I love carwow's content a lot, but I don't value Matt's opinion on Mercedes because he's a "fanboy". He always forces it to be good where its not. How can it have the best practicality when its boot space is the least? C'mon Matt, you can do better

The soft touch in the rear of the Audi missing is weird as the last 8V has it across the range , the Mk7 Golf never had it. The plastics lower down was best in class with nice feeling plastics , disappointed the Audi has dropped its finishes.

In January 2020 I ordered a white A250 with Premium Plus Package. Forget the 1.3 engines! But due to the world going to sh*t – dealer has advised lead time is now March 2021! But I’ll wait. For me, it’s just a lovely car inside & out.

**Edit** Dealer has called to say my new car is ready picking it up 15th October 2020! Can’t wait.

I hate how the marketers call these "entry level cars". Entry to what? Talking down to the customers is what it is. How about calling them what they are?

Any chance you could use the same segment of vehicle for a plug in hybrid test. I know the 1 series does not have one but A class and new A3 do.

The Audi A3 looks quite cool but inside that dashboard looks like it was stacked up by a toddler! The Golf looks awesome when I saw it in the dealership and all the materials are very premium but on camera it looks quite terrible and cheap looking, weird!
