The cheapest Mercedes’ you can buy, although the manufacturer like to distance itself anything to do with the word and to be fair it’s easy to over £25,000 on the new A-Class if you the right options. The original was back in 1998 and things moved on a lot with this new Though still a compact it has really grown up. Much has gone into making the stand out from the competition the outside looks very in a grown-up, Mercedes way. you could buy two versions. Both had doors but there was a roomier wheelbase version for an extra Now you are offered a choice of three or doors, both the same and longer than either of the old There’s a wide range of and diesel engines, four levels and a massive options

Where does it fit?

smallest model is something of failing to fit into any of the usual classes of car. Closet is the outgoing Audi A2, a car that has to capture buyers’ imaginations the previous A Class. Size-wise on a par with a Focus, although space and versatility put it closer to the C-Max. Either way, more Mondeo money anything else.

Is it for you?

A very interesting It’s one of those cars you can two ways. Logically the latest and similar rivals are as good as the and even better in certain The fact that they are cheaper too means the Mercedes seem to add up. And yet. There’s the magic of the badge, a great car and an ability to hold its value time that suddenly it a more logical choice. You to bear in mind, however, Mercedes owners haven’t very happy of late with their dealers or the quality and reliability of their Mercedes says it is addressing issues.

What does it do well?

from the good looks and the feel of quality inside and the A-Class has a versatile, comfortable The dashboard is stylish with silver accents around the and on the controls, and an expensive-looking front end to the CD player. Space is excellent and back and the seats, depending the model, fold away or completely – you can even turn the into a posh one-seater The 1.7 petrol engines is a willing and vastly better than the A150.

What doesn’t it do

Neither of these petrol is especially quiet but they do a sort of gruff charm. The is firmer than Mercedes will be used to, unless have jumped out of the old A-Class, but it is on the lesser models. Pick an version, or opt for one of the fancy wheel and options, and you’ll find suspension comfort levels with the lower profile But in reality, there’s not much wrong with the A170.

What’s it like to live

The unusual construction of the A-Class – it has a floor for strength – results in an odd of high, commanding driving but with feet stretched out in It’s not a problem but it takes used to. That height and the pillars means this is a easy car to park, while to all seats in the five-door is straightforward. an easy car to drive, with a five-speed gearchange that’s than the six-speed in more models. Mercedes does, insist in sticking with its stupid single stalk for indicators and wipers. The washers be the most awkward we have encountered.

Would we buy it?

This is an extremely small car that we’d be to own. It feels like has got the quality right, although time will tell, and of their dealers certainly need a kick up the backside it comes to service. The 1.7-litre version is a good choice and so too is the SE trim level – it adds air fog lights and an upgraded stereo for £300. It is expensive, but in reality it cost any more than cheaper rivals as it will its value well.
