    Mercedes A25 (Update: A45) AMG

    hmmmmmmmm......am now thinking of the A25 AMG for my girlfriend instead of the Evoque. I simply think it will be the better car. The Evoque is a looker and a girly car for sure but I guess the AMG is a wiser choice.

    Any thoughts ?

    Re: Mercedes A25 AMG

    Will you ever drive your girlfriend's car? IF not then Evoque is ok, but if you at times will take that car out, then the A25, you will enjoy driving it more. :)


    Re: Mercedes A25 AMG

    i am getting the car for her. so it is not of importance if i will drive it or not and i think i will only drive it when she asks me to.

    however, the A25 is a good looking car and certainly better engineered that the evoque. i do not regard range rovers as well engineered cars since my brother has one and i think it is mediocre at best.

    the A25 being i the same category as the evoque it might just simply be the better package.

    she does not need an SUV, just a trendy funky car. (it's her first car), so in that sense, both are a good option.

    Re: Mercedes A25 AMG

    Get the A25, way better package + quality + resale.

    The Evoque really doesn't touch me... way too over designed. It'll become the hairdresser and interior designer car. They never stand the test of time.

    The Benz will be a perfect daily, fun car to drive, great first car actually for driving & parking etc kiss


    Re: Mercedes A25 AMG

    yup am very much leaning towards the A25 now.

    Any idea when it will be released onto the market ?

    I just e.mailed my merc dealer. I should have all info on it within the next days.

    Re: Mercedes A25 AMG

    I like the evoque, but I'd choose the A25 over it as well.


    Re: Mercedes A25 AMG

    A25 all the way. kiss

    Also fits you much better.

    Re: Mercedes A25 AMG

    After the first initial ' woaw' factor for the Evoque, I already grew tired of the 'transformer styling' . I would go for the A25.

    Exactly my thoughts. Go for the A 25. I even consider it as a third car for my wife.

    Same here...dealer offered best deal possible Smiley, so I may go for this one instead of the Porsche Macan.  My wife isn't too much into Mercedes but she started to like the C63 Coupe a lot, so maybe... Smiley

    Only of course if the A25 AMG gets AWD...

    New A-class starts in summer, I suppose the new A25 AMG around end of the year or sometimes next year.

    You must be in their target market. The new A class will appeal to different clientele the previous two.

    A girl a few years ago was looking to buy a small car. She liked the A class but said to me "I like it but I guess I must become a mother before I buy such a car".Smiley

    Let me guess: Birthday? Smiley Smiley

    I just talked to my dealer, the A25 AMG has the green light and it will be available but not very likely with the introduction of the A-class is summer. One can only speculate when it is going to be available... My dealer actually thinks not before 2013. Smiley

    Fine for you, Enmanuel and all others some pics while I pick for my departure to Madrid tomorrow morning Smiley

    The case says "After opening you'll heart beats faster" and it's a sleeve sort of like a DVD. Then you open it, the booklet is looking at you along with a nice letter. Underneath you find wrapped in picture protected vinyl 5 beautiful sketches and images on thick high quality poster paper in full A4 size! Just a great way to advertise Smiley

    And some close ups of the sketches

    And then there's the brochure itself which gives no  big details just yet apart from stating this is before the official ads will run etc...

    That's all, i'm off to Madrid Smiley


    Re: Mercedes A25 AMG

    The A25 is for sure the better car. I was driving the Evoque while our Range Rover Sport was on Service and I was deeply disappointed! The Mercedes Build is for sure a level higher and the the A25 seems to turn out as an amazing looking car (even so this concept shot looks better as catalog pictures above. But maybe a 2-door is the better choice look wise for such a tiny car?).


    Re: Mercedes A25 AMG

    Concept A at the IAA this year was probably my favorite car. To see this new A-class with such close resemblance is very cool!


    Re: Mercedes A25 AMG

    yup, birthday

    the c63 facelift sedan was released 3 months after the normal c-class release.

    however, the A class is a totally new car so it might be a longer wait.

    my dealer is already on it. will post info as soon as received...

    ...many thanks for your efforts to post the picsSmileySmiley
    Cool pics and cool sofa. :-)
    At this point I'm almost in.
    The A25 seems to be a must if one is looking for a great urban driver.

    Kein Problem kiss I am in Munich tomorrow btw. Stop-over there to Madrid.

    I would really consider the 2-door A when it comes out!

    cheers wink


    Re: Mercedes A25 AMG

    funny how mercedes is tempting so many of us porschephiles with their products lately.

    mercedes are clearly onto something that audi and bmw are somehow missing....

    Re: Mercedes A25 AMG

    I've always been a Mercedes guy. Their 80s design and unbeaten reliability and tankness are brilliant. The w123 series is on my bucket list.

    Despite driving yet another BMW for the time, I know i will run a Benz daily and the Porsche for fun. E500 + 911 sounds great smiley (Keeping dreaming)

    Mercedes is coming back as of lately, i like where they are going. Now they announced that the next E-class will go back to the 80s robustness roots, i am more than excited for what they will show us with that! The GLK has been really tempting for me and now the new A is very cool also. C coupe is cool, new B is very hip also. Keep it up MB!

    Since all future AMG models are supposed to get AWD, I think they really are going to hurt Porsche and other manufacturers. Especially since the Mercedes models are cheaper and...the rebates right now are insane. Smiley
