The A35 is an understated yet handsome car that delivers just the right amount of power.

This car is for you if you like fast gear change, impressive pick up speed and good FC.

Initially wanted to get a q3 sportback 1.4 but after test driving it the gearbox was hesitant and every gear change felt like a so slow.

Happen to chance upon this car and when i test drove it , i was amazed at how well the gearbox shifts and although only 128hp it felt alot more than that. Interior was a dream and at first i had my reservations about the gear level beside the steering wheel.. It actualy was the best thing ever! Ease of changing from P, to D ro Reverse.

Never regretted this car !

What I like
Interior design , ambient lights , aircon vents, mbux
fast gear change , powerful small engine , electric seats
good fc. 1 full tank 500km.

What I do not like
No blind spot monitoring
Kids bugging me to change different ambient lighting all the time.
handling is ok but not as superior as bmw, Vw. ( but who cares i'm ferrying kids)

I've recently switched to a Merc A class sedan, formally driving jap/korean cars for the last 10 years. To be honest the A class sedan is an understated model compared to the Audi A3 and BM 2 series in the same segment. The interior with its MBUX system is second to none, and the cabin feels futuristic and comfortable. The space and comfort level is great a young family like mine with 2 kids. Even with a baby car seat, the space at the back is decent and boot as well.

Overall driving experience is smooth, esp on highways. The exterior looks are beautiful and u might mistake it for a C class from certain angles. The A class sedan should be a compelling option for those want a Merc at a good price entry point!

What I like
-MBUX Cabin and Entertainment System
-Luxurious Cabin and Ambient lighting
-Good passenger and boot space
-1.3L turbocharged engine feels punchy
-Exterior looks premium and in line with the CLA/C Class models

What I do not like
-Average fuel consumption at 13-14km/l
-Pickup is slower but drives well on highways

Just received my A180 Saloon AMG Line in Apr 21. Been driving it for 1 month plus. I have to say, this is really one pretty car! I have been getting stares and compliments for this car. The AMG line bodykit really accentuate the lines of this car and make it so striking with a hint of aggressive sportiness.

If one is wowed by the exterior, then they will be double wowed by the interior. Full digital dashboard, electric Danamica sport seats, 64-colour ambient lightings and the piece de resistance, the MBUX system!

The A Class now set the design language for all new Mercedes cars (previously its the S Class) and it is also the first to be equipped with the latest MBUX technology. Take a look at the new C, E, CLS & S Class. All of them really kind of look like the A Class.

So with the A Class, you get the latest Mercedes design and technology at the entry level range pricing! Awesome!

What I like
Everything from the exterior looks to the interior! Especially the MBUX system and the 'Hey Mercedes!' voice command function!

What I do not like
Fuel consumption is far from the stated 16km/L. I have been getting close to 11-12km/L.

No keyless entry (only Push Start) and no rear aircon vents.

I would say the only selling point would be the styling of the car and also the impressive interior. Ambient Lighting, MBUX System, Memory Seats. The engine is also punchy at the mid range making driving a breeze for the A200 series. However sluggish during pickup.

What I like
- Ambient Lighting
- Small Engine = Cheaper Road Tax
- Exterior Styling
- Memory Seats
- MBUX

What I do not like
- Have been constantly in and out of the workshop due to many issues despite being very new car with less than 5000km mileage in a year
- Fuel Consumption far from paper specs. a Reality of 12km/ litre for 90% Highway driving.
- Flimpsy handling
- Hankook Tyres as a standard
