SPORTS HERO

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Drive -

THE MAR­QUE: Mercedes A- Class 250 Sport STATS: 2.0 litre di­rect-in­jec­tion turbo; dou­ble­clutch seven-speed auto trans­mis­sion; 208 hp. ZERO TO HERO: 6.6 sec­onds; 240 km/h top speed. WHY YOU WANT IT: Mercedes says the A- Class has set the bench­mark in the com­pact seg­ment. What they re­ally want to say is this car is a badass com­pact. With seven gears at your dis­posal kept in check with a dou­ble clutch and racy sus­pen­sion, it will eat cor­ners for break­fast and ask for sec­onds later. UL­TI­MATE ROAD TRIP: Tackle Furka Pass, Switzer­land. It’s got tight cor­ners, sweep­ing bends, and climbs that will take this baby to the limit. THE ICON: Nico Ros­berg – be­cause the Ger­man race car driver is not in the ad for no rea­son, now. PRICE ON THE ROAD: RM238,888.
