Mercedes this new A-Class is vital to its fortunes. Good job it’s so then.

Next steps

is it?

Goodbye, high-rise oddity, lower, wider and more five-door hatch alternative to A3 and BMW 1-Series rivals. Mercedes has at turned the A-Class into a contender. Third time you could say.

It’s a good looking with a lot going on: rising lines, bonnet creases, LED you certainly couldn’t call it It’s especially head-turning optional big wheels, black bits, pointy ‘Sport’ and huge sunroof. The lure of the list is compelling.

Beneath it is a front-drive chassis, a new engine and, says Mercedes, of extras you normally only fi nd on a and E-Class. You can turn your into a futuristic high-tech if you have the cash.


It’s very to drive, and we mean that in a way. The A-Class feels solid and expensive not bulky, superbly built and cosseting. isolated from the outside to an astonishing degree. Road and noise are near non-existent, the hushing along like a far pricier machine. Bumps are expertly, miles are devoured relish: as we say, just a Merc.

The dash is blending sporty SLS cues the elegance of bigger Mercs. surfaces, lots of soft-touch and soft leather all help.


A perfectly passable A-Class costs less £19,000 but the ones you really are around £21,000-plus. There are trims, with SE and Sport most sales but Engineered by AMG most interest. You’ll want the optional iPhone kit. Economy is high and are low: the base 74.3mpg is the first Merc to drop 100g/km.
