How often can I say that Mercedes-Benz wanted to loan me a Valente for the week to test drive and review! Pretty lucky indeed! The Nuffnang sponsored post coincided with Easter, so of course we loaded up our ride and headed down to our holiday house on the gorgeous Mornington Peninsula!
Michael handing me the keys at the South Melbourne dealership. The staff were all very welcoming and offered me an espresso in the comfy lounge on arrival. Thanks for the tour of the huge multi-leveled showroom!
My ride! Mercedes-Benz Valente was awarded People Mover of the Year 2012 + 2013
This beauty came with dual sunroofs, one in the front and a mega double window in the back
Barry the Car Seat Fitter, installing Cherry and Tiger’s seats. This car would be perfect for a family of two of more kids!
Fully loaded in the boot but still plenty of room inside!
We even packed our cat!
Cherry called the Valente The Party Bus! It’s important to our family that our car is not only spacious, but very safe. The Valente has a 5 Star ANCAP rating
My husband has driven similar vehicles in the past and he reckons this one doesn’t have body roll and drives more like a large car
Was excited to find an inbuilt iPhone dock to crank some tunes for our trip
Love the Louise Paramor sculpture on Peninsula Link. Cherry calls it the Lego Tower!
It wasn’t long until they were both fast asleep
We arrived at Port Phillip Estate, one of the most beautiful wineries on the Mornington Peninsula.
Sliding doors on both sides made it really easy to get in and out
Arriving in style! Feeling just like celebrities with tinted windows 😉
The view from here was spectacular!
Look Cherry, you can see the sea!
It was fun getting around with friends in The Party Bus. No need to take two cars and only one designated driver! Buckle up kids – let’s ride!
Not looking forward to handing the Valente back but on Monday…
What a fabulous way to cruise around in style! Thanks so much for the opportunity!
