I haven't needed the lane assist or blind spot! Not got the distronic either. There is already the collision prevention as standard, at least in UK. My last car, an 18yr old Corsa, had nothing!
This Engineered by AMG has everything! The thing I missed out on was the opening backrest with the two cup holders! Very useful!
Hope this makes your choice better informed!Edited by: Lynne

Personally I would go AMG option over Driver Assist.<div id="isChromeWebToolbarDiv" style="display:none">


It already comes with collision prevention, as Lynne mentioned, and as some people have pointed out it, having these "safety" features, even though they are passive, can lead to lazy and unaware drivers as they start to rely on the warnings rather than keeping their wits about them whilst driving.

Hi tommyk,

Welcome to the forum. I'm also from Victoria and have ordered A250 with the lot. I personally wanted the Driver Assist package, mostly for Distronic Cruise control (I've always wanted this function) and using it a few times on test drives have found it is awesome. I also went with the Exclusive package, figuring that it would be easier to keep clean and I love the heated seats, once again on a test drive I found that with cold legs they warmed me up within a few minutes and it felt great. I'm still waiting on my car but I think if you would like to go the AMG then just do it. It's fairly good value when you compare with nearly any other brand to option leather seats.


Anyway let us know what you do in the end.
