Mercedes-AMG A35 test drive

The Mercedes-AMG A35 is a fantastic bit of kit. It looks smart, has an excellent interior, and has the performance to take on the best hot hatches.

The Mazda 3 cannot match some rivals for space or powerplants available, but scores with plentiful equipment and attractive, distinctive design, inside and out.
