This Mercedes A180 with AMG pack is an attractive and sporty looking hatch with sculptured lines and scallops along the sides.
The AMG seats, red stitching and carbon-fibre on the dash continue the theme of sportiness on the inside, and the materials are sturdy and give a premium feel. The checkered background on the speedometer and rev counter complete the sporty feeling.
Acceleration is swift but not dramatic and if you are driving responsibly, it will return good fuel consumption figures. It can be so exciting; when it is set up right, it can give us a real thrill when we’re driving. This is thanks to the Racechip GTS state-of-the-art electronic tuning which has been fitted to this vehicle.
The A-Class is a safe car, though. It got a five-star crash-test rating from Euro NCAP in 2012, and is available with active safety systems to help avoid collisions.
