For some, a car just needs to get you from A to B comfortably and safely to satisfy your driving needs. For others, it’s those little (and big!) luxuries like heated seats, voice command technology, and keyless access that drive your decision on what car will best suit your lifestyle.
No matter how often or for how long you plan to drive your car most days, your ride deserves to be that extra bit special. Included in our latest Mater Prize Home lottery No. 305 is a BMW 330i M Sport (valued at $99,812) PLUS a Mercedes-Benz AMG GLC (valued at $193,449) to help all your driving be a thing of style, luxury and pure enjoyment.
While you don’t have to choose one or the other permanently, you may have a hard time deciding which prestigious vehicle to take out on a daily basis. According to what your plans are for the day, here’s how to make your decision of which car to drive easier.
You’re more likely to spend your down time swinging a golf club or walking your local neighbourhood than being cooped up in the car more than you need to. But that doesn’t mean you don’t appreciate a luxurious ride on those short occasions that you do need to get around town. The BMW 330i M Sport is a beautiful car to drive daily. Especially with its Automate My Habits feature. You can set the car to suit your specific preferences, like automatically opening your driver window in certain circumstance—such as at a drive through or upon entry into a carpark. You can also program your seat ventilation to turn on when you hop in the car to cool off on a hot day. Worried about hitting a traffic jam en route? Your BMW can inform you of your vehicle status, expected traffic, and even let you know how many parking spaces are at your destination! Additionally, the BMW 330i M Sport’s Digital Key feature allows you to use your smartphone as your key for easy hands-free access when you’re out and about with a handful of groceries.
If you work in Brisbane or up or down the Queensland coast but have the lovely honour of calling Bribie Island home, you’ll be in your car for a fair amount every weekday. So you’ll want to make sure your comfort needs are catered to during your weekly commute. In the Mercedes-Benz AMG GLC, the wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto along with augmented reality tech will come in handy for over-the-air updates on traffic, online music streaming, and the ability to give your car hands-free command just by saying “Hey Mercedes”.
You live for life on the road, exploring new places and venturing far and wide. When long trips are on the agenda, you want to be extra comfortable inside your car. In your BMW 330i M Sport, the whole family will love the spacious interior in the front and back. For the kids, there’s good bottle storage, knee-level air vents and climate controls to keep everyone cool and happy, and two USB and one 12v outlet if you need to resort to digital babysitting to make the trip go more smoothly! While the family’s comfort is important, so too is your car’s driving capabilities during extended distances. The BMW 330i M Sport has a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine with an eight-speed automatic that can be switched from Comfort to Sport to give you more power on the road when you need (or want!) it.
You love the thrill of being in the great outdoors and exploring the best of Mother Nature all around your Bribie Island prize home. The Mercedes-Benz AMG GLC is a medium SUV with style and space to make your light off-road adventures fun and plush. Powered by Mercedes’ hallmark AMG Driving Performance the performance-oriented all-wheel drive system delivers impressive acceleration, enhanced dynamic handling, and outstanding lateral dynamics. Internally, the option to set personal profiles, predictive functions and a WiFi hotspot are a nice touch, too.
