Mercedes-Benz A-Class A 250 Engineered by AMG
The A 250 Engineered by AMG is the current flagship of this hot selling A-Class range, boasting much more visual impact than any other premium hot hatch in today’s market. This A250 comes fitted with specially-developed chassis elements from the Mercedes performance and race division AMG. Its purpose iwas to shake up the compact hot hatch car market and tempt VW Golf GTI and BMW 1 Series buyers into the Mercedes brand……and it has worked like a charm as you can see with the large numbers of A-Class cars on our roads.
This generation of the A-Class is completely different to the last one, because Mercedes realised that it was missing out on a significant portion of a market it could compete in, but wasn’t. The new A-Class is lower, longer, wider and much sleeker, with a ‘shooting brake’ style silhouette. It aims to go toe-to-toe with the BMW and Volkswagen alternatives.
This A-Class is a well-rounded package offering a good spread of attributes. The relatively powerful petrol engine in this model offers ample performance for the road.
Aside from red styling accents inside and out, other details present on the Engineered by AMG model include sports seats with more lateral support, special alloy wheels and a stunning new grill design taken directly from a previously-unveiled Mercedes concept car. It’s a muscular-looking car with a good range of engines, although most offer too little performance.
The A-Class, especially in Engineered by AMG trim, is much more visually adventurous than the competition. With solid handling from a stable chassis, high interior materials quality, a range of efficient, low-emission diesel engines and competitive prices, it has everything it needs to compete for and win sales in a tightly-fought marketplace. In general the engines could use more power, but the A-Class is convincing enough just as it is. Test drive one soon to realize its and your on road performance.
