Is the latest generation of Mercedes-Benz’s most compact car a match for its premium rivals? Our car:A 200 AMG Line List price when new: £28,925 Price as tested: £31,935 Official fuel economy: 42.2-47.9mpg (WLTP) Read more long-term tests March 27, 2019 Fuel economy this week: n/a mpg The A-Class has certainly made a good first impression. My car, in Polar White, looks every inch the premium hatchback, with its long nose, set-back cabin and low-slung body adding an air of sportiness. Luckily, the weather hasn’t been too bad since it arrived, so it still looks white, but I’m assuming it will have to cleaned on a regular basis to keep that unspoiled Polar whiteness – as opposed to a we’ve-just-started-drilling-for-oil-in-the-Arctic colour that it could quickly assume in a grimy, spring-showery London. The cabin is also very impressive.

You voted. We listened. In the weeks leading up to 2019 San Francisco Beer Week, The Chronicle asked readers: Which five beers deserve to be in the inaugural class of our NorCal Beer Hall of Fame?

Meanwhile, we convened an in-house panel of beer experts, and we cast our own votes. We assigned equal weight to the results of the expert vote and the results of the reader vote as we determined the final outcome. … [Read more...] about Introducing the NorCal Beer Hall of Fame’s inaugural class
Channel Zero is going off the air. Syfy has canceled the horror anthology after four seasons. Creator and showrunner Nick Antosca announced the news Wednesday on Instagram. "After 4 seasons, Channel Zero is no more on Syfy," Antosca wrote. "I loved making this show and would have loved to do more … but I can't complain too much about doing four stories I loved with people who I loved working with." The cancellation of Channel Zero comes on the heels of Z Nation also leaving the NBCUniversal-owned channel. The series' six-episode seasons were each based on popular creepypastas, scary stories shared widely online. Antosca adapted the stories with credit going to the authors of each piece of source material. Channel Zero was always a niche series for Syfy; its first season in 2016 was its most-watched with an average of 543,000 same-day viewers. The most recent season, which aired over six consecutive nights in October 2018, averaged just 265,000 viewers, along with a scant … [Read more...] about ‘Channel Zero’ Canceled at Syfy After 4 Seasons
