Which Merc A-Class has the better chassis?


I have read conflicting information from several sources re the type of rear suspension available on the new Mercedes A-Class hatchback. I understand that some get torsion beam while others get multi link, but unable to get a definitive list on those that get the multi link type.

Some say that the A 250 only gets it, another that both the A 200 AMG Line and A 250 get the it. While finally, another source said that if the automobile is fitted with 19-inch alloys even in lesser powerful engine variants it will get the better rear suspension setup. Any ideas which info is the right one? I am looking to see if it's possible to get the multi link rear suspension on the upcoming A 180 petrol AMG Line or whether it will need 19-inch alloys to make the switch.

Should I go for a Mazda6 diesel now?

Just read your review on the Mazda6. Is it wise to buy a diesel nowadays considering all the bad press? Do you think the government will come down on diesels hard in the future as all you can hear is "dirty diesel"? Or would you advise one to go for a hybrid instead?
