2019 has only just kicked off and the Mercedez Benz A class is already a winner. The A-Class has won 2 awards from Company Car Today who awarded the A-class ‘Car of the Year’ and ‘Premium Lower Medium Car of the Year’. It also won the What Car? safety award for 2019 when it scored the highest in the Euro NCAP crash test. Our Mercedes Specialists in Melbourne tell us why this hatchback is a great car.
Mercedes-Benz A-Class: A superior drive
The A-class is a well-deserved winner that combines interior comfort with innovative technology. It has a sleek, well-designed exterior making it a popular premium small car choice. The new model is slightly bigger and smarter than previous models, but the look stays mostly the same only slightly more refined. Of course, if you want an even sportier look you can still opt for the AMG Line package. Sat nav, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard with the car and who doesn’t love being able to say, ‘Hey Mercedes’.
In the safety awards, the A-class showed superiority in the protection offered during a crash and also in its crash avoidance technology making the A-class one of the safest small cars to drive. The drive assist technology includes lane centring, speed limit detection, guided lane changes and adaptive cruise control.

Our Volkswagen mechanics in South Melbourne regularly service and repair VW Golfs. The Volkswagen Golf GTI is one of the most popular hatchbacks amongst Aussie car buyers. The endurance of the Golf brand is a testament to its functionality and style. There was, however, talk of the next generation Golf GTI going hybrid but Herbert Diess, the Volkswagen Group Chairman, has revealed this is not the case.
The Future of Volkswagen’s Golf GTI
The new Golf GTI is expected to unveil in Germany in September 2019 (set for sale in 2020) but it will not be the hybrid everyone was expecting, it will rather be sticking with its petrol engine which will be tweaked for better performance. This popular car is known for its decent fuel economy and well-liked for its sporty take on the VW Golf. It’s latest unveiling will uphold its place as a benchmark amongst sporty performance-focused hatchbacks. It will still come with a standard 2.0-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder engine and front wheel drive. All the expected safety features such as autonomous emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, rear-traffic alert and forward collision warning will be offered. Fans of the Golf GTI are happy to hear this news and Volkswagen looks set to keep its enthusiastic fan base happy.
