    CarExpert's Take

    Paul Maric
    Founder
    Paul Maric drove this car and these were their findings:
    Hits
    • Stupidly quick in a straight line and through corners
    • Interior presentation is second to none in this segment
    • Now with a five year warranty
    Misses
    • Big step up in price over the outgoing AMG A45
    • High levels of road noise transmitted into the cabin
    • Idle noise could be more AMG
