A Small Benz With A Napoleon Complex

This week, with component factories staying closed, assembly lines grinding to a halt, and several key motor shows cancelled, we take a look at the overall impact of COVID-19 on the global car industry. We also discuss the steep decline of the once-popular compact MPVs against the rising popularity of the crossover. For our review, Ariff gives his take on the Mercedes-AMG A 35 4MATIC Saloon - a sporty 4-door Mercedes saloon designed to appeal to a more youthful and excitable generation of buyers.
