Win a chance to take the all-new Mercedes-Benz A-Class for a long weekend test drive

Imagine your car could send a text for you. Or would automatically remember the radio station you like to listen to on the drive home from work.

Well, that dream isn’t as far away as you might think. In fact, the Mercedes-Benz A-Class can do all of that, and more—and you could get the chance to try it for yourself, thanks to Mercedes-Benz. We’re giving away a long weekend test drive of the new Mercedes-Benz A-Class just in time for you to be able to nip away on a beach road trip over the summer.

All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning, is watch Gemma McCaw zip around town with FQ’s editorial director Shelley Ferguson—and then answer the super easy question below. We’ll draw the winner on Friday 11 January.

Fresh from being named the AA Driven New Zealand Car of the Year, as well as the safest car launched in 2018, the all new A-Class is a next-level intuitive driving experience. The more time you spend in it, the more it tunes in to your habits, until it basically knows you better than you know yourself! For example, it will remember your favourite songs, how you get to work every day and can even tell you the fastest route and speed limit based on real-time information. It will begin to work out what your radio station of choice is, can assist you in receiving and sending voice-activated text messages (don’t text and drive!) and will even vibrate the steering wheel to warn you if you’re getting too close to the centre line or barrier. Basically, it’s your BFF in a car-shaped package.
