Introducing The New Mercedes Benz S Class
Although earlier history from 1886 offers hints of what was to come, the Mercedes Benz brand as we know it today was established in 1926 and has since built a reputation as one of the most prestigious car manufacturers in the world.

A Prestige GT Surprise from Kia
Kia would normally be described as a mainstream brand. They are great cars but not, you would think, especially premium. In the case of the new Kia Stinger GT, this is very much not so. Here at MHH International we drove the previous version and it is terrific in terms of both quality, comfort and performance (see images). The new model promises to really up the game.
We Go The Extra Mile: Tropicalising Your Car.
Understanding our customers’ needs is vital to our customer’s happiness. Many clients used to worry about problems relating to diesel engine cars from the UK because the Euro 5 and Euro 6 engines come with extra emissions filters. This works well for European diesel, but in Africa the diesel is different. This can cause issues such as clogged Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) and sooty deposits in the manifold. Prevention is often better (and cheaper) than a cure. At MHH we offer tropicalisation to our clients buying diesel cars. This is done in the UK prior to shipment and is a very good way to prepare your car for its new life in Africa. Contact our experienced team today to get you free quote to import your next car.
GLE is the new name given to the ever popular ML. Mercedes changed the name for the 2016 model year giving it a fresh appeal. This car has the 2.1L turbo diesel which benefits from the lower excise duty on import and by the time the DPF is removed (tropicalised), the car has almost the same power as the 3.0L TD engine. We highly recommend this car as it offers style, prestige and good off road capability at a great price.
There’s a lot more to importing than buying a car.  It’s our mission to make importing easy.

Have Confidence In Buying Cars Online
Now that, here in the UK at least, our masked nation is slowly and hesitantly returning to a form of normality, it is becoming clear that we are changing our buying habits. Shopping online has matured and now most people globally are making purchases with confidence via their computers. The same is true when it comes to buying cars. Although in many locations around the world car dealerships are beginning to re-open their doors with new ways to accommodate customers safely, sales of new and used vehicles have confirmed a tide of change for the future of car retailing across the world. In the UK, more than half of those asked acknowledged that they would continue to do the bulk of their car buying online from now on. In Spain, and Germany, for example, that number is slightly lower, yet rising.

Winter 1914, and a certain Alfieri Maserati founded the company that continues to bear his name one hundred and six years later.

Not that long ago, the idea that luxury or super car makers would build sport utility vehicles (SUV) as part of their range was met with horror. There was talk from purists that the exclusive brands would be selling out to meet popular trends. Well, they all did it, or are doing it, anyway and that includes the famous British badge of Bentley. Enter the Bentayga. First introduced in 2016, the Bentayga styling was not entirely lauded by fans, but that hasn't stopped it becoming the biggest seller among its direct competitors. Over time some 20,000 have been sold. It has been a stunning success for Bentley and in 2019 accounted for forty-five per cent of the company’s global sales. Now a new model has just been introduced and this time it looks fabulous. The luxury SUV has received a major facelift with a new exterior design plus the very latest onboard technology and an even more cosseting cabin. This new Bentayga is significantly revised both inside and out. Combining the abilities of a performance grand tourer, a luxury limousine, a spacious family car and an off-roader, this latest Bentley really can do it all. The makers insist that no other car can offer the breadth of ability to rival the Bentayga.

How Do I Get The VAT Back On a Car Imported From The UK?
STOCK FINANCE SERVICES How Do I Get The VAT Back On a Car Imported From The UK? People buying cars from the UK who wish to export them beyond the EU need to know how this reclaim process actually works. Not all UK dealers are set up to do this and some will ask you to cover the VAT until it has been returned from the UK Tax office. But you can buy your car without having to pay for the VAT at all. This article will help you to understand the options available to you and the best way for you to buy your car tax free from the UK stress free. Many people we have met over the years have bought cars from the UK and never recovered the VAT. Perhaps because they didn’t know how to or the advice they had been given wasn’t very accurate, or the people who promised to reclaim it for them didn’t deliver on their promise and so it was never approved by the UK Tax office. This is always disappointing to hear and we hope this article will help to stop these issues from happening.
Are Hybrid Cars The Answer?
Many drivers are not yet turned on in an automotive sense by the idea of electric cars. For some, the technology is not trusted, especially those who drive longer distances, others think the EV infrastructure is not yet ready for a mainstream influx of electric-only vehicles on our roads. Further, for many, it is simply not a practical choice. Certainly EV technology is progressing quickly and, especially for urban drivers, is the solution for cleaner greener motoring. Fortunately there is a solution for those who would like better economy and lower emissions but who are not yet ready for the full electric experience: Hybrids.
