A picture is worth a thousand words and this car just gives you the impression that innovation is just beginning ! Mercedes Benz Scrapped out their older design of the previous A class and built an amazing masterpiece. A car I loved driving and really enjoyed ! Never felt like running errands was boring or hectic and I can go on and on and drive a full day without getting bored!
For its small compact size, its got a 1.9 Litre 4 Cylinder Turbo charged engine that gives out 211 BHP and does 0-100 Km/h in 6.6 Seconds. Will make you bend the speed limit rules (if you know what I mean)
With the A250 the weight to power ratio is just about right, you don’t feel its too much or too little and you always get a grin on your face when the turbo kicks in. It was so enjoyable to drive!
The front end and grille is a unique design for the A250 and is futuristic in nature, at night the LEDs look awesome. The red accent…(out of words).
When returning to my car after driving a Mercedes you tend to miss the Bi-Xenon headlamps, there is a difference in the quality of light produced by the headlamps and its quite impressive.
It looks good from every angle.
With regards to the interior, the carbon fiber interior speaks to you and the red stitching , red seat belts and red accents make you feel you’re in a small supercar. I found the sound system good and shape of the steering wheel also cool.
Simple but you can see attention at every detail and you feel like everything is right! The heads up display seems like it was forgotten and put in later, but it grows on you! i wonder when they will be implementing touch screens, it will make it even more enjoyable to use!
The A250 Sport comes with AMG styling, Rims and red stitching and red accents, it was designed by the AMG team!
The overall size was compact, and made driving short and long distances enjoyable, it looked smaller in my parking lot, compared to my FJ cruiser. The only downside of this car is the small trunk area (due to the spare tyre).
The back seats fit two adults comfortably, it was also easy to put my children in the back and put their seatbelts on.
The Dual Exhausts and the red accents make it look that much sexier!
Small and photogenic!
End of the line? Would I recommend it ? hell ya! Although not as quiet as the C250 Coupe or C250, it was so fun to drive, it’s really a drivers car, I kept the window open a little just so i can hear the blow off valve from the turbo hehe. If I can buy a spare car to my Fj cruiser I wouldn’t hesitate, I might consider the A45 which is a completely different animal, but for daily driving its an enjoyable ride, very comfortable and safe to drive and is a completely different experience to other cars. If you’re looking for a small hatchback I would definitely recommend the A250, starts from around 11,000 KWD, i’d recommend you go and get it for a test drive! If you decide to buy it, go for the Panoramic roof, it will make it a lot more enjoyable since its like taking the roof off the car as it spans half of the roof! BTW the AC is really cool and I compare the AC to a Toyota FJ cruiser, and it does keep the car pretty cold inside had to turn it down a couple of times.
