Government

could easily replace the $242

million worth of pokie grants

from within its own funds and

argued the shutdown of pubs

and pokie machines due to the

pandemic presented a “golden

opportunity” for an overhaul of

the system.

Readers respond to

last week’s article

about Foodstuffs

South Island’s decision

to transform Redcliffs

New World into a Four

Square

Julia Pringle – I am

still disappointed that New

World will now become a

Four Square. I will likely

go to another New World

instead.

Ann Newsom – I think

it may backfire on them actually,

I’ve spoken to quite

a number of people who

have said they’re not going

to be shopping there if it’s

going to be a Four Square. I

wouldn’t do a weekly shop

there now, like I have been.

Helen Peate – I do

all my grocery shopping

at Redcliffs New World as

do many of my friends. Nowhere

have I read or heard

the reason that it is more

financially viable for the

name to change from New

World to Four Square. Both

are owned by Foodstuffs.

So why the name change

and reduction in staff

numbers? Are we going to

get less choice and cheaper

products or a reduction in

service? Why has there not

been an explanation?

Michaela Hicks – I

read the article in the newspaper

about the transition

for Redcliffs New World to

become a Four Square. As

a previous employee there,

I think that a rebrand is

good for the store as it is

not turning over a sustainable

income. However,

I would’ve thought they

could rebrand it to a mini

Pak’n’ Save like they have

at Levin, as it would be of

good size, and the prices

would be cheaper. I think

because Four Square is

more expensive than a New

World it may not thrive as

people may go to another

supermarket.

ONE OF the more

colourful native birds seen

around the estuary is the

welcome swallow or warou.

In fact, people are often

surprised the swallow’s

appearance when they see

a photo as there are not

many opportunities to see

them close up.

But large flocks are

common on the edges

of the estuary and

particularly around the

oxidation ponds when

they are erratically darting

above the water to catch

midgets.

Elsewhere they will also

feed on flies, moths and

other small insects.

Did you know that the

swallow even drinks water

in flight? They swoop up

water as they fly above the

ponds or estuary.

The swallow is also one of

few bird species that sleep

or rest in flight as they

prefer to stay airborne 24/7

BIRDS OF THE ESTUARY

Tanya Jenkins is the manager of the Avon-Heathcote Estuary Ihutai

Trust, a non-profit organisation formed in 2002 to protect one of

New Zealand’s most important coastal wetlands. Each week she

introduces a new bird found in the estuary. Her column aims to raise

the understanding of the values and uniqueness of the area.

Swallow likes to be airborne

unless they are nesting.

They only reach the age

of about six years, but they

sure make the most of

their time by producing

two, sometimes even three

clutches of eggs per season.

The female will incubate

the eggs alone but feeding

the chicks is a shared

task with help from other

swallow family members.

It is so lovely to see how

some bird species use this

combined effort and share

the load of chick feeding

duties.

The other notable fact

is how the swallow has

adapted so cleverly to

civilisation and now prefers

to build their cup-shaped

nests under the eaves of

homes away from direct

sunlight, or under bridges

or culverts.

The swallow is another

truly stunning and amazing

bird in our estuary

worth looking after - so

how can we help them to

thrive?

Predator control, picking

up litter when we see it and

of course, keeping our dogs

on the lead. Luckily the

city council has established

great dog parks all around

the city so no excuse to

let dogs roam around our

estuary.

No lawn too big.

No job too small.

Tasty Bites

Quick and easy fried rice

• By Ian Knott

Quick, easy and versatile,

fried rice can be used

as a side dish or main

meal. This tasty version is

loaded with vegetables

and can be transformed

into something even

greater by adding your

favourite protein

The best fried rice

4-6 servings

Ingredients

3 tbsp butter, divided

2 eggs, whisked

2 medium carrots, peeled, diced

1 small white onion, diced

½ cup frozen peas

3 cloves garlic, minced

salt and black pepper

4 cups cooked and chilled rice

3 green onions, thinly sliced

3-4 tbsp soy sauce

2 tsp oyster sauce (optional)

½ tsp toasted sesame oil

Directions

Heat ½ tbsp of butter in a large

sauté pan over medium-high

heat until melted. Add egg, and

cook until scrambled, stirring

occasionally. Remove egg, and transfer

to a separate plate.

Add an additional 1 tbsp of butter

to the pan and heat until melted. Add

carrots, onion, peas, garlic, and season

with a generous pinch of salt and

pepper. Sauté for about 5min or until

the onion and carrots are soft. Increase

heat to high, add in the remaining ½

tbsp of butter, and stir until melted.

Immediately add the rice, green onions,

soy sauce and oyster sauce (if using),

and stir until combined. Continue stirring

for an additional 3min to fry the rice.

Then add in the eggs and stir to combine.

Remove from heat, and stir in the sesame

oil until combined. Taste and season with

extra soy sauce, if needed.

Serve immediately, or refrigerate in a

sealed container for up to 3 days.

Top tips

It’s important to use cold, cooked rice.

So plan ahead and have some prepared.

Warm rice doesn’t tend to fry well when

it hits the hot pan and becomes soggy,

sticky clumps.

If you haven’t planned ahead, just

cook up a fresh batch of rice, spread it

out as thinly as possible on a backing

tray and put it in the fridge for 30min

(or freezer for 10-15min).

Use a high heat. This will help

brown the rice and vegetables, and

prevent the rice from steaming in

the pan. Don’t leave it sitting too

long though. Nobody wants burnt

fried rice.

Stop Surviving Start Fighting

by Jazz thornton

A hard-hitting, thought-provoking account of surviving suicide attempts

and moving on to a better life, which provides practical help and

inspiration to anyone affected by depression or suicide. Jazz Thornton first

attempted to take her own life at the age of 12. Multiple attempts followed

and she spent time in psychiatric wards and under medical supervision as

she rode the rollercoaster of depression and anxiety through her teenage

years - yet the attempts continued. Find out what Jazz learned about

how her negative thought patterns came to be, and how she turned those

thoughts - and her life - around. Who and what helped, and what didn’t

help. The insights she gives will help create greater understanding of those

grappling with mental illness, and provide support for those around them

who desperately want to help. Jazz went on to attend film school, and to co-found Voices of Hope, a

non-profit organisation dedicated to helping those with mental health issues and show them there is

a way forward. She creates online content to provide hope and help.

Chardonnay a true

peach of a grape

• By Mark Henderson

A HUGE number of

variables can influence

the retail price of a bottle

of wine, including the

amount and consequent

cost of viticultural and

winemaker input, yield per

hectare, oak usage, scarcity,

demand, market position

and market forces.

Today’s collection of

chardonnays covers the

gamut of pricing from

widely available value-formoney

offerings through

to scarce, limited-release

bottlings.

It’s a reminder of the

variety of styles produced

with this grape that can

certainly offer something

for everyone.

2018 Kono Nelson

Chardonnay

Price: $19.95

Rating: Very good to

excellent

Attractively fragrant

nose, Fruit driven with ripe

tropical fruits, peach and

warm bread. Creamy entry

and good texture, a hint

of oak underlay backing

the ripe fruits, showing

good richness through the

mouth with bright lift from

a grapefruit-like touch on

the close. Not huge but

generous nevertheless.

Lovely drinkability.

2018 Main Divide

North Canterbury

Chardonnay

Price: $20.99

Rating: Good to very good

Powerful nose with

smoke and struck match,

a backdrop of white peach

and stonefruits. Smoky,

charry notes dominate

the palate, while the fruit

has a sweet ’n’ sour zing to

it. No doubting the fruit

intensity, and possibly

crowd appeal, but the

apricot kernel bittersweet

note masks the finish for

me.

Vineyard Gimblett

Gravels Chardonnay

Price: $80

Rating: Outstanding

Expressively fragrant

nose of sweet cedar, warm

while there’s clear power

here, it retains a wonderful

lightness, brightness and

energy.

2018 Pegasus Bay

Chardonnay

Price: $44

Rating: Excellent

Brooding nose offering

struck match and a saline,

seashell-like note with

melding with citrus and

almond-led nuttiness on

the long close.

Lifted nose with

There’s a cool wellspring

filling the palate led by

with riper pineapple and

oak as the wine aerates.

Creamy texture, notable

weight in the mouth.

Potential yet to come,

2019 Jules Taylor

Marlborough

Chardonnay

Price: $24.99

Rating: Very good to

excellent

Fruit jubes and ripe

pears lead, evolving

to peach, spices and

perfumed oak. An oily

richness frames the palate.

Peach and stonefruits flow

through the palate to a

lightly tannic, long nutty

finish. The bright acidity

adds a lemony hint and

freshness. Youthful, but

already drinking very

nicely.

Wednesday May 27 2020

MERCEDES-Benz has a huge

range of sport utility vehicles.

That is no surprise, the market

is demanding cars that cater for

many roles – family transport as

well as practicality.

The most popular SUV in the

luxury car maker’s range is the

GLC and, not surprisingly, it is

available in a series which accounts

for eight variants. There

is a petrol-electric hybrid model,

a plug-in EV, and those with

the choice of four, six or eightcylinder

engines; there’s even a

two-wheel-drive model.

However, most incorporate the

4Matic system which sends drive

to each corner.

It must also be noted that the

GLC is a series which incorporates

coupe-type models as well

as the traditional SUV.

The entire GLC range has just

had a bit of a refresh, there’s been

a styling change, and buyers now

have the choice of varying suspension

types, depending on how

the vehicle will be used, and the

surfaces it is likely to travel on, on

a daily basis.

The range spans prices from

$87,600 to $187,400.

The vehicle this evaluation focuses

on is GLC 300, a mid-range

SUV which lists at $102,500 in

standard form.

The 300 effectively replaces

the 250 from a year or two back.

Put simply, the four-cylinder

turbocharged petrol engine has

had a power and torque increase,

up from 155kW and 350Nm to

190kW and 370Nm.

The increase doesn’t affect the

silent and smooth operation of

the 2-litre, four cylinder unit. It is

a high-performing engine but it

does everything without making

a fuss, it searches the rev band

well but works fluidly through

the mid-range, maximum torque

arrives at 1800rpm and spreads to

4000rpm, and with peak power

arriving at just 5800rpm there is

no drop-off in performance.

A lot of that is also garnered

through the seamless flow of

gearing courtesy of a nine-speed

automatic transmission.

This engine is a powerhouse

through the whole acceleration

process, it will cut out a standstill

to 100km/h time of 6.1sec, and

will make 120km/h from 80km/h

in 3.8sec. Steering wheel-mounted

paddle shifters will assist the

driver if he/she decides to take

control over the acceleration

process.

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Many options in Mercedes-Benz GLC range

MERCEDES-BENZ GLC 300: Boost in power for 2020.

It wouldn’t be a world-class

engine unless you get the benefits

of thrifty fuel usage, and that is

certainly the case in the 300. It

is rated by Mercedes-Benz with

an 8.1-litre per 100km combined

cycle average.

These figures are all quite

remarkable for a vehicle which

weighs in a little tubby at 1804kg,

but the point is that the engineering

which is coming out of

European factories at the moment

is at the forefront of technology,

and the GLC is just one example

of performance and economy all

rolled into one.

Time was a little against me on

the day I went testing and I didn’t

venture as far as I would normally

travel in an evaluation car. However,

on the roads west heading

home through Burnham and Lincoln

I got a thorough understanding

of the GLC’s behaviour on

the seal, and I enjoyed its nimble

and agile nature given that it is a

mid-size SUV.

Riding on huge 20in Pirelli rubber,

there is positive steering feel

and unyielding grip.

As you would expect from

Mercedes-Benz, the GLC is full

of luxury appointments, it has

the kit to make you feel you

have bought a lot of car, and it is

intensely comfortable to ride in,

even for five occupants.

One of the standout features

is the voice recognition operating

system which takes command

over many of the in-cabin

functions. By opening with “hey

Mercedes’’ you can instruct the

vehicle to do many of the adjustments

you would normally do by

hand. This could well be seen as a

safety device allowing the driver’s

hands to remain on the steering

wheel and to keep concentration

Safety has been at the forefront

operation for as long as I can

remember, and the company’s

entire range has a high ingredient

of built-in-safety features. The

GLC is brimming with all the

electronic functions which are

not far from offering autonomous

operation.

Some of them I could do without,

but the automotive world is

demanding vehicles intervene

on their own accord if collisions

seem imminent and Mercedes-

Benz has answered that call.

The GLC is just another

example of what make

Mercedes-Benz so desirable as

a manufacturer. The company

has recognised that buyers want

plenty of choice and the GLC

coupe and SUV options are

extensive.

Personally, I’d be opting for

the 63 S, just the thought of that

thundering V8 under the bonnet

is enough to make my heart race.
