Need help buying your next car? Click and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!
It’s a sad day here at carwow HQ, as Mat’s had to say goodbye to his AMG G63...
But you won’t hear us complaining too much, as he’s replaced it with an all-new AMG A45 S! It's the most powerful hatchback EVER created, with an incredible 2-litre 4 cylinder engine under the bonnet that can produce a spectacular 421hp!
Sure it’s not got the same palatial interior as you’ll find in the G63, but with a whole load of ultra-modern tech crammed inside, we’re sure Mat won’t mind there being a little less space.
However, one thing he may not be so fond of is the price - with this little pocket rocket coming in at £57,000! So will he think it’s worth it? You’d better sit back for this all-new review to find out!

  • Good review, I like this car, better looking than the previous model. I agree with your criticisms, refreshing for a reviewer to be honest about what he doesn't like, rather than have someone telling you it's the greatest car ever made.

  • It’s not necessarily FAKE EXHAUST NOISE, a microphone picks up the actual exhaust sound from the out side of the vehicle and pumps it into the interior . They do this because of Europe’s regulation to make cars quieter in the inside from 74 decibels to 68 decibels by 2026

  • Test drove this car, but its way overpriced for what you are getting. Cheap interior(Car paint showing inside, cheap plastics), and the exhaust note is just underwhelming. Approaching GLC63,C63 price levels.

  • Why don't you include more of your girlfriend in your videos? She brings it to a point, she has such a gorgeous smile and brings something extra, what other ILworld car reviews don't have. A female version of the comments will always be different and stress points that we men do need. When I bought my latest motorbike (more CV than kg) I also asked the opinion of two women. I was so right to listen to them ....

  • I'm considering purchasing this vehicle in Australia. It's much more than what you in the UK pay for it. Here it is over $85,000.00. Some of the features that you mentioned are standard here in Australia and, the wireless phone charge here is ... wireless. Thanks for the review, it helps me to make my final decision. Here is a MERCEDES BENZ advert in Australia for you ... showing the different features. But mines will be an AMG, like yours!

  • I made the same mistake I bought the A class premium thinking it had the driver assistance package. I had already test drove one , got this in middle of this bloody virus so didn’t really get chance to do a good test drive . Mercedes seem to have more options you don’t know what the hell your getting !! My fault i know 🙁

  • Great video. Concerning the exhaust noise you're probably dealing with a speaker under the car's bonnet. Saying this because I saw it in a Golf R. They're amplifying the noises because they know it sounds not how you'd want it. Other option is that the stereo speakers make a broom broom sound when you press the pedal.

  • While this is a belter of a hot hatch I’m Not a fan of the Merc A class. The interior feels cheap compared to a BMW and the drive isn’t as involving as in the BMW. This merc is nicer than the new Audi A3 though. My money would go on the M2!

  • Hey, just got the A45s, but I actually prefer the old a45. Something about actual analogue Speedo rather than digital. Plus I find that whilst the new A45s has significantly improved the acceleration lag I found in comfort mode which the old A45 had (where I’d put my foot down and it took the car a few seconds to kick in)... I don’t want to drive it in comfort mode, I want to drive in sport +, and in manual... and in manual, I find the A45s a bit laggy in shift changes. And I can’t tell you how sad I was about the sound down grade with the exhaust system. With the improved comfort mode, and quiet sound engine, and terrible fuel economy of the new A45s, I almost wish I had bought a Tesla! All the fun bits of the A45 were in the old model... AND I don’t rate the burmeister sound system, I think the Harmon kardon system in the old A45 a LOT more punchier, with great surround and a nice deep base. This just doesn’t compare. What do you think? Ps, I like your show, but I notice you don’t review the sound systems in them... why is that? I think audio is important, and good speakers are essential in any car.

  • It’s an awesome car, I’ve had one for a few months, the power is useable and it damn well holds the road, it’s an all rounder. I’ve honestly had more fun in this than super cars such as Ferrari’s etc and super saloons and tourings such as M5, RS6 and M3’s.

You should be allowed to have as much fun and annoy as many people as you want to without having to think of others. An enjoyable video though.

  • You should include your girlfriend Jo in drag races, she seems to be a good driver, and probably likes cars, I bet with a little bit of practice she would start beating you very quickly. It would be a fun and interesting video to watch. Include Yanni and his wife as well, it's double the fun. Food for thought. It's a great car, by the way. Godspeed.
