Iíve a B Class and I agree about the Hold and also about inadvertently pi$$ing off people behind you in the dark -youíd have thought the Auto-boffins could have sorted that out. I also like the fact that when you open the door the handbrake comes on, although Iíve not tried it at speed.
What I donít understand is what/any advantage there is in having a keyless push start ignition. Iíve never locked myself out of the car ever in 55 years or so and I canít see any other benefit.
Anyone know better ?
