Mercedes-Benz now offering matte paint finish as an option

Article by Christian A., on August 26, 2010

Mercedes-Benz now offers a matte paint finish, which is known as the MAGNO, as a factory option -- making it the first carmaker to do so. This paint, which has been included in many tuning packages in the past few years, is included in Mercedes-Benz's 2011 designo customization program.

This type of paint is better than regular paint due to its superior scratch resistance and its ability to hide minor dirt and dust. The design program features other special paint finishes and a wide array of tailor-made items for the interior.

In addition, Mercedes has made available some hand-stitched leather finishes and trim elements that have finishes similar to wood, glossy, deep black piano lacquer and natural stone. Consumers may choose from the following new exterior colors: Allanite Grey, Cashmere White, and Platinum.

The 2011 designo options are offered for many Mercedes-Benz vehicles, including the E-Class, S-Class, CL-Class, SL-Class, SLS AMG, M-Class and G-Class.

Marcus Breitschwerdt, President and CEO of Mercedes-Benz Canada, said that "Owning a Mercedes-Benz vehicle is an extension of personal style."

He claims that with the designo program, buyers can choose from a wide variety of exclusive trims, distinctive colors and top quality materials to create a vehicle that reflects their "own discerning tastes and individual preferences."
