      Just remember you’re payment exec-segment prices for a B segment car, and that B-segment car is built to make money on its base model. These are extortionate cars but people are lapping them up! It’s these over-arching ‘pinnacle’ models in the range are there to sell the lower ones and also to bump their prices up.
      On top of that the number of driving modes means it’s basically digital management of the car literally between corners, can’t the engineers just design a passive system that actually works? Oh no wait, it’s the digital system they plug in to the basic models to make them seem developed for the price they are selling them at...

      Should of had 325-335hpninstead of 302.
      If it really wants to beat contenders like the golf r (330hp in clubsport trim) , audi s3 (305hp) , megane rs ( 300hp)
      Focus rs ( 350 hp) , bmw m240i ( 328hp) ....

      Is it normal that you can see the painted metal on the inside of the door. Or is that just more cost saving by Mercedes?

      Ford Focus RS has 50 more hp and torque plus it has 6 speed manual for lots of fun and it is faster than A35. It is probably lot more fun and faster than A35. However I choose A35. Technology and premium feeling dominates Ford Focus.
