The toll highway saves hours on a way to St. Petersburg


It is checked for Mercedes-Benz of the X-class of the Photo: I Admit to BFM.ru, I never in the life was a pikaper. So Mercedes-Benz of the X-class for me is a new experience in everything, except the name of the brand, certainly. And on this the car, new to me, I went to the St. Petersburg Economic Forum. All last forums the road to St. Petersburg and back to me seemed not a really pleasant element — eternal building, one strip, traffic jams on two, and even three hours. And already about potholes it was possible to draw the separate card at all. But every year, with everyone new, let was also late the open section of the toll high-speed road the way passes much more comfortably. Expensively — yes, but we will talk about it later. At the moment there were only two unopened sections of the 700-kilometer route, but already now saving of time in comparison with historical Leningradka makes three hours. Without speaking about the saved nerves in a stopper — it is invaluable. And on the toll highway it is possible to experiment with the modes of Mercedes-Benz of the X-class. I transfer the selector of settings from "comfort" to "sport" — and the car proves to be already powerful high-speed bullet, overtaking a dense steam of cars. The wheel accurately and quickly reacts to the slightest turns and even weighing freight of 400 kilograms in a luggage carrier does not frighten by any drifts of a back axis even on the road, wet from a rain. But on the second site — a detour of Solnechnogorsk — neighbors in the road less, it is also already possible to include quietly a cruise control, having set it the resolved limits and enjoying beauty of the woods situated near Moscow. To the Tver off-roadosnovnya of a stopper behind, but near Tver it is necessary to move down on let and M10 repaired, but already more densely hammered. Cameras and trucks which prefer to reach St. Petersburg on the good old Leningradka prevent to accelerate. Bothered. I turn on the first country road. No, I will not knead dirt, these experiments of automobile colleagues in network enough — I want to check comfort of driving of Mercedes-Benz of the X-class with freight on such off road terrain. On the way sawmill, behind which excellent potholes and hills. I pass to the lowering transfer and I try to get on one of these hills. The cowl went up, and I, having slightly turned gray, I understand that I do not see ahead the road on centimeter. And here, remembering a set of options, I include the panoramic review of cameras — and voila... before me on the seven-inch screen everything that is hidden under a front bumper and a side threshold. There is enough stock in 222 millimeters under the bottom to overcome everything without any difficulties. Bravo! Real Mercedes-Benz and real SUV. But it is time on the route, and now a limit of 130 kilometers per hour again. Seats of Mercedes-Benz of the X-class though are not made superanatomic and do not contain functions of blowing and massage, but with support of a back are quite comfortable even for long driving. In any case, my back did not ache following the results of a trip, and with included in a cruise control it was possible also legs at a speed to knead.
