sgCarMart – Mercedes-Benz. Hot hatch. These terms could not have been more disparate.
The Stuttgart carmaker has held sovereign in many segments. The C-Class sedan is one of the leading sellers in Singapore and equally popular is the E-Class, which has long been a favourite of local motorists.
But never has the marque been affiliated with cunning and deceivingly fast little shoe boxes.
The latest A-Class still lies at the bottom of the hierarchy. But the new car feels more upbeat, shying away from the 'budget' image of the earlier generations.
The term 'Sport' may have been heavily utilised by various carmakers, and more often than not a work of their marketing departments. Mercedes, however, has taken the word seriously in the making of the A250 Sport.
Less the A45 variant from the hot works of AMG, this A250 Sport is, perhaps, the next best thing in line.
Hot hatch lovers - count your blessings, as things are about to change.
