Up on MB's site.

Starts at $35k+ and about $2k more for 4matic.

This or the 2 Series? :)
Another year for the A45..

Just glimpsed through the specs - wireless charging plus 5 USB-C ports!?

The msrp is pretty reasonable. Basically paying 10k more than a civic hatch touring but you get more HP, AWD, better interior, better tech, doesn't look riced out...

I read on Car & Driver that the AMG models have more robust suspensions. Does this mean it will last longer than the base model's or will just mean more expensive maintenance down the road?

The rear suspension links and bearings are strengthened for the AMG as well.

It means your butt and spine will hate you on long rides. Longevity wise, it will last similar to base.

damn the base model is pretty packed with features already

could be a hot sell considering its in direct competition in terms of pricing with the GTI with practically the same specs

Isn't it about 20% more expensive than a GTI?

Don't think tech is better as theres less safety tech features

Many may prefer this bc of AWD, which the GTI doesn't have
