The Mercedes-AMG A 35 Hatchback Costs A Lot, But It's Worth Every Penny

The Mercedes-AMG A 35 Hatchback Costs A Lot, But It's Worth Every Penny

In the news this week, we discuss the hoo-haa surrounding the SSC Tuatara's controversial record-breaking 316mph top speed run and Lithuania's successful cash-for-clunkers scheme that saw 8,500 Lithuanians trade-in their old cars for e-Scooters. We also take a look at the EU's tightening emissions laws, how European manufacturers are reacting to it, and how it could change the automotive landscape in the near future. There were a few car launches over the past week, with the global headlines occupied by the curious Mitsuoka Buddy and its 1970s inspired design.

 

Our car review this week takes us inside the Mercedes-AMG A 35 Hatchback Edition 1, as Daniel describes its standout features and compares it against other, far cheaper hot hatchbacks of this kind. The 2020 Renault Megane R.S. is almost RM100,000 cheaper than this and offers just as much excitement, so where exactly is the extra hundred grand in the Mercedes-AMG? Well, for Daniel, it's about the brand, and those fine little details that make a Mercedes, a Mercedes.
