The 2015 Mercedes-Benz A 250 Is A Stylish Alternative To The Golf GTI

In the show this week, we take a look at the limited-edition Proton X70 SE, discuss the lockdown woes in the local automotive industry, and make a case for the standardisation of our numberplates. In Part 2, we discuss Ford trademarking the historical 'Skyline' nameplate in the US, before dissecting Mercedes-Benz's big plans in their latest Strategy Update.

Our Used Car Buyer's Guide this week looks at the 2015 Mercedes-Benz A 250 Sport as a considerable alternative to the textbook hot-hatch, Volkswagen Golf GTI. With more than enough power, a playful driving character, a respectable reliability record, and the three-point star proudly on display at the front, it's a used car that many can still consider as an upgrade.
