It might be the cheapest proper AMG model you can buy, but the Mercedes A35 AMG still boasts some impressive vital statistics.

Yes, it's essentially an A Class, but it's one that's been to the AMG tuning experts from the little town of Affalterbach in Germany, and has come back with not only a more aggressive look and four-wheel drive, but also a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine boosted to 302bhp.
