AMG without a stupid great V8 in it? Nah. That's the whole point of them.

Nothing Italian

AMG do some nice stuff with engines but that alone does not make a car cool.


Uncool.

uncool. It looks a bit crass/brash IMHO.

If it's a peach to drive, I could be convinced to change my mind.

It's a halo model to make the £279 pm Aclass drivers feel good by association. I saw one of those CLA wagons today; utterly vile cockroach on alloys!

There appear to be two sub-zero options yet no seriously uncool one.

Elvis you noggin, sort the voting out because I wish to vote **"A ***tz car" (am I in trouble for this?) it's not remotely cool and never will be.
Could well be a hoot to drive mind.

** Admins, it actually showed the whole word. **** with a Z.

That's ****ing hideous. I dislike most modern Mercs. My dislike of that one is above my average level of dislike for them.

Mercedes make really great engines, but normally the rest of the car is very average.

Uncool

I love these things. And also spooky that i was thinking about polling one only the other day

Not sure if it's cool but I'd definitely have one

sums up how I feel - I think I love them, so for me, the sheer excitement and oomph makes it cool

I do think it is cool but as noted earlier, an AMG should really have a dirty great engine with a thunderously filthy soundtrack. Now I'm not saying there's anything wrong with a 2.0 turbo that produces around 370bhp, but it's not very AMG
