If you're looking for the wheeled equivalent of a brute in a suit then take a glance at this – the locally-assembled (CKD) 2022 Mercedes-AMG GLA 35.
It's the brand's latest launch here and you can see it at the WapCar Auto Show Exhibition that's happening over the weekend (1- to 3-July 2022).
And oh, it's not a model to miss. Pekan assembly places power at an attractive pricepoint: RM 363,888 (OTR with SST, sans insurance), and that buys you a creamy, 306 PS / 400 Nm powertrain combo that will launch you and your passengers to 100 km/h in just 5.2 seconds.

Handling chops come courtesy of AMG Ride Control suspension and AMG Dynamic Select drive modes (Slippery, Comfort, Sport, Sport+, and Individual) further sharpens things up depending on situation.
