Luxury Sedan Car Of The Year – Mercedes-Benz A250 4MATIC AMG Line

The Mercedes-Benz A250 4MATIC AMG Line gets our pick for luxury sedan of the year.

The Luxury Sedan category is sadly one that is slowly losing its relevance in the Malaysian automotive scene. Once a hotly contested category with plenty of executive sedan options, the last 12 months has been utterly silent save for the facelifted range of A-Class sedan models. Having driven most of them, we have to say the Mercedes-Benz A250 4MATIC AMG Line was the most appealing of the bunch.

Mercedes-Benz A250

Yes, there are electric vehicles that can deliver more power at a similar price point, but the A250 with its all-wheel drive system feels more involved and sportscar-like that any of its battery powered rivals. The sedan proportions on the A-Class are still solid and the new enhancements only increase the appeal of this car as an alternative to the C-Class, which has grown in size, price and ambition in this generation.

About VOTY 2024

The Allianz DSF.my Vehicle Of The Year (VOTY) Award ceremony is the first and only vehicle award event in Malaysia that does not hand out paid awards, nor does it charge winners or participating brands any fee whatsoever. Winners are allowed to use the VOTY event logo free of charge in all marketing materials. Event attendees are not even charged for their seat at the award presentation. All car manufacturers that operate in Malaysia are invited to participate free of charge. All they have to do is let our judges test drive their nominated vehicles.

The nominated vehicles must have been launched in Malaysia in the last 12 months and cannot be a localised minor facelift (body-kits, stickers, wheel upgrades, etc). All judging is independent and is put down to a vote before the winners are selected. Car manufacturers are not informed if they are winning or not before the event.

The judges for VOTY 2024 are Daniel Sherman Fernandez and Subhash Nair of dsf.my, Ross Hadi of gohedgostan.com and Joshua Chin of automacha.com.
