2019 Mercedes-Benz A250 performance review


The A250 is a premium hatch that delivers an amazing day to day driving experince. It sets the benchmark with its classy interior, the combination of cutting-edge technology – MBUX infotainment, twin 10.25-inch digital displays, a wide array of active safety aids – with generally premium materials.
It builds on this by offering a much more persuasive mechanical package. The A200’s underwhelming 1.4-litre turbo engine is replaced by a larger 2.0-litre unit delivering a handy 165kW/350Nm for a hot hatch-like claimed 0-100km/h time of 6.2sec.
Furthermore, the optional multi-link rear suspension that transforms the A200’s ride and handling is standard on the A250, as is traction-enhancing all-wheel drive. That all this is offered for a mere $2300 premium makes choosing between the two a no-brainer in favour of the A250.
A great accessory upgrade to tick is the the Seat Comfort Package (heated electric front seats with memory function) and the AMG Exclusive Package, which in addition to those dampers adds ambient lighting, ventilated front seats, two-tone leather upholstery and dual-zone climate control.
