New Year’s Resolutions for 2021

Are you making any New Year’s Resolutions this January? After the challenging year 2020 has been, most of us will be looking forward to a fresh start. Research shows that less than 25% of people will give up their resolutions within the first 30 days of the New Year, and that the most successful goals are those that are specific and implemented with a clear plan on how to achieve them.

The most popular resolutions are those that come up year after year. We’ve put together our answers to six of the most popular New Year’s Resolutions and how Mercedes-Benz South West may be able to help.

Get organized

The cutting-edge technology of MBUX is the perfect companion to keep you organised. Office Assistance programs such as send-to-car navigation allows you to pre-load your navigation from your phone, which means no time wasted plugging in postcodes. Live traffic updates also help to keep you moving, adapting to make sure that you arrive on time, every time.

The voice controlled assistant also helps you to keep you productive on the road, if you need to call the office or a client you can simply say ‘Hey Mercedes, Call the Office’ and your car will connect you!

Learn a new skill or hobby

Car Bike RackIf you want to take up a new hobby in 2021, then your Mercedes-Benz can get you there. Boot capacity in our vehicles allows you to carry whatever equipment you made need with ease. Our SUV range in particular offers incredible safe spacing facility. The brand new GLS, released in 2020, will offer flexible configuration allowing for seven seats, or a potential 2,400 litres of boot space when the second and third passenger rows are lowered.

There is also a range of exclusive Mercedes-Benz accessories which can help you to take on a new hobby this year. Roof and bike racks are both available to pack up bicycles, surf boards or other water sports equipment easily.

Save more money

Managing money is a popular New Year’s Resolution as people try to get more focused for a fresh start. An easy way to save money is to manage your expenditure. A Mercedes-Benz South West Service Plan can help you do just that. Rather than waiting for your Service for one large payment, take advantage of an Mercedes-Benz South West Service Plan to manage your servicing costs into monthly low payments throughout the year. A Mercedes-Benz Service Plan is the best way to maintain your vehicle to Mercedes-Benz standards and will help to avoid wear-and-tear costs longer term.

In addition to the convenience and reassurance it offers, a Mercedes-Benz South West Service Plan also goes above and beyond comparable products in the marketplace by offering a host of additional benefits – most of them complimentary – for the duration of the contract:

  • Free-of-charge oil top-ups
  • Free-of-charge Software Upgrades

Quit smoking

EQReducing your emissions of unnatural chemicals is always a great resolution. Another way to ‘quit smoking’ is to reduce your vehicle emissions. The electric future is closer than ever to becoming a reality and the Mercedes-Benz all-electric and plug-in-hybrid EQ Power range is dedicated to creating environmentally friendly options across our range.

Our all-electric vehicles will cut your emissions by 100%, and our plug-in-hybrids will also help to lower your environmental impact, currently we have some offers on selected plug-in-hybrids including a free BP Chargemaster wall box worth £499*. Plug-in-hybrid vehicles also have lower tax costs than a combustion engine so can be a great option for company cars. Learn more about our business offers here.

Travel more

With borders closed across the globe in 2020, many of us had our travel plans cancelled. The future of travel is still uncertain as we head into the new year, but with the borders closed, one thing we can try to do in 2021 is explore more of the UK, read our guide on South West Winter Staycations here.

Owning a Mercedes-Benz is also the perfect excuse to travel a bit more and go on UK road trips. Smart navigation makes travel stress-free and easy and our vehicles are all designed for impeccable comfort, climate control, amazing sound systems and easily adjustable seats for your convenience.
