The 1997 A-Class didn’t do a impersonation of a real Mercedes-Benz. It though, leave one notable After a test car went side up in the hands of a Swedish — the infamous moose incident — Mercedes together a fix that included control, the first time significant safety feature was on a small car.

So the mythical can take the credit for introducing the that little cars offer the same sophisticated technology as big ones.

The 2005 remake includes three- and body styles, starting the A150 Classic three-door, at $29,900.

A Merc for only What’s the catch? Well, the 1.5-litre four-cylinder produces 70kW of power and 140Nm of It’s the slowest 30 grand in For obvious reasons, it’s solely with a five-speed gearbox.

The A170 Classic three-door costs $34,400 and the five-door is The 1.7-litre produces 85kW of so it’s no bitumen shredder

However, it is strong enough to with an automatic option. has opted for a continuously variable (CVT), which costs an $2500.

Further along the scale, the 100kW 2.0-litre Avantgarde (a faux sporty three-door costs $40,400 and the Elegance (as in luxury decor) is at $42,900.

All three engines, light and compact, are relatively with only two valves a for example, and no variable valve

Performance, in the true sense of the will arrive later in the with the 142kW A200 A direct-injection turbo diesel will probably be added to the as well.

The 2005 A-Class body is than the original, with use of ultra high-strength steel and bonded joints, to improve protection. Six airbags are now standard.

It the sandwich floor, designed to a space into which the mounted engine/transmission assembly is in a frontal collision, rather being pushed straight into the cabin.

The MacPherson front suspension layout A new parabolic spring axle, by two Watts linkage struts, is to provide improved body resistance and precise wheel Progressive rate dampers are fitted, along with brakes at both ends.

We the five-door A170 Elegance, the CVT and a few other options, about worth before on road

It’s a hefty price for a car with shopping trolley though the 1.7 is fine for city where it trundles along the wide, tractable mid-range and great fuel economy on unleaded.

When you want responsive acceleration — to change lanes on an arterial or overtake — the 1.7’s of power is apparent. The CVT keeps to tap a top end that just isn’t

However, it avoids the usual and harshness problems of conventional mated to small, low-powered and is particularly smooth in operation.

The car had a quirk in which the engine failed to immediately respond to the usually after coasting to a stop. Nothing would for a moment, then it would to life.

After the moose debacle, the 1997 A-Class had its lowered and stiffened. The resulting was harsh, especially on the goat that pass for our roads. The new is still firm, yet it’s impressively compliant, comfortable and on all surfaces.

The electro-mechanical, speed-sensitive power is OK in town but at freeway speeds you are chasing the wheel, making adjustments to keep the car pointed

Mercedes-Benz has overhauled the A-Class to meet prospective buyers’ by making it look and feel a genuine luxury car, than a toy.

When it to frills, the standard equipment though, is still skinny. The includes 15-inch steel power front windows, a single CD player, remote locking and a trip computer. The adds 16-inch alloys, wipers and automatic headlights.

The and functionality of the controls, including the steering wheel, clear instruments and the location of the information screen in the centre of the instrument make the A-Class dashboard and safe to navigate. However, little oddment storage at hand.

The quality of materials is light ahead of the original model, as is the of fit and finish. The firmly padded, driver’s seat has long cushion height/tilt adjustment and a wheel (not on the A150) are provided.

Although you sit quite to the floor, low window sills, at the front, and the high roof a lovely sense of openness, and light. Vision is unobstructed in all

Rear seat space, by car standards, is generous and wide doors permit easy Tall occupants travel in The seat itself is firm, a long cushion and supportive Three restraint anchors are on the of the seat.

Mercedes-Benz has now delivered the car the A-Class have been in the first

Quality, refinement and comfort three key Mercedes ingredients it forgot to include in the original have been lavished on the

The A-Class is still an expensive car. Look at what you can buy for similar money and it’s that the proposition here is premium dollars for a premium
